Kanas City has never exactly been a hip hop hotspot.
Which is partially why VN is so surprising. Emerging earlier this year, the rapper audaciously sampled Jamie xx on the gorgeous, languid, melancholic 'Angels'.
Since then, the track has reached an international audience while its maker sits in the shadows. Working on fresh material, VN has handed his brand new track to Clash.
'Dreamer' should be instantly recognisable to anyone familiar with VN's aesthetic: dank, sodden beats courtesy of Nemesis underpin some righteously dark vocals.
Exploring the money-or-nothing culture which saturates so much of 21st century society, VN takes aim and blows apart the myth of modern consumption.
