The name DRGS (Adam Rushfield) & DATACRON (Patrick Laundrie) chose for their project — Satellites in Orbit — is fitting in a reversed way for the achievement that they have made.
The two artists live across the country from each other. DATACRON is based in Oregon, while DRGS lives in New York. Like satellites, worldly distance is not going to slow them down — on the contrary, these rappers are staying in place and letting the internet bring them together.
“That’s True” showcases both of their home-bases while sharing stories with each other and finding unity on the chorus. “True stories from the lives of a couple of space punks” is the caption for the clip, and with the repetition of the title following production-slick verses, it does summarize the track well.
Trippy visuals match the pace of the flow (quick, with a slower and more melodic chorus) and the contrast of natural woodland to bright city streets is stark. The track has a touch of the industrial and ominous, though the charisma of our two guides pulls us through. Whether they’re in black-and-white contrast with hidden faces or addressing the camera directly, Satellites in Orbit have every intention of pulling you into their space.
