Vex Ruffin and legendary Fab 5 Freddy – visual artist, Yo! MTV Raps, the dude name-checked in Blondie’s “Rapture,” etc – have teamed up to create new track “The Balance.”
This is Fab 5 Freddy’s first musical project since “Change the Beat,” 30 years ago. Fab hopped onto Vex’s track after an intro from his friend Ben Marlowe, the director/animator of Vex’s new video.
Fab 5 Freddy says, “I liked the way this idea organically developed and I began to see my involvement as a sort of art performance piece. The track reminded me of cool dance records that downtown NY DJ’s played back then in the 80’s at places like The Mudd Club, The Garage, Area, Danceteria and Nells where I hung out so I put myself in that mindset when working on my lyrics for this song.”
