The last time we checked in with League510, they were releasing their debut retail EP, Believe In The League. It’s been a minute since then, but the League hasn’t lost a step – or their signature feel-good swag . On the contrary, the Bay Area foursome, comprised of Monty, TK, Mr. Knowitall, and DJ Blacksmith, are poised for a triumphant return, complete with a newly developing sound, and are celebrating that return by flipping Flying Lotus’ “Computer Face/Pure Being.”

After stumbling across the track as background music for a Cartoon Network commercial, the League realized the beat was simply “begging to be rapped over,” and the rest, says League510, was history. The end result was the flipped track, which the crew dubbed “Soul of a Synth,” a title, according to League510, inspired by “the super swinging, heavy, and soulful drum cadence and the layered 8-bit, video game-style synths.” League510 impressively rides the off-kilter production, in what comes off sounding like a completely natural collision of the League’s bouncy flows and Flying Lotus’ less-than-orthodox production. “We made the track to display our style, the positive attitude and strong lyrical ability,” explains the League. “We’re back – and better than ever.”
