Video Premiere: MC Melodee x Cookin Soul "Gotta Get Away"

Dutch microphone-mistress (and OKP First Look!) MC Melodee returns to the set with a new video shot on location in Madrid (by the approporately named “Chancleta Films” AKA director Pacool). The song “Gotta Get Away” is pure mellowness composed of a silky jazz-inflected track  from regular collaborator Cookin’ Soul and Melodee’s infectious rasp on the rhyme, straight Brooklyn-in-Amsterdam flow as she chats “au re-vawr like a rock stawr” to everyday stress. The holiday theme is perfectly timed for spring fever here in the states–or Queensday in the Netherlands (I don’t know but based off these pics Melodee sent us, it’s mainly an excuse for Dutch people to get mad–see after the jump). This is a teaser for a new full-length Melodee mixtape dropping soon (possibly by the end of the month) and featuring cameos from Chuck Inglish, Oh No, Smif “N Wessun and a whole lot more. Be on the look-out! We’ll keep you posted and check www.MCMelodee.com for more deets.
