about

On Running For Your Love (TIMEKODE No Love Remix), Memetic transforms a soon-to-be-released mellow love song by Freak Motif featuring Lady C into a rousing Hip-Hop anthem about the twisted love police seem to have for black and minority bodies. Featuring recordings of newscasts + infamous incidents of police violence, and urgent verses from Ottawa rhyme legends Hyfidelik and Bender, this is the lead single from TIMEKODE X Vol. 2 - Freak Motif x Dark Maat'r (MTL) coming in September.

---

FROM FREAK MOTIF: 'Running From Your Love' is the 2nd release from Freak Motif featuring Lady C. The hypnotic groove was originally written as a heavy afrobeat riff, the Freaks' bread and butter. But the mystery and longing of the mellow hiphop groove just felt right. Lady C's lyrics tell the story of a love gone wrong, the vulnerability and confusion of being trapped in a relationship when you 'just can't seem to get away'. Once again featuring the Busty and the Bass horns (and keys!), Running From Your Love will be released on Freak Motif's upcoming album 'Hot Plate'.

FROM TIMEKODE: It feesl like with the police, if you're black or racialized, it doesn't matter whether you comply or run anymore. At the same time when we listened to Lady C’s lyrics, the idea of trying to run from a force that’s supposed to be positive but actually has an appetite for destroying you was really compelling too. Musically, the idea was to give it a harder edge with the new drums + bass groove, and to use audio from newsclips and known incidents to re-contextualize the lyrics about love in a surreal kind of way. The ideas and performances provided by Hyf and Bender tied this Hiphop remix together.
