Erick The Architect Plays the Keys in “Fruit Fruit Punch in Bora Bora” Video
As one-third of the inimitable Flatbush Zombies, Erick "Arc" Elliott, better known as Erick The Architect plays multiple roles. With his talents at both rapping and production, he's a key part of the group's sound. His latest move to showcase his skills is with his new instrumental track "Fruit Fruit Punch in Bora Bora," which he released with an accompanying video.
The track will land on Erick's forthcoming instrumental album, Arcstrumentals 2, due Feb. 16.
In the animated video, which is the work of Alex Sarzosa, two people are enjoying a sunny beach getaway. Everything changes when one of them takes a sip from a seemingly magical red plastic cup. The scene switches to a party, where Erick is running to the stage to become the entertainment for the night. He joins his band onstage, and the screen fills with tripped-out imagery, complete with animals, mushrooms and swirling flowers.
The music itself is spacey and piano-driven, with some calming saxophone play in the mix. With the multitude of instruments involved, it's interesting how the song flows so smoothly. Definitely something to relax to after a long day at work.
While Erick's crew, Flatbush Zombies, have been relatively quiet for the last year or so, they've still been making headlines. Group member Juice dropped a solo song last year titled "Lava," and enlisted Erick to direct the video. In 2018, the trio performed at the yearly tribute to A$AP's fallen leader, Yams Day. They will also perform at Coachella, and are freeing their forthcoming album, Vacation In Hell, on April 6.
