Death by Tapioca Flies High on “Airtime”

I really like this one, especially since I’m so damned tired of the cold temperatures in the DMV (plus, you know, the panoramic). I think DBT’s tired of the cold in Toronto and the panini too. It explains why he’s making “I’m going to fly with a beautiful woman to Japan and the beach” types of songs. I, for one, am here for it.

“Airtime” highlights DBT’s somewhat quirky nature (that we’ve seen on his previously-released songs like “Out Like Trout”) and his honesty, which we’ve seen on the loverman track “Take it There.” He’s not there to just have smashy time with his lady friend. He wants to take these trips for their collective mental health (I mean, winter is when SAD is prevalent, after all) and their experiences seem to be set to “great.” The beat, produced by JU$TUNLTD, is breezy, fun and lends itself well to some jetsetting adventures. I’m also a fan of the flow here which reminds me a bit of a strange-but-it-works mix between Logic and Juicy J’s methodical flow on “Slob on My Knob.”

If you’re like me and you’re ready for the winter (and the pandemic) to subside, this one’s for you. If you want it to end so you can enjoy travelling to new places (or even some old ones), this song’s definitely for you. Heck, even if you’re staying put, you can appreciate the happiness exuded from this one and the effort put into it–kind of like a Mac Miller track. Check it the visualizer below and remember to do the thing and support dope music in all its forms.
