minneapolis-based, eau claire-bred jazz-rap collective doks robotiks sounds like what would emenate from a cocktail shaker filled with equal parts danny brown and takuya kuroda: frenetic, volatile energy refined with silky smooth overtones.  the octet’s debut full-length has been percolating for nearly a year-and-a-half, but now it’s arrived; you can stream their self-titled album here ahead of their release show at 7th street entry tonight.

in the music video for the album’s lead-off single, “pavane,” guitarist rob hagen settles into the director’s chair to capture a monochromatic rendition of the group’s dynamic, juxtaposing the precise, rapid-fire delivery and interplay between gumm and konstant with textured full-color crowd footage of the entire doks ensemble during the track’s hook.  check out the clip for “pavane” below.
