*gravy is a collective of South Africa-based artists making waves in the experimental electronic beatscene.
A somewhat newly formed crew with years of experience in the game between them, comprising of established as well as up-and-coming artists; *gravy is on that next tip. The dudes mix elements from genres such as hip-hop, trap, R&B, jazz, funk, amongst others to create left-centre productions. Members include; Sibot, Dank, liver, Card on Spokes, RVWR, Christian Tiger School, O’ltak, Richard the IIIrd, Narch, Slabofmisuse, and Mr. Sakitumi.
The first installment of the *gravy project dropped yesterday, in the form of an 11-track beat-tape “001”, offered as a free download. The release is dope as reflects the artists’ new directions in terms of beatmaking, and contrasts bass heavy beats with slower, synthed out joints. All in all, a diverse tape encompassing a variety of production styles by sought after local artists, capturing the right mix of party and anti-party beats.
Each musician in the outfit adds their own unique flavour to the project, and the album serves as a showcase of groundbreaking local productions.
