Graphic designer and MC for Cape Town-based rap groups Sedge Warbler and PHFAT, Disco is currently in the works of his next project, in the form of a solo release.
A first-look at the project is a video produced by the dude, and shows a smoke-up in the cut that translates to a surreal monologue expressing his thoughts and influences using distorted images and blurry visuals. The stop frame vid is reminiscent of Disco’s imagery-based style of raps, and includes an airy analog synth lead ‘church beat’ that he produced as well. The vid ends off with a snippet of a rap song in progress produced by Desert_Head off the project.
The solo project is still in the construction phase at this point in time, and when asked about it, the homie had this to say:
“The video is about as much as I want to reveal at this point. The more I reveal the more people might expect and I’ve got a lot on my plate with PHFAT and Sedge Warbler at the moment. I will take small steps and then release the album when I have more time to devote to it”.
Having that being said, peep the video and keep an eye out for Oh! Dark Arrow on Soundcloud to hear any of the church beats off the forthcoming project.
Desert Head, stylised as DESERT_HEΔD, is an experimental hip-hop producer residing in the MOM City.
Exactly 1/2 of Christian Tiger School, a psychedelic dream hop duo from Cape Town, homie Desert Head has created some trap, electronica, and raw hip-hop remixes, as well as boom bap beatstrumentals under his solo project.
In addition to his beatmaking en-devours, the dude has recently been involved in the creation of a monthly hip-hop event in Cape Town called “Button Bashers”, and is held in the Assembly Annex.
Regarding his productions, the Desert Head style involves thick drum kicks, and raw samples, significant of the 90s hip-hop era. Although the dude’s solo project has only been running for about a year now, he has performed a number dj sets, as well as live sets around the Cape Town city bowl, bringing that raw experimental hip-hop and electronica.
