Just three days ago, Cape Town resident, Damascvs, released a visual album entitled Swishascus. The project is in collaboration with Swishy Delta – the very same visual artist who crafted the cover art for Damascvs’s last release, ‘A View, Her Dove’ . As a 12-minute AV experience this somewhat throws our usual Track of the Day format out the window, but it’s worth your time.
Mashed together it features all new material and also a welcome new addition of Damascvs himself opening the piece with a couple of verses. Musically, it sticks to his left field eclectic idiosyncrasies – featuring an amalgam of hip hop samples, jazz horns and keys and the asymmetry of his signature beat splicing. But the project is a collaboration with both artists contributing to all aspects of the project. It’s Friday, so sit back with your headphones on and let the heady haze wash over you.
You can catch Damascvs and many others tonight at the Assembly for the launch of Christian Tiger School’s new album, Chrome Tapes.
