Dan Lish Egostrip Vol 1


No Comments

Hip hop culture does not only include music, it also has art, clothing and lifestyle attached to it. Dan Lish is a English illustrator who lived in New York for several years prior to resettling in the UK. He now is bringing us a collection of hip hop inspired commissions in one cohesive project. Learn more about his upcoming project by checking out the entire press release as follows.

Egostrip Vol 1 – The Essential Hip Hop Art Book, by Dan Lish
Illustrator’s stream of consciousness series led to collaborations with world-renowned music artists. Now it’s set to launch as a collectible hardback book, digital book and lithographic prints, after a Kickstarter campaign launching 3September for one month. 

English artist Dan Lish is acclaimed in the hip hop world for his recasting of MCs and producers as mages and cosmic forces. His 2017 album cover for Raekwon’s The Wild sees the rapper envisaged as a giant, towering over New York. This, commissions for De La Soul and Omar, and support from names like Pharoahe Monch and Pete Rock came about through his art series Egostrip. The project sprang organically from Lish’s irrepressible imagination, masterful pen craft and deep love for the genre’s music and culture.

Suman, ‘Crazy Over You’


No Comments

Suman is the London vocal star who is leading the way for female hip hop in the UK. Furthermore, she smashes it on her new release ‘Crazy Over You’ and choosing to work with producer; Ayo Beatz is paying off tenfold.

The track starts with a vocal sample which even the accurate of ears will
struggle to understand. But, who cares? It sounds excellent and follows a similar pattern to a lot of the modern hip hop tracks gracing the airwaves. From the intro, a stellar electronic steel drum sound appears, and it strikes deep with a low and mesmerizing character. This sound keeps playing for most of the track, and it is the leading instrumental hook, it sounds exquisite.
