about

Space People's two releases to date place him firmly at the forefront of avant-garde boom-bap, revealing a sort of straight-from-the-cassette futurism that combines the spirit and vocabulary of 70's pop mastermind Charles Stepney with the grit, glitch and glide of final-form Dilla. His 2015 debut, "SHMM" (Styles Upon Styles), is a 20-track vibe marathon that finds its creator drawing as much from his sample library as from his own estimable abilities as a multi-instrumentalist, resulting in an exploratory beat tape that defies simple classification. Of the genre-bending "SHMM," XLR8R writes, "The untimely ruckus and cosmic-induced reach and feel of the tape is refreshingly unique and off-putting in the best possible manner." His follow-up EP, "UBS" (Cadence Collective) is a love letter to his hip-hop forebears, calling to mind the magnetic funk of Native Tongues-era NY and "chop-up-the-soul" Kanye, while nodding slyly to the warped sonic tableaux of Alice Coltrane, Arthur Russell, and Raymond Scott. Look for his third release, "Wet," out October 2016 on Styles Upon Styles.
