Label: Upper Class
from Edmonton Alberta
Deemed by Dazed and Confused as "hip hop's saviour", Cadence Weapon
continues to firmly establish his legacy as a sonic pioneer while constantly
pushing the rap and electronic music envelope. Following his critically
acclaimed, Polaris Music Prize nominated albums Breaking Kayfabe and
Afterparty Babies and a two year term as Edmonton's Poet Laureate, he
returns with Hope In Dirt City out now on Upper Class Recordings. Hope In
Dirt City is a clearly defined and emotionally mature statement of intent
that represents the culmination of these experiences. Composed of a unique
hybrid of psychedelic soul, old school rap, IDM and mutant disco; Hope In
Dirt City is a groundbreaking achievement in hip hop, and Cadence Weapons'
third Polaris Music Prize nominated album.
