Cleophus & Lightskinjohn Share Collection 'Small Talk'

C.C. / Thursday 8th August, 2019 1:37PM

Tāmaki Makaurau hip hop artists Cleophus and Lightskinjohn (Shiraz & LSJ / RISERA) have dropped a six track meeting of minds sporting the name Small Talk, presented by ever-adventurous local independent imprint / collective The Grow Room. Described by Cleophus as "a conversation inspired by a conversation", Small Talk was written and recorded on Karangahape Road, conceived as a response to the gritty yet creatively fertile inner-city strip. The rapper ducks and dives around Lightskinjohn's on-point loops, grooves and slice of life on-location field recordings (via iPhone) – tackling such K Rd-relevant themes as poverty, night life, and working to give back to the district's unique community. Open your ears to Cleophus and Lightskinjohn's Small Talk here...

'Small Talk' is out now on Bandcamp via The Grow Room.
