Poet BlkSknn Releases New EP 'Disconnect'
The poet, songwriter and producer of hip hop music known as BlkSknn has released his latest EP album, “Disconnect.” The album contains seven original tracks for an approximate total listening time of 20 minutes. The “Disconnect” EP by BlkSknn has been described as “an audio story told by BlkSknn,” and is presented by Blk English, who describe themselves as “a collective of independent artists of all avenues with similar progressive mindsets.” Inventive, poetic, and packed with social commentary, “Disconnect” from BlkSknn has something for every hip hop fan in 2018 and beyond.
BlkSknn cites as main artistic influences a Tribe Called Quest, Nas, Musiq Soulchild, Andre 3000, Bob Marley, Curren$y, and the American graffiti artist, Jean-Michel Basquiat.
This last entry in his list of favorite creative persons may seem out-of-place, but it makes perfect sense when BlkSknn describes his aims for “Disconnect” and other music. Basquiat painted separations: rich and poor, inner and outer, integration and segregation. Like Basquiat, BlkSknn is deeply interested in human connections – and “Disconnect”-tions.
BlkSknn says of his new EP, “My project is going to share and explore the relationships we have as human beings with the things we love the most.”
One of the latest colorful minds to come from the music hotbed of Seattle, Wash., BlkSknn has been described as “providing a new refreshing perspective on hip-hop music and the music industry as a whole. The combination of his uncanny rhyme patterns and infectious flows partnered with an unparalleled lyric ability, BlkSknn has made himself into a musical tyrant over the past year.”
One source writes of a recent BlkSknn performance: “You can see the exponential growth. He's been putting in enormous amounts of time every day to expand his range in sound and substance, and it has helped him elevate his abilities in ways that will one day touch the ears and souls of millions.”
Speaking of their own aims, the Blk English collective of artists have gone on record to say, “We are aiming to build a support system for artists who want to make a change with their craft so that we all prosper rather than one person in the city reaping all the benefits.”
The “Disconnect” EP album from BlkSknn is available online worldwide from over 600 quality digital music stores now.
