SB The Moor - El Negro (CD)
Combining virtuoso rapping with his background as a multi-instrumentalist, Signor Benedick The Moor creates music that effortlessly taps into the sound of many genres. The theatricality of his Shakespeare referencing name reveals itself most in his complex, lengthy, and heady compositions. Making an impressive debut at the age of just 19, he immediately captured the attention of The Guardian UK & The Needle Drop. Deathbomb Arc’s formal release of ‘El Negro’ adds the bonus track “h8 everyone [Enter The Black Prince]”. This hiphop tribute to pop goth groups like The Cure is not only unlike anything out there, it is also Signor Benedick The Moor’s catchiest track yet.
In addition to his solo work, he also works in the rap group True Neutral Crew alongside Daveed Diggs of clipping. (Sub Pop), Brian Kinsman of Foot Village (Northern Spy, Fat Cat, Not Not Fun), and Margot Padilla of I.E. (Deathbomb Arc).
“This dude’s got too much talent to be hanging in the underground too much longer, seriously.” - The Needle Drop
