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.
