  • Coming from deep within the city that brought us Master P’s legendary No Limit dynasty and Lil Boosie comes an artist who uniquely encapsulates the crossing point between lowslung hip hop and forward thinking, emotive electronic music.

    22-year-old New Orlean’s based Suicideyear AKA James Prudhomme brings his own Southern Gothic perspective to the table with new album ‘Color The Weather’ via LuckyMe.

    Although not his debut album per se - 2015’s ‘Japan’ on OneOhTrix Point Never’s Software label was a collection of previously released beats - ‘Color The Weather’ represents the first time Suicideyear has specifically sought to create a complete body of work, further developing different textures and sounds that were hinted on last year’s critically acclaimed ‘Hate Songs’ EP.

    Within these tracks lie the ghosts of Prudhomme’s past - a difficult childhood truncated in his teens by his family home burning down. When he left Baton Rouge for his new home in New Orleans he found himself further entrenched in the Southern Rap scene whilst he soaked up the avant-garde electronic music he found online. Balancing his tender instrumentation alongside some of the tightest drum programming in the game - these tracks twist and turn - new elements are built and destroyed constantly encompassing a huge emotional range.

    On the album’s two vocal features he expounds on this innovative and ambitious duality, Domino Records’ own Georgia filling the track with longing and hope whilst Prudhomme deconstructs the track around her.
