For our latest episode, we have a special, double header. Philadelphia rapper Zilla Rocca talks to us about getting into noir, the process of rapping, how his new mixtape Neo Noir differs from previous projects, his history with electronic music and heading out on tour with Premrock, Curly Castro and DJ Halo.
Unfortunately, the audio cut out at the beginning of our conversation, but you didn’t miss much except for introductions. He’s the Rapper, I’m the DJ. Now you’re caught up.
We also had Yvette in the studio to discuss the proper pronunciation of their name, about antecedents for their sound, the Godmode Enters Fall record release show, why Art Blakey is the greatest, making their guitars sound like anything but guitars and our hopes for an upcoming tour.
