Today, Tiohtià:ke / Montreal-based, St. Vincent-born artist Skiifall returns to share a new three song mixtape, WOIIYOIE TAPES Vol. 1.LISTEN HERE.
WOIIYOIE TAPES Vol 1 comes on the heels of the recently-released single ‘Bentayga Dust‘ and features 3 new tracks, ‘My Gully‘, ‘Lost Angeles‘ and ‘Bagga Yute‘. With production duties handled by Yamasoto, Freakey!, DoomX and Jay Century, the three song project builds a cohesive atmosphere on hard-hitting, yet melodic instrumentalism and energetic and dynamic flows.
With his debut single ‘Ting Tun Up‘, a track that The FADER called “one great debut single”,Skiifall firmly marked his place on the global music stage. He followed that single up with the aforementioned ‘Bentayga Dust‘, dealing with the duality between peace and discord the song puts the potency in Skiifall’s singular style on display. With these releases to his name alone, the rapper has been embraced by media globally, from BBC Radio 1xtra, Clash, Complex, NTS, HotNewHipHop, Lyrical Lemonade, Exclaim, and locally by FBi Radio – just a small indication of how far and wide Skiifall has been felt and heard.
Already finding fans in the likes of Virgil Abloh, Jorja Smith, Kenny Beats, Benji B and OVO’s Oliver El-Khatib, and labelled “a distinctive global presence” by Alternative Press, Skiifall is rapidly consolidating his reputation as one of global hip hop’s most disruptive burgeoning forces. He has earned notable cosigns in the fashion space as ‘Lost Angeles‘ was recently featured in a promotional video for the Louis Vuitton x NBA Collection 2021 and he was chosen to model for acclaimed Montreal-based label JJJOUND. As inspired by the bashment of his St. Vincent homeland as he is the postmodern Atlanta icon Young Thug, Skiifall’s multifaceted output is representative of a musical DNA that crosses cultural boundaries.
