Antwon – Dark Denim
Here are three albums that people claimed Yeezus was influenced by: DEEP WEB MAD LOVE by Death Grips, Gen by B L A C K I E, and Dark Denim by Antwon. Notice the drastic swing from the punk/noise of “3RD WORLD GRRL” to the soulful chops of “RARE 2000S” that sound like they’d be right at home on a Little Brother record. Sounds like Yeezy might have been listening to Antwon back on Valentines Day when this dropped.
That swing from one sound to another is a big part of Antwon’s appeal – he encompasses many human emotions instead of just drilling away at one facet of his personality. He misses girls but he also calls them bitches. He’s depressed but he’s also partying hard. IN DARK DENIM is supremely punk, painfully personal and explicitly not giving a fuck about what you think. Antwon’s got a serious catalog of work, so be sure to check out all his previous work, too.
