November / December 2010
It’s been a long time between drinks for west coast MC and wordsmith Drapht. Having had a massive 08 and 09, most of 2010 has been spent teaming up with “Brothers Grimm” producer Trials working on the follow up. Drapht has been holed up in a home studio writing, crossing out, rewriting, cutting, pasting, cutting again, deleting, occasionally banging his head against a wall and then finally kicking back and smiling. The success of 2008’s Brothers Grimm, which spawned the massive radio hits Jimmy Recard and Falling (Jimmy Recard was the #2 most played track on JJJ in 08 and was #10 in the Hottest 100 as well as receiving Nova rotation and V Ripe Clip of the Week) has brought with it a range of pressures and expectations, not only from Drapht’s fans but also from the man himself, who isn’t exactly known for resting on his laurels and not moving forward.
So has it been worth the wait and the blood sweat and tears? Well, we can’t give you the whole picture until the album is out early next year (the album title is “The Life of Riley” by the way) but the first taste is about to be revealed. It’s called Rapunzel and it’s the perfect way to lead into summer, let alone an album. To quote Drapht "The love hate relationship that is Rapunzel- a subject that I had that was extremely close to my heart, so naturally the song itself was one of the easiest to write, but one of the hardest to nail in the recording process. Has to be one of my favourites to date, has made me fall in love with her all over again!"
The best way for people to get an idea of the full scope of the album is to come along to the Rapunzel tour where selected cuts from the new record will get a showing, as well as a wide smattering from Drapht’s back catalogue.
It’s going to be the only shows this year, and it’s going to be big.
