COME AS U R

ARTIST STATEMENT

 

 

"romance artificial, rays of florescent
there is no sun here"

"no skin
just clicks and status"

"no hype, more healing and caress
a gentle isolation"

"a virtual seduction
no filter"

"drama, agony and triumph over tea leaf
honey and creme"

"hands up don’t shoot
misogyny in question again and again"

"don’t call this hip hop
don’t call me rapper"

"where once stood to broaden
now broken and have had, enough (has been)"

"this electronic crooning, no coon
this me no longer dancing 4 u"

"not watching me nae nah, gal
know more, watch yourself drool, jungle"

"eyes wide offensive
ice cold, not afraid no mo, so sensitive"

"always will be, simple as"
come with, me"

"come as, holy
don’t leave, hold me"

"i am, what is, dumb down
among other things"

ARTIST BIO

 

 

BLACK CRACKER is Berlin's hottest artist! VIVA TV declared him a favorite at the Berlin festival! SZIGET festival loved his show! Paleo Festival wants more! M=Maximal presents COME AS U R! The sound is his own signature Industial R&B/OFF Pop! Dubiously, combining elements ranging from Hip Hop, Soul and Jersey Club. He has recently opened for G-Easy, FKA Twigs, Big Freedia, and My Brightest Diamond as well as being mentioned in the publications V Magazine, The Guardian, Art Forum, Dazed and Confused, and the New York Times!

After a string of collaborations with artist such as Cocorosie, Creep, LCMDF and Bunny Rabbit, and being a key member of the NYC scene paving the way for peers Le1f, Zebra Katz and Cakes Da Killa, Black Cracker moved to Berlin and has easily become the artist to watch in a short amount of time. Touring Solo internationally as well as with his jazz project Grand Pianoramax, Black Cracker's charismatic, generosity is a refreshing change the more "egocentric" art and times. These skill he earned and mastered through his years as an award-winning slam poet and educator in the early days of his career after dropping out of art school. Continuing in his avaunt, versatility he can also been seen performing along side Blixa Bargeld in the project Kiku as well as in theater and dance projects received with high acclaim premiering in venues such as HAU, Berlin and Kampnagel, Hamburg. All of which making him a shoe in for the global "Made By You" campaign featuring him and is work presented by Converse. Next up is touring Japan, Australia, and the USA as well as the release of his most anticipated album to date COME AS U R!

Not one to stay put or be pigeon-holed in a time which revels in classifying artists, Black Cracker´s work has resisted and presented a problem to those who insist on stretching the chaotic web of creation into a straight evolutionary line. Acting as a prism, Black Cracker presents his expression in a myriad of forms: depending from which angle you look at him, the light he reflects will reach your eyes in a specific pattern, his sounds will reach your eardrums and make them vibrate with tenderness or action. His charisma comes from a strong sense of community and the belief that the artist and his listeners are rowing the boat together. This is an art form in itself, breaking the hierarchy between stage and audience. Video, music, design and text: Black Cracker has adapted to all these climates. Somewhere between titanium foam and silk fiber, he brings together tenderness and resilience. Of his own, Unto himself!

LOGOS

 



COME AS U R

LIVE

 

 

"Diving into the void of tenderness and technology

Video horizon and panoramic decay

An artistic contemplation of what is required to connect

Online, refresh, update, intake, exhale and other distractions from the act of breathing

Of touch

An examination and meditation on ego and lust

Nature as object, gravity and frequencies sub

All things carried just to be removed, build up and break down

And all for what

Just to be with you"
