The newest project by Edmonton Hip-Hop duo the Dirty Dudes is out now on Apple Music, Spotify, Youtube, and for free download on Soundcloud, linked below. The project was recorded with a DIY style, using nothing but a single microphone and Ableton in a bedroom studio. This, and the themes addressed in the tape reflect the duo’s and Absurd Collective’s beliefs that art – specifically music – should be free, universally accessible, and explicitly local. In the project rapper Dirty Dev discusses and resolves themes of nihilism, addiction, death, absurdism, and religion over heavily sampled, complex, and experimental Hip-Hop beats by producer Michael Shrimp.
Edmonton Hip-Hop duo, the Dirty Dudes, has just released visuals for the first single off their upcoming project. Like all their music, it is downloadable for free on the Absurd Collective SoundCloud page, and will soon be available on Apple Music, Spotify, and Tidal. Asteroids in the Void comes out August 30th, 2017.
The Absurd Collective, in collaboration with Latitude 53, is having a gallery show and we want to fill it with your art! Not only that, but we’ll pay you to make it! The Absurd Collective is looking for youth artists in Edmonton aged 13-24 to create visual art of any kind to be displayed for two weeks in August at Latitude 53. Selected artists will also have all their materials and cost of production payed for by a micro-grant from us. The goal is to create a myriad of art with the theme of summer in Edmonton, that is created over the course of the summer as a representation of that experience. Artists will have the opportunity to meet and work with other young, local artists and display their work in a gallery space for free. We are looking for project ideas of all kinds and mediums, so be creative with what you want to make and how it relates to the theme! Submissions end June 16th, we’re looking forward to hearing from you.
