Incorporating classic Boom Bap production interwoven with his unique takes on decolonization and the incorporation of Indigenous empowerment in his music. In his second solo project entitled Abstract, Calmplx treads into new waters away from his partner in rhyme Ina, in an effort to prove he is more than capable of holding his own outside of Indigenous Cats.In our latest installment of Step Off! Radio, we had Calmplx come on the show to discuss his brand-new solo project entitled Abstract, where he treads into new waters away from his partner in rhyme Ina, in an effort to prove he is more than capable of holding his own outside of Indigenous Cats.
Continuing his deep affinity for beats crafted in the vein of early 90s boom bap style hip-hop production, as promised on Abstract Calmplx has assembled a crew of producers to craft a backdrop of all original production to serve as the sonic backdrop of his second solo album.
