Jody Bigfoot Has Finally Dropped His Insane Project ‘Duszt’
After months of teasing ‘Duszt’, finally we can enjoy the full film & LP! This hotly-anticipated release proves how much of a creative mind this artist has – not only has he got together a full album’s worth of banging tracks, but a pretty damn epic video to accompany it. ‘Duszt’ is an ambitious art project worth hyping about that’s for sure.
The film embodies a yin yang, with the first half filmed at night in urban landscapes and the second, filmed at day in Japan’s serene countryside and temples with a dot of the opposite starting and ending this structure. The album and movie invite the audience to question what it means to be alive inside a system that is harming its inhabitants and threatening the very life of its host.
Making Duszt didn’t come without it’s trials and tribulations. Jody decided to blow all his money on a trip to Japan, where he had lived previously back in 2011 for a year, alongside his friend and regular collaborator Jonjames Oxberry-Hogg to produce a feature-length music video for the album.
The pair began filming almost the minute they touched down. They maintained that momentum for the entire two months, sometimes out of the house for 36 hours at a time with no sleep. The LP is produced by German master-producer Tandaro.
Personal standout tracks for us include the energetic ‘Migi Ni Hidari’ which has a rap in Japanese, and the powerful ‘It’s All Good’, featuring ethereal synths and a powerful female vocal. ‘Temples’ shows Jody Bigfoot in his element; his signature rapping there in all its glory with a catchy beat. ‘Inefable’ has elements of dance and also of synth-pop, in an awe-some Hip-hop hybrid. We love the vocoder vocal production of final track ‘Stars’ which has a ton of drama in the production, including a stand-out saxophone solo.
The album and film are out now! Watch on youtube and stream on all the major platforms!
