‘Local’ is the new EP from Derby Rap collective Local Geezers set for release across all platforms on 14th August 2020. Flying in the slipstream of Jimi Da Killa’s concept EP Cognac Arcade, that received high acclaim and was released in February 2020, The Geezers return on a full crew release showcasing multifarious new elements of their uniquely British rap sound.
„We feel this is our best work to date collectively – Bringing the fun back into our music is something we have really been focusing on in 2020 – And this is amplified by the mood you create when you are in the studio – An enjoyable session is a productive one!”
Local Geezers have made a significant impression since entering the scene, cementing solid foundations in recent years thanks to their distinctive sound, creative videos, engaging podcasts and their emphasis on quality with the work speaking for itself.
Taking a break from regularly releasing music to explore new sounds and workflows in the studio, this 4-track project showcases some of the best snippets of the group individually and collectively. Working closely with Producer Ted Loco, the sounds on the tape range from the UK Trap/Rap style (that the band are known for) to more experimental territories highlighting their sonic versatility.
The artwork designed by Rufus Wilson, pays homage to the recognisable British townhouse buildings, although this town house is in the sky reflecting on how the team have reached new heights.. Each of the Geezers main working space can be scoped through each window which is where the groundwork for the project was cemented.
