UK Hip Hop legend Tommy Evans digs deep on atmospheric new album ‘Van Goth’ with producer The Cat Burglar, out June 9th FFO: Jehst, Del the Funky Homosapien, The Pharcyde, Ty & Verb T Tommy’s artistry has been praised by Stormzy, Dave, Example, Loyle Carner Prolific UK Hip Hop legend and activist Tommy Evans brings us his highly anticipated new LP ‘Van Goth,’ beautifully produced by The Cat Burglar. Having previously collaborated with icons including Neneh Cherry, Martina Topley-Bird, Stereo MCs, Nightmares On Wax, Andreya Triana, Larry Peace (Prince’s DJ), Foreign Beggars, Nutty P, Doc Brown and Shaolinn (Pusha T/Heirwave), Tommy Evans presents a collection of songs that display his full range of artistry, lyricism and commentary. “The Cat Burglar reached out to me via IG in April 2020. Lockdown had just started. By July of that same year we had a whole album recorded! I work quickly and our socially distanced (as was the new norm at the time) weekly sessions in the safe space of James’ (The Cat Burglar) Wandsworth studio proved to be a welcome respite from the pressures of the pandemic. What I loved about James’ sound is how textured it was, his atmospheric beats informed by a creative background dabbling in multiple genres and disciplines; the perfect soundscape for me to skate across! So, three years later, back to life and reality (to paraphrase Soul 2 Soul) the album is here! A slightly darker affair in comparison to my signature soulful sound - hence the title Van Goth (an adaptation of the final poem in my collection published in 2018) - but still replete with moments of hope, jokes and joy amidst the abstract lyricism, socio-political commentary and deep reflection. Enjoy!“
