LISTEN / SPAZZ CARIDGAN: DOIDOIT
Back in August we featured a first look at Spazz Cardigan, a talented young musician who is back with his new single: DOIDOIT. Young, hyped and ready to unleash his talents and reflections on his life and the world. We’re proud of musicians like Spazz Cardigan; risking it all, fighting odds and being himself.
Spazz Cardigan was raised on a diet of Nsync and Michael Jackson before discovering Queen at age 10 sparked a religious determination to create and perform. He began gigging at 11, playing in a handful of punk cover bands while learning how to produce and mix music on a Tascam 4-track tape recorder.
After applying to college with no way of affording it, he opted instead to move to Nashville two days after graduating high school to pursue making music full-time. He found early footing in the city by falling in with a hip-hop collective called The Diatribe, where he incubated his production technique. He wrote and recorded his LP ‘I’ while moving couch to couch over the greater part of two years before self-releasing it in early 2017.
Spazz is a product of the Millennial post-genre landscape; a studio polymath and an electric live performer with a wide array of influences spanning Kanye West to Bjork, David Bowie to Sun Ra. His imaginative, textural pop defies simple definition and transcends genre with a uniquely accessible voice.
