Swamp Thing – The Grindhouse EP & “123″ video
The Grindhouse EP is the first look at Swamp Thing, the brainchild of Timbuktu, Chokeules, & Savilion. Inspired by good rap & bad b-movies, backed by Savilion’s production, coming soon to a drive-in near you.
With a self-titled album dropping in the fall, the EP is just a glimpse into the world of Swamp Thing. The hard-hitting video for their first single, “123″, gives an idea of what’s to come. Three well established artists in their own right join forces to do what they do best: making dope hip hop and rocking hype live shows, fine-tuned from years of work and countless performances.
Long time collaborators TImbuktu (Toolshed, Teenburger, Backburner) and Chokeules (Toolshed, Backburner) have finally teamed up with fellow Toronto emcee/producer Savilion (Creature Box, producer for many artists) to form a group unlike anything they’ve done before. Each member has been contributing to the scene for over a decade, recording, touring, and putting out music. Both Savilion and Timbuktu are also producers/engineers with credits ranging from Sadat X to Awol One, while Timbuktu and Chokeules have performed at festivals SXSW, NXNE, CMW and Under Pressure. They’ve also performed with notable acts such as Aceyalone (Freestyle Fellowship), GZA (Wu-Tang Clan), Lootpack (Stone Throw), El Da Sensei (Artifacts), and many more.
Swamp Thing combines the trio’s experience to create party anthems and soundtracks, ranging from horror to sci-fi and everything in between. At the end of the day, this monster of a group is all about banging beats, hard rhymes, and melting faces off with rap. Stay tuned.
