An Introduction to Jonny Dee’s World of Psychedelic Hip-Hop

Alternative, Hip Hop, Rap

Here at PopPlaylister there are a lot of reasons that we’re a fan of Jonny Dee – partly because his most recent photo-shoot matches our colour scheme so well – but also because his music is pretty amazing. So in case you missed him the last time round, we’re here to catch you up…

So what is psychedelic hip-hop – well, its hard to know where to start. His album The Human Experience, which dropped earlier this year, features so many styles and references its difficult to keep up. The influence of Hendrix is obvious – especially in his psychedelic image, white Stratocaster and even perhaps a reference to the Jimi Hendrix Experience in his album name.

Musically speaking, its no more simple – take a listen to his track The Man Who Fell from the Sky and you hear at once the diverse influences and impressive talent of Jonny Dee – the chorus effected guitar that opens the track sounds like something MacDemarco would be making, but the rhythms sounds more like funk – more 80s. Then you’ve got the synth line which sounds like its straight out of a 90s hip-hop tune and, finally, Jonny’s vocals enter with a flow and darkness that’s not dissimilar to Kendrick. It’s a lot to take in and its impressively done.

Word on the street (or, y’know, our inbox) is that Jonny is soon to release a video – so watch this space – and in the meantime, feast your ears on his latest tracks on Spotify below…
