Old Tacoma Records and Young Heavy Souls presents Shapeshifter. An 11-track LP combining elements of hip-hop, jazz, and electronica from Chicago-based producer, Nunca Duerma presents: Shapeshifter will be released on Tuesday, July 22. The full-length album will be available for purchase on iTunes and on 12” vinyl records through the Young Heavy Souls store for a limited run.
Nunca Duerma was originally discovered by Eliot Lipp when the two appeared on concert bills together. Duerma’s first release on Old Tacoma was a 3-track EP, Dilated. After his debut, he produced a track that was featured on the Pretty Lights Music release of Eliot’s Shark Wolf Rabbit Snake remix album.
“Each track is carried by the depth of these beautiful melodies, and the raw soul that went in to creating them. The rhythms function in a way that gives every tone its own purpose. Nunca Duerma is musically one of the most thoughtful producers I’ve come across in recent years,” said Eliot Lipp.
There will be release shows in both Chicago and Detroit to celebrate. On July 18 at New Dodge in Detroit Nunca Duerma will play along with special guests Jaws That Bite, Pastel Arsenal and Heavy Color. In Chicago on July 25 at the Double Door, he will be accompanied with Vapor Eyes, Nortroniks, and Hongry Bogart.
