Listen | Gee D’Art – Under Pressure

Gee D’Art, real name Given Mukwevho, released his debut EP Under Pressure yesterday (19 September). The 12 track project was released through AliveSeries Music/Thawtcast Media and features the likes of L.Moose, Makheda and King Lutendo a.k.a Elphonic. He came up with the concept in September 2015 and exactly a year later, we have Under Pressure.

“Under Pressure is really all about me capturing a moment or phase I was in last year. I felt like people weren’t really appreciating the sound or hustle so basically it’s more about me showing people how frustrated I am. I used really dark sounds on the project to put that across but at the same time the aim was to create beauty.”

Something that’s also a work of beauty is the project’s artwork which was created by Kay Tladi from AliveSeries/Thawtart Media. “I’m drowning in Purple Reign ‘Codine’. I am a lean addict and each time I was feeling angry/frustrated I would drink that to calm me down. Lean is also part of my creative process of making music like, I want my music to have the same feeling lean has on me which is relaxed and at the same time giving people a good feeling. That’s why I have that nice tag on my beats: ‘Stop leanin’,” said Gee D’Art about the artwork.

You can listen to the EP on Soundcloud or download it here for free.
