“And The Nothing From Which Nothing Comes” Release Show May 26th

Rob Crooks is a musician, songwriter and performance artist based in Winnipeg, Canada. With a masters degree in Philosophy and an ear for heavy rhythm and relaxed melodies, Crooks’ newest album, And The Nothing From Which Nothing Comes, is a collection of uncommon, highly listenable songs. Known primarily as a hip hop producer and collaborator (Pip Skid, Ismaila Alfa, John Smith, etc) Crooks has a reputation for taking risks with sound and pushing technological limits in performance. His music is not easily categorized but it is absolutely easy to listen to.

The Nothing From Which Nothing Comes, available on cassette and in digital format, is a shared release between Canada’s Disintegration Records and Belgium’s Marathon of Dope.

“Crooks has a one-of-a-kind ability to combine hip-hop and electronic styles in a way that elevates both the aesthetic energy and uniqueness of his music, as well as the socially informed narrative within his storytelling. He is easily one of the most original and interesting artists in Manitoba”
Ted Turner: CKUW, Stylus, DJ Nocontact

Poppycock Album Now Up Exclusively at the Tallest Poppy in Winnipeg

This past summer, Pip Skid and I participated in an artist residency put on by Synonym Art Consultation at The Tallest Poppy in Winnipeg. We spent a whole weekend in one of the booths at the diner making beats, writing lyrics and recording songs while dining customers stared at us in bewilderment. We had a few friends stop by to help us out, and the result is the Poppycock mixtape. The mixtape features guest artists Birdapres, Greg MacPherson, Charlie Fettah, Nestor Wynrush, Watg Steve of 3peat and Mic Holden. Currently the only place in the universe to hear it is at the Tallest Poppy. It is on constant loop, playing out of a jukebox that was crafted by Pip Skid himself (pictured below). If you happen to be in Winnipeg, head down and grab a spot close to the earphones!
