Elysia Crampton announces Demon City with Chino Amobi, Why Be, Rabit, and Lexxi

There’s no hiding our love for Elysia Crampton. From Bound Adam and her mixes to The Light That You Gave Me To See You and last year’s American Drift (#6 on our year-end list), Crampton’s music as both E+E and under her given name has been enrapturing us for years. So we are especially excited to announce that Elysia Crampton is releasing a new album, titled Elysia Crampton Presents: Demon City.

Demon City features contributions from Chino Amobi, Why Be, Rabit, and Lexxi, and is out on July 22. It’s described by Break World as “a narrative album that works as an epic poem, existing as an official document of the Severo style.” As Crampton puts it: “The Severo style is an ongoing process, a becoming-with or being-with made possible by the family-networks and communities that have inspired and sustained our survival and collective search for transformative justice.”

Check out “Dummy Track” (ft. Why Be and Chino Amobi) below, and pre-order Demon City via Break World. It’s the first album of reportedly two coming from the label.
