Announced: John Glacier – Duppy Gun

John Glacier announces her second project of the year, Duppy Gun, with a brand new Kwes Darko-produced single, ‘Steady As I Am’.
The opener on Duppy Gun, ‘Steady As I Am’ feels like an autobiographical amble from Glacier’s inner psyche. A subtle, yet authoritative affirmation of who she is, the track is the epitome of letting her output do the talking. Set to a hypnotic, looping melody, Glacier’s trademark deadpan flow takes on new rhythmic importance over a skipping, skittering percussive line.
After a release as diverse as Like A Ribbon, John Glacier’s Duppy Gun follows in the same free-form, experimental spirit of its predecessor. Its skeleton is built upon rap, but uncovering all its layers is a richly eclectic experience. Shades of dancehall, electronic music, ambience and so much more echo throughout the project’s five tracks, providing a unique atmosphere that feels just about as personal and diaristic as we’ve heard from Glacier so far. Released on 20th June, Duppy Gun is just another chapter in that diary from John Glacier; one of the UK’s most beguiling musical talents, crafting new worlds to invite the listener into.
