If you’re into good solid rap, you are going to enjoy this a lot: critics regularly describe Yugen Blakrok as the “South African hip-hop revelation of the moment“.
Gaining recognition through various features and live shows, Yugen has been on the SA scene for over a decade already.
Since her first acclaimed mixtape in 2013, Return of the Astro-Goth, she has skillfully led her career. Her deep occult flow was revealed to the general public after her appearance on the soundtrack of the film Black Panther in 2018, alongside Kendrick Lamar and Vince Staples.
After playing all over Europe for 5 years, Yugen released her second album in 2019, Anima Mysterium. The piece is described as a dark universe that sows the frontiers of a world where the subconscious frees itself and confronts man with his most hidden secrets.
Her duo with producer Kanif The Jhatmaster runs on pure energy. Influenced by the political/militant and spiritual aspects of Hip-Hop, her music is firmly rooted in the mind-set of the 90’s, a deep lyrical and audio odyssey into the world around us, both seen and unseen.
