Confrontational Sounds

Lord Pusswhip is a 24 year old hip hop producer and rapper who has the questionable honour of being the king of the Icelandic underground hip hop scene. Known for his lush, psychedelic and confrontational sounds, inspired by chopped 'n' screwed, horror films and mysticism, Pusswhip has already produced for quite a few names in the underground rap world abroad such as Antwon, Metro Zu and Bones, as well as playing overseas with hip-hop and no wave legends Dälek, Goth Money Records & Stuart Argabright. Alongside those projects he makes Icelandic rap that mixes drugged-out VHS nostalgia with the sneer and explosiveness of punk rock. His debut mixtape LORD PUSSWHIP IS WACK received rave reviews and got nominated for album of the year in Iceland. 
This time around Pusswhip will be showcasing his DJ-ing and beat-making talents after having lived in Berlin for two years and having shared the stage with other interesting underground artists such as Pan Daijing, Darq. E Freaker, Tommy Cash and Show Me The Body. The new material is very influenced by the Berlin dance & techno scene so it will offer an exciting insight into what he's been up to musically for the last couple of years.
