You have to love this guy. This is really fresh, not too serious and totally artistically unique, somewhere between Rap, Soul, Funk, 80s Electro, DIY and Punk attitude. He is signed to STONES THROW, the hippest and maddest HipHop label on earth (J-Dilla, Madlib, Peanut Butter Wolf...).
JAMES PANTS is from Spokane near Washington. He started playing drums and marching in bands. Then he bought cheap turntables and learned to scratch with Steppenwolf records. James Pants' turntables skipped so much that he lost many battles and was never a good DJ. Then James Pants started playing Showbiz and AG, but no one liked his rap, and he was never paid. Then James Pants started playing Cameo and his drums again and people danced a little. Now James Pants plays his new album "WELCOME" and a few girls like it. "Mystical and enchanting," is what people in Spokane say about it. Teenagers at the park like to dance and make-out to the new James Pants sound. "What a kaleidoscope," said one lady with her dog. "I can feel the universe pulse."
You should check this out. And i can truely recommend his complete album "Welcome", which is full of little surprises, instrumental sketches, soulfull songs etc...
