A fresh new voice forged of Stankonian funk and Neptunes futurism

Today, Duckwrth has released his latest project, an XTRA UUGLY Mixtape, an eclectic collection of far-reaching sounds and infectious suites.

And though he’s been embraced by left-leaning eccentrics like Georgia Ann Muldrow and Hodgy, the new tape is entirely its own beast; an escalation of his experiments in steel-toed dance music and glimmering minimalism a la The Neptunes and N.E.R.D.; two Pharrell incarnations for which the limber vocalist is openly reverent and holds dear to his palette overarching influence as an artist, according to recent chat.

The South Central native is of skater roots and mentality; defiantly unique, fiercely independent and anxious for the opportunity to win over the hearts of heads. He lays out a personal ethos and mission statement in this week’s First Look Friday profile.
