With 5 years since his last solo as LP, George Clanton is back with his new highly anticipated statement album “Ooh Rap I Ya.”
Truly a multidisciplinary artist revered for his DIY approach to everything - including managing his own record label (100% Electronica), and curating multiple music festivals - George is best known for his contributions to underground music.
For over a decade George has spearheaded multiple creative shifts in so called “Internet music,” including compositional vaporwave, and the more recent “Baggy Revival” phenomenon.
After releasing several full length albums already considered essential listening to multiple independent subcultures, George had his first brush with mainstream indie acceptance with 2018’s “Slide” album.
Newfound indie success placed him on the radar of a childhood hero, Nick Hexum, singer for the rock band 311. The resulting full length collaborative album defied expectation, blending disparate styles into something truly one of a kind - beautiful and authentic to both of the artists’s signature styles.
When the global pandemic halted live events indefinitely, George utilized the time to write and rewrite a distillation of all of his musical output in the form of a new LP. “Ooh Rap I Ya” arrives July 28 2023 and will preface the most extensive touring of his career.
As a genre-hopping DIY artist, George Clanton has never been the next big thing - never the subject of a Tik Tok trend, or the center of any cultural moment. George Clanton exists inside of a world of his own creation, and with a large and ever growing international cult following, his decade spanning influence is not to be overlooked.
