King Krule Drops Rap EP as “Edgar the Beatmaker”

Singer-songwriter King Krule has been on an experimental mission since we were first introduced to the 18-year-old guitar prodigy through his critically acclaimed single “Out Getting Ribs.” His complex guitar riffs, distinct baritone vocals, and gift for song arrangement are a testament to the younger generation’s potential for musical innovation.

Originally known as “Zoo Kid,” the artist born Archy Marshall later changed his stagename to King Krule (after “King K. Rool” in the video game “Donkey Kong Country”), and now has introduced yet another alias–“Edgar the Beatmaker.”

Through his time spinning wax for Rinse FM and his close relationships with NYC progressive hip-hop group Ratking and Irish emcee Rejje Snow, we see that this young songwriter doesn’t just dwell in the realm of indie rock but is also well versed in the world of Hip Hop . . . just go check out the mix him and Ratking created for Rinse–its full of gems.

This Edgar the Beatmaker project is based on King Krule’s apparent love for boom bap. The three-track Baby London EP, completely created by Krule, is full of experimental dusty instrumentals, slurred rhymes spit with a British accent, and low-fi vocal samples including recorded phone conversations. This is interesting, innovative, and refreshing. Give it a listen.
