Swordplay & Pierre the Motionless – Tap water
(US / FR) Vinyl album – Limited 300 ex.
June 20th 2013
Swordplay and Pierre the Motionless met on an infamous online musician dating site in its heyday circa 2007. Recognizing an inherent compatibility in both sound and language, the bilingual duo began to craft tracks together, beginning with the remix of 64 Bit from Swordplay’s 2005 Tilt EP and a melodious ode to the relentless lifestyle of touring DIY artists entitled No Sleep. These would be the first two songs written for what has evolved into a long-lasting friendship and collaborative project which is due to materialize in 2013 as the full-length Swordplay & Pierre the Motionless album ‘Tap Water’.
The music of Swordplay & Pierre the Motionless combines aggressive vocal deliveries with the somber architecture of a beat-maker flirting between jazz and folk. Still living under the umbrella of underground hip-hop, this unique creature bends genres, crosses borders and takes no prisoners.
