bad apple commnue // omega collective // sagan theory
rhythms from realms out of reach.
One of Pennsylvania’s most unique underground artists, the rapper/singer/lyricist/multi-genre producer/visual artist shows a penchant for creating musical projects that take listeners on wild experimental journeys. DePaul uses his eclectic tastes in music and a wide range of influences to fuse a central hip hop sound with electronic beats, melodic vocal stylings, and Afrofuturistic sci-fi themes. Utilizing this quixotic instrumentation and bringing a distinct vibe to hip hop and electronic music has become one of DePaul’s edicts and sets him apart from other emcees in the Philly independent scene.
