T.Shirt & Darvin Silva Debut EP Together, "Tan-Face Children".
"Tan-Face Children", the debut EP by T.Shirt & Darvin Silva will be released world-wide on Tuesday March 9th, 2010 available free of charge, through www.illrapper.com and www.darvinsilva.com - presented by the Connoisseurs Of Culture.
Over the last two months [Retro Electro] DJ/Producer Darvin Silva, and New York City rapper T.Shirt have been working on their full and realized debut EP together, "Tan-Face Children". The name derives from the opening line of the famous Walt Whitman poem "Pioneers! O Pioneers!" where the poet beckons the burning youth "Come my tan-face children". He's speaking of the Western world, the youth of a generation working in the sun for long hours thus becoming, "tan-faced". It's a poetic and just way to describe the hard-working famous kids from Queens.
The chemistry in the music is electrifying. While only scratching the surface of their combined sound in the last 8 years, the close friends have put out "about 5, or 6 records", both on original production, and unsanctioned, worldly remixes. Darvin's penchant for finding the "dirty, rap shit" in say, a mid-tempo french house song is as strong as can be. It is said that where T.Shirt thrives is where he's allowed to be different, finding new flows, and concepts. That's exactly the type of platform working with a talent like Darvin Silva brings. Where else can you find a gifted and gritty New York rapper spitting verses on one of the hardest beats you ever heard, by France's own Mr. Oizo. It's never been done.
"Tan-Face Children", the debut EP by T.Shirt & Darvin Silva will be released world-wide on Tuesday March 9th, 2010. The project, is presented for the first time in conjunction with the Connoisseurs Of Culture, a progressive media collective comprised of TheCouchSessions.com, Different Kitchen (DifferentKitchen.blogspot.com)
Digital-only copies of "Tan-Face Children" will be available free of charge, through www.illrapper.com and www.darvinsilva.com
Peace to the Saints
