Blakkheart is a multi-genre music producer from Cork who “draws inspiration from neon graphic novels and Noir movies.”
According to the beatmaker and instrumentalist she treats her musical projects like movies or comics.
“All are set to a story (a murder mystery, a gothic fairytale), featuring characters through which the beat is told, the narrative shifting between characters, these changes reflected in the music.”
Just before her support slot for Craic Boi Mental back in April she released ‘One Hot Afternoon in Texas’, incorporating elements of 90s R&B, with “Southern-infused hip hop” tinges. Now she’s back with a new one, this time influenced by “the dreamy hazy Florida swamp heat”, and featuring old school cinematic strings and vocal samples.
There should be a line of MCs beginning to queue around the corner from her studio any day now. Check out ‘Crush’ below.
