Madness, slavery, the rise of A.I., false gods, ancient Mesopotamia, catholic priests, the transmutation of matter and much more are all up for grabs in the debut album from Gawd Status, a collab between King Kashmere (Strange U) and Joker Starr.
The LP, Firmamentum, packs as much of an impact as you’d expect from these two skilled underground vets.
Here’s lead single Heavy Metal/The Alchemist featuring Fae Simon:
And the follow up featuring Jazz T, Messiah Hybrids.
The duo became friends after meeting at Kashmere’s Raiders Of The Lost Archives album launch party over a decade ago.
As half of Strange U, Kash is a legendary MC and producer who’s released on Eglo Records and High Focus, while Joker Starr is a prolific solo artist – as well as touring with Micall Parknsun recently to front the Abstract Orchestra, this year has also seen him put out the G.A.W.D. album.
