The single produced by DJ JD Sports aka King Krule is out now
South London artist and Rhythm Section affiliate Pinty returns with a late night slice of ‘c’est la vie’ on ‘It’s Just Life’ produced by DJ JD Sports aka King Krule. With an accompanying video shot in his mum’s kitchen, the film is an ‘ode to his youth’, including snippets of smoky chess games and dusky rooftop soliloquies.
This is the first single taken from the forthcoming ‘Midnight Moods’ mixtape which is a culmination of 6 tracks and a ‘lullaby’ recorded over several sprawling nocturnal sessions and features a revolving cast of late night characters that includes Jadasea and Maxwell Owin. The woozy and loose takes were eventually mixed down and mistakenly bounced in mono as the sun came up in the room at 7am, then lovingly mixed in stereo during daylight hours some weeks later.
Pinty’s witty wordplay and effervescent club sound take influence from the introspective poetry of The Streets and the jazz tinged house tones of Peckham’s vibrant night scene. The lyricist released his debut EP on Rhythm Section International in 2019 to much acclaim, making waves with his distinctly individual live performances, appearances on Boiler Room and Just Jam, radio residencies on Reprezent and Balamii, and the front cover of the Peckham Peculiar.
His upcoming tour dates include Annie Mac Presents (London), SXSW (Austin), Queens Yard (London) and Gala Festival (London).
‘It’s Just Life’ will be released on 3rd March with the full ‘Midnight Moods’ mixtape out on the 24th April via new label Winged Feet from Pinty and Alexander Waldron, co-founder of Greco Roman.
