South African Artist Stuck Abroad writes EP ‘ Jumped On A Plane and Wrote This EP 2’ inspired by his travels in Ireland.
After completing his Irish master’s in sustainable energy, Skill (@SkillMusicSA), returned to Cork, Ireland and crafted his forthcoming EP, Jumped On A Plane and Wrote This EP 2, which will be available on the 13th August.
Partially funded by the SAMRO Music Foundation, the project #JOAPAWTEP2 is a hip-hop project that combines elements of travel excitement, a deep love for chicken and a touch of South Africa.
Sonically diverse, the project starts with a bass-driven, Xhosa-rapped, Kwaito-inspired work, “UseDublin” and ends with an alternative hip hop inspired track, “Not Coming Home”. Not Coming Home is the first single to hit local radio stations before its digital release coming 13 August.
Skill had this to say about the project: “People know I love to travel, chicken and chicken. This project pays homage to my Eastern Cape, South African roots while also updating people on my travels… and love for chicken.”
Fully produced by Skill himself, Skill showcases his creativity with intricate piano trickle ever-present in the project. With #JOAPAWTEP2 on the horizon, Skill looks set to entertain audiences locally and in Ireland for the rest of 2021.
