Image: 1605096 Alpha Pup Records is ecstatic to announce the signing of Crem’e to
the family roster, scheduled to drop his debut full-length, Close Up, this
fall. Hitting both vinyl and digital formats upon release, Close Up is a
highly personalized vehicle of sound, created over the last few years as
a response to the passing of his mother. An expression of deep roots
and a chain of connections that shattered and spliced into millions of
parts, Close Up was designed as a means of self-healing and emotional
preservation. Crem’e summed up this transition in his life with the
following, “It’s like getting rid of a scar and then feeling naked without it.”
The musical language of Close Up jumps back and forth between a
soulful balance of beauty and pain. Channeling the state of influences
his family, friends and environments have afforded him growing up in LA.
Many organic elements are seamlessly melded together, brought together
through heavy usages of sampling, vocal layering and live recordings.
Crem’e further added, “Hip Hop has always been my foundation so it
was pretty seamless to create with samples even if it isn’t on the rap tip.”
His connection to the community of Los Angeles reflects his foundations
in both hip hop and electronica, taking an internship program with the
acclaimed Stones Throw Records and becoming an integral member of
the staff at Hi Fidelity Records. He’s constantly immersed in the music
community he supported for so many years prior, living the life of a
dedicated and passionate musician with everyday’s passing.
Close Up represents bright moments that glide through mental gardens
of sonic delight, molded into unique form in every measure, note and
texture. Simply put, Close Up is music that represents the very essence of
human connection and particularly the relationships Crem’e fostered over
the last two decades. It’s a closer examination of how we transition and
embody the themes of our tragedies and triumphs. Walking in the same
footsteps as the talented producers who have generated the communities
sprawling life through electronica and LA, Crem’e is a producer that
strives to achieve beauty in every detail with his music. This detail was
amplified with the mixing and mastering work of Alpha Pup label head
and Low End co-founder Daddy Kev at Cosmic Zoo.
