Atlanta-based rapper/producer/multi-instrumentalist JACK PRESTON exudes the inventive ethos of hip-hop’s alternate world. The voices and sounds of music’s past outsiders such as Outkast, George Clinton, and Prince, among many others, are potent imprints in Preston’s music. Equally inspired and informed by Dilla, Herbie Hancock, David Bowie, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dali, Preston’s work carries a thread of awareness of the commonality between worlds, and propels us forward into the new and unknown.
Preston’s delivery is rooted in southern dialect, wrapped in a bed of time-warped soundscapes and textures. Live, Preston translates his studio renderings into a mind bending, electrifying experience like none other.
