A singer, songwriter, rapper and producer living in the heart of Berlin’s new musical revolution, Ghost, I has recently revealed a dark manifesto for his art and vision.
As an artist, Ghost, I has developed a sound that is honest, emotional and wonderfully melancholic. His style has flowed and evolved throughout each theatrical performance, creating a dreamy fairy-tale universe where time dissolves and everything is reduced to pure sound. His DIY approach to art and music is punk fed on hip hop, gospel music, and literature, which his references come from1960’s pop songs, post punk via his parents’ love of the genre, and modern avant-garde artists such as Yung Lean and Kanye West.
His latest emotive anthem, ‘Japanese Black Ink’ is a song and video meant to set the tone and define the universe of Ghost, I. It is not forced into a pop format or length, but stays true to the very first improvisation upon which it is based. Stream it above.
Today in Berlin he is working on developing his collective project NO START NO END, making music videos, planning performances, and preparing his debut album to be released this year
