christian tiger school – ‘carlton banks’ & ‘gravy crew’ (listen)

Christian Tiger School, formed in 2011, are a psychedelic/dream hip-hop duo from Cape Town, South Africa, comprising of Luc Veermeer and Sebastian Zanasi.

Both being A.D.D sufferers, their music wriggles around going from heavily filtered psychedelic synths to airy and playful melodies.

Carlton Banks is my absolute favourite track from the duo. Chilled out and filled with funk. Can’t wait to catch the boys live tonight at Boogie Boutique presented by Writer’s Bench.

“Gravy Crew” is their freshest offering:

Cape Town creative talent at it’s rawest.
