Little Eskimo Jesus (Ira Lee & Mattr) – Never Trust The People

Little Eskimo Jesus - Never Trust The People

Ira Lee and Mattr’s new project, Little Eskimo Jesus, is now available on Milled Pavement Records.

The Brainchild of Swiss – German producer / rapper/ vocalist Mattr (Berne, Swizz) and Montreal based experimental artist ira lee (Montreal, Qc) Little Eskimo Jesus was pioneered through emotional necessity as a psychological outlet for our heroes to indulge in and sponsor their most extreme, indulgent, bizarre, and emotional folk / electro / down tempo / rap experimental collaborations. Weaving seamlessly from electro dance to down tempo trip hop, the astounding diversity of both the production and songwriting is an homage to the vivacity and relevance of contemporary experimental folk rap. Steeped in thick, syrupy synths, crunchy drums, and hypnotic melodies courtesy of Mattr, and bathed in a naive, almost childlike songwriting by ira lee, Little Eskimo Jesus ‘Never Trust the People’ is a magnificent introduction to Mattr and ira lee, and undoubtedly one of the most sincere records of 2010.
