Not the next Beck, not the next Prince, not the next Zappa, Capital boldly goes where we're all waiting for someone to go...
Paving the way for melodic songwriting in electronic music, Capital draws on blues, funk, jazz, rock, and the traditions of Latin America, Asia and Africa to invent edgy, addictive rhythms and rhymes that shoot off into a new world entirely.
"Rain or Shine" is a duo collaboration with Japan's legendary turntable guru DJ Nozawa, showcasing the DJ's mind twisting beats topped by intense, virtuosic songs written and performed by Capital. Complex, soulful and positive, this work sharpens the cutting edge that Capital and DJ Nozawa have created in their many recordings with Shing02 and the Terracotta Troupe Interground.
