Opener ‘She Put a Spell on Me’ is pheromone omen to the rules of attraction viz the schools of distraction. Love is a three-ring circus and the Harlem Barnum, Dark, is the ceremonial master. Or is he?
Dark’s expansive artistry encompasses politically charged hip-hop, buttery R&B, grimy rock, street savvy poetry, literature, non-dogmatic spirituality, and singer-songwriter style emotional intimacy. Previously described as “Michael Jackson’s band meets Inspectah Deck of WuTang meets the energy from Queens that made the Ramona’s play fast”, Timothy Dark’s music is rich, diverse and unpredictable.
Some of the coolest music out there comes as a result of blending not only genres, but also by combining the best on offer from different periods of music.
