P. Morris, born Philesciono Canty, is a Los Angeles-based producer, performer and DJ. Resident Advisor has lauded him for fastening the“holographic allure of Southern rap beats…to a distinctly American hip-hop template”. He has produced tracks for Kelela & LE1F, including the recent collaboration “OICU” (2014), as well as Feist, been released on Night Slugs and Fade To Mind, and completed a North American tour with FKA twigs. His first mixtape, Debut (2014), was released on his own label, Bear Club Music Group (BCMG), leading the way for his Beloved & Daydream EPs & mixtape series POP. MORRIS.
P. Morris is the modern flaneur, he who possesses the unseen eye, an artist who’s work is both familiar yet nearly unfathomable. At once both modern yet reverent of the past, the work of P. Morris speaks to both the politics of body and the hidden depths of the soul. His music is of many different viewpoints: harsh as an industrial complex, gentle like a lover’s whispering in the dead of night, forward looking yet informed by long held promises.
