Montreal-based abstract rapper and producer, cropscropscrops, breaks the mold. With a unique blend of narrative-driven lyricism and experimental production, he’s been steadily building a name and then refining it with every release. After self-producing his debut project, “What Can Live In This Room?” in 2022, he’s shifted to collaborating with boundary-pushing producers to craft projects that transport listeners into a new world each time. His 2023 EP, “w/ a window,” is a jazzy, lo-fi, 4 tracks reminiscent of a bustling 2010s independent art-rap scene. “from here, out there,” his new 2024 collab album with NY producer Vaygrnt, is a conceptual travel-journal that expands on the immersive lo-fi ambience of past work while turning the poetic verses up another notch.

Hailing from NY outskirts, experimental hip-hop producer Vaygrnt has been cultivating a devoted following and music community while consistently building a one-of-a-kind catalogue. His production, often genre-bending, crafts immersive environments where listeners vividly picture their surroundings. With drums teetering on the brink, samples bent and mangled to his will, and ideas that crescendo over a track’s runtime, Vaygrnt’s music transcends conventions, offering a journey into the uncharted territories of experimental lo-fi.
