Zambian-born South African rapper, PatrickxxLee was one of the new-wave acts, we put on our NativeLand stage last year. His production work on Cassper Nyovest’s Refilo album and the release of his Disco Utopia EP, a critic’s favourite last year made him one of the frontier artists on our soon-to-pop watchlist.
For “Phonerotica”, PatrickxxLee taps fellow underground act, J.Molley for a synth-heavy number about an attraction only sustained by sentimental photo captions and naked pictures. The title “Phonerotica” is directly inspired by a popular porn website and forum of the same name, as a loose critique of the self-publishing social media age where words say one thing and pictures say another.
