Summers Sons - Still Nothing Still

Two brothers, surname Summers. London rap duo Summers Sons return with a new sound and vision. Still Nothing Still is a far cry from the beloved jazz rap the group is known for. The jazz influence is still there but sonically and lyrically Turt and Slim are playing in a class of their own.

Slim is adding a more electronic, trip-hoppy vibe to his beautifully executed beats. Turt delivers his raps with a new urgency and confidence. Having been diagnosed with epilepsy in 2021 had a major impact on his life and art. As a lyricist, Turt has always worn his heart on his sleeve but never so honestly, poetically, vulnerably, angrily, and sharp as on Still Nothing Still.

Since 2018 Summers Sons have released four albums (‘Undertones‘, ‘Uhuru‘, ‘The Rain‘, ‘Nostalgia‘) and a string of high profile collabos with artists like C.Tappin, Twit One, The Silhouettes Project and Koralle. Not forgetting Slim’s beat tape for KO-OP.

In 2023, Turt released the album ‘The Questions‘ as one third of the project Syrup (the other two are Twit One and C.Tappin) while Slim released an album project (‘Cerulean‘) with Benaddict and Ella Mae Suref. Turt also dropped two singles with the Silhouettes Project alongside Nix Northwest and Frankie Stew and Harvey Gunn.
