Quavius is a producer and rapper from the southern United States. Born in the late 80s with family in the military, he’s bounced between Virginia and Florida, soaking in regional gogo and baltimore club music along with rap, R&B, jazz and Drum n’ Bass. After some years experimenting with FL Studio, he’s amassed a diverse catalog of tunes, 8 of which are featured on his debut self-titled 12″ for Lustwerk Music.
Energetic deep house, two-stepping astral funk, crispy cloud raps and cascading roller- skate riffs occupy this allencompassing EP. Quavius manipulates samples like watercolors, letting bitrates blend and snap into euphoric moments of clarity. His rapping is that of a shapeshifter, making room in the mix any way he sees fit, high, low, melodic or not. And the lyrics? Catchy, lifeaffirming, fun. What more could you ask for?
