Christoph Leon will wake you up through an “angsty experimental punk-infused science-fiction hip-hop” as he defines his music. Through its fictional alter-ego Wettworker, an artist name that carries very personal meanings, he embodies a deep metaphor and a critic about the current state of hip-hop music and its reflection into pop culture.
In his upcoming album The Legend of the Thugeater, experimentation goes hand in hand with his deep knowledge of a wide spectrum of music genres from punk to metal to reggae to dub to rap that mixed with his skills as producer generates different sounds sometimes groovy, sometimes dark and heavy.
From his early involvement with the punk band The Wrecktals and his provocative comedy-based hip-hop project Punkerslut, the road toward a deep music dark satire also passes through his mixed influences such as Childish Gambino, Clipping, Death Grips, to name few. Wettworker will eagerly bewitch you through his unique way of disclosing the hip-hop music genre stereotypes through their acted amplification into an experimental meta-rap.
From the very beginning, 'Are You Okay?' truly presents itself as a powerful piece, one of those able to showcase the innumerable music abilities of Wettworker, who is playing the producer’s crucial role. This new single literally arises from the oblivion of silence with a scratchy electric guitar, ready to hit you like a bullet. Indeed, behind this track there’s more: the voice and the lyrics of the one who once was an incredibly talented artist from Baltimore, Cubbiebear, who sadly passed prematurely away. However, through this song, the extreme power of his words is celebrated; the sharpness and the honesty of his thoughts are tributed also through a musical base that highlights such unique statements.
Toward the end, a synthesized music bridge, leaves the ground to a sort of cadenced march: one punctuated in the background by a screamed lament, a cried out sad hymn to the fragility of life.
