OLD SELF is an aging millennial (excuse me Willennial) rap man. As a lyricist, performance artist, and cofounder of internationally renowned DIY venue Crunch House, OLD SELF has established himself as a pillar of the independent rap community and has become a staple of the New Haven and NYC rap scenes. Through occasional touring and local supporting roles OLD SELF has proven he isn’t afraid to have a pizza delivered to the stage. He has shared bills with notable acts such as Homeboy Sandman, Open Mike Eagle, and Quelle Chris, just to name a few.
After years of anticipation, OLD SELF finally gives us his debut album, Word Art Gallery, an engaging excursion in late-stage capitalism rap. This album is a suburban junk culture masterpiece located at the corner of nostalgia sickness and meaningless materialism, somewhere along the path of the forever-adolescent search for happiness. OLD SELF welcomes you to the Word Art Gallery via we are the karma kids, available now on CD, cassette, digital download, and all major streaming services.

With a strong sense of rhythm and audible love of the written word, he has made a name for himself with music of varying intensity and dynamic. Over the course of 14 releases, Sketch has danced through multiple genres (experimental hip-hop, funk, art rock, electronic, dub reggae, etc.) while MCing, producing, and playing objects as random as pots and pans as instruments. His name has grown through energetic and dynamic live shows solo, with a DJ, or with his 10 piece band The Furor Poeticus; performing in venues nationwide and earning praise at home (twice being named Best Hip-Hop Act locally and nominated statewide http://ct.com).
In the next year, Sketch tha cataclysm is set to hit the road on multiple tours including a first time European run. Projects to be completed in the next twelve months consist of a book of poetry (Swimming Cursive To The Hilt Of Bliss), the production of a one-act play (3 Sides Of Neglect), and his 15th audio release and 3rd full length hip-hop album entitled MAYA."
