Olin Caprison (AKA Palmtrees Caprisun) is a performance artist, composer, musician and producer who first made a splash on on Total Freedom's Blasting Voice compilation back in 2012, following a few releases on smaller netlabels. Last year, Caprison helped kick off Mykki Blanco's Dogfood Music Group label as a key part of the C-ORE compilation. A Ruse Of Power is their first solo album proper, and it sees Caprison moving to NON, a pan-continental collective of artists from the African diaspora led by Chino Amobi.
"There's an established narrative and narratives that live on the outskirts, inhabiting the shadows of monuments all over the world," says Caprison. "I try to move through these various narratives, various truths and bring some syncretism, and light, to the hidden places whilst simultaneously working my own personal narrative into the mix."
