Ninja Kidsoul & agajon – “Gap Shit” music video
‘Gap Shit’ is a track that celebrates the power of now and the power of cutting the chains of past worry. Ninja Kidsoul’s vocals shine throughout as he effortlessly dashes between rap verses and his trademark soulful falsettos. Lyrically, the song represents a personal reflection on committing to the present moment.
‘Gap Shit’ splices vocal samples with playful horns, tight bass, and an old-school hip-hop beat. Masterfully produced with vintage warmth by agajon, the track is a perfect vehicle for Ninja Kidsoul’s impressive vocal range, versatile flow, peerless rhymes, and ear for a hooky chorus. “Gap Shit” is also a pure example of how the pair, based in Germany, dovetail so well together musically. agajon delivers an unconventional J Dilla meets Madlib-inspired beat, as Ninja Kidsoul’s vocal performance smoothly slips from rap into singing and back.
“At its core, Gap Shit is about letting the ghosts of the past stay there while also not summoning future ones ahead of their time. ‘Gap Shit’ is the approach to music from a place of complete freedom. Its base being the sonic bond that deepens the trust in each other to create what’s true to our essence.” – Ninja Kidsoul explained
Ninja Kidsoul was born in south Germany’s Schweinfurt to a US-American father and a German mother. It’s this dual heritage that sets his music apart from so many of his contemporaries. His progressive leaning and global-looking music have turned heads off the back of his COLORS session and performance at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 2022. Being many things at the same time – while hard to put in a box, Ninja Kidsoul above all is a free jazz spirit embodying all that music has to offer.
