Substantia Nigra is a deep dive, accompanied by exclusive previously unreleased material, into the imaginary and experimental construction of the instrumental album The Substance by Junkaz Lou. The accompanying visual art is a unique collaboration between the artist and his artistic alter ego, Junky, with contributions from Hek.
The visual dimension of Substantia Nigra is as essential as its musical component. Junky and Hek (TJS) have infused their artistic vision into each track, both in its conception and writing, creating an immersive experience that transcends mere sounds and words, breaking the boundaries of conventional perception.
The foreword to the book is written by hip-hop lecturer Somy. His insightful perspective on Junkaz Lou's musical and artistic universe enriches the book, revealing unique angles of influence within urban culture.
