R 60 R 0

“The First Toke” EP originally released in 2008, signalled Arsenic’s break out on his own, carving a unique identity with his chilled out, headnod constructions, perfect for all you blunted heads and beat freaks. Although he’s known for hip-hop beats, his “joints” have a distinctive jazzy feel, his sound is unique and commandingly his own. In the past he has worked with Fungus aka Sammy Sparxx, Eavesdrop, Ben Sharpa, The Hymphatic Thabs and Garlic Brown to name but a few.

This release, “The First Toke” is an EP-length project containing a few instrumentals as well as collaborations with MCs and DJs. Dont get it twisted though, the title refers more to the feel and tempo of the album.
The EP was entirely produced and visualized by the one man army, recording/mix engineer, and beat creator, Arsenic (aka The Jazzy Mongrel). “The First Toke” features some of Cape Town’s illest emerging talent; The Archetypes, Fungus , Endz The Otherness, Eavesdrop, Jitsvinger, and Big Dre contributing cuts and scratches!
