New York City hardcore trio Show Me The Body have a mixtape on the way featuring all of their friends. Coming March 24th via their own Corpus label the Corpus 1 mixtape features Denzel Curry, Cities Aviv, Moor Mother, Eartheater, Dreamcrusher, Nolife, Princess Nokia, Mal Devisa and more (full tracklisting below). Away from New York for much of last year touring the US and abroad, the band returned to their hometown to find things had changed; DIY venues and punk houses had been raided by police, promoters and owners who previously fought for the scene fought for their own legal security and money.
To combat, the band held a residency of 5 shows around the 5 boroughs, showcasing friends and sharing spaces with artists they respect. Around the same time they were given the opportunity to record for two months for free in a studio in Lower Manhattan. During those two months they extended the opportunity to their community. They collaborated with artists they revere and produced tracks for younger musicians coming up. What emerged was a document of sound and visuals that represent the scene that Show Me The Body has cultivated and built since they were teenagers. The result is the Corpus 1 mixtape.
