"The Devil Defeated" is the new album from Darko The Super, entirely produced by Steel Tipped Dove. Titled after a lyric from "Spirit World Rising" by the late great Daniel Johnston. This album plays out as a bugged out coming of age journey all about finding yourself and defeating the devils of the past. The devil represents fear and paranoia. Daniel Johnston is our hero's spiritual guide. He represents light and love. A true force of inspiration. Track's like "Suzy" show the dark side, selfishness and anger. It's a story based on "Suzy's Face" a song by punk legends and Kalamazoo heroes, The Spits. While songs like "Butterflies in My Tummy" represent young love. It even details having to go to the hospital and getting stitches as a child. "The Devil Defeated" is very much a statement. Darko The Super has found his voice and in turn himself.
Darko The Super is the doofus in charge over at U Don’t Deserve This Beautiful Art, a record label specializing in the unexpected. Darko has spent his illustrious career as a hip hop superhero. Hailing from the city of brotherly love, he formed such duos as The Hell Hole Store with ialive, and Desperate Band Appreciation Society with Harvey Cliff MC. Through the years he’s worked with some of independent music’s brightest stars and even is known to hang out at fashion week in his outfits from Big & Tall. With an increasingly rising 50 some odd albums under his belt, he is truly a bonafide prolific rap weirdo. Heralded as Philly’s avant-garde king, Darko The Super is an unstoppable force making other artists of today look plain lazy.
