Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 23, 2014 by E.N.

Lazy Habits are releasing a new album of exclusive remixes, featuring the remixes from the likes of Benji Boko, The Correspondents and The Disablists.London hip-hop outfit Lazy Habits are releasing a new album of exclusive remixes, featuring the remixes from the likes of Benji Boko, The Correspondents and The Disablists via Run ‘N’ Jump Records this February.

The ‘Lazy Habits’ remix album works as an evolution of their debut (which was the perfect emulation of the band’s epic live credentials and their trademark big band and hip-hop sound). The new album sees a host of exciting remixing talents put their own spin on Lazy Habits’ original tracks, creating an album which sounds refreshingly unique, while maintaining the infectious spirit of the group’s first record.

The album contains remixes from renowned artists such as Fjokra, a multi – instrumentalist from Dublin, whose music drew the attention of Kaiser Chiefs, leading them to collaborate on an album called ‘Emerging Icons’ which was released via Unsigned Band Review. Also credited is popular artist Benny Aves who has received strong radio support from Annie Mac, B–Traits, Nick Grimshaw, Shadow Child and Caspa. Renowned UK outfit The Correspondents bring their individual electro-swing style to ‘Memory Banks’, building upon Lazy Habits’ original, infectious hip-hop rhythms.

Grey Reverend —Everlasting

Grey Reverend —everlasting

Grey Reverend —Everlasting

MODNL008

Released 29/07/2013

Grey Reverend, AKA Brooklyn’s LD Brown, is a modern day bluesman. That alone should make him notable, the music world being in danger of losing one of its greatest, most expressive genres to a lack of emerging talent. Grey Reverend is notable full stop however – his raw, simple, beautiful music is utterly, heartstoppingly arresting.

Everlasting is his first single since The Cinematic Orchestra’s Motion Audio imprint released his debut album in 2010, and comes fresh off the back of his vaunted collaboration with BonoboFirst Fires. This extended player, which features four new songs, announces his forthcoming sophomore album for Motion. LD produced the songs himself, playing percussive elements, keys and a homemade melotron as well as his signature rhythmic, raw guitar

The title song’s teasing, nostalgic melody winds through LD’s vocal observations and musings to startling effect. He immersed himself in experimental guitar luminaries from the Velvet Underground to Labi Siffre whilst writing and recording, and those influences emerge in the form of Grey Reverend‘s ability to hypnotise the ear.

Lazy Habits ‘Bulletin’ [Run 'N' Jump Records] – Released 19th November

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 1, 2012 by E.N.

DIGITAL 29th October
PHYSICAL 19th November

8 piece London Hip-Hop collective, Lazy Habits, release their first single ‘Bulletin’ out on Run ‘n’ Jump Records this November. This lead track is taken from their forthcoming eponymous album due out towards the beginning of December.

Like its name sake, ‘Bulletin’ grabs your attention from the start with frenetic brass and up-beat drums accompanying MC Lazy’s vocals taking centre stage. The song builds to panoramic proportions with cinematic strings working through the gaps lifting the live hip-hop beat. Rolling through, understated, beneath the boisterous exterior, an emotive Rhodes-Bass line loops through with its subtle stealth drawing you in deeper into the music.

Influenced by New Orleans jazz, soul and the Big Bands of the 50’s, Lazy Habits blast their sound into the 21st Century with hard hitting beats and slick lyrics about modern British culture and urban life. The band describes their sound as:

“Beats, Rhymes and Brass of the highest caliber.”

Formed in 2007 and originally the brainchild of one MC, the Hackney based outfit now stand as a full eight piece band whose onstage energy is a colossal live experience which has been sincerely replicated in their latest single.

Having notched up shows at legendary venues such as Shepherd’s Bush Empire, The Roundhouse, KOKO; supporting the likes of Mos Def, Soulwax, The Specials, Bonobo, Chali 2Na (Jurrasic5) and Beardyman, Lazy Habits have proven their worth on stage. Alongside Lazy Habits’ memorable live performances at Glastonbury, Bestival, Secret Garden Party and Electric Picnic the band are fast becoming a formidable and renowned international live act.

Lazy Habits’ debut, self-released EP ‘On the Wagon’ put the boys on taste-maker Huw Stephens’ radar, whilst also becoming respected within the underground scene, selling out on pre-orders alone. Their follow up single ‘Even Out’ introduced them to a wider audience, as it was used on commercially released cinema and TV productions both UK and Europe wide. It culminated in the band being invited onto BBC Radio 4’s Loose Ends, Craig Charles’ BBC 6 Music show, Soccer AM and contribute to an unforgettable sold out Jazz Café performance.

This is a song which truly is the sum of its parts; that in isolation no one but Lazy Habits would imagine could work, but their creativity and craftsmanship has forged something beautiful, frantic and unique.

THE SUN: ‘’The best house party your parents never wanted you to have.’’

BBC: ‘’Lazy Habits prove they are anything but on stage”

Artwork to replace Martyn when Bloc comes to In:Motion

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on November 17, 2011 by E.N.

Due to unforseen and impossible circumstances Martyn has had to cancel his appearance at Bloc as part of In:Motion on the 25th November.

However, to replace him we welcome Artwork. Along with Skream and Benga Artwork is the third member of the mighty Magnetic Man, who have been dubbed the first half step super group. He also part owned the prestigious Big Apple records in Croydon, one of London´s surburbs which saw garage mutate into dubstep.

As Magnetic Man they perform using three computers, one playing drum samples, one playing basses and the third playing leads and samples. Artwork controls the master laptop, to which the other two are synchronised via Midi. Their sets usually consist of a mix of original tracks produced together, and live remixes of Benga and Skream´s tracks. Artwork will be playing alongside Joker, Nathan Fake, James Holden, 2562 plus many more.

 

As the English winter dictates the end of the UK festival season, Motion’s solid structure resumes play indoors letting the spirit of the summer blossom into the winter months.

Nearing the calibre of festival status in scale, sound and energy, Motion continue their expansion into yet more areas of the huge sprawling skate park, with warrens leading to multiple separate spaces, all hosting their own unique party.  Their ever-increasing loyal fan base and extensive line-ups are being pushed even further into the double warehouse, as well as outside in the car park, which comes equipped with food court, heated seating area and photo-booth. With each turn you can get more lost in Motion’s wondrous world of entertainment and outstanding music.

November sees the Field Day team take the magic of the festival and transport it through the night to the raw and vast confines of Bristol’s Motion.  After delivering a sterling line-up this summer in London’s Victoria Park, they hand pick the best for their In:Motion date, where we can witness DJ sets from Friendly FiresErol Alkan and Glaswegian electro whizz kid Hudson Mohawke.

Over the last few years, The BLOC Weekend annual festival has become a compulsory destination for electronic music fans.  No other UK festival so vigorously and variously reaps the vanguard of underground dance music past and present quite like they do. Last year they invited down dirty bird Claude Vonstroke and Andrew Weather to fill Motion’s Tunnel, with his unique and compelling musical selection. Destined to better themselves from last year, they bring dubstep prodigy Joker, hot off the heels of releasing his album ‘The Vision’ and Border Community Nathan Fake, for a festival sized line-up in an inner city club.

Sven Vath’s Cocoon are to techno what light is to fire. They continue to touch thousands of people across every continent with their inimitable brand and unfaltering shows. With weekly parties at Amnesia during the Ibiza season, Love Family Park, Green & Blue festivals and Cocoon in the Park, Cocoon are becoming synonymous with huge scaling events with immaculate production. One of Europe’s leading labels, they bring German duo Tiefschwarz alongside Shonkyand Dyed Soundorom from the French contingent, all heading to the West Country to bring the magic of Cocoon to Bristol for one night only.

Futureboogie join up with the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy and exude a festival feel with live shows from Crazy P and Henrik Schwarz, plus a back room hosted by London’s disco mafiaHorse Meat Disco. Ramping things up on the production side are Just Jack, who for their Halloween show bring aerial artists, art installations, costume and make up stalls. Interactive character actors will be roaming and terrorising all night throughout the club, on the floor and hanging from the ceiling. The Gunpowder Plot on the 5th November brings an explosion of action with a firework display, bonfire and circus performers to add more flames to the fire.

Bristol In Motion continues to stage live music events throughout the winter months from October through to the end of December. Offering the finest in musical and performing talent from across the world to touch your heart, body and soul – eyes and ears.
