Mega Mega Mega, the much anticipated debut album from The Count & Sinden, is ready for release this summer on 23rd August 2010. Mega Mega Mega is a meeting of minds between two friends – both producers and DJs in their own right – collating their vast range of musical influences. This was an album The Count (aka Hervé) & Sinden simply had to make.
Following the ethos of their huge club nights of the same name, The Count & Sinden reject the idea of enlisting A-list stars, and instead call in friends and fresh new talent. Indie mavericks (and the duo’s neighbours) Mystery Jets collaborate on highly addictive lead single After Dark (released August 16th); M.I.A protégée Baltimore-based Rye Rye lends her vocals to Hardcore Girls; rising UK star Katy B features on the ragga punk love story Hold Me and the unmistakable voice of grime king Bashy appears on Addicted To You. The opening track, Do You Really Want It, featuring the breathtaking rapping skills of Trackademicks, is a suitable call to arms – all twitching synths and alien throbs.
Every sound imaginable is fed into The Count & Sinden’s visceral mix – house, techno, dancehall, hip hop, electro, ragga, garage, afrobeat, booty bass, Latin funk, baile… The result is an authentically British album jam-packed full of anthems for a party loving generation; a record which is unapologetically honest, playful and hedonistic. This is a new chapter in the history of forward-thinking, electronic dance music, as written by The Count & Sinden.
The Count & Sinden – Mega Mega Mega by DominoRecordCo
Earlier this year, UK bass icon Sinden launched his own record label, Grizzly. The label’s discography is only a few releases deep—the most recent being WAFA’s “Ewid Disco” 12”—but it’s quickly become clear that Sinden’s A&R acumen is as potent as his talent for crafting high-quality radio broadcasts, not to mention his top-notch DJ and production skills. Speaking of the latter, he’s also got the debut album from The Count & Sinden slated for release in the near future, not to mention plenty more Grizzly releases and his usual spate of DJ gigs around the globe. Amidst all this, Sinden somehow found the time to assemble a mix for the XLR8R podcast series, and, as expected, it weaves together propulsive, low-end-heavy tunes—many of them unreleased and/or exclusive—that touch on different scenes, sounds, and continents.
