Surkin to release debut artist album “USA” – a fantasy eighties soundscape

Marble is proud to announce the November 7th release of Surkin’s debut artist album, “USA.”

Originally designed to be out on Institubes, Marble was the logical choice to release “USA” after the demise of the influential French label. It features 16 tracks, with guest vocals by Detroit’s Ann Saunderson (Inner City) and Chicago’s Kevin Irving (the voice of house blueprint “Move Your Body” by Marshall Jefferson); and two collaborations with friend and label mate Bobmo, whom with Surkin works as High Powered Boys.

It’s a joyous, juvenile, body-moving record, based on the idea of a radio station called Fireworks FM, set up in Silver Springs. The whole vibe exhales a fantasized eighties soundscape, infused with dance subgenres from that era but dramatically edited by Surkin’s own imaginary memories.

Club tracks galore, but also expect more melodic emotional mid-tempo cuts, but definitely not in a filler way. Mastery all over the place yet infused with a tremendous feeling of exuberance and freedom. Needless to say it’s an instant classic.

Spoek Mathambo-Don’t Mean To Be Rude(Video+Free Download+EP Stream))

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 11, 2011 by E.N.

    Produced by Julie Machin & Spoek Mathambo

    Edited by Neopen

    Don’t Mean To Be Rude is the third single from South African artist, Spoek Mathambo’s debut album Mshini Wam. The video features the booty-crazed rapper locked in a weird basement with the devil and his dominatrix sidekicks (played by Johannesburg’s grimiest erotic dancers) ; a rigged dice match and some obscure feeder games.

    It’s common knowlege that whenever someone starts a sentence with the phrase, ‘I don’t mean to be rude’, you should brace yourself for some low down and dirty rudeness or run for the hills.

    Here, Spoek Mathambo brings the rudeness via an accelerated skank courtesy of London bass rangers LV (most widely known for their genre defying releases on Hyperdub). Canadian avant soul singer Zaki Ibrahim plays the co-conspirator on the bassy nugget adding something sweet to Spoek’s gutter mouth party song.

    ABOUT SPOEK MATHAMBO

    Part of a new breed of African artists, 25 year old Spoek Mathambo (Rapper/DJ and Graphic Designer/Illustrator) is hitting the world hard with his take on Afro-futurism. Spoek sees himself as a part of a new wave of energy in Africa, which is intent on nurturing a sense of progressiveness while maintaining a pride in culture. Spoek Mathambo has become a increasingly prominent figure in the international music scene over the last couple of years, with features on Boysnoize Records, Potty Mouth Music, Top Billin Records, Man Recordings as well as for his electro-rap groups Playdoe and Sweat.X. Most recently, Spoek Mathambo has finished recording his solo album, Mshini Wam for BBE, and has built a live band to tour the project. The release of this project is particularly exciting as a sign to the world of what Africa has in store in terms of progressive electronic music. As a DJ, Spoek’s HIVIP project of promoting South African music has gathered widespread attention as far afield as the New York Times and Fader Magazine, and has seen him DJ in USA, Argentina, Norway, France, Sweden and Germany.

In general, whenever someone starts a sentence with the phrase, ‘I don’t mean
to be rude’, you should be worried, brace yourself for some low down and dirty rudeness or run for the hills like a p***y.

In this case, Spoek Mathambo is inviting you to join in on the dirty fun with the
third single ‘Don’t Mean To Be Rude’ from his debut album ‘Mshini Wam’. The South African wunderkind is bringing the rudeness via an accelerated skank courtesy of London bass rangers LV (most widely known for their epic releases on Hyperdub).
Canadian avant soul singer Zaki Ibrahim. plays the co-conspirator on the bassy nugget adding something sweet to Spoek’s gutter mouth party song.
Levels go peak with an allstar team of remixers… Yep, we went for Olympic Gold on this one! UK bass music impresario, Scratcha DVA (UK, Hyperdub – Rinse FM), froggy party ! killers, Toadally Krossed Out (USA, Mad Decent) and French club ambassador, Don Rimini (FR, Mental Groove) brought in the medals with their club remixes.

I don’t mean to be rude, but the music video of Don’t Mean To Be Rude features some of Johannesburg’s grimiest erotic dancers shaking their thick backs; a rigged dice match against the devil and a little dominatrix display…African style!!!

I don’t mean to be rude but if you don’t cop this one…you’re just not living right!!
