“Why Did We Have To Part?”
Iconic, influential, and inimitable, Marianne has been an entrancing and creative musical presence for the past 47 years.  Beginning with her debut single, “As Tears Go By” (1964, the first song ever written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards), Marianne has created an enduring legacy with her distinct, emotive, and truly haunting voice.   She has also established herself as a powerful songwriter with a gift for crafting visceral melodies and deeply resonant lyrics.  Her artistic fearlessness has led her to sing with legends like David Bowie and Metallica, and collaborate with a younger generation of musicians she influenced such as Beck, Morrissey, Billy Corgan and Blur.
 
Horses and High Heels was recorded in New Orleans and features a core of masterful local musicians.  It was produced by Hal Willner (Laurie Anderson, Allen Ginsberg), who also helmed Marianne’s critically-acclaimed 2009 collection of covers and duets: Easy Come, Easy Go. The songs touch on everything from soul, blues, folk, country, jazz-pop perkiness, and beguiling guitar-rock.  Much like the rest of her career, the only consistent theme or style of the album is Marianne herself.

PeteStrume​ntals – 10th Anniversar​y Expanded & Limited Edition by Pete Rock

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 11, 2011 by dk

Released: 2011-05-10

Best known for his work with CL Smooth, and his remixes for Public
Enemy, House of Pain, Mary J Blige and Mick Jagger to mention a few.
Hailing from the little town of Mt. Vernon, NY, right next to the
Bronx, Pete Rock & CL Smooth pretty much got together in their local high school when Pete noticed  CLs dope and unique voice. After high school,
Pete hooked up a weekend hip-hop show on WBLS-FM and was considered one of NYs premier DJs during his four year stint on the show. All Souled Out was Pete & CLs debut EP, it was the phenomenal production by Pete Rock which really drew people to this EP. If the legendary DJ Mark The 45 King was the first producer to incorporate horns, Pete Rock was the first to really perfect this new style of production with his trademark echoing horns laced throughout his music. This was done very nicely on two of the cuts off the EP, Creator and Mecca & The Sou! l Brother, and people were taking notice in a big way.
After the solid Mecca/Creator 12 inch, the duo unleashed one of those all-time classic LPs every MC dreams of having, Mecca & The Soul Brother featuring the monumental: They Reminisce Over You, Straighten It Out, Ghettos Of The Mind, and Lots Of Lovin. Songs to make you cry – damn, they were playing  TROY at funerals everywhere. One of the greatest hip hop records ever made …it never leads my box man…- (Tim Westwood)

Pete Rock on hip hop: Hip hop to me today is still important but we are going through a phase right now. Hip Hop as been injected by a virus, and right now weve got to find a cure to this. Which brings along myself. (Frank 151)

The Press

…from downtempo, funkdified sounds to hypnotic hip–hop beats,
this is a wonderfully crafted album – (BPM July 2001)
This hypnotic … album represents hip hops incredible a! bility to morph and manipulate a hodgepodge of sounds to creat! e someth ing unique…although the sound is now industrial, electronic and everything but natural Pete’s
version of hip hop will remain a classy affair that merges the elements of an orchestra, the roots of black music and the cacophony of the streets. – (Mass Appeal July 2001)

To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the cult series, Beat Generation, B BE are re-releasing a re-mastered, expanded and limited version of  ”Petestrumentals” on CD and digital.

M.O.D. Technologies To Release Albums

by Method of Defiance

& Gigi in October

 
M.O.D. TECHNOLOGIES created by the principle members of Method Of Defiance. This label is a modern evolution of the original AXIOM label – for the purpose of destroying, discerning musical  genres, trends, approved or unapproved formats, false ideas and other unnecessary borders. All releases are the direct manifestations of Bill Laswell and other key members of the collective. The label is formed for the advancement of art and communication, in all forms of the creative process.

Method of Defiance Features All-Star Crew of:

Bill Laswell, Bernie Worrell, Dr. Israel, Hawk, DJ Krush, Toshinori Kondo and Guy Licata.

Grammywinning electric bassist, producer, and re-mixer Bill Laswell has worked with many of music’s biggest names on the planet, including Herbie Hancock, Laurie Anderson,  George ClintonBrian EnoTony Williams, Mick Jagger, Williams Burroughs, Afrika Bambaataa, Motorhead, John Lydon, Bootsy Collins, Carlos Santana, Matisyahu, Anthony Braxton, Sting, Zakir Hussein, John Zorn, and hundreds more from the Americas, Africa The Caribbean, Europe, The Middle East, China, and Japan.  Laswell has built a reputation on consistently working with a diverse array of artists, and rejecting the restrictions of genre, tradition, and commerce in favor or taking risks and uniting seemingly disparate voices.  It is with this ethos that he has formed the record label M.O.D. Technologies, which is set to release albums this October by the group Method of Defiance and one of Ethiopia’s most famous contemporary vocalists, Gigi. In addition, the label is planning releases from Dr. Israel, Gnawa Fusion, Afa Negus, and DJ Krush in the near future.

A cross-generational affair that incorporates elements of reggae, hip hop, dancehall, dub, electronica, rock, roots music and more. The beauty lies within its ability to touch on multiple overlapping cultural reference points.
