Imany – You Will Never Know (Oliver $, Miguel Campbell & Matt Hughes and Phonique Remix)(Preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on August 22, 2013 by E.N.

Imany - You Will Never KnowThe first release with the number HED001 comes from the Kenyan artist, Imany.

Translated from her Kiswahili mother tongue, Imany means “Faith”, which is a term that runs like a thread throughout the inception of this Franco-African soul newcomer.

When Nadia Mladjao (alias Imany) returned to Paris around three years ago, she did not have much in her tiny suitcase except a few dresses, a photo album and a demo CD with six self-written songs on it. The exceptionally talented Imany grew up in a small suburb of the French capital. Later she worked as a sought-after fashion model in New York for seven years before deciding she had enough of simply being an changeable clothing rail and giving up that life to pursue her big passion – music. To finally be free again – free to start something new. To venture far away from the superficial fashion industry and into reality.

The 2 Bears, comprised of Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) and Raf Daddy, has announced the release of their debut full-length, Be Strong, which will come out digitally on January 31st via DFA Records, with the physical release following in the spring. Today, the band has announced two EP’s for “Work,” and are giving away the album version of the track.

The first Work EP is due out January 24th, and includes a remix by St. Etienne, a 2 Bears dub mix, and b-side “Shake Down.” The second Work EP follows on February 7th, and features remixes by Toddla T, Oliver $, and Sona Vabos.

A London record through and through, Be Strong ducks and weaves to the myriad sounds of the city, as The 2 Bears pursue the perfect party record.  Raf Daddy (aka Raphael Rundell) met Joe Goddard (taking time out from his day job as one fifth of Hot Chip) through a party scene that saw them share deck duties at the legendary Greco-Roman parties. Upon venturing into the studio in an attempt to replicate some of the records that they’d lost themselves in the night before, Raf found himself laying down vocals over Joe’s skipping, bassomatic backing tracks safe in the knowledge that they’d soon be replaced by someone with sweeter, more melodious tones. In the end, it was Raf’s voice that characterized and personalized The 2 Bears.

Over its ten tracks, Be Strong conjures up that elusive spirit of the dancefloor without pretension, and with ultimate precision. It’s a soul record in that it’s from the soul, wearing its imperfections with pride. It’s a dance record in that it’ll get you off your seat. It’s a London record in that it couldn’t have come from any other city in 2011, echoing the glorious schizophrenic sound of a late night cab ride listening to a radio with a mind of its own.

With minimal effort and maximum respect from their peers, tracks began to be hammered in clubs and on radio by the likes of Andrew Weatherall, Erol Alkan, Pete Tong and Annie Mac.  This summer’s Bear Hug EP cranked things up yet another notch with Chris Moyles giving the track some early morning airings and Elton John and Paul McCartney declaring themselves fans.

Debut Album, Be Strong, Comes Out
January 31st via DFA Records

The 2 Bears, aka Joe Goddard (Hot Chip) and Raf Daddy, has announced the release of their debut full-length, Be Strong, which will come out digitally on January 31st via DFA Records, with the physical release following in the spring. The band has shared a new music video for “Work,” the first single from Be Strong, which you can check out on DFA’s vimeo page.

A London record through and through, Be Strong ducks and weaves to the myriad sounds of the city, as The 2 Bears pursue the perfect party record. Alongside tracks like “Be Strong,” “Church” and the mighty “Bear Hug” – a pummeling treatise on the benefits of the peak time dancefloor cuddle. Raf and Joe mutate genres into previously unheard territories of dancehall country on the bouncing prison yard lament “Time In Mind” and garage reggae on “Heart Of the Congos,” a track that manages to simultaneously channel both Wookie and early ‘80s Madness before placing them each at a system in the heart of Notting Hill Carnival at dusk.

The 2 Bears Unveil Work Video; DFA To Release Debut Album In US

With the anticipation around the release of The 2 Bears’ (Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard and Raf Daddy) debut album reaching fever pitch, our ursine stars have unveiled the video for their new single, Work, and announced that their album will now be released through DFA Records in the US.
Filmed on location in Brixton Market, South London, and the bears’ own studio, the video features the local community getting ready for the day ahead, preparing their stalls, tattooing their clients and in Joe and Raf’s case getting in an early morning visit to the barbers to be de-furred.
Directed by Zaiba Jabbar, the video perfectly catches the spirit of the song showcasing another side to The 2 Bears and the area of London they work and play in. The video is now available to be streamed on The 2 Bears’ YouTube channel, the single is released on January 2nd and comes complete with remixes fromToddla TOliver $Supabeatz and Franky Rizardo.
The 2 Bears debut album, Be Strong, tipped to be one of THE debuts of 2012, will now be simultaneously released on the 30th January on Southern Fried in the UK and on DFA Records in the US.
Alongside previously released tracks like Be StrongChurch and the mighty Bear Hug – a pummelling treatise on the benefits of the peak time dancefloor cuddle – Raf and Joe mutate genres into previously unheard territories.
Taking in such previously undreamt of delights as dancehall country on the bouncing prison yard lament Time In Mind and garage reggae on Heart Of the Congos, a track that manages to simultaneously channel both Wookie and early ‘80s Madness before placing them each at a system in the heart of Notting Hill Carnival at dusk, Be Strong is a unique album set to redefine the sound of dancefloors in 2012.
