Speech Debelle —Freedom Of Speech

Speech Debelle —Freedom Of Speech
BD193
Released 06/02/2012

Two years since winning the 2009 Mercury Music Prize for her debut album, “Speech Therapy,” and having ridden a rollercoaster through life since then, Speech Debelle is ready to drop her second collection of music.

Entitled “Freedom of Speech,” the album sees Speech turning from introspection to stand up, face and engage with the world around her, spitting confident themes of revolution and love. Still brutally honest, yet a more mature and exciting record with lyrics to match, the new sound was shaped in collaboration with Kwes, a young South London producer who already boasts production for DELS, a record contract with Warp and a recent trip to the Democratic Republic of Congo as part of Damon Albarn’s DRC project for Oxfam.

A first taste of the album came in the aftermath of this summer’s riots, when Speech reacted immediately, leaking the track “Blaze Up A Fire,” (also featuring Roots Manuva and Realism), a track about political revolution written months before. Going on record about the causes of the riots in a statement and on twitter gave rise to heated debate, yet as the dust settled, there remained respect for her speaking out with insight, while others chose to stay silent.

So now the build-up begins to the release of “Freedom of Speech” in early February 2012 with the free download of the track “Studio Backpack Rap.” From political to musical revolution, Speech describes the track as being “all about virtual instrumentation and an ode to Kwes the producer. For the writing stage of the album he would take out his laptop and midi-USB keyboard and that would be it. We’d start working and I couldn’t believe what we could do with so little equipment.”

Over a catchy, bumping, jostling piece of music which pays tribute to the essence of hip hop without feeling the need to sound too much like it, Speech lays out clever, witty lyrics about the high-tech, low-gloss DIY attitude which has relevance far beyond just creating music. Optimistic, sly, funny and an undeniable head-nodder, it’s a long way from “Speech Therapy,” while showcasing just one aspect of her remarkable new album.

Spain’s Sonar Fest Headed To Chicago (Sept. 9-11)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on June 16, 2010 by dk

Sonar, Barcelona’s experimental and electronic music festival, is to hold its first event in Chicago between Sept. 9-11.

Sonar was founded in 1994, but since 2002 has held parallel events outside Spain. Its first excursion into the United States was last year, with two events held in Washington and New York. In its early years, Sonar attracted mainly United Kingdom musicians, as well as a strong contingent from Barcelona’s home region of Catalonia.

Sonar says it expects the Chicago festival to become a regular event. The Chicago operation will be promoted together with Bonnaroo promoter AC Entertainment, with the collaboration of the cultural organization Institut Ramon Llull.

Sonar’s aim is to “disseminate the philosophy of the Barcelona festival and adapt it to new cities and formats.” In Chicago, it will present a “multi-disciplinary line-up with an experimental slant,” says Sonar, and will focus on emerging talent and local scenes in both North America and Catalonia.

The Sonar by Day events in Chicago will be held at the Chicago Cultural Center (CCC), and the headquarters of the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs. The program will be completed with Sonar by Night shows and sessions.

The line-up will as usual combine some important names and less mainstream and more experimental offerings, and details will be announced in mid-July.

Caribou, Speech Debelle, Pete Tong, LCD Soundsystem, Air, Plastikman, Hot Chip, the Chemical Brothers, Roxy Music and Dizzee Rascal will play the Barcelona event June 17-19.

Since 2002, Sonar has held 24 events around the world, such as Lisbon (2002), Neuchatel (2002), Hamburg (2002-06), Tokyo (2002-2004-2006), London (2002-2005, 2009 and 2010) Rome (2003), Sao Paulo (2004), Lyon (2004), Buenos Aires (2006), and Seoul (2006).

The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack to BAFTA Award Winning Noel Clarke’s gripping thriller following three days in the lives of four very different girls with intricately woven stories. Mirroring the film’s authenticity of teen life, the soundtrack brings together the true champions of the burgeoning urban music scene with tracks from Adam Deacon, Bashy, Paloma Faith, Speech Debelle and many more. From dance and rap to acoustic pop/ rock, the soundtrack introduces the new breed of talented artists delivering the freshest, ground-breaking sounds. “Keep Moving” by Adam Deacon & Bashy featuring Paloma Faith is the stunning theme track which cleverly samples Suzanne Vega’s 1980s cult classic “Tom’s Diner” with an energetic and modern twist.
Unique to the 4.3.2.1 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack are four exclusive audio extracts taken from the film, featuring the voices of stars Emma Roberts, Adam Deacon, Kevin Smith, Gregg Chillin and Tamsin Egerton.

Ninja Tune XX – 20 Years Of Beats ‘n’ Pieces – Limited Boxset out september 20th on Ninja Tune

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on May 2, 2010 by dk

Various – Ninja Tune XX – 20 Years Of Beats ‘n’ Pieces
(Boxset/CD/CD) Ninja Tune ZENCD160X/ZENCD160/ZENC160R, 2010-09-20

Ninja Tune: 20 Years of Beats & Pieces is the latest in Black Dog Publishing’s popular Labels Unlimited series. To mark the 20th anniversary of this truly unique and groundbreaking record label, established by Coldcut’s Matt Black and Jonathan More, 20 Years of Beats & Pieces includes exclusive interviews with many of the key artists and label staff from Ninja Tune and its successful subsidaries including Big Dada and Counter.

Ninja Tune’s impressive roster of artists includes Coldcut, DJ Food, Amon Tobin, Mr Scruff, Roots Manuva, Cinematic Orchestra, Bonobo, Ty, The Heavy, Speech Debelle, The Herbaliser, Spank Rock, Funki Porcini, DJ Vadim, Daedelus, Kid Koala, The Bug and Wiley. 20 Years of Beats & Pieces is lavishly illustrated with original photographs and illustrations plundered from the deepest depths of Ninja Tune and their artists’ archives.

20 Years of Beats & Pieces is a stylish and exhaustive survey telling the story of the record label, the artists themselves, their art and the ways in which their influence was and still is felt in larger culture. A truly inspirational tale, beginning with Black and More crossing paths in the mid-80s and going on to form the chart topping Coldcut. When touring Japan 20 years ago, they grew tired of how the staid, uncomprehending major label was manipulating the group and they had the vision and drive to break free and set up Ninja Tune – a label that remains as innovative today as it was then.

An ecclectic and colourful volume, 20 Years of Beats & Pieces is an indispensable book for anyone with an interest in electronic music, independent labels and the music industry.
