Very pleased to be able to say that this is officially here! Check out this brand new split 12-inch EP out now on Dora Dorovitch(France).. with brand new material from Rickolus and debut project from D R O N E S (Swordplay + PT Burnem + Erik Akers of Double Rainbow)! This is an acoustic album with a twist; being both musically sound, fusing incredible lyricism making this an album to take us into the future.

D R O N E S“D R O N E S is a folk rap group from Richmond, VA who combines acoustic and digital elements into their music. Sounding like what you might expect if Pink Floyd had ever rapped, the songs oscillate appropriately between electronic shoegaze and the droned out workings of acoustic guitars. Lyrically, D R O N E S is a paranoia soaked nosedive into the collective subconscious of America. Written from the perspective of drone operators, while sometimes taking on the homicidal voices of the drones themselves, D R O N E S offers a collection of songs that could easily be imagined sung around a post-World War III campfire”.

Rickolus“Rivers and Lakes is a five part folk song about the ridiculous beautiful trials of a young romantic. It was written as a burst of words almost unconsciously pouring out of Rick Colado late at night while he was working as a projectionist at a movie theatre. The music came together when Rick showed the bare songs to his friends Anthony Anurca and Rebecca Zapen who then added their wild talent to the record, giving the songs the strange arrangement of guitar, voice, violin and bassoon. It’s a unique but familiar sound, recorded live in a little green shed in Rick’s parents backyard, the sounds blend together as if they were all coming from one source”.

Smokey Joe & the Kid

SMOKEY JOE & THE KID – The Game(Ep) – Out Now!!

Word up People!

Hope you’re having a good week so far and we’re gonna share some good tunes with you to make it even better…

I recently had the honour of checking out the new EP from Banzai Lab production duo Smokey Joe & The Kid called “The Game” and all I can say is WOW!! This EP is an incredible blend of multiple instruments, percussion, scratches and on point lyricism making up one hell of an EP that you simply can’t miss.
COVER_EP_RECTO
***
“In this project, Smokey Joe, Bordeaux’s main musical mafia head, and The Kid aka “Senbeï,” cheeky Parisian master of Turntablism, transport us back in time to the gangster run streets of 1930’s Chicago. These two gangsters mix Hip Hop and Electro with the groove and melodies of early 20th century Swing. Percussion solos played with scratches ,beats and melodies banged out on the MPC, everything is performed live.
***
A year after their acclaimed first album « Nasty Tricks » (Banzaï Lab – 2013), the most wanted gangsters of the electro Hip-Hop scene are back with a new EP “The Game”, recorded between Paris, Los Angeles and San Francisco.
Smokey Joe & The Kid_Photo

Clearly Hip-Hop oriented, with samples still taken from traditional american music of early XXth century, Smokey Joe & The Kid took a trip to California to record 4 tracks, each powerful, captivating and overall, absolutely brilliant.

Smokey Joe & The Kid : « We wanted to step out of pure jazz and to get more into the roots of all modern music : the Blues. We drove a lot during our stay in California, and west American landscape fed our imaginary world, as much as the heat of Los Angeles’ streets.”

After collaborating on their first opus with Puppetmastaz, Lateef The Truthspeaker, or Youthstar (Chinese Man), the duo hired this time accomplices from the US West Coast : Gift of Gab (Blackalicious), NON Genetic (Shadowhuntaz) and The Procussions (Watch the making of the EP). Gift of Gab gives a conscious message on “Stay Awake” when NON tells all about his touring experiences “What goes on tour stays on tour” (Gifted Child). Finally, The Procussions end the EP with poetry on “Temptation”.

« The Game » is clearly in reference to the famous “Rap Game” of which they make a personal interpretation, finding there the game field of their old-fashioned megalomania.

THE LIVE PROJECT :

Since 2013, Smokey Joe & The Kid work with the VJ Miss Chemar to deliver a unique A/V Show that mixes old school movies and original pictures of the duo. The strong interaction with the audience makes this a fun, original and incredibly dynamic show”!

MOODIE BLACK’s “HAWK vs. VULTURE”Official Music Video + Limited Edition 12″ Picture Vinyl Out Now!!

Here is the brand new video from MOODIE BLACK for their track “Hawk Vs. Vulture”!
Check it out!!

This track is lifted fromMoodie Black’s new album Nasea out now on Dora Dorovitch (Vinyl), Jarring Effects (Digital France, Belgium, Switzerland, Luxemburg) & Fake Four Inc via Redeye (CD and Digital rest of the world)!!
You can grab yourself a copy of the digital album from Fake Four here:

Also available; the limited edition 12″ picture vinyl via Dora Dorovitch!!
you can purchase the vinyl by clicking on the image below:
*Click here to purchase the "Nausea" Limited Edition 12" Picture disc!*

“Nausea. Disorienting. Anxious. Unsettled. It is hard to imagine better words for the debut release by post-noise rap pioneers Moodie Black. Like the concept of Nausea itself used in existential philosophies of Jean Paul Sartre, the album is a sonic confrontation with the beauty of an unsettled mood, a disconnection with what is everyday and common. Following up their 2013 self-titled E.P. that herald their mastery of integrating hip-hop styled rap with punishing noise, static, and industrial yet melodic soundscapes, Nausea offers audiences a different vision of what noise rap can be. Unlike the uptempo tracks found on their self-titled E.P. release (No Blood ft. Ceschi Ramos; Hipster Death; Last Griot ft. Dälek), Nausea reveals a more downtempo, near catatonic, dystopian, and beautiful mood. The band seems to have traded in raw, punishing static force, for more sophisticated ambient sounds and progressions. The album has a dark continuity and holds together well under its half-time rhythmic, head nod inducing pulses. Lyrics tell a story about the band’s frustrations with mass conformity, societal lack of sincerity, all while also paying homage to the transcendent quality of the human struggle as a meaningful one. Like the existential concept of Nausea itself, Moodie Black’s Nausea present sonic basic truths about human nature and existence. As its big beats, prodding rhythms, on point lyrical flows, wailing vocals, blissed out synth and dark guitars come crashing down upon us, Nausea upsets our everyday understanding of not only noise rap by shocking us into a new awareness about the genre, but also about what existence more generally, can be.

Triune Gods

Triune Gods “≠ Three Cornered World” – Out Now!!

Got to give this a listen the other day and found it incredibly refreshing…
Introducing Triune Gods and their all new album “≠ Three Cornered World”!!
Get your copy here:

“Three feathers come together – sibitt (MC/Singer) from Japan, bleubird (MC) from USA, and Scott Da Ros (beatmaker/producer) from Canada. These are three very different musical entities from three different worlds, who when formed together become a very powerful triad of creative authenticity. Triune Gods are a rare, multilingual, and experimental hip hop group. 
In 2008, bleubird and Scott met sibitt on tour in Japan. Already fans of each other’s music, they clicked immediately, and at that moment the plan to collaborate was set into motion. In 2010 they finally met again for a week in Montreal to record their debut album Seven Days Six Nights. It was then that they became Triune Gods. 
Together their musical output has many sides: playful, intense, tragic and beyond. With their second studio album, ≠ Three Cornered World, they were more accustomed to the process of working together – thus able to explore further into unknown and exciting territories”. 

Each of them has their own unique style of musicianship and respect from many music lovers around the world. Race, language, and orders don’t contain them. 

People, welcome to Triune Gods’ universe!
