Nathan 'Flutebox' Lee [Asian Dub Foundation, The Prodigy, Nitin, Sawhney, Plan B, Beardyman etc] and Ciarán ‘Muad'dib' O'Fathaigh [Mellissa Belle, Alexandra Burke, Aloe Blacc, Bashy, Speech Debelle etc] are set to release Wicked Labour on 04- 02 -19, the first track from their unique pan-genre EP project, BRUTUS STONE (Info Below) which features LA/London-based artist Brielle aka Aprilfoolchild and UK emcees and brothers Blackk Chronical and Phoenix Da Icefire

 

“So long as the Stone of Brutus is safe, so Long shall London flourish” [1]

Conceptually, the project is inspired by the legend of the Brutus Stone or London Stone which was purported to have been lain by Brutus of Troy as the foundation of the city of Trinovantum, “The New Troy In The West” – or as we know it – London.

This genre-defining collaboration with Muad'dib is legendary flautist Flutebox's first ever studio release, so he really wanted to make sure that the art was right. 'It's about identity.' he says 'More than anything else, I'm from London. This is where I can give directions. I'm not trying to beg some other identity, really.

And London means so much to mixed race people. That's the most honest thing about this. It's London as a 3rd - and perhaps predominant - identity'.

Over the years, writers such as Chaucer, Shakespeare and Alexander Pope have been inspired to add their own elements to the legend of Brutus and the stone. Roy Stephenson, head of archaeological collections at the Museum of London describes the stone as "the Dead centre, the throbbing heart which everything around London revolves". It's an artefact that has survived the great fire, the blitz and has lived through the ever-changing face of the most amazing, diverse city in the world.

Wicked Labour starts of like a late 50s soul jazz record with long, thoughtful chords that quickly unfolds into banging 808s that frame unmistakably UK grime and hip hop flows. The record is journey of changing landscapes that opens up into an epic, orchestral, cinematic panorama for the ride-out, but it never loses a sense of continuity or direction - even though when you consider the music retrospectively, it perhaps should.

Overall, the Brutus Stone is an intriguingly unique project. It moves through soul, jazz, grime, hiphop and trap - an ode to one of the most aspired-to cities on the planet.

Flutebox and Muaddib have known each other for around a decade. After meeting in the summer of '09 as artists performing at Bestival, they have composed, played and toured together, sharing stages with Jamelia, The Fun Loving Criminals, Jamelia and José González to name a few and have become genuinely close friends. 'Flutebox was at my dad's 9 nights,' Muad’dib recalls, not looking up from his mobile. 'That shit means a lot where we're from’.

What is it to be human? What unites us across time and continents and blood? Many have sought answers to such fundamental questions by examining sorrow and loss, death being a constant faced by us all. Some of the world’s greatest artists have used grief as a muse, searching for meaning in how we deal with what we lose and our capacity to overcome tragedy. And to the list of those who have grappled with such conceptions we must now add John Metcalfe, whose stunning Absence delivers a thoughtful and ultimately uplifting rumination on what death leaves behind, and how we come to terms with it.

Metcalfe has always been surrounded by music. As a child, he would listen to his father sing opera, before a love of Kraftwerk and Joy Division led to a stint as a drummer in a high school band. But it was a move to Manchester that really accelerated his development as an artist, and led to him finding his true calling. Joining cult band The Durutti Column, then signed to legendary label Factory Records, brought him into the orbit of Tony Wilson and the Haçienda, formative events that would help foster his renegade spirit.

Unimpressed with the strictures demanded by the classical recording industry, Metcalfe persuaded Wilson to launch the ground-breaking Factory Classical Label, aimed at unearthing exciting – and unconventional – new British talent. It was here that Metcalfe found a home, and the group that would come to define his musical career; the Duke Quartet. For nearly 30 years, they’ve existed at the vanguard of contemporary British music, innovating and delighting in equal measure. Working with world-renowned artists across the entire cultural spectrum, from pop, dance, film, TV, and theatre, Metcalfe honed his arranging and producing skills; he’s now one of the UK’s most sought after arrangers, regularly working with some of biggest names in music (Morrissey, U2, Coldplay, Blur, George Michael and Tom Jones).

As a solo artist, Metcalfe explores electro-classical soundscapes and the boundaries between genres. His finely tuned compositions are neat yet grand in scale, both in terms of sound and the conceptual ideas underpinning them. Absence, the fifth record to bear his own name, is something of a departure for Metcalfe, framing bold images and themes with some of the most conventional song structures he’s ever employed. But it’s also his most affecting, deconstructing a subject he’s been interested in since his childhood in New Zealand.

“There’s always been tracks influenced by the death of my father,” he says, although Absence was born in the aftermath of a very different tragedy; a friend’s sudden, unexpected suicide. Some months later, Metcalfe sat down to process his thoughts. “I wasn’t thinking of it to be cathartic,” he says of ‘Flood, Tide’. “I just wrote some words, and that was the start of it.” Over delicate, spectral piano, Metcalfe’s voice sounds disconsolate, shot through with sadness. “He lay free, gone”, he sings. “This time let go / Keep him inside”. The pain is palpable.

Written around the time of his last record, 2015’s The Appearance Of Colour, it found its way into his setlists and inspired a new suite of songs exploring not death itself, but the absence left by loved ones and how we remember them. The record is chronological, exploring the relationship between two lovers, one of whom is dying. “It’s about the conversations they have,” he explains. “The imagined conversations you’ll have when someone is in the final, physical stages of death, the electricity leaving our body, and the final thoughts of both the person about to die and the person who has to carry on with life.”

But Metcalfe’s triumph is to steer Absence away from the mawkish and trite, writing instead from a warm, loving perspective. “We have / so much / my love”, sings Rosie Doonan on elegiac opener ‘She Feels’, a gentle hymn about reminiscence and a life shared. It sets the tone beautifully, Metcalfe’s viola a soft hum underneath Doonan’s ghostly voice. And it’s the latter that’s often the stand out element, conveying a regal grace, poise, and hope.

“It’s less to do with me and more to do with Rosie,” says Metcalfe of the decision to continue with a full band set up on Absence. “I just love her voice.” The trio – Doonan, Ali Friend on bass, and Daisy Palmer on drums – have grounded his compositions and give a rich texture; witness Palmer propelling ‘Feel The Land’ to a crescendo, or adding to the jittery bustle of ‘Above The Waves Of Crystal Waters’. There’s also a precision to these songs, and their relative simplicity in comparison to his more experimental music gives each instrument space to breathe.

Even his own voice is elevated, floating alongside Doonan’s and occasionally forging ahead on its own. “I’m not a singer, I’m not trained,” he says. “But it has something; the sentiment or emotion I’m trying to describe.” Ditto his lyrics, which rely on neat couplets and clever rhymes, the exact meaning less important than the way they’re delivered. “Lyrics are so prescriptive, and I’m not a poet,” he explains. “I’ve tried to leave things open for the listener, to own it more themselves.”

And so one is left to catch the details and piece together the puzzle; returning to an empty house with trepidation in ‘Boats And Crosses’, finding acceptance in death in ‘When They Weep’, and memories of love giving the strength to carry on with life in ‘See Me Through’. Through it all, Metcalfe focuses on tenderness and love’s healing power, how “The sky sings of our union” (‘Above The Waves Of Crystal Waters’). Nature looms large too; rain, oceans, and sunlight hinting at the natural cycles that govern our lives, and how powerless we are to resist them.

All of these elements come together to devastating effect in ‘Solitude’, one of the most emotional, heartfelt tracks Metcalfe has ever written and the heart of Absence. “Those eyes, those smiles / Suddenly I / Solitude”, Doonan gently laments as plaintive piano and haunting viola perfectly capture the crushing feeling of being alone. But even as the protagonist bleeds and weeps, hope is offered as a salve; “I dream / Open the door”. Metcalfe’s gift is to gently remind us that while nothing ever lasts forever,

we owe it to our dearly departed to forge ahead with the life we have left, and to live it in their honour.

This gained the Bratislava based artist immediate attention by tastemakers like Mary Anne Hobs or Machinedrum.

With his follow up “Words”, FVLCRVM offered a crisp and eloquent take on pop music and provided the viewer with a peak into a mind-blowing version of a gloomy yet dystopian future. Great support from Spotify and Apple Music as well as renowned Magazines like DJ MAG & Sound of Music made clear that FVLCRVM is a name to look out for.

Oscillating between mainstream & underground, between Pop, UK Bass & Future Beats, FVLCRVM is one of the most promising artists to enter the music world in 2019.

LINE OF BEST FIT Premiere The New Single From BAAST - "Absolutely stunning voice"

ARTIST: BAAST
TITLE: RED LION
LABEL: SCOPE MUSIC
FORMAT: DIGITAL

 

 

Fresh out of the South-West duo BAAST bring dark alternative pop, mesmeric synthesis and sound design intertwined with spoken word and soulful vocals. Unafraid to tackle politicised themes of identity, their performance will captivate and challenge the way you’re told to think. After a year of producing and writing together, they aim to bring a refreshing, brooding sound to the ears of listeners.

Formed by Beth Griffin (Grove) and Josh Petkovic’-Short (Diessa), the pair met in Cheltenham before developing their cohesive sound through Studio 340, a creative community arts venue. Here, they began their out-of-the-ordinary journey.

Growing up in a limiting, restricted and conforming community, Beth was left feeling disconnected from her surroundings, while Josh fell disillusioned with society. The years of inability to explore personal identity now fuels their ambition to craft songs that speak a visceral truth about what it’s like to grow up with that disconnect. The importance of individuality is prominent throughout BAAST’s performance, and their powerful tales charge through every second of each song.

The magnetising duo are highly anticipated within their local live scene, as both work on their solo projects. Josh releases left-field electronic music under Diessa and runs label/art collective Gloam Recordings, working with the likes of Brian Eno endorsed artist R.ariel, as well as Yuki Ame, LTO and Kayla Painter. Beth is also one of five within her hip-hop vocal collective group ‘5 Mics’ (Griz-O, JPDL).

As well as performing at Greenman Settlement Festival, Witcombe Cider Festival and Tadstock, she has supported the likes of Martha Reeves & The Vandellas, The Hot 8 Brass Band and So Solid Crew.

HYBRID
LIGHT OF THE FEARLESS
LABEL: DISTINCTIVE / 
RELEASE PERIOD: JULY / AUGUST 2018

 

Light of the Fearless, Hybrid’s fifth artist album, brings together UK-based, Mike and Charlotte’s passion for combining emotionally powered cinematic pieces with astute, intricate and intelligent electronic production. This long-awaited work is firmly based on the foundation of the principles and standards set by previous albums but here there’s a clear development and evolution.   Never wanting to write the same album twice, Mike and Charlotte have taken another step forward and have created a cinematic, electronic album with songs that stylistically borrow from their childhood soundtracks of soul, funk & hip-hop.

Since their last album in 2010 the band have expanded their ever growing body of film score work (Fast and Furious 8, Interlude In Prague, Hercules, Dead in Tombstone, Luther, X-men, Deja Vu ). The cinematic ethos is strong on this album with The Prague Philharmonic Orchestra featuring on eight tracks.

The second release from Boxwork’s eponymous Boxwork Music label comes again from the man himself. ‘Trench’ is the successor to ‘Dive Left’, Boxwork’s first full length released on Shades Recordings last year; it takes the listener even further down the rabbit hole into the imagined world that Boxwork’s mad music inhabits. In his typical fashion, ‘Trench’ covers lots of musical ground. This record has no genre but is influenced by them all. Boxwork signatures are there in droves though, of course. Lots of tempos, obscure samples, and music as intensely melodic,
percussive, sonic experiments and explorations. Music by a man in a white coat and lab specs. ‘Trench’ follows ‘Heading North’ as offering number two on the Boxwork Music label. Boxwork says of the label “Its an outlet for un-compromised musical decisions, putting family first”.
The two releases could hardly be more different and it’s a measure of the skill, versatility and musicality Boxwork brings to the party that the two records are composed by the same man. It’s why his new composition project Builder’s Tea is brewing up nicely over in the world of moving pictures.
With original artwork by Craig Johnson II and a limited-edition vinyl package including an artwork print also available, Boxwork Music has the format and collector
geek in you covered too. ‘Trench’ is available to stream and download via all your favourite channels (please don’t pirate this shit).

Noah Slee x Delusion Release 'Maybe' Single
[via Majestic Casual Records]

Following on from his highly praised and 4x Pacific Music Awards NZ nominated debut album ‘Otherland’, Noah Slee returns with his new single ‘Maybe’, alongside German production collaborator Delusion, to be released  May / June 2018 via Majestic Casual Records.

Championed by tastemakers around the world including Jamz Supernove and MistaJam (BBC 1Xtra), Annie Mac and Huw Stepehns (BBC Radio 1), Lauren Laverne (BBC Radio 6), KCRW, Boiler Room, leading online media, and festivals across Europe, Noah Slee is a force to be reckoned with, and is continuing to add to his prolific catalogue of releases with this latest jam.

Delusion began turning heads with his innovative remix releases for Pham and SG Lewis which stacked up millions of streams and landed him the #1 spot on the Hype Machine charts.
Tight production and Noah Slee's characteristic swagger sees 'Maybe' reach soulful heights, driven by textured percussion and a groove that promises to be a dancefloor filler.

''Maybe' plays with the energy you get when you meet someone and there's an instant connection. As long as I have been single (a while now) every encounter feels more distant and lost. When I met this guy it was different. Maybe is about the grey zone, the uncertainty, the leap your waiting for the other person to take because you don't want to. All these things you take into consideration in such a small amount of time about someone and maybe disguise it with other things to protect yourself from taking a relationship to the next step. Simplicity of something like love can be pretty complicated. Maybe is about pursuit of connection.

Working with Delusion felt natural. He is attentive and has a chilled energy. Sharing ideas back and forth was easy. Although it was a compact few days in the studio we made sure to have fun, drink wine and make the best music we could. He was on production duties and we also had some friends participate with minor details (guitar, lyric).'Noah Slee
