Großartiger neuer Song von Sampa The Great:

When making this song there was a conscious decision to highlight the balancing of the masculine and feminine aspects of all our energy.
Our perceptions of strength and weakness can be flawed and it’s important to re-evaluate and re-balance ourselves in this unbalanced world.
I feel honored to have worked with a talented crew, production team and director for the visual. We are all proud and talented creatives of colour trying to connect with each other across the globe. I’m glad we could.

Serpentwithfeet macht experimentellen R’n’B-Sound, der mit Bibelsymbolik und anderen konservativen Weltbildern kokettiert.
Dabei greift er stilistisch auch auf traditionelle Gospel zurück,
setzt aber genauso dekonstruktivistische Elektro-Elemente ein.

Der in Montreal als Sohn haitianischer Eltern geborene Multi-Instrumentalist Jowee Omicil bringt eine afro-haitianische Perspektive in den Jazz. Omicil spielt Saxofon, Flöte, Klarinette und Harmonika.

Sein zweites Album „Love Matters!“ auf dem Label JazzVillage lebt von der Freiheit des Jazz, der Spiritualität des Gospel und dem Groove des Soul. Er macht eine Musik für Körper und Geist, in der darüber hinaus HipHop sowie Folklore vorkommen und natürlich Einflüsse von Jazzgrößen, wie Charlie Parker, Ornette Coleman oder Wayne Shorter.

Jowee Omicils Devise lautet: Jazz möge wieder populär werden.

Ob ihm das mit „Love Matters!“ gelingt, könnt ihr hier nachhören:




GHETTS machte sich mit dem Aufkommen der ersten Grime-Welle in England einen Namen. Durch stetiges Schaffen erarbeitete sich der aus East London stammende Rapper den bis heute ungebrochenen Respekt anderer Künstler. Dank einer treuen Fanbase konnte er sich einen festen Platz in der englischen Musiklandschaft sichern. Das Vertrauen auf sein Talent und seine Kreativität ermöglichte es ihm eine von Trends unabhängige Laufbahn einzuschlagen.

Mit „Ghetto Gospel: The New Testament“ erschien nun sein bislang persönlichstes Album. Einerseits hat es nichts von der Dunkelheit und dem Wettbewerbsgedanken des Grassroots-Grime verloren, besticht gleichzeitig aber durch Komplexität, Raffinesse und Weisheit. Das Album ist visuell wie auch lyrisch eine Interpretation von Ghetts´ Leben, seiner Geschichte und unserer heutigen Zeit. Es handelt von Themen wie Gleichberechtigung, weiblicher Ermächtigung, Krebs, Kriminalität und Vaterschaft.
