Kwaito: Urban music from South Africa

Category: , , By brockolio



















I was browsing through Fact Magazine this afternoon and came to find they had recently written up an article about South Africa's kwaito music movement, which has come into the limelight recently thanks to Warp Records signing and releasing DJ Mujava's anthem 'Township Funk.' Kwaito relies on stripped down house-friendly melodies over disrupted, broken beat tribal rhythms as it's base and DJs around the world are starting to take notice. A highlight of our recent trip to Seattle's Decibel Festival was the tandem of Michael Mayer and Superpitcher throwing down their own unique 'Township Funk' remix. You can also hear Stenchman's dubstep remix of the tune HERE as well as L-Vis1990's kwaito dub remix of the track HERE.

Here is an except from the Fact Magazine article 'Kwaito invasion?' Full article text can be found HERE at the FactMagazine website. Great Read:

"In a car park amid Pretoria's high-rise housing, I'm watching something special unfold: a DJ has set up on a table, and as he puts on a record by Mujava , all kinds of people drift over and drop what they're doing to dance. It's a fairly amazing sight: they twist their torsos and arms as if trying to squeeze through a tennis racket. They can make their legs turn to rubber at will. The music is even more interesting: with loping snares hitting anywhere but on the beat and a springy shuffle, as if roughly hacked from concrete and metal, the track is familiar to everyone from taxi journeys.

It's time to come clean, though: I've never been to South Africa, I'm just watching the video for 'Township Funk' and it's pretty obvious the above scenario is staged. Thanks to a release in the UK by This Is Music, it's first record in a while I've seen anyone run to a DJ to find out about. Even in a climate that rapidly adopts, processes and recycles other countries' dance music, the attention that 'Township Funk' has been getting is remarkable.

So why are people giving it attention? Partly it must be down to rhythmic novelty: against all the house and techno wallpaper, it's fun to hear the neat grid set down by disco disrupted by beats from other lineages. Mujava, who claims not to have any other influences, simply calls his music "house with an African beat". But in South Africa house isn't particularly distinct from other urban music, known overall as kwaito. Samkelo Ngwenya of kwaito.co.uk – a London-based website dedicated to increasing this music's audience – explains that dancehall, ragga and hip-hop are huge influences on South African artists. It trickles down to Mujava's end of the spectrum, which is usually specifically called mzansi.

Something else that might occur to electronic music fans is the similarity Mujava's sound bears to early nineties 'bleep 'n' bass' from Sheffield and Leeds [something you can read more about in Simon Reynolds' FACT primer]. It's another comparison Mujava seems uninterested in, offering only the following: "I love any type of music. Elements [of bleep] are similar to mine, which proves that music is the international language we all use to express ourselves." And in case you wondered, he doesn't use any of the same out-of-date music-making boxes, listing his equipment as "a PC with music software".

the Bug & Warrior Queen on XLR8Rtv

Category: , , , By brockolio



On his new album, London Zoo, Kevin Martin (a.k.a. The Bug) retooled dubstep and dancehall into something bleak, apocalyptic, and jaw-dropping. His gritty, bass-heavy assault on the future is helmed by an all-star squad of MCs, from Flowdan and The Spaceape to his current touring partner Warrior Queen. Here, The Bug and Warrior Queen talk about their flow, both on and offstage—how she's a split personality while The Bug will always remain The Bug.

Dj Coupé - Mahamantra Dub aka Gift For Krsna

Category: , , By coupe1




I don't wanna usurp Brock's just recently posted items but here's a dubstep track for all you heads. I usually just set it as a final track but it speeds up to 180bpm in the end so if you so wish you can mix it with some rough and tough ragga jungle, not enough time to build up mainstream dnb.

Headhunter: Nomad review

Category: , , , By brockolio


















Tempa strikes again, this time with the debut LP release from producer Headhunter entitled 'Nomad'. Hailing from Bristol, Headhunter continues to push the limits of what the term 'dubstep' represents. In the past two years, producers in the scene have begun the amalgamation of dubstep and techno, pushing both genres into some uncharted and unfamiliar territory. At the head of this movement, Headhunter, along with Martyn, Appleblim, Shackleton, and 2562, have helped to attract techno enthusiasts to their sound, while also rejuvenating and reinventing the genre as a whole.

The aptly titled 'Nomad' is a tribute to the fact that each track on the album was recorded at a different location around the globe. The opening track 'Lifeform' sets the tone and mood for the album immediately, as it's breathing synthesizers and beating and pulsating drums evoke the imagery of an organic and evolving entity, within a dark and mechanical world. Another standout cut is 'Prototype' a track fit for a Hunter S. Thompson psychadelic fueled road-trip, complete with Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas vocal samples overlaying it's mutating rhythm. 'Physics Impulse' is another tune that sets itself apart from most of the album. A more traditional sounding wobble-heavy dubstep tune at first, it then lends it's space into the psychadelic and fading synth-lines that patiently weave in and out of it's intricate drum patterns. 'Nomad' showcases Headhunter's techno influences and roots while still staying true to the rolling sub-bass core of dubstep. Fans of Peverelist and Appleblim should look no further than this album to add to the collection, although in a year with debut LP releases from the likes of Scuba, Ital Tek, and 2562; this one will perhaps be overlooked by some...Don't be one of 'em!

You can preview 'Nomad' as well as order the album on CD or Vinyl HERE through Boomkat.

RIP: Alton Ellis (1938-2008)

Army of Dub- Alton Ellis vs. Kromestar (Luisao bootleg)


via the BBC:

"12 October 2008 - Reggae singer Alton Ellis died of cancer in a London hospital at the age of 70 on Friday 9 October 2008.

Tributes have been pouring into the Jamaican singer's MySpace site, many commenting on how Ellis' music will 'live forever'.

Alton Ellis moved to Britain in the 1970s and became known as the 'Godfather of rocksteady' with a string of hits including I'm Still In Love, Dance Crasher and I'm Just A Guy.

His manager and agent Trish De Rosa, of Roots-Rockers Promotions, said he was a prolific artist and a key figure in the history of Jamaican music: "He has been my guiding star and my inspiration from the moment I met him," she said.

"His life was the music and the stage. He was getting a tremendous amount of work right up to the end - it was very difficult to get him to slow down. He wanted to do as much as he could and leave a strong legacy."

De Rosa added that the Jamaican authorities were considering giving Ellis a state funeral.

Ellis was diagnosed with multiple myeloma last year, underwent chemotherapy and returned to the stage before he collapsed during his final performance in central London in August.

Laurence Cane-Honeysett, Jamaican music consultant for Trojan Records, said the label had been associated with Ellis throughout his career and that he was a pleasure to deal with: "He was a genuinely lovely man and his songs were heartfelt," he said.

"He was a seminal figure in terms of popularising Jamaican reggae music. His death is a terrible loss."

The sweetest in the reggae world - Delroy Williams


Jamaican reggae singer Delroy Williams, who had been friends with Ellis and worked with him since the 1960s said, described his voice as "the sweetest in the reggae world".

Ellis began his career in the late 1950s, before Jamaican music had earned a worldwide following, and recorded for many local producers before launching his own All-tone label.

He had several hits while fronting the vocal group The Flames and many more as a solo artist. Ellis moved to Canada and then to London in the 1970s as his career went into decline.

He enjoyed renewed popularity in the last 15 years thanks to a rocksteady trend in Jamaica and Europe.

Ellis, who lived in Northolt, Middlesex, leaves more than 20 children."

The Month In Grime/Dubstep... [October ]

Category: , , , , By brockolio





























The Month In: Grime / Dubstep
The Month In by Martin Clark
for Pitchfork

Meet Zomby, last seen exploring the badland territories beyond grime, dubstep, garage, rave, dubstep, bassline, or kuduro. He describes his M.O. as like a confused pirate on a sonic treasure hunt, who "only has half the map" but keeps "finding 'X's." On this year's output, he's going to be one infamous pirate. Whether he's fallen off the edge of the flat earth is entirely another matter.

Zomby first appeared on dubstep's radar in 2005 with ragga bouncer "Spliff Dub", though in fairness he'd been raving and DJing for many years before. Also from that era, "Memories" evoked imagery of raves long since gone, yet it was the 12"s on Hyperdub and Ramp in 2008 that signalled he'd found a few "X's" and located himself somewhere fresh and new. Download his mix for Radio 1 HERE.

Take for example his explanation of how he built recent track "Aquafre5h": It gives you a glimpse into his mindstate and the sounds he's chasing. "I sampled some Pharrell bits'n'bobs and a Mario NES game I sampled and processed so all elements of the song are correct...I've been working with a custom palette of sound for a while now. I suppose these songs are the result of that and great skunk."

However it was created, Zomby's music has found fans in many of the current sonic pioneers of new directions, like Jamie Vex'd, Starkey, Darkstar, and even Burial. Yet Zomby's sound is most impressive when its effect on regular listeners is observed. While other producers can generate impact or momentum, Zomby dubs tend to induce a unique mix of shock or confusion; a stunned sense of "what the…?" Recent beats "Gloop", "Parrot Stew", and "Aquafre5h" feature mutating bottom ends, unstable and chaotic bass bubbles that seem to emit gasses like some primordial soup. And while Zomby's sound regularly travels into other moods, these mutating aquabass tracks are by themselves alone good enough to warrant acclaim.

"Garage is my wife. I cheated on her a couple of times but wholly regret it," he explains in interview. "Darker garage was more the sound I was planning to work with but grime was also a massive part of the jigsaw for me. Eski and dubstep really went hand in hand for me. I didn't see any difference in the style only the sounds used so I got really interested in transposing styles. Like negative imprints of other peoples beats that would be called on genre or style and then having sounds transposed would lift it into another…"

Other massive influences on the Zomby sound are rave, hip hop/crunk, house and kuduro and in this he's found kinship with acts like Darkstar, Rustie or Joker. But despite moving in similar orbits, Zomby still remains alone, isolated on his own trajectory, spending nights in on the 'net consuming music old and new on YouTube, mentally recyling it through a skunk filter and rebuilding it, wrongly but oh so right.

"It's not so much a new direction," he says of his sound, "it's just about writing real songs or tracks that are justified in more than one sense. Nothing novelty or formed for its own sake is really doing it anymore. Every element has to be looked at and analyzed and really it's a state of minimizing to move forward, when you've worked out how to refine what you do you can turn the taps on as such. I think that's what's started to come through now."

In interview, Zomby bares more than a few traits in common with Burial. Both are fiercely passionate about their own music, hark back to the spirit of rave for inspiration and produce fragile, unpolished but startlingly original music. It's little surprise then that Zomby declares himself Burial's number one fan, while his new side project, a throwback-to-'91 rave album on Werk is sure to appeal to fans of Burial's influences.

Judging by interviews, so much of Burial's inspiration is the bittersweet memories of raves now long since extinct, and as Zomby expounds his passion for the era, all his influences-- hip-hop, garage, dubstep, jungle, rave, kuduro, grime-- seem to coalesce into one coherent whole, now facilitated by the vast visibility of music on the 'net and bathed in the fading afterglow of hardcore. Perhaps every "what-the?" moment he creates in new listeners' brains is just a by-product of his own urge to forever re-create that first rave-rush again in his own.

"I get those rushes now man," he explains. "The songs I like make my hairs stand on end. That's when I know the song is a winner. For me there's not gonna be enough time in my life to devour all the music I want so the real rush I'm searching for I'm probably never gonna find. Eskimo was a rush. Crunk's been a bit of a rush. For me its forward ahead at full speed really. I'm not looking to bring something back. It's more just my vibe I carry through the music. It's the vibe that's gone now. It's totally gone now but I remember it. That's the thing that inspires me. I write from that place."

Out of the glare of critical hype, grime continues to flourish. If the mixtape era allowed MCs to grow as artists and build independent fanbases away from the demands and constraints of major label deals, 2008 is the year grime began to return to the mass market spotlight and hence to the majors, yet on its own terms. Long after it was critically written off, perhaps grime is becoming it's own form of British urban pop. There are signs of activity and organization amongst A-list MCs, most of whom were on stage with Kano at the O2's Indigo club last week.

The main message that the Indigo gig gave out is that grime acts, even self-funded or independently signed ones, can fill major venues. Kano's return from his major-funded deal has seen a flourish of energy by the MC, making himself massively visible both in the grime scene and on social media sites. Independent and using MySpace, Blogger, YouTube, Facebook and Bebo to great effect, not to mention conventional radio, he appears twice as visible to grime fans than when he was backed by a massive label. Musically it's the same old Kano flow, just minus the commercial touches big labels require, like Craig David duets.

The guests he did choose to share the stage with speak volumes about both his album 140 Grime Street and where Kano really is at musically. Skepta, someone who needs no introduction in the DIY-street hype-self-funded stakes, came blazing on stage in a white silk dressing gown. If not pantomime, it was certainly pure energy. And he got Wiley to turn up.

Yet few bars got more crowd response than Ghetto's. Word is he has a few album deals on the table, as you might expect from a man who's made not just the year's hottest tune, "Sing for Me", but the now obligatory, chart-friendly electro version, which he performed at Indigo too. Check the video with its entertaining visual twist. Ghetts also features on Wretch 32's forthcoming single "Ina De Ghetto", mentioned last month but increasing in hype as the year goes on. Add in Wiley's warm but powerful "Where's My Brother" and the momentum for grime keeps building. Durrty Goodz is quietly building a massive fresh catalogue to unleash. JME tours this month-- something fairly unheard of in grime-- playing the rock venue the Scala this Friday. Chipmunk, one of the few youngers to really get his professional game going up and beyond the core grime scene, has come in strong with his new single "Beast" which sounds like it could cross over, despite or in fact probably thanks also to the terrible guitar solo/cackling breakdown at the end.

Grime remains most vital, most exciting when it's dark, complex and raw, so tracks like Trim's "Pram" and DVA's "Bullet A Go Fly [ft. Badness, Riko, Flowdan and Killa P]" would still shine in any month. Equally exiting underground sounds are Jammer's "Leave Me Alone" and P Money's new mixtape. But it's also great to see grime acts breaking through the music industry's glass ceiling, getting organized, working with, not against, the business' machinery so it can bring its music through on it's own terms. Speaking on Logan's show, Roll Deep described how they seem to be allowed to play venues in London again, something the authorities have quietly blocked for them in the past and other acts. Target described the music industry's attitude to them as "wary" and how they were having to "break stereotypes" to promote their new (independently funded) album. This seems all the more crazy if you think it was over five years ago that ex-Roll Deep member Dizzee won the Mercury Prize. Like Dylan Mills, Roll Deep have had to soften their sound to find commercial appeal, but at least their voice is beginning to be heard beyond the confines of their own community. After all why have Addicted to Bass when you can have Goldie's "Timeless"?

Decibel 2008 Review

Category: , , , , By brockolio




























Last weekend, electronic music talent from around the world all converged on the city of Seattle for the 5th year of the Decibel Festival. Featuring music from all ends of the electronic spectrum; from Ambient to Techno, IDM to Dubstep, Downtempo to House, and everything in between; the city came alive with beats from every which direction. We arrived to Volunteer Park in Seattle early Saturday afternoon for the festival's first ever dB in The Park event, a free outdoor event featuring music from Jacob London, Truckasaurus, and LA's Glitch Mob. We arrived at the end of London's set, and as we settled in, began to hear the chiptune anthems of Seattle's Truckasaurus. Clad with gold-plated Nintendo cartridge bling, the trio played an awesome set incorporating their 8-bit sound into tracks ranging from hip hop to downtempo.



Next up on the stage on an unprecedented sunny afternoon in Seattle was the Glitch Mob. Bringing their brand of glitch-hop and hyphy music, they brought the most energy felt in the park all day with their remix of Matty G's dubstep tune 'West Coast Rocks' complete with classic west coast hip hop vocals overlaying the beats. They also dropped a big albeit shallow remix of Lil Wayne's hit 'Lollipop' which also got the crowd moving their feet.



After their set, it was time to get ready for the evening's festivities which entailed the Ghostly International showcase at the Baltic Room Saturday Night. As the line to get in stretched long around the block, Deru hopped onstage and played some of the more upbeat sounding tracks on the night. After Deru, it was Tycho's turn as he debuted his first Audio/Visual set to the eager crowd. Beautiful blended and layered imagery as well as kaleidoscopic patterns were a perfect backdrop for Tycho's sound. Next up on the bill was another hometown favorite, Lusine; who's set spanned much more territory than strictly downtempo. Complete with analog visuals being manned from the back of the club with film reels and a dual projector, Lusine brought the house down and had the crowd aching for more long after his set was finished.

Sunday night provided the finale showcase for Decibel 2008 at Neumo's. On the bill were Fax (MEX), Flying Lotus (US), The Bug (UK) and Supermayer (DE). We arrived at the start of Flying Lotus' set and immediately you could feel his excitement performing spreading throughout the nearly sold out crowd. Putting his signature glitch stop-start touch and Michael Jordan-esque tongue hanging, FlyLo played one of the best sets I heard all weekend; the highlight being his blend of Rustie's 'Spliff Dub' remix seemlessly into Kode9's epic '9 Samurai.'



Next up was a set from the UK's The Bug. The Bug started his set off solo, dropping familiar dubstep tunes including one of the big single's off of London Zoo 'Skeng', Distance's 'Victim Support', as well as Dizzee Rascal's classic 'I Love You.' After about 20 minutes solo, The Bug was then joined by one of my personal favorite MCs the ineffable Warrior Queen. The energy level noticably kicked up once Warrior Queen hit the stage rapping over her London Zoo cuts including 'Poison Dart' and 'Angry' taking over the vocals of Tippa Irie on the latter. She also treated us to a solo track of hers entitled 'Things Change' released on Soul Jazz and produced by The Heatwave.



There could be no more appropriate a closer to the Finale of decibel than the tag-team set of Kompakt's Michael Mayer and Superpitcher. Playing the most dance-friendly set I witnessed at Decibel, Supermayer tore up the Neumo's floor until the lights were forcibly turned on to end the show. A highlight of their set was their intricate reworking of DJ Mujava's African ghetto-house banger 'Township Funk.'



All around an amazing weekend that made me proud to be a resident of the PacNW. Out to the Decibel crew that made this event happen and here's to next year being even bigger and badder.

rahspect!
