Silhouette Brown To Release New Album, Two

silhouette

Silhouette Brown‘s self-titled debut was greatly received and seemed to fill a gap in the soul underground, so 5 years is a long time to wait for a follow-up. But as they say, good things come to those who wait. The production & song writing team that is Silhouette Brown consists of Bembe Segue, Kaidi Tatham and Dego. This time around they are joined by a new vocalist the unmistakable sound of Philadelphia’s Lady Alma. Lady Alma has appeared on countless club classics over the years from Sylk 130’s “When the Funk Hits the Fan” to Soul Dahmma’s “Happy” and 4hero’s “Hold it Down”.

Two will be released on February 9, 2010 on 2000black Records.

Tricky’s Knowle West Boy Remixed by South Rakkas Crew

Print
Tricky Meets South Rakkas Crew comes out today, a version excursion of ten tracks from Tricky‘s Knowle West Boy, where electro-dancehall collides with Tricky’s whispering ‘sprechgesang’ lyrical style to create a dancehall filler, radio killer, soundtrack thriller that seems to touch on all the happening urban sounds from around the globe. We’re talking hip-hop, reggae and rock inna dubstep dancehall style that’s left-of-center pop for the 21st century. As Tricky says: “We come in peace and leave you in pieces.”
