Considered one of the founders of the dub scene in France, Brain Damage is back with 2020 I Pray Thee first single of the album Beyond the Blue. This brand new project in collaboration with the legendary singer Big Youth will be released on May 28. Beyond the Blue is the first album of the Jamaican singer in more than 10 years.

2020 I Pray Thee

I listen to the single !

For this first single, the opening track of the album Beyond the Blue, Brain Damage unexpectedly revisits one of the most powerful hymns of Big Youth released in 1974. A padded atmosphere, with jazz and throbbing sounds, serves here as a setting for the smashing incantations of the famous Jamaican master.

A perfect introduction to the totally new musical escape concocted by the two artists who, in the middle of the global pandemic, refuse to let themselves slip and do nothing.

Beyond the Blue, a Story in History …

… or how to condense in a sound bite, the incredible and terrible journey, experienced by Martin Nathan and his longtime friend Samuel Clayton Jr, both gone to Jamaica in March 2020, for a collaboration with the legendary Big Youth. The context of a first and unprecedented world lockdown has only left them very little time to record the takes with the famous DJ, before they both contracted the virus. Martin Nathan was lucky enough to be able to get back to France, although had to remain confined and to take care of himself alone in his studio during five weeks upon his return. Samuel Clayton Jr, however, did not come back, struck down by the disease in Kingston.

The iron determination of the producer, supported by his label Jarring Effects and the Jamaican producer Stephen Stewart, did nonetheless bring the project to completion.

For his part, one thing is certain, Big Youth is in great shape! He brilliantly signs his return with that album, made up almost exclusively of new pieces, the first in many years! In the very words of the numerous prominent musicians and singers who witnessed the takes at Anchor studios in Kingston, he has lost none of his verve: « …you still get it, man! ». Sparkling and inexhaustible, distilling an amazing variety of vocal styles, that he created himself, he recalls at once “the old days”, the golden age of Jamaican reggae in the 1960 & 70’s, performs his version somewhat conspiracist, of the sanitary crisis, evokes his faith and tells about love … while perfectly merging into each universe offered by Brain Damage.

As if we are delighted to hear the elder’s shape and inventiveness, Martin Nathan is definitely not outdone and overhauls his style once again for the occasion. Always more musical, his compositions integrate diverse influences, hitherto untapped by him, like jazz, blues, ska, rock-steady … enhanced by the wonderful and smooth horn arrangements signed by Franck Boyron and his sidekicks, Baptiste Sarat and Fred Roudet. The whole, drawing on a production that left nothing to chance, surely is a new cornerstone of Brain Damage rich discography that keeps us wondering how far it will take us anew.

Samuel Clayton Jr, however, will be deeply missed. If one can hear him regularly and clearly as samples, throughout what will remain the last album he worked on, it is above all his mindset that Martin Nathan strove to respect with that new musical and human adventure.

Brain Damage 

; brain damage; 2020 I Pray Thee: Beyond the blue

With more than 14 albums and 750+ concerts behind him already, Martin Nathan ventures for 20 years now, into many artistic and stylistic experiments, under the name of Brain Damage. Acclaimed as one of the founders of the French dub scene in the late 1990s, he soon appears as a major influence for a whole generation of musicians. But the artist is definitely not among those who forever rest on the models he founded, and he constantly reinvents himself, as his myriad projects flow, especially multiplying always more prestigious collaborations with figures like High Tone (fr), Vibronics (uk), Horace Andy (Ja), or Harrison Stafford (usa) more recently.

Along with his many productions, it is also with his truly live and explosive performances, that Martin Nathan has grown a solid reputation throughout the international scene, and itis exceptionally rare to see an artist celebrating his 20th career anniversary, with so much vitality and creativity.

Big Youth

Big.Youth; pict ; brain damage; 2020 I Pray Thee: Beyond the blue

Born in 1949, in Kington’s Trenchtown neighborhood, Manley Augustus Buchanan was among the very first artists to develop the DJ style, precursor of rap, and quickly became one of the most recognized. Eulogist of Rastafarism, he mostly focuses on social and conscious themes, what was totally new when in 1972 he stood out as the only serious rival for U Roy, creator of the genre. Whilst collaborating with nearly all greatest artistic figures of the time in Jamaica, he also constituted a major influence for Bob Marley among many. He managed as well to catch the attention of the English punk scene, in particular of Johnny Rotten (Sex Pistols / PIL), within the hype of the famous punky-reggae parties.

Nowadays still ceaselessly imitated and sampled, Big Youth or Jah Youth, as he is affectionately know in Jamaica, remains the most moving and the most popular DJ of the golden age of 1970s roots reggae.

Samuel Clayton Jr

Samuel Clayton Jr ; brain damage; 2020 I Pray Thee: Beyond the blue

Son of Samuel Clayton, who played within the legendary Jamaican ensemble Mystic Revelation of Rastafari, Sam started as railroad engineer, before dedicating himself to what will set his life direction: music in a broad sense. Significant figure as sound engineer, live and studio likewise, he worked with the greatests, from the Rolling Stones to Steel Pulse or Toots & the Maytals to name but a few, most of the time along with his longtime friend Stephen Stewart (Harry J Studio, Burning Spear…). After living in New York and in England, he settled at last in France in the 1990s. He quickly becomes an essential connection for all savvy reggae musicians there, and accompanied most of the French bands in Jamaica to live out their production and meeting fantasies, through projects with Sly & Robbie, David Hinds, Horace Andy etc… But if Sam had the address book to make these happen, he will be remembered for his ability to build bridges between cultures, however different they may be.

His outstanding capacities led him beyond Jamaican musics and he also worked with blues, jazz, gospel or soul artists ( Eric Bibb, JP Bimeni etc … ).

True man of culture and fraternity, he has remained unpredictable, as borne out by his multiple collaborations with Brain Damage he introduced to BigYouth, Kiddus I, Ras Michael, but to artists from completely different horizons as well like the Japanese Emiko Ota.

A wholehearted and rare figure. Irreplaceable.

After playing in various projects for years (Thomas Fersen, Le Peuple de l’Herbe…), Franck Boyron and Baptiste Sarat embark on the duet adventure in January 2010. They then found ArtDeko, a trombon / flugelhorn combination, two instruments of the sweet brass family. At the same time, their remarkable multi-instrumentalist talents (double bass, guitars, percussions etc … ) and their huge adaptability frequently encourage them to join other projects on an ad-hoc basis, like it notably happened on Brain Damage famous album “What you gonna do ?”.

This track is a perfect hybrid between modern and minimal techno music in the style of Richie Hawtin and the dub sound of sound systems. The sounds of TB303 deliver their resources over time to make the title more and more hypnotic and in the background a deep breath machinery and analog synthesizers, bring a mechanical side, as if the song were the sound produced by a futuristic factory. The whole supported by a sharp and unstoppable skank which like a clock ticks the title. A progressive and hypnotic track, ideal for late hour mixes. A maximal techno dub track!

In the early 1995s, after being a singer in Kaly Reggae Dub and High Tone, he was one of the founding members of the legendary Lyon group Kaly Live Dub, where he was assigned to sampler and effects. After a first side-project in 2007, Uzul is stepping up solo releases on many European labels. At the same time, he founded the breakbeat duo Hybrid Sound System. This exceptional composer with flawless musicality also creates the noise hip hop group Uzul Prod. Then, more recently 4GetMeNot, a project with a techno and UK bass aesthetic. In 2014, he joined forces with another maestro, Molécule, and formed the duo Granit for a 4 track EP.

This all-rounder with inexhaustible creativity, has been a precursor in terms of technique since its inception. Already in 1998, he was one of the first musicians to use an Atari 1040ST as well as Cubase. At the time, he bought his first sampler, associated it with this sequencer and created a live machines, a feat for the time! The memory capacity being ultra limited, he creates everything in real time, which gives him a much more lively way of playing.

The technique but not only. Uzul is also a pioneer in terms of musical aesthetics. He succumbs to the attraction of dubstep as soon as it begins to export from the London suburbs. Very quickly, he established himself as one of the rare live performers in the dubstep scene and was noticed by the cream of the overseas producers with whom he regularly shared the bill. In 2009, the prodigy Skream gave him a remix for Under Pressure, thus saluting a unique hyperactive artist.

This know-how and this head start can be found in his music as well as in his lives. Today he offers a live composed on Ableton Live which he combines with analog. The result is breathtaking, none of his lives are alike since he creates in real time.

 

Uzul‘s vinyl pre-order campaign is starting today! This is an ultra limited edition, only 150 copies are available for pre-order, reserve yours now before it’s too late! You will receive your vinyl in preview around May 15th. And as we believe in the power of music to embody and support the cultural transformation necessary for a sustainable future,this vinyle is eco-friendly*!

Jarring Fest', 25 years, Audio Activisme

This year, we are celebrating 25 years of audio-activism! Post covid, the Jarring Fest’ has been revised and corrected.

The hostilities will begin Friday, September 25 at La Rayonne, in this third cultural place of urban solidarity carried by the CCO, in the heart of the wasteland Autre Soie.

The duo Eustache McQueer will open the ball with its creation «Sissi & Luigi», taking the audience on a poetic journey between performance and concert, in an intimate and operatic universe. This will be followed by a set signed Submarine FM, during which the artist will navigate between large immersive bass and abyssal atmospheres, oscillating between minimal techno and ambient. Calling Marian will then follow his sharp tracks, hot and percussive bass tracks. Finally, this first evening ended with the master of the sound-image, Texture Droite. On the program, synthetic strings and hard rhythms for a dense, sensual and moving sound material.

Saturday, September 26th, we will set the table with a program of another style, always as vibrant!

From the beginning of the evening we will start strong with Seu Matuto, artist from Sao Paolo who will transport us in the lush jungle of the new sounds of Brazil. Then it will give way to Jouage and its hip-hop creation, propelling us on a musical journey, posing its sinuous flow to the atypical punchlines of which it has the secret. The rapper will be accompanied by DJ and beatmaker Rrobin. Adept of hip hop beat and electronic music, the artist offers a storm of sound rhythms mixing all his influences. Located between the finesse of Erykah Badu and the flow of Sampa the Great, Awori will then breathe his suave and bewitching neo-soul voice on Twani productions to propel us into an aerial electronic hip-hop universe. Considered as one of the founders of the dub scene in France, Brain Damage will prove once again its capacity to renew itself, which now appears as a link between the scene he helped to create and the new dub leaders. Multilingual and passionate about blends of cultures, Dj Carie aka La Dame will crown it all with resolutely shimmering and spicy selections.

And to extend this weekend which promises to be intense, we will meet on Thursday, October 1 at Subs, as part of the programming «First Necessities».

We will attend the exclusive live of Zero Gravity, which is none other than the electro-ambient side-project of Johann Guillon, founding member of Ez3kiel. Sonic chiaroscuro, dark and stormy atmospheres, luminous synthetic beats: Zero Gravity sweeps an emotional spectrum while contrasts.

All this beautiful program remains however only the beginning of the festivities, our anniversary will last all year 2021 and we hope to be able to offer you the continuation of the festival this spring with our foreign artists.

 

This summer, the CCO la rayonne reopen and offers a rich and varied programme. Galants Records, the hip hop label associated with Jarring Effects, opened on July 2 with an explosive Hip Hop Session. Last Saturday, we invited Dub Shepherds, Ikadub and Dub Invaders for an Apéro Dub Master Clash with sound system! This Friday, July 31, our techno label Slab Note takes its quarters in the park of La Rayonne with an explosive programming.

R R O B I N

A fan of hip hop and electronic music, Rrobin offers a storm of sound rhythms mixing all its influences. Sailing between house, grime, trap and techno, he brings out new sounds for a perfectly mastered musical shock. A devastating and contagious energy that does not leave the public unscathed.

SCHVEDRANNE

Between contemporary poetry and electronnic music, Schvédanne appears as a unique experience and a major creation plunging the dancefloor into a universe of emotions without filters, according to the burning poems of Jack Hirschman, pillar of the beat generation.

MILA DIETRICH

At the crossroads of genres and eras, Mila Dietrich likes to fiddle with sounds and tap into the scenes of different countries contaminated in their history by the electronic wave. Passing through Germany, the United States and France, the producer deliver a powerful music where techno and trance merge in a new way.

 

Dub Master Clash

This summer, the CCO La Rayonne reopen and offers a rich and varied programme.Galants Records, the hip hop label associated with Jarring Effects, opened on July 2 with an explosive Hip Hop Session. This saturday, JFX is back for  an aperitif  Dub Master Clash whith Sound system !

PROGRAM

Dub Invaders

Dub Invaders is the project of the members of High Tone, in an alternative and homemade spirit. “You get the same energy playing in sound system that you get at 90’s transgressive parties.” To the turntables for this session: Fabasstone and Aku Fen.

Dub Shepherds

Originating from Clermont-Ferrand, they could just as well come from the London underground or Jamaican studios. Using as much energy to produce their sound identity as to ignite the dance hall with their sound system, they signed in 2020 a new opus produced at the BAT Records studio.

Ikadub

It is for love of roots that the trio strives to record a maximum of accoustic instruments and to play live guitar and bass. But it is also with a terrible desire to make his listener dance that Ikadub incorporates an assumed electronic touch. A clever melange even better on live.

Today, Eustache McQueer releases his new EP Unplugged! In a haunting neo-soul and folk, the duo takes you on an introspective journey around queer culture around the world. For this occasion the singer with the inimitable voice unveils the music video of the title “Ballad Of Lake Pearl”, a moving ballad inviting to the mystical or erotic encounter.

For the release of their EP Unplugged, the duo looks back on the homophobic attack suffered by singer Joël Defrance in an LGBTQI+ meeting place, «La Perle du Lac», on the shores of Lake Geneva. His struggle to overcome this ordeal was music. Eustache McQueer recounts this struggle by transposing it into a nostalgic song articulated with lyrical parts and endowed with a rich and sharp composition of Laurent Dratler (aka Virilio, guitarist and beatmaker of the duo). To conclude this exploration of the queer cultures of the world, Eustache McQueer proposes an initiatory journey into another world, a fairy-tale wood. Here, dreams, mysteries, awareness and acceptance become one. Time literally stops. In order not to get lost in this forest, it remains only to be guided by this original folk EP.

It is always with the idea of engaging and moving his audience that the duo captures a classical guitar on one side and a raw voice, without touch-up, on the other, with musical references going up to German lieders. The subtle musicality of Laurent Dratler’s compositions accompanies the voice of Joël Defrance. A thoughtful acoustic album punctuated with stories ranging from the intimate to the collective, with songs that tell stories of plural love, revolt or wandering.

From this obvious complicity emerges a universe of cosmic and melancholy sensations, clean the queer aesthetic of Eustache McQueer. An ode to sensuality simple and free.

The album Fleury with Nicolas Repac is finally available on all digital plateform. Between music and documentary, between rap, song and poetry, a free speech released from Fleury Mérogis prison.

The artist reveals 11 titles that can be understood as sort of short films which draws up a series of original portraits. He addresses the themes of loneliness, pain of uprooting, the absence of the father, social humiliation, love and sexual misery, but also nostalgia for childhood and the dream of success.

The new album of Brain Damage, called ¡ Ya no más !  Will be released the 19th October. Martin Nathan ventures for almost 20 years now, into many artistic and stylistic experiments, under the name of Brain Damage. Alternately dark, atmospheric, aggressive or poetic, his universe seems to be constantly evolving, what may be the key to his project longevity.

This 14th album of the french producer, is against the flow as always. Between Latino tune falsely lo-fi, unlikely fusion of digital technical and centenary tradition. and a neat esthetic which spotlights raw and protesting lyrics.  All ingredients are presents for a unique album, who shows the contrast between cultural richness of a country and reality of a daily.

 

Everything start in 2016, when Brain Damage performs for the first time in Bogotá in Colombia as part of the Télérama Dub Festival. Martin Nathan meets Gatos Negros and thereafter thanks to this meeting he will meet Macky Ruff collective and La Gaitana, committed artists devote themselves to the forgotten district of Bogota and the discredited youth. A communal creation borns, and with some of atypical local artists, they make fruitful recording session.

One year later, Martin Nathan with the support of Jarring Effects Label goes back on the spot during the France-Colombia year. His idea is to lead with success the project, far to the limelight. As usual, the result is unexpected.

Today is the release of the new single of La Dame Blanche « No Da Para Na » ! First extract from her next album « Bajo El Mismo Cielo » available on Jarring Effects on May 25th !

Behind this character of La Dame Blanche, inspired by legends from around the world, also present in the Cuban Santeria, we find Yaite Ramos Rodriguez, daughter of Jesus « Aguaje » Ramos, artistic director of the Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club.

Born in Cuba, among a thousand beating drums, cradled by the boats of sound, rumba, in a family of musicians, the woman escapes quickly on her own road: classical flute, then hip hop. In Paris, where she lands and emancipates, she sings in Rumbanana, the Great Orchestra of Splendid, officiates as a singer alongside Sergent Garcia and El Hijo of Cumbia and forges her own musical language. In her creations, spirits surround her, show her the way – the ancestors, the orishas. These supernatural powers, with powerful vibrations, accompany her on stage, in her touring around the world.

« In hip hop, I feel free of any technique, freed from imposed structures: you go to the end of your sentence, without asking yourself ten thousand questions, you go, with all your personality. I like this excess of speech, this excess of music, which fills and completes me … «

They are an essential iconic figure of a specific European underground world, Apostle of a sensible “Do It Yourself”, engaged and yet often without any lyrics, The band High Tone has managed to build its own special role, patiently, wisely, whilst staying permanently connected to their public and their roots, starting from Dub music, to then create their own universe, wide and complex, opened to collaborations and always accessible to all.

Tinted with an Ethno-dub color in its early stages, High Tone has developed its way of making music as much as its influences, becoming in turn an inspiring figure, borrowing from Dubstep music before the name even existed and becoming part of what we call today Bass Music, to sum up the different relationships which combine Drum and bass, Dub music, Glitch hop and other adventurous roads taken by this band, never at rest and always anchored in the Present, always vigilant, always searching.

High Tone "Remixed - Dub to Dub"
High Tone

This year, High tone celebrates its 20th birthday ! For his birthday, the crew opened his repertoire to 12 artists of the new Dub Generation : Adi Shankara – Alpha Steppa – Dub Engine – Full Dub – Jacin – Mahom dub – Mayd Hubb – Ondubground – Panda Dub – Radikal Guru – Rakoon – Tetra Hydro K
With the participation of Martin Campbel, Pupajim and Shanti D ! The result High Tone – Dub to Dub offers 12 tracks of the band in Dub Remix version ! The compilation will be released for free download on the net label ODGProd on November 7, 2017.

After three long years of absence, French dub bosses are back on stage for the Telerama Dub Festival. The band prepare us an exclusive live, a special creation with guests of the brand at the microphone. So to accompany the crew on stage nothing less than Lady Chann, Shanti D, and Omar Perry ! Rendez-vous is taken for the 25th November at the Docks de Paris for the Telerama Dub Festival # 15.

Essential players on the European underground scene, High Tone has progressively created its own unique musical identity by staying close to their roots and to their core audience. Remaining open to many collaborations, they have built their own universe around the very concept of Dub music in its vast complexity. Initially labeled « ethno-dub », High Tone’s influences and sound evolved, in diverse ways – using Dubstep elements before the term was even created for instance – and they quickly became one of the main players in the Bass Music scene, a movement reuniting various schools of sound such as drum&bass, dub, glitch hop and other adventurous soundscapes that High Tone was never afraid to explore and dissect.

Brain Damage and Harrison Stafford (Groundation) unveil their long awaited album Liberation Time today !

A superb opus that can be heard in a loop CULTURE DUB

To gain some grasp of the genesis of this new project, that may seem surprising at first, let’s address what both artists have in common, rather that what differentiates them. Internationally recognized masters in the styles, respectively reggae & dub, that they are developing in parallel for almost 20 years, without never really meeting each other, the two protagonists strive to challenge their codes in an ever greater respect to their Jamaican roots: two decades furthering a relentless fight against musical orthodoxy, to the benefit of interbreedings that have always been major contributions to music — and arts in general — History. This is evidenced by jazz and Jamaican traditional music fusion in the case of Harrison Stafford, and notably with his amazing adventure with Groundation, as well as by Martin Nathan countless experimentations, over Brain Damage prolific discography, always digging in more unlikely and audacious directions.

From this unexpected collaboration will stem « Liberation Time » album, an LP that will delight many fans of the two artists’ works, all what builds their respective uniqueness being there so well intricated. Harrison Stafford unique voice supports, in a most elegant way, the delivery of a uniting message focused on self-empowerment through music and his universalist vision of Rastafarian faith. Brain Damage writing and production, on the other hand, appear always more subtle and personal, intellectualized yet visceral. Solid compositions, hit melodies and classy dub effects are among assets that will undoubtedly confirm « Liberation Time » as one of the most accomplished collaboration project of this year.
