La Dame Blanche album artwork
La Dame Blanche new album

La Dame Blanche reveals her new album « Bajo El Mismo Cielo » today.
An album of connections, an explosive mix of cumbia, hip-hop and latin beats !

Before releasing this album to the world, Yaite (aka La Dame Blanche) sheds light on the path she pursues : « With Marc Damblé, aka Babylotion, my producer, we continue to explore these universes that always intrigue us so much ». Yaite, however, stays on course, for this third opus : less flute, more hip hop. La Dame Blanche explains : « I find there a freedom, which I don’t meet in any other style »

Freedom doesn’t stops her from working and from the fierce desire to improve her flow. Yaite says : « I find as and when how to place my voice on an interesting rhythm, to find my own vocal style. During my tours, I met MCs that I love, like Rincon Sapiência in Brazil. Their flows inspire me !» And words take rhythm in her body.

« At first, you write a simple poetry. Then naturally, very organically, the text begins to dance, to deliver its rhythmic through your mouth, your body … »

Organically, naturally : the freedom that hip hop brings her also delivers her soul. In her lyrics, she sings the story of her mom’s neighbor and her tragic fate (Ave Maria), describes people with personality disorders (Dos Caras), or a woman with an exhausted body (No da para na ‘ ) …But above all, for the first time, she speaks about herself. « Before, I wrote about my ancestors, my neighbors, my friends. Today, in this personal record, I tell more about myself », she says. Yaite also admits she has « lowered the guard » and wanted to offer a less « aggressive » record.

This quest for intimacy may be explained by the tight team around this musical creation. If the previous record called for plenty of producers, « Bajo El Mismo Cielo » was made in a limited clan, around the duo Yaite-Babylotion.

If the album turns out more coherent in terms of sound, it is also adorned with different colors, with rich featurings. (Nelson Palacios, Rincon Sapiência, Philippe Cohen-Solal, Manteiga, Aero Manyelo)

« I love featurings : the interpretation of my songs by other people, and these moments of conviviality, meeting around my music »

Bajo El Mismo Cielo imposes itself as a big party where humans are welcome, but also spirits, as Yaite says : « I will never detach myself from them. In each song, a sentence comes from my divinatory cards. The character of La Dame Blanche doesn’t let me go either: I do everything to keep her with me ». She concludes : « For me, it’s a record filled with hope : freed from aggression, but fed with strength, energy and power. »

This new opus is available now !

artwork yeah but no remix

Jarring Effects Label and Sinnbus Records are proud to present the Premiere of « Yeah But No – Sand (Mudaze Remix) »

What about Yeah But No ? Yeah But No from Berlin released their self-titled debut album in November, accompanied by a couple of singles and EPs. After touring on their own and as support for Sylvan Esso and Zoot Woman, another extensive tour segment is due to begin in the May 2018.
Merging electronic music with classic song structures into a smart and captivating listening enjoyment. That’s Yeah But No’s objective. The duo from Berlin is comprised of techno producer Douglas Greed and singer Fabian Kuss. The former made a name for himself in the techno scene and recently released an album together with Mooryc with their mutual project Eating Snow.

 

The two get to know each other four years ago when Greed was looking for a singer for his tracks. Tasteful success label Freude am Tanzen releases his music during that time and he tours through Europe, plays in Mexico and Australia. In Fabian Kuss he finds the matching counterpart. Not only has he studied voice but also stood on stages all across the country and explored musical styles from jazz to funk and pop with his bands.

 

Now Yeah But No announce the release of « Remixes I », one of two EPs containing contributions by friends made along the way, and artists Yeah But No became friends and fans of. Karmon (Diynamic), Daniel Brandt (Erased Tapes, Brandt Brauer Frick etc.), Marc Holstege (Stil vor Talent), Panthera Krause (Uncanny Valley, Riotvan, ORS etc.), and Mudaze (Beast Entertainment) promise a good round of tasteful listening pleasure.

 

 

Yeah But No are currently working on the tracks of their second album, which will be released in November 2018

Brain Damage Meets Harrison Stafford

Brain Damage and Harrison Stafford (Groundation) will unveil their album Liberation Time on October 20th. Today we reveal the artwork of one of the most anticipated albums of the year, directed by Ben Hito !

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.

With more than 11 albums behind him, Martin Nathan ventures into many artistic and stylistic experiments, under the name of Brain Damage. He has spent 15 years alternating between his solo project and music collaborations in order to establish the roots of his musical art. His friendship with Samuel Clayton Jr, sound engineer and internationally recognized producer (Steel Pulse / Toots & the Maytals) opened the door of the legendary Harry J Studio (Bob Marley / Burning Spear), and offered him the opportunity to attend some interesting meetings and to work, during unforgettable studio sessions in Kingston, with legends such as Horace Andy, Kiddus I, Willi Williams, Winston McAnuff and Ras Michael.
Everyone single one of them was able to travel to the musical universe suggested by Brain Damage, and was able to follow the style suggested by the artist. Thus, they wrote the majority of their songs about their infancy, childhood, youth, and education. The result of this collaboration is unique. It is a mixture of maturity and freshness probably due to the openness and talent of each protagonist. The dub/reggae album « Walk the Walk » came out on October 16th on Jarring Effects.
Here is this opus genesis : discover now Walk the Walk’s legends on video!

The director Wasaru joined him during his journey in Jamaica. This was a great opportunity for him not only to create and artistic work but also to hear these legends narrate their childhood memories. It had a heritage value. In this 8 episodes of the web series « Walk the Walk » we can find a photo of the 60s and 70s Jamaican life, anecdotes about the different characters, mythical events of the island (Bob Marley, Tosh Pete) and intimate confessions.
