GOB, the debut album from London-based rapper DELS is out today. To celebrate, here’s the video for ‘Shapeshift’.
Big Boi’s amazing 2010 record Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty is the gift that keeps on giving and the comic book inspired video ‘Be Still’ is evidence of just that. Previously Big Boi and Janelle Monae have collaborated on the brilliant ‘Tightrope’ one of the highlights from last years excellent The Archandroid by Monae but this jazzy little number is just as good!
The record will be called Within and Without and if laidback, sunset, hazey album track ‘You And I’ (featuring Caroline Polachek of Brooklyn, NY electronic band Chairlift) is anything to go by, Greene’s lo-fi, chillwave tones are set to soundtrack the summer.
In hot anticipation of his new album release, I caught up with the nation’s favourite wonky dance DJ and producer, Kissy Sell Out, to see what he had to say for himself.
Hi, thanks for coming to say hi! Talk us through your new album, are you still the Mad Hatter of dance music or has your style changed for your second LP?
I feel like the Mad Hatter Mk 2.0 now I think! A bit wiser, a bit more confident and a bit more mischievous! Wild Romance feels like the album I was put on this earth to make.
I’ve got the advantage of four years experience in the game this time around and hosting the craziest radio show in dance music has acted like the practice sessions for this new LP. It means that amongst the far-out ideas and huge basslines on this album there’s a strong sense of identity that I think my previous music hasn’t achieved before.
