Tatham, Mensah, Lord & Ranks - New on 2000 Black




Brand new collaboration from Kaidi Tatham, Akwasi Mensah, Matt Lord & Dego Ranks for Dego's 2000 Black label. Mr Pickles is the first track to be lifted from the forthcoming album due for release on November 5th. The single is available HERE as a digital download and features two bonus tracks that won't be on the album 'Teacup' ft Eric Lau and 'Margerie'.

Musical families always evolves along unusual paths. The synergy thats brings people together can be places, circumstance, school, college, family etc. In the case of Tatham, Mensah, Lord and Ranks the unifying force has always been the love of music. Having worked together in different configurations since the late 90's this musical collective has grown stronger through separate projects coming together to enjoy the process and results of creating music.

In 2010, although based in different countries, the 4 musicians/producers met up in London and began the first of four recording sessions lasting over a week of almost continuous music. Revolving seats at keyboard stations, drum kits, percussion, programming and more created a stream of music connected only by the sense of joy. With a history that stretches from the structured worlds of sound systems and national orchestra's to the chaos of night clubs and blues dances and palm wine guitar TMLR have always drawn from a wide range of influences.

Kaidi Tatham, Mr Mensah, Matt Lord and Dego Ranks have provided a link between their many musical worlds. Vintage analog synthesizers blend with traditional Brazilian, Cuban, Ghanain, Jamaican rhythms to create a soundtrack to a new age. Electronic drums and synths blend with flutes and acoustic guitars for another journey through these cosmopolitan worlds. The sounds bursting into a new musical territory through timeless exploration.

New Flying Lotus album due out in October 2012




Flying Lotus has scheduled the release of 'Until The Quiet Comes', the long awaited follow-up to 2010's Cosmogramma and his third on Warp Records, for a worldwide release on October 1st/2nd.
Composed, according to Flying Lotus, as “a collage of mystical states, dreams, sleep and lullabies”, Until the Quiet Comes has the distinct feel of this nocturnal trip. From the twitching descent into a subconscious state and the out-of-focus time-ether of the journey that follows, the sound is an unhinged, yet elegant evolution of the melodic and rhythmic interplay that is woven into the DNA of Flying Lotus’ aural personae.

All this stylistic mingling and genre-melting has contributed significantly to shift music in a direction that makes intellectual leaps without forsaking the all-important heft of a bassline or unimpeded ‘swing’ of a drum beat – the same way so many masters of soul music have infused their songs for lovers and dancers with brilliant and heady subtext for decades. Until The Quiet Comes follows this tradition while clearing a path distinctly it’s own, which is a mark of a classic.

The album, featuring guests Erykah Badu, Laura Darlington, Niki Randa, Thundercat & Thom Yorke, is set for release on October 1 (2 in N. America), 2012 on Warp Records.

Check this track 'See Thru To U' with Erykah Badu HERE
