He's from these Streets...
This is a couple of weeks old (Like I said before just catching up from my break) taken from Blackdown and Dusk's Margin Music. Buy now at HMV. I've been trying to pin point just the experience I felt while listening through the whole album. It took so long to try to explain to myself so let me just let Black down do it for you:
Beyond the corporate finance of the City, the anodyne bars of the West End and the affluent riches out west, there is another London. Head out at sunset to the edges and just watch. Listen. As the sun drops, soon a different city emerges, a mesh of disparate groups and communities, visible but unseen, vocal - in countless vibrant accents, languages and dialects - but unheard, vital but unrecognised by the centre.
By night, the city comes alive with sound: raw slang, dialects, clanking trains, sub bass waves and rebel radio frequencies. This album is a reflection of these places, people, voices and cultures, a snapshot of the forgotten edges of a city at dusk: intense, in technicolour, in transition but forever an inspiration. Welcome to “Margins Music.”Keysound Video presents Margins Music is the debut visual feature from Blackdown and director Jonathan Howells.
It documents an audio visual journey through the margins of urban London, soundtracked by dubstep and grime from the forthcoming Dusk + Blackdown CD, "Margins Music" out August 18th 2008 on Keysound Recordings.It features grime MC Durrty Goodz, singer Farrah and a cameo from Blackdown himself and was shot on location on the edges of London, including Southall, Green Lanes, the Isle of Dogs and Edmonton.
A great composition of dubstep and grime music - seriously add this to your collection.
