“Mapema” is a Swahili word that means “early “. “Mapema very fast” is a Sheng/ slang (Swahili-english) idiom that was popularized by Kenyan vintage stylist Diman Mkare, and is a phrase that is popular among the youths. The phrase “Mapema very fast”, can be used in many ways. It can be used to express a feeling of happiness , fulfilment , disbelief & affirmation. The term can also be used to give instructions or command. In its daily usage the meaning of the phrase can adapt to any of the mentioned meanings depending on the context and the situation. As a way of celebrating Kenyan urban culture and telling Kenyan stories through Music and Dance, MATATA created this song to appreciate Sheng ,which even though is not an official language it’s widely spoken, especially by the youth.

Mungo's Hi Fi x Marina P - Soma

The history of reggae music is populated with unusual cover versions. If a well loved tune can work to a reggae beat, then it’s fair game, wherever it’s from. The latest in a long line of innovative reworkings is the new single from Scotland’s Mungo’s Hi Fi and Italian-born, Paris-based singer Marina P. It’s a haunting, dreamy rocksteady interpretation of American group Smashing Pumpkins’ psychedelic masterpiece Soma. The result is a glove-like fit of skanking rhythm and soaring melody so inspired that it’s a wonder no one’s thought of it before. Soma comes from Mungo’s and Marina’s musically diverse new album, Soul Radio. It combines Marina’s sultry 21st century ska and rocksteady bangers, with soul, jazz and trip hop moments. Soma is the ancient Greek word for “body” and the name for a mythical mind altering substance in novelist Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. Marina P and Mungo’s Hi Fi’s Soma stimulates the body and the mind in a much healthier way... Video edit by Benjamin Denfert and Marina P Label: Scotch Bonnet Records Release date: 10/07/2020

Yorkston/Thorne/Khan - Sukhe Phool (Max Cooper Firefly Remix) (Official Audio)

Yorkston/Thorne/Khan - "Sukhe Phool (Max Cooper Firefly Remix)", out now on Domino Record Co Subscribe to Domino Record Co on YouTube: Stream & Save "Sukhe Phool (Max Cooper Firefly Remix)": At the start of the year, Yorkston/Thorne/Khan released their brilliant third album Navarasa : Nine Emotions. At the heart of the album was the subcontinent’s navarasa; the nine (nava) emotions or sentiments (rasa) of the arts. This central unifying underpinning is a centuries-old organising principle and on their upcoming record, YTK (James Yorkston, Jon Thorne and Suhail Khan) have paired each song to one of these emotions. “Sukhe Phool”, the album’s opening track, correlates to the emotion karuna (sorrow), and today, YTK are pleased to share a Max Cooper remix of the song. James Yorkston has previously worked with the Northern Irish producer and artist on Cooper’s 2019 album Yearning For The Infinite and the remix was bourne out of that relationship. Cooper extends “Sukhe Phool” into a nine-minute piece of ambient techno that is grounded by the mesmerising vocals of Khan and Yorkston. The remix comes alongside a hypnotic visualiser directed by artist Morgan Beringer. Max Cooper says of his remix: “The name of the original piece of music refers to dead or dying flowers, and the lyrics from Suhail reference the separation of soul mates, which Morgan Beringer has captured beautifully in his psychedelic story of melting growth and decay. I apologise for brutalising this beautiful original piece of music with heavy kicks, though. Somehow it just called out to me and said it needed a 90's chord driven techno rework. It reminded me of my days as resident DJ in Nottingham where I had my techno education, and the sorts of things we used to play for our closing sets when people still needed their pounding kicks, but were also in need of some harmony.” Directed by Morgan Beringer Follow Yorkston Thorne Khan: Facebook: Twitter: Follow Domino Record Co: YouTube: Website: Facebook: Twitter: Instagram:

Swarm - A McGloughlin Brothers Film / Music by Max Cooper

► Subscribe: ► Sign up & join Discord: Stream 'Swarm' here: Directed By The McGloughlin Brothers Music and Sound Design By Max Cooper Animation / Camera / Edit By The McGloughlin Brothers Fluid Art By Roman Hill, Thomas Blanchard & Oilhack Drone Photography By Colm Hogan Special Thanks to Léa Morel, Paul Mignot, Brendan Canty & Greenlight Films. McGloughlin Brothers Development and destruction seem to go hand in hand when it comes to human progress on earth. There is a celebration of the human ability to create sophisticated environments in which we inhabit, but also a concern at the price that we are paying for this. Feeling alien is easy here. Max Cooper This project was something special for me. Two of my favourite artists, brothers, and long term collaborators, Kevin and Páraic McGloughlin got together to create a short film with huge visual and conceptual intensity. It is the story of our planet and us on it. Swarming. The huge scale of our impact on the planet presented as beautiful and terrifying growing structures as we see population growth time lapse set against frenetic activity. Usually I write music alongside rough visual ideas from my project stories, and rely on the video artist to synchronise them for music videos. But this beast of a short film was presented more or less finished, and I had the daunting task of how to make the music live up to the feeling and spectacle of the film. As well as sync to the barrage of visual cues. It turned into a bit of an obsession, where I was trying to find the right sounds to link with every new scene, and given the number of scenes, it turned into one of my most detailed pieces of music. If you can listen in HD format with headphones there are many details to find in there, often using spatial/binaural format to make them audible amongst the chaos. Kevin and Páraic also had a big role in guiding the musical style as it’s their film rather than my music video this time. We tried several different ideas, and they encouraged me to go the route of my sansula pieces which you may notice the link to. It’s a small thumb plucked instrument that I play and record and has formed a major part of my sound over the years. The main element that I started with was that big pitch bending synth chord sequence. It seemed to capture something of the growing intensity and power of the film, and I could also sync the pitch gliding to the longer scale visual arrangement. The whole process of building the arrangement tightly to the film yielded an unusual musical structure for me, which was a nice habit breaking process that gave me some lessons to take into future projects. It took a long time to create an audio mapping, but they have made such a beautiful visual spectacle it was a total pleasure to work on and obsess over. Big thanks to Kevin and Páraic McGloughlin for getting me involved in this short film, and I hope some of you can hear and feel the love and sweat and tears we all put into the project.

Atropolis - From Greece With Love (feat. Yiannis Mandas) [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO]

Atropolis - From Greece With Love (feat. Yiannis Mandas) [OFFICIAL MUSIC VIDEO] Buy / Stream here: Spotify: Apple Music: Amazon Music: Bandcamp (Pre-Order Album): ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Astoria, Queens resident Adam Partridge, aka Atropolis, goes back to his roots with “From Greece With Love,” the second single from his upcoming album. Incorporating traditional Grecian sounds into the Global Bass / Tropical Dance genre, the track is a bass heavy dancefloor bomb featuring the unique musicianship of Yiannis Mandas, who lends his skills on the Cretan Lyra and vocals. Atropolis has spent the past decade teaching music production, releasing music, studying and working with sounds ranging from his own Greek-Cypriot heritage to other diverse musical cultures in Colombia, India, Mexico, Ghana and South Africa. With a degree in music composition and ethnomusicology, Atropolis is Adam’s alter ego that explores international styles of music fused with a diverse range of contemporary electronic genres. Growing up, Adam’s after school jazz program at Queens College greatly influenced his improvisational, compositional, and rhythmic approach to music production. His instructors at Queens College introduced a focused study on Thelonious Monk’s repertoire, which still resonates throughout Adam’s approach to playing his primary instrument, the piano. Parallel to these teenage musical moments, Adam was introduced to composition using Sibelius, and Digital Performer, where Atropolis got his first chops in music production using digital audio workstations. His upcoming album, “Time of Sine,” is due on Wonderwheel Recordings in July, 2020.
