Each track is named after where it was composed: "Mexicali", "Canada Airport", "Noumea Hotel Room"... Manudigital revient aujourd’hui nous présenter « Dub Trotter », son premier et très attendu EP dub. Cet EP, Manudigital l’a enregistré sur la route lors des deux dernières années de tournée à travers le monde, d'où le nom de "Dub Trotter" à la manière d'un globe-trotter (Manudigital était 13ème au Palmarès Live Export 2019 du Bureau Export - 130 dates / 20 pays). Chaque morceau porte le nom de l'endroit où il a été composé : "Mexicali", "Canada Airport", "Noumea Hotel Room"... 🇬🇧 With 2 solo albums ("Digital Pixel" in 2016 and "Bass Attack" in 2018), ten EPs and more than 500 gigs around the world, Manudigital has become in a few years one of the most look-after French beatmakers on the international Reggae scene. Manudigital has collaborated with numerous artists from all over the world such as Walshy Fire, Alborosie, Beenie Man, Soom T, Skarra Mucci, Babylon Circus, Biga Ranx, Panda Dub and many others and hides behind countless albums, singles and maxis in which one can immediately recognize all his savoir faire and unique sound signature.

WUJIDAT - ABADIR and Pie Are Squared (Video)

ABADIR and Pie Are Squared: Wujidat Akuphone AKU1032 Video by L'Aubaine Songs: Al-Anesa Malak - Ya Am Ya Khali Laure Daccache - Munyati Ezz Istibari Aziz Osman - Ansuna wa Taaloulna Tamalli Recomposed by ABADIR & Pie Are Squared Visit: It’s 2120, it’s been 10 years since the WHO’s latest health guidelines signaled the end of music. Noises over 30 dB are no longer allowed, and global governments have imposed strict laws to ensure that these regulations are enforced. Noise detectors are now planted everywhere, and noise levels are subject to constant surveillance. Talking is discouraged, yelling is a criminal offence, singing is now a foreign concept to younger generations. Courses designed to rid musicians and music lovers of their desire to sing or play instruments have been deemed a resounding success. It must have been exciting for her to find this tape on a walk by the riverside, even though she had no idea what it was and how to use it. Many would have been tempted to discard it, probably rightly so, but Yolande Khouzam had been an Acoustics Researcher before the obsolescence of the entire discipline and this object seemed vaguely familiar to her. We’re not sure if she managed to find a way to play it. If she did, it would’ve been badly mangled, the sounds at times completely indiscernible, especially towards the end of each side. We’re not sure if Arabic was one of the 4 remaining languages, if it was, she would be able to tell that these are songs from a completely different time, played with instruments that she hadn’t heard before. The music seemed to come from the same era, but as the mixtape progressed, the instrumentation, scales and sound seemed to gather a more western influence. Using whatever resources she could find, her research helped her trace most of the recordings and she dated them to the early 20th century, mostly between the 1920’s and 1940’s. She found that the change in sound, scales and instrumentation over the duration of the mixtape, with a more pronounced Western influence on the more recent songs could be attributed to a Congress of Arab Music that reportedly had been held in Cairo in 1932 under the patronage of King Fuad I. That remains only a guess for now. While no legible writings were found on the cassette tape, she did find an archived online review of a mixtape released almost a century before her time which seemed to contain something very similar to the tape she found. The tape, titled Wujidat w as made by Egyptian musicians ABADIR and Pie Are Squared to experiment with dissecting and degrading traditional Egyptian songs by known and unknown artists. What Yolande might have assumed was a mixtape made to provoke nostalgia, was almost the exact opposite of that. What made it even more intriguing is that the mixtape she found had been intentionally made to sound broken and degraded.

Charlie Parr - "Last of the Better Days Ahead" [Official Music Video]

Watch the official music video for "Last of the Better Days Ahead," the title track and first single off Charlie Parr's upcoming Smithsonian Folkways debut. 'Last of the Better Days Ahead' available July 30, 2021, on CD, 2xLP, and digital. Pre-order/stream: Smithsonian Folkways: All other platforms: Lyrics: Money can’t buy back that ʼ64 Falcon that you sold in your 20s and then regretted it was gone because you thought it contained some meaning or some answers to a life that you never bothered to question or even take a good close look at And it broke your heart to see how it had been so important from the feeling of the steering wheel to the rubber on the road and now it’s grown to unrealistic proportions in your mind Now you’re in your 50s why can’t you forget how the chrome bumpers shined in the sun if you could just go back even for a minute you could forget how you don’t even know what it was you’ve lost Why do you always feel so empty in spite of all you have were those feelings you remember even real and were they honestly about some junky old Falcon or any other thing that you could own Because now it’s all so stale and you feel so very old like you’ve taken all your chances and tossed them all aside for some stupid piece of metal like shiny bits of trash that line the stolen nest of a greedy neighborhood crow So you drive back to your hometown to visit with your past but nothing looks the same anymore except you can see all that you squandered while you were shining all that chrome you were handed all you needed without cost but you were too blind to see it and you took it all for granted now you wanna complain—tell me just what was it that you’ve lost And now you start to panic and your gas is running low and you need to find some meaning before you’re stranded on the road and when the engine finally dies near a soybean field at dusk you just sit and watch the sunset turn the entire sky to rust --- Charlie Parr’s newest album, Last of the Better Days Ahead, is a collection of powerful new songs about how one looks back on a life lived, as well as forward on what’s still to come. Its spare production foregrounds Parr’s poetic lyricism, his expressive, gritty voice ringing clear over deft acoustic guitar playing that references folk and blues motifs in Parr’s own exploratory, idiosyncratic style. When it comes to what it all means, Parr says it best: “Last of the Better Days Ahead is a way for me to refer to the times I’m living in. I’m getting on in years, experiencing a shift in perspective that was once described by my mom as ‘a time when we turn from gazing into the future to gazing back at the past, as if we’re adrift in the current, slowly turning around.’ Some songs came from meditations on the fact that the portion of our brain devoted to memory is also the portion responsible for imagination, and what that entails for the collected experiences that we refer to as our lives. Other songs are cultivated primarily from the imagination, but also contain memories of what may be a real landscape, or at least one inspired by vivid dreaming. The album represents one full rotation of the boat in which we are adrift—looking ahead for a last look at the better days to come, then being turned around to see the leading edge of the past as it fades into the foggy dreamscape of our real and imagined histories.” Charlie Parr: Facebook: Twitter: Instagram: Smithsonian Folkways: Facebook: Twitter: Instagram: The content and comments posted here are subject to the Smithsonian Institution copyright and privacy policy ( Smithsonian reserves the right in its sole discretion to remove any content at any time.

Lucidvox - My Little Star (Звёздочка) (Official video)

Taken from the album "We Are" CD/LP:​ Stream/DL:​ Lucidvox are an influential voice in the burgeoning Russian DIY rock scene. Incendiary mix of atmospheric psych-rock, heavy riffs and Russian folk mystery. My Little Star is about a young girl who lost the most important thing in her life – her mother. People say that those that are closest to you, will never leave you and will always be there. All the time this young girl looks for her own star, one that shines more vividly than all the others in the world. But the thing that she actually finds is a little star inside of herself - and that becomes for her the star that shines the brightest.
