That new label from the north (of England) SIGNALS have a very exciting second 12” about to hit the shops.
Here are the details:
SIG.MMX.II – The Otherside ft. Musa K – Headless Corpse/Roadblock
A Side – Headless Corpse
B Side – Roadblock
Second release from Signals label out of the icey wastes of the North of England, comes a superb two track 12”.
Originally heard on a C90 mixtape from the mid 90s; unearthed 15 years later, recorded from a demo played on The Andy Kershaw Show on Radio 1 in 1996! What followed was an epic quest to find the artist and the original masters and all roads led to West London, Summer 2010………….
Musa K hails from Sierra Leone but is now based in West London and his tracks paint a landscape of brutality and horror on the Guinea coast, set to a soundtrack that is pure funk.
These two remarkable previously unreleased tracks fuse and deconstruct; Hip Hop, Afrobeat, Techno, P-Funk and Dub. A truly unique voice and lyrical style Musa fits no stereotype.
An edition of 200, 12inch black vinyl
remastered from original mastertapes.
Will be available January 2011 from Clone and other retailers.
