MF Doom & Bishop Nehru

Nehruviandoom (Redux)

The VILLAIN was laying low on the fog shrouded Tin Islands when Bishop’s X-Wing crashed into his swamp.

It was April 2013, and that’s a metaphor for Bishop’s first meeting with DOOM before a show at the 100 Club. The future collaborators were booked to play in the tiny ancient jazz venue with Ghostface Killah that night.

A month earlier Bishop had been co-signed on stage at SXSW by Nas. There was mad anticipation for his next project. Stakes were high. At the 100 Club, VILLAIN saw what Nas had seen, a real MC.

In the months that followed Metal Fingers sent Bishop Yousendit links to folders of beats and Bishop laid down bars. The two worked remotely and then followed up with sessions in the studio.Amongst many swell reviews the mini-album caught a lot of criticism. Not least because it was so short, just 32 minutes. To mark the 5th anniversary, we’ve reduced the running time to 27 minutes.

Becoming Real

Mist Face

    Becoming Real is a UK electronic producer based in Copenhagen. ‘Mist Face’ finds him further exploring the influence of grime, vapour wave, cyberpunk and ambient dream music, paired with detailed and engrossing sound design that conjures fragmented ghostly scenes in empty future cities. It should appeal to fans of Arca, Burial, Four Tet, Varg, HKE, Murlo, Dream Catalogue and Actress. Since his first release in 2010 he’s dropped several well-received EPs and an album on Transgressive Records. His early promise earned him inclusion in The Guardian’s ‘New Band Of The Week’ and NME’s ‘Radar’ features, and saw him pick up radio support from Lauren Laverne, Huw Stevens, Mistajam, Rinse and Mary Ann Hobbs. Following the release of his debut album ‘Pure Apparition’, he took some time out of music to focus on the visual arts. ‘Mist Face’ is his most fully realised project yet.

    Lex lay on some of the good stuff here with the debut LP from Fudge, a killer collaboration between dope MC Michael Christmas and production wizz Prefuse 73. Wonky beats and wild lyricism abound as the duo take us on a trip through their out-the-box inner-thoughts. "Lady Parts" came together during several sessions in the summer and fall of 2015 at Nick Hook’s Green Point studio. Ever-ready and perma-prepared like any good boy scout, Prefuse 73 brought along a hard drive full of beats. Christmas wrote to the instrumentals in the studio, and recorded the vocals the same day, as friends swung by to check it out. Some of the drop-ins at the studio ended up joining in the recording, not least D.R.A.M. who brings lifted soul vocals on “All Points South”. Though the wacky-factor is high (check out the rude, nude and lewd cover), "Lady Parts" is a subtle story, bestowed with musical intricacies and lyrical themes which only reveal themselves on multiple listens. Let this one into your life, y'all.
