Débruit & Alsarah – aljawal الجوال (out on 11-11-2013)

Via soundwayrecords.com

« Soundway records present a unique record: a modern, haunting take on Sudanese music heard through the sonic lens of French artist / producer, Débruit and the poetic, ethereal lyrics and melodies of Sudanese-born singer Alsarah.

Aljawal (The Traveller) is a nomadic reflection for the 21st century. Each song reflects a new stop in the journey, with new cities and new people along the way. When Alsarah first heard Débruit’s music she sensed and recognised a fellow traveller through the space and geography of his influences, a sense of time and history coupled with a forward-thinking futuristic outlook.

Born in the capital city of Sudan, Khartoum, Alsarah spent the first 8 years of her life here before she relocated to Taez, Yemen with her family to escape the ever-stifling regime in her native country. She abruptly moved to the US in 1994, when a brief civil war broke out in Yemen, and has lived there to this day.  

Xavier Thomas revealed Débruit in 2008 with 2 sold out 12″s for his and Fulgeance’s Parisian “Musique Large” imprint. Three more EPs on Civil Music followed that included his hit ‘Nigeria What’. Piquing interest from the likes of XLR8R, Fact Mag, Benji B and Gilles Peterson his debut album ‘From The Horizon’ came out last year. His dazzling live electronics show has taken him around the world, from Russia to New York, Glastonbury to Sonar. 

On Aljawal he managed to capture and play with an analog sound that stretched the boundaries of the Sudanese rhythms and melodies that Alsarah had grown up with. A unique record was imagined and is finally presented here after a 2 year interplay of ideas and interaction between France and Brooklyn: Alsarah’s adopted home. »

« Le choix de la maison »

« Pure product of the golden age of Hip Hop , « Sonik Fiktion » is the result of an encounter between legendary  MC’s and a composer worthy of the greatest names of English trip-hop. A flashback of the days before  the audio compression of the 10’s, this album draws as much inspiration  from New York’s soulful moods as from Bristol’s theatrical atmosphere. Rose From The Dirt immediately raises the mood: powerful, dark and heady, where DV the Kryst & Rock (Heltah Skelath) offer a tribute to the underground. Guilty Simpson and Oh No set Trust The Song on fire , a production worthy of Stones Throw’s greatest moments. Sadat X (Brand Nubian), Lord Have Mercy (Flipmode Squad) & Fred The Godson drop Look At The Door, leaning laid back on the corner of 88 Tenth Ave. Hannah Aldridge and Grace Kelly cast a spell with their nostalgic melodies reminiscent of the « Wild Bunch » sound. Finally a few instrumentals complete the tracklist, worked as a DJ Krush under Prozak. 12 tracks for an endless journey on the  sinusoidal waves of a Galactic Akai. »
