  1. i'm tired of people forgetting about everying africa .. Many i've posted music, and it's been ignored, and yet you like what ? bS clichecrap.
  2. SO Is anyone here into the south african scene? Felix laband is one of my fav producers from there sided by Markus Wormstorm and Spoek Mathambo He's gone on a hiatus for a decade, much like aphex he hasn't released anything since "Dark Days Exit" my favorite from him which I strongly recommend. Anyway it seems he's back now with alot of new stuff, he'll probably release an album soon. Some old stuff: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y80bx-zruVs http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6LXE5vvx7I Here's a video interview: A very recent interview: http://idmmag.com/featured/felix-laband-things-ive-always-wanted-to-ask/ And the soundcloud full with new things
  3. After almost ten years of silence South African musician Felix Laband is back with his new album Deaf Safari. His previous albums are some of the clearest music I've ever heard, so nicely produced. using a lot of field recordings like dripping water in a basement, a sink flushing, a pencil writing on paper. With Deaf Safari he focusses a bit more on vocals and sampling and is more influenced by the Kwaito house scene, while stil maintaining his singnature sound. I've been waiting a couple of years for this album so I'm pretty excited about this one Deaf Safari is out on the 29th of May on Copost records as Vinyl CD or download. You can listen to some previews on his soundcloud. [sc5]173704131[/sc5] [sc5]158018034[/sc5] [sc5]174827615[/sc5] Here's an interview from a couple of months back [youtubehd]/7ALs880jaKg[/youtubehd] Info: Deaf Safari is an audio collage of subjects that interest me and speak of the world I live in. It is an album composed of sampled recordings from the media landscape that has been the soundtrack to my life over the last ten years. The most important development in my current music and as can be heard on Deaf Safari has been my understanding of the beauty and power of the spoken word. I have experienced severe indifference to contemporary pop and electronic music as a whole over the last many years, as I have felt that social comment of any relevance has been ignored by music in general. Deaf Safari attempts to bring sociopolitical comment into my music without taking any specific stand. Sampled outside of musical influence directly from the news; from preacher sermons or from contemporary African documentaries. I have finally created a story with sound that I feel accurately conveys my personal experience with the African world I live in. My musical influences on this album lie mostly with local Kwaito house. Deaf Safari is an experiment within certain boundaries of the 4/4 genre, to create my own South African “house” album. I am proud and inspired about the South African Kwaito house scene. However, as with my first three albums, “Thin Shoes In June“ (2001) - "4/4 Down The Stairs“ (2002) and "Dark Days Exit“ (2005), I am still interested in making strange and evocative music. American Roots music from the earlier periods of the 20th century has deeply resonated with me during the making of this album. The incredible field recordings by Alan Lomax of Negro prison and chain gang work songs, and the beautiful early recordings of artists such as Leadbelly have had a major influence on Deaf Safari. I am truly excited to release this album and to start performing in the music world again. It has been ten years since I released "Dark Days Exit , and although I have been purposefully absent from the music world, I have none the less never stopped making music. I feel that I have finally arrived at a mature and challenging stage in my pursuit of making emotional music of relevance.
