new album out march 22nd on TARTELET RECORDS
We're (finally!) happy to share with you today Wayne Snow's Freedom TV. In the past weeks the singer and songwriter has already been making waves, attracting the praise of tastemakers such as Gilles Peterson and Lefto, whilst drawing the attention of Thump, DJ Mag, The Fader, The Vinyl Factory and Mojo to list a few. The ten tracks of the album meander effortlessly between different musical styles, from low-tempo soothers, to syncopated bruk and cosmic funk escapades. More than anything, Freedom TV is an eclectic soundtrack for anyone seeking a wholesome exploration of groove.
Vocalist Wayne Snow first appeared on Max Graef's critically acclaimed debut album from last year followed by his solo EP 'Red Runner' on Tartelet Records. This second EP 'Rosie' delivers a fresh badge of rugged soulfulness over off-kilter chords, body shaking basslines & dusty beats as Max does best. Combining Wayne's falsetto vocals with Max's beats and production for a record that heralds the sunshine and a spring of cold beers, rowing boats on the Spree and strong sativa. On the flip, newcomers Nu Guinea, serve up a slow burning jam, paying tribute to early St. Germain work, while German hip-hop producer Hurbert Daviz slows it down for a between-the-sheets hymn high on harmonics.
His first EP 'Red Runner' sees Wayne Snow drop a deluge of soul over grubby Rhodes tones, contorted melodies and tumbling drums backed up by remixes from Glenn Astro and Session Victim. The title track rubs Snow's harmonised vocal lines against choked horn stabs and chugging guitar flashes while Glenn Astro & Imyrmind inject some mangled synthesis and Session Victim pack in a rhythmically tight revision. Blue Moon brings things to a close as it softly gallops with stuttered shuffles and granular drum samples. 'Red Runner' is a collaborative project between Tartelet and Comet Records, Comet specialises in bringing a myriad of Afro Psych Rock sounds together and are lauded champions of the Afrobeat revival.
