Featured Artist | Sons Of Kemet

After the blistering success of their debut album 'Burn' in 2013, Sons of Kemet return with their highly anticipated follow up Lest We Forget What We Came Here To Do. 'Burn' is a hard act to follow - not only did it garner the band fans such as Gilles Peterson (who included the album in his Worldwide Awards shortlist) and stunning reviews, including The Arts Desk (who pronounced it Album Of The Year) and The Quietus, but they also scooped the MOBO Best Jazz Award. The bar has indeed been set high for the second album, but yet again Sons of Kemet have surpassed themselves, delivering an album stuffed to the rafters with the euphoric, danceable grooves and riffs that made 'Burn' such an unprecedented success and audiences go crazy.

The new album has taken literary inspirations on tracks such as In The Castle Of My Skin (named after Barbadian author George Lamming's 1953 novel about post-colonial identity) and The Long Night Of Octavia E Butler, in homage to the award-winning African-American sci-fi writer.  

The album's overall restless and trancey energy is most definitely a collective achievement, and over the past year and a half Sons Of Kemet have seeped this latest material into their irrepressible live sets. Lest We Forget What We Came Here To Do is proof that there's still nothing quite like the ‘supergroup' sound of Sons Of Kemet: eloquent, fierce, explosively funky - and thrillingly out-there.

White On Black Vol.1

Sons Of Kemet
naimwb901

When London quartet Sons of Kemet released its debut album 'Burn' last year, no one could have predicted the impact it made. Examples such as winning a MOBO, featured on many 'Albums of the Year' and 'Best Of' lists from iTunes to the Quietus. Unsurprisingly, remixes started to appear, but two in particular caught Naim's eagle eyes. Naim decided to release the tracks on 300 limited edition Vinyl's to mark the beginning of a new series: White On Black Vol.1.

Side A - Blludd Relations is a collaboration between producer Bullion (best known for his work on Young Turks and his very own DEEK label) and Jesse Hackett (multi-instrumentalist, songwriter and producer with Brownswood's Owiny Sigoma Band/Elmore Judd and one half of Pipe Down! a bi-weekly show on NTS Radio).

Side B - Hello Skinny is acclaimed producer/composer alter-ego of Tom Skinner (who is one of two drummers that can be found in Sons Of Kemet).
