Firstly, a massive thanks to everyone who has supported, played, hyped and picked up our first EP from the one and only West Coast funkadelic baller, B. Bravo. And now here’s our second. And press release hyperbole aside, cos you know you can read all about that here – we’re hugely excited and proud to release the second EP from who we regard as being two of the dopest producers from the UK and proper EE fam – Wales’s Don Leisure and Metabeats aka the almighty Darkhouse Fam.
Oli Marlow / MLR from Sonic Router has put it best – “Darkhouse Fam seem to be able to make music that simultaneously channels the best bits of Madlib’s attention deficit style and that classic Dabrye-esque futurist vision of beat making.”
It’s the Barry / Cardiff dungeon family. Proper music from proper music heads on the rise with guest spots from hip hop royalty – Om’Mas Keith from Sa-Ra, B. Bravo and Vanity Jay. Over the last few months we’ve been working hard with the guys alongside the EE crack team of Aerosyn-Lex on the artwork and a dope day out in Wales with our good friend and awesome photographer Jasper Clarke to shoot the press shots. Watch out for the upcoming video by London Sessions too.
Super slick vinyl and digital versions of Darkhouse Fam’s “In & Out” EP is out worldwide on February 27. Big shouts to our distributor Ben @Kudos.
See you down on Friday March 9 for the launch party where we’ll bringing it back basement styles in a secret London location with the homies at Hit+Run – it’s a double celebration as Kutmah’s “Worldwide Family Vol. 2” CD is also being released and we have the homie Gaslamp Killer over to SLAY DOMES.
