Lady Blackbird – Remix Dubplate #001 EP



COD: FMPLB001 Categoria: Tag: ,


Lady Blackbird’s recent album Black Acid Soul was many things – a modern soul-jazz masterpiece for starters – but dancefloor-ready was not one of them. Because of this, the Los Angeles-based artist has decided to inaugurate a series of ‘remix dubplates’ featuring fresh revisions of cuts from the album. Number one in the series features two rubs from Colleen ‘Cosmo’ Murphy under the Cosmodelica alias: a brilliant full-vocal remix in which spacey synth stabs, Clavinet sounds and clipped disco guitars rise above a sturdy dub disco groove, and a flipside dub that removes most of Lady Blackbird’s fine vocal and emphasizes the trippy elements in Murphy’s brilliant re-prodution (particularly the synthesizer sounds).
