PVA
Toner

Following the acclaim surrounding the release ‘Divine Intervention’ late in 2019, London trio PVA arrive on Big Dada with a new EP entitled 'Toner'. As well as three new tracks of slinky punk-funk which have been produced by Speedy Wunderground’s Dan Carey, 'Toner' also contains a trio of remixes from Mura Masa, Lynks and Girl Band’s Daniel Fox. 

Young Fathers
Tape One / Tape Two

Essential re-issue of the early years of eventual Mercury Prize winners Young Fathers. 'Tape 1' and 'Tape 2' saw the band honing their near unclassifiable sound which blends hip-hop with influences from indie, jazz and soul. 'Tape 1' in particular is totally magnificent  - a call to arms that ensured that we were in the presence of something really special. 

Farai
Rebirth

It’s unclear whether Farai is to be seen as a new solo project of vocalist Farai Bukowski-Bouquet or as a collaboration between herself and producer TONE. The press release says that Rebirth is a collaborative affair, but the ‘featuring TONE’ tag on single ‘Punk Champagne’ suggests that the group’s debut LP may have been driven by Farai. However, what’s for sure is that this sparky punk-rap record is a perfect fit for Big Dada. Micachu & The Shapes drummer Marc Fell thumps a few tubs here.

WEN
EPHEM:ERA

WEN’s new set EPHEM:ERA observes grime from a studied distance, taking the core club ingredients of the sound and applying the WEN magic to them in order to construct semi-abstracted electronic music that makes you wonder: is this a piece, or a track? Either way, twelve slices of great audio. EPHEM:ERA is out on Big Dada.

Onyx Collective
Lower East Suite Part Three

After the first two instalments of their Lower East Suite series garnered considerable interest, NYC neo-jazz ensemble Onyx Collective complete the trio with an LP. The group's music combines serious jazz/free-jazz chops with techniques from music concrete, hip-hop, neo-soul and other genres, and is imbued with the same sparky DIY aesthetic as fellow Big Apple upstarts Wiki and Princess Nokia. It makes for a dense, evocative listening experience.

Young Fathers
Only God Knows feat. Leith Congregational Choir

Young Fathers new track is extra notable in two ways: first of all, it features in the big-deal new film T2: Trainspotting. Secondly, it features Leith Congregational Choir, who enable the Young Fathers to ascend to amazing levels of gospel-powered electro-punk-hop. What a wonderful ecstatic tune! 7” single on Big Dada.

EERA
Reflection of Youth

A curveball from Big Dada here, a label not known for its work with singer-songwriters in the PJ Harvey mould. Nevertheless, that’s what we get on EERA’s debut LP - ten fiery songs that bear a pretty strong influence of Peej, as well as Cat Power, Deerhoof and Angel Olsen. Much like Devon’s famous daughter, the one born Anna Lena Bruland is in possession of a rich, earthy voice. A limited edition red vinyl is available.

Visionist
Value

Big Grime buddy Visionist is putting out a new record on Big Dada. Barely taking a breath after late 2015's Safe, Louis Carnell has produced another study in vulnerability, this time approaching themes of machismo and effeminacy rather than safety and anxiety. Oh, and between the beats you might even spot the vocals of Visionist himself.

Zomby
GASP!

Hot on the heels of his impressive 'Ultra' album this three tracker from Zomby explores a more hardware driven sound, eschewing saturation and overdubbing in lieu of a relentless barrage of breaks and beats that is said to fit somewhere between a darkened dance floor and a chugging factory. We think we know what he means.

Hype Williams
Rainbow Edition

After several years off pursuing their own projects, Dean Blunt and Inga Copeland are back with a new album as Hype Williams. Except they aren't, as the press release reckons neither of them are involved. Or are they? The woozy, disjointed music they previously concocted has spawned lots of imitators but now we get the real thing. Or do we? 

Kutmah
TROBBB!

After multiple releases on Obey and Hit+Run, and doing a mix for Ninja Tune, Kutmah makes his debut for Big Dada with THROBBB!. High octane mash of fiery hip hob beats and a spitting punk attitude. Think Death Grips meets Run The Jewels and Edan. Features tracks with many guest artists, including Natureboy Flako, Gonjasufi, Jeremiah Jae, Akello G Light, and many more.

Wen
Carve + Gaze

We were all asking … Wen we’d be hearing something new from one of the most original voices in instrumental grime. Having been quite quiet since a flurry of releases in 2014 and 2015, the Kent producer has resurfaced on Big Dada and fronted four tracks of square-wave skullduggery. The anti-drop on lead single ‘Blips’ is a joy.

Roots Manuva
Switching Sides

5 fresh new tracks from Roots Manuva here for Record Store Day. He sounds properly energised here: some of the hazy lethargy of his earlier work seems to have been blasted away by the tight and heavy productions of With You (incorporating Switch and Daouda Leonard). 500 12” vinyl copies on Big Dada.

Run The Jewels
Run The Jewels

Run the Jewels are the hip-hop supergroup featuring El-P of Company Flow and Killer Mike. Their self-titled debut pitted the two rappers against each other to devastating effect. The record comes across like a mix tape with ideas flying about left, right and centre and guests like Big Boi and Prince Paul joining in the fun. Originally released on Fool's Gold, Big Dada have re-pressed for the European market on green splattered wax.  

Young Fathers
White Men Are Black Men Too

Boldly titled follow-up album to Young Fathers’ award-winning debut, White Men Are Black Men Too. This group are not afraid to stir things up with their lyrics, their politics and their productions, which continue to mix hip-hop structures with all sorts of not-so-expected sonics. Released by the Big Dada label.

Tre Mission
Stigmata

Idiosyncratic cross continental beats from Tre Mission. Stigmata is a journey encompassing all things hip-hop from Canada, England and America. His range of influences is similar in scope to his range of collaborations on this record. It's got elements of grime, trap, garage, R&B with poppy sensibilities but is rooted firmly in hip-hop. Out on vinyl LP and CD from Big Dada.

Busdriver
Perfect Hair

'Perfect Hair' is the eighth record in the career of lightning fast wordsmith Busdriver, who has been speeding past people with his raps for a minute now. On record, he's joined by a great host of contemporaries, including the Andrew WK of hip-hop, Danny Brown, and Aesop Rock, who shares a love for getting his poems out as fast as possible and leaving listeners stuck in the rubble. As always, Busdriver is recommended for fans of underground and indie rap music.

Kate Tempest
Everybody Down

“Wow”. Not my word but the word of none other than Chuck D. on hearing the debut album by British singer and poet Kate Tempest. Indeed the album was something of a revelation on release. Tempest's gritty street words on prostitution and drug addiction blending uniquely with Dan Carey's lively and inventive production leading to the album being nominated for a Mercury prize in 2014.

Roots Manuva
Brand New Second Hand

Due to the huge success of ‘Witness (1 Hope)’, a lot of people see Roots Manuva’s career as kicking off in 2001 with Run Come Save Me. Now that’s a fine record indeed, but to put all your energy into that album and overlook Rodney Smith’s 1999 debut LP Brand New Second Hand is a wrong move. Over beats that blended reggae, boom-bap, jungle and scratch influences, Roots Manuva delivered bars of potent dub poetry here. The overall effect comes off like Linton Kwesi Jonson remixed by DJ Shadow and makes Brand New Second Hand one of the first great UK hip-hop records. Ignore at your peril.
