12" Lion's Choice V002

12″ Lion’s Choice V002

 

Nous vous parlions récemment de la collaboration entre le label Lion’s Den, basé à Berlin et le producteur polonais Violinbwoy, pour une série de trois 12″ intitulée Lion’s Choice. Après la sortie du très bon ‘I Man Be Free’ de Kali Green Feat Saralène cet été (Lire la chronique), on vous propose de jeter un coup d’œil sur la suite de cette aventure.

Commençons par le second 12″ du projet, sur lequel on retrouve le chanteur anglais Echo Ranks aux côtés de Violinbwoy. Le Riddim est un authentique Stepper à la rythmique énergique et doté d’une basse puissante. Les mélodies plus subtiles se mêlent parfaitement à la voix et aux Lyrics conscients d’Echo Ranks, qui signe un véritable hymne à la paix avec ce terrible ‘Don’t Kill Your Brother’ ! Sur la version ‘Don’t Kill Your Dub’, le dubmaker cale ses effets aussi bien sur la voix du chanteur que sur les différentes pistes et nous livre un mix en mode Heavyweight Stepper Style. Un régal! En face B, on retrouve avec plaisir le style avant-gardiste des croates de Digitron. Proposant un wicked remix du Vocal sur ‘Don’t Kill Nobody, Please’, suivi de sa Version Spatiale avec ‘Don’t Kill Dub’. Un must à avoir dans sa collection !

another monday, another release ;-)…here comes the second VINYL in the >Lion’s Choice< series...this version hails back to early 2014 when I invited Echo Ranks longside Radikal Guru for a Lion's Den meets Moonshine Recordings night to the old Yaam… we used the little time before the session and the next morning to record some dubs with Echo in my little room back then for some Berlin soundmen and had a first exchange on the idea of a collaboration… some time after this meeting I sent him a heavy steppaz riddim by Violinbwoy and he went into the studio in Leicester to record "Don't Kill Your Brother"… those vocals were then sent to Poland and got the Violinbwoy dub treatment, him creating two completely new versions… full power, full force…as I love the style and works of vrki and his Digitron Sound project a lot, the idea wasn't far-fetched to ask him for a remix… and so he gave it the psy-hooligan-steppas-approach :P just a glimpse of what's to come after those good times we spent together this spring and summer on tour, in the studio and on different festivals and sessions… watch out for some tuff collaborations :Pgrab yur copy thru https://lionsdensound.bandcamp.com/ or us directly(if yu are in the area and have the possibility: for us it's even much better and stronger support if yu buy directly from us… either at a gig, pass thru at our yard, etc. and not thru the store, as every little service takes a little share…)Violinbwoy feat.

Echo Ranks from Leicester, UK, calling upon his I-dren to stop the senseless killing. A message of peace for the youths of today.

Le troisième 12″ de cette série réunit à nouveau Violinbwoy et Kali Green sur le titre ‘Too Hot Fi Dem’. Le chanteur allemand y balance un lyrics critiquant le babylon system sur un Stepper au Kick rapide et à la bassline redoutable. La version ‘Too Dub Fi Dem’ démarre avec la voix de Kali Green sur laquelle Violinbwoy prend un malin plaisir à mettre du delay avant de se lancer dans un mix ruff & tuff dont il a le secret! En tournant la galette, on tombe sur deux nouvelles versions Stepper du ‘Don’t Kill Your Brother’, remixé cette fois-ci par les Parisiens de Bredrins Records. Une belle façon de clôturer cette série en collaboration avec Violinbwoy et de talentueux artistes internationaux.

Pour terminer cette chronique, nous vous parlerons de la dernière sortie du label. Datant du mois de Septembre, elle met à l’honneur une nouvelle collaboration internationale entre les français de Massive Dub Corporation (MDC) à la prod, Manu Aka Anti-Bypass au mix et Queen Omega au chant!

Avec ses percussions, ses quelques notes de piano et de cuivre et la superbe voix de Queen Omega, le Tune ‘Real Lioness’ débute sur une ambiance très Roots. Mais après une intro assez longue et posée, le rythme de ce vocal mix s’accélère et le riddim de MDC se transforme en un one drop Stepper ina Rootikal style! Queen Omega fait preuve d’une prestation de haut niveau avec son style si particulier, switchant entre une voix rauque et des tons plus suaves, tandis que le Mix d’Anti-Bypass met le tout en valeur. C’est encore Manu que l’on retrouvera au mixage sur ‘Part 4/5′ et ‘Part 3/2′, deux dubs qui viennent faire durer le plaisir.Le dernier titre présent sur ce 12″ est un Re-remix des gars de MDC qui nous proposent une vision plus moderne du titre avec ‘Lioness Roar’. De quoi surprendre plus d’un massive en session!

What came out is a chant full of energy inna conscious anthem style.Inspired by the name of the label, the « Real Lioness » stepped into the recording booth to unleash her fyah and let everybody know about the ancient story and concept of the Lion’s Den – not having lost any truth since then, relevant as ever in those modern days in babylon society. About always moving forward, despite the daily struggle, daily strive and fight, across any kind of barrier – believing in one’s own mission, having faith and strength to spread a positive message. Queen Omega chants with strong dedication and will to fight for a better place.Her vocal inspired MDC to rework the riddim as a live band and with live instrumentation and give it a little more rootsy touch. This version was then given to the dub and fx mastermind Anti-Bypass from Lyon, France, to take it into his 25th Toy Studio laboratory and run it through a crazy universe of custom modified machines in order to come up with a series of heavily dubbed out wet mixes, full of lovely effects and a lot of ‘anti-bypass’.But the journey didn’t stop there and MDC went back on a ruff sound system style re-remix of their own tune to make you rock and skank…So better drop the needle and let the disc take you on a journey… from Germany to France to Trinidad and beyond…Both sides were transferred to 1/2inch Tape for extra analogue warmth, mastered with care and pressed on high quality 180g vinyl by Star Delta / Delta Disc, UK – of course also digikally available.

Ces trois vinyles sont dispo dés maintenant, chacun étant limité à 500 exemplaires numérotés à la main. Plus d’info sur le Bandcamp du label Lion’s Den en cliquant ici.

Big up Ras Lion.
