I’ve been waiting a long time for this. This, being Xorcism, the album by The Spaceape, yeah, him whose name one is used to seeing with Kode9. The Spaceape has some new stories to tell, and it is very personal. So personal that I will leave it to him to share as he will with this new disc. You can read some of his lyrics at his blog which is here. I’ve always felt that his contributions to the albums he did with Kode9 were never really appreciated, he’s vastly underrated in my opinion. But hey, people like Kode9, Martyn, The Bug, Jerry Dammers, Dub Gabriel, call him up, so that’s good enough for me. This video is the business, shout out to Hiroo Tanaka and Kiki Hitomi

Interview with The Spaceape.
Talks ’bout new album with Kode9 an’ shit.
Kode9’s interview with the same Big Shot will follow nex’ month.
After their performance at the Clandestino Festival a couple years ago, I asked them about how things were proceeding with the follow up to the Memories of the Future album. ¨It´s coming.¨ However a serious illness got in the way, however all is now good, and they will return with a new album, titled ´Black Sun´ will be released in April, via Hyperdub. Prepare your speakers and family for sub-driven poetic insightful observations.
Power switch ON.
