Artist: Obba Supa Title: W.I.D.E. Guests: Anthony Drawn Release: 24.04.2015 Format: Vinyl EP + digital Cat.nr.: SE032
The akronym »W.I.D.E.« stands for »Window Into Dark Edits«. The name of the new Obba Supa EP speaks for itself. Friends of the London duo are used to such images, created with their music. The recent release of the album »FOR:AM« soundes dark and spheric, too. Nevertheless, producer Hey!zeus.i had ellaborated a warm and organic sound, while »W.I.D.E.« sounds stone cold and lost. Strong delay fx on the vocals and synthetic drum sounds dominate the slow but yet intensive arrangements. Connecting those elemets, the five track EP crosses genre borders, mixing Industrial with Boom Bap and Cloud Rap. The lyrics of the duo perfectly fit into the dark soundscape: Teknical Development and Hey.zeus.i present a soundtrack to a dystopian World, ranging somewhere in beetween a nightmare and urban realities.
»W.I.D.E.« will be the first part of a three piece EP series by Obba Supa that will be released via Sichtexot. »W.I.D.E.« will be available on 12” vinyl and digital on April 24th.
