Once again, the ILM or Independent Label Market is almost upon us. And this time we’ll be touching down in Bristol. This will be our 2nd such event, and to be able to do so in a city that we’ve always wanted to visit will be an absolute pleasure.
What should you expect you might ask. Well firstly, you can expect a real farmer’s market vibe to the whole fiasco. Secondly we’ll be setting up a stall full of music and jewellery offerings in partnership with upstart jewellers, Boho Lavaliere by Bernadett Marina Makula. And lastly, there’ll awesome merch and special edition offerings from the likes of Lex, !K7, Big Dada, Ninja Tune, and your favourite labels from Bristol.
So Roots Manuva is back with a bang. Calling upon the production talents of Four Tet, Facety is an ambitious song and does not easily fall within the confines of ‘traditional’ Hip Hop; but who’s really making so called traditional Hip Hop these days?
Four Tet is a very diverse individual indeed. Not only is he expected to deliver music under his current moniker, but he also has to think about running his record label Text Records, through which he also releases projects under the pseudonym Percussions. So it begs the question; when does he actually find the time to pull off something like this?
