Eyedentity - SEE

SEE (ELM8023)

Eyedentity are here. Not so much a group as an ever-changing collective consciousness, comprising the talents of 'coming and going' featured artists. In short, an ever-evolving entity, the central nerve centre being The Factor (son of Jazz bassist Walter Booker and the nephew of Jazz saxophonist, Wayne Shorter) and dB (daughter of vocalist Flora Purim and percussionist Airto Moreira).
The combined talent of these artists produced this excellent debut album released in May 2000. Taking trip-hop into unchartered territory 'See' combines a variety of musical flavours and multicultural influences to yield something a little more hop than trip, infusing the genre with a new perspective. Dissolving categorical boundaries and pushing ahead of populist trends Eyedentity are eclectic, infinitely inventive, and with another album in the pipeline definitely one to watch.

altBusi Mhlongo We Baba Omncane (in the Mix) 1947 -2010

"Ranked alongside Miriam Makeba, Letta Mbulu and The Mahotella Queens, ‘Mam’ Busi Mhlongo was the first female artist to spread the Maskanda vocal style internationally. South Africa’s President, Jacob Zuma, lamented her passing and declared her “a true legend”. Just as the hopes of the South African people are dashed on the football pitch the nation has also been deprived of one its greatest voices. On 15 June 2010, at the age of 62, the ‘Urban Zulu’ – Busi Mhlongo - finally lost her battle against breast cancer. "    (Paul Bradshaw / Straight No Chaser) This is a remix tribute by the new generation of South African Hosue producers featuring contribution by the new cream of South African house producers like Blaq Soul, Nkokhi, Infinite Boys, Funk Daddy, Top Shayela, Sumthyn Black and European masters Rocco and Gabriel Le Mar.
