Richie Pits – Ye Fre Mi Richy Pitch by strangefruitmusic

Filed under: Afrobeat, music, Uncategorized | Tags: ,

Borrowed this from: Tropical Bass:

The LP “Ye Fre Mi Richy Pitch” (They call me Richy Pitch in Twi) is the fruit of a two-year stay of producer and DJ, Richy Pitch from UK in Ghana, West Africa, a land with amazing musical cultures and traditions.
He recorded with local stars and talent and fused the classic sound of Ghanaian music with his own production skills.

This LP presents different styles of Ghanaian and West African music from Highlife, Hiplife to Afrobeat to traditional percussion music, all combined with a fresh production twist.

It features the cream of Ghanaian music talent including MOBO and MTV Africa winner Samini,Reggie Rockstone, known as the Godfather of Hiplife and talented MC’s such as Wanlov the KubolorM3NSA and M.anifest, and many more inspiring Ghanaian artists.

Since Richy Pitch comes from a Hip Hop background it is just natural that many tracks are Rap tunes: Pidgin Rap with lyrics in English, Twi, Fante and Ga. However this album is more than a just another Hip Hop LP: “Ninsuo” and “Abanaba” both sung by Kwesi Dankwa are true Palmwine Highlife pieces, “Odo Yea” by Gouda is a traditional percussion song, in “Dey Suffer” Yasmeen with her incredibly soulful voice gives a critical statement about the emigration out of Africa, and “Dey Craze” is a very funky kind of Afrobeat Rap tune.
And then there is “We’re Taking Over” that starts like a radio show, turns out to be a Rap tune with DJ Black on the mic, then Samini takes over and does justice to his title as one of Africa’s greatest Dancehall artists and in the end a third beat comes in and it all starts to sound pretty much like Soca!

The LP “Ye Fre Mi Richy Pitch” is to be released on BBE Records in June 2010.
It is a versatile LP that gives a great insight to the Ghanaian music scene. It is packed with lots of fine humour, energy and a great fusion of modern and traditional sounds, fat beats and beautiful voices from Ghana that tell the listeners a lot about their live and homeland – and you don’t even have to understand Twi to feel them!
For all those who can’t wait until June, go and get the single “Black Star” feat. M.anifest (see video above) that will already be available in all download stores by the end of April.

Jamie Lidell has one of those voices that is completely irresistible, and his live shows are no different as he is known for layering tracks made with his voice into a microphone and performing the percussion and melody as a sequenced one man band. His upcoming album “Compass” is set for release on May 18th, and its title track has already become a favorite of us.

P.E. Hewitt Jazz Ensemble by strangefruitmusic

P.E. Hewitt’s Winter Winds is one of the rarest damn-good 70s jazz albums you could ever hope to come across. That’s a subtle, but important distinction. There are many rare jazz albums in every imaginable subgenre – funk, free, fusion… But Hewitt, a composer, arranger, vibraphonist, pianist and pilot, helmed a crack group of musicians and recorded adamn-good album … Without ever taking the time out to name his record company. His three albums – pressed in a maximum run of one hundred pieces per album – recently surfaced after Bay Area collector Chris Veltri re-discovered an old find and sent music detectives on the hunt. You see, Hewitt’s “Winter Winds” album so damn-good that neither a micro press nor forty years of silence could suppress its reemergence.

Yes Mrs Fatbellybella took it there and to think that I thought that after the CD dropped (every Badu fan in Europe including me is already the proud owner of Return of the Ankh) the buzz would wind down.

But this is Mrs Badu and I should’ve known…the buzz never stops. It’s not just the blogs and gossip columns but even Twitter is blowin up because of all the Badu fan tweets. Luckily for us pinboardblog took the time to gather the most important tweets…Badu’s tweets on the window seat video. Take it from will not believe what you are about to read. But since I already read them…three words…Badu is Fierce. Enjoy!!
