My new EP dropped a week ago today on @vrbluk Records - critics have said this body of work is the voice of a generation - sonically it is the beautiful blend of Jim Morrison before he got fat mixed with Aggro Santos. Pitchfork gave it 11/10 and Antony Fantano refused to review it because he wants to keep it as a personal, secret gem close to his heart. Listen to it asap on Spotify, Soundcloud, Bandcamp, Apple Music and soon to come limited run of pure gold Mini Discs. #ukhh#ukrap#london#bristolhiphop#syllab#yanaku#broadley
This is the artwork for ‘RADIO’, an album of instrumental beats by #AlgernonCornelius due to be released on C-60 cassette tape via @thiscityisours for International Cassette Store Day on Saturday 14th October 2017. The sleeve was designed by artist @tommings and features an old photograph and me and my little brother @equiano91 (he’s the one chewing the cable). The tracks on RADIO were produced between 2011 and 2015, half of them were made using Cubase and are the last AlgernonCornelius songs to be made using that software. The other half were made using Ableton through a generative sampling process, which involved putting my entire music library on shuffle and dragging in each track that played. From these random and disparate tracks I found elements in each of them that worked with the other and began to build up new tracks, tweaking them until they resembled a beat that banged.
RADIO is of the same lineage as my debut - ‘Happiness’, and is a regressive adventure into childhood imagination, albeit tainted by the realities of adulthood. Nostalgia comes at a price, and that’s often the cost of experience. Like VHS tapes, memories suffer generation loss, but can you imagine if you could dial in to catch the most thrilling parts and make your own story? Maybe these broken toys are worth keeping.
