Silhouette Brown – Leave A Note

The news about the upcoming album from Silhouette Brown is still fresh and as of today there’s a first preview to listen to. Titled “Leave A Note”, the track features all trademark sounds fans of Dego and Kaidi have come to love, on the vocals it’s once again Philadelphia’s Lady Alma.

Wherever you look, you will come across a different release date. It seems the album will be out in Japan on January 15th, with the rest of the world following around the 9th of February.

Lady Alma – I Can't Help It

Once again it’s Mark de Clive-Lowe who is taking over, this time producing a track for the upcoming album from Philly’s Lady Alma.

Originally recorded by Michael Jackson and taken from his Off the Wall LP, the track pays homage to the recently passed-away singer. You can download the MP3 in high quality from Mark’s SoundCloud page.

Blakai recording with Lady Alma

Following the posting about the new Blakai Productions are two videos from their recording sessions. They have been recorded at the old Bugz studio (where Goya Music was residing) in November 2006. On footage are the recordings for a yet unreleased track with Philadelphia’s Lady Alma. Kaidi Tatham is playing the keys, while Mark Force does all the Logic work.

Blakai Productions 2009

Mark Force and Kaidi Tatham are both members of the Bugz in the Attic collective, but they also produce music together under the name of Blakai. So far there have been two 12-inches and another track on Dego’s The Good Good 3. Other tracks like a collaboration with Lady Alma were played at the Co-Op nights, but never made it being released.

However, Mark has mixed together a couple of tracks for the Blakai Productions 2009 mixtape. It runs only about 5 minutes, but it’s something you want to keep until a new release shows up.
