We’re really excited to be working on a new project with our friends at French label, Jarring Effects. The project, ‘Cape Town Effects’, is a cross-continental collaboration between music producers, musicians, emcees and visual artists. The project is due to be released in May 2013, along with multiple European tours, workshops and exhibitions. The show will debut at the highly prestigious Nuits Sonores festival in Lyon.
We have been working with Jarring Effects since 2005 when we released music on ‘Cape Town Beats‘. Since then, we have released 2 full Ben Sharpa albums (‘B. Sharpa‘ and ‘4th Density Light Show‘) as well as contributions to various compilations. Jarring Effects have also facilitated numerous international tours.
‘Cape Town Effects’ is a celebration of Jarring Effects’ 10 years of involvement with Cape Town’s independent music scene and we are proud to be part of it. The project features Led Piperz (Dub Invaders, High Tone), Dplanet (Pure Solid), Big Space, Jaak, El Nino (Driemanskap), Konfab, Tebz, Ben Sharpa & spo0ky (Pure Solid). The project will be overseen by Jarring Effects’ studio boss, Lenfant (R;zatz).
We are currently recording at Red Bull Studios in Cape Town. Big up to Richard, Steve, Jake and Ivan as always!
Also, a big thanks to Aki from Eastern Acoustics for supplying us with a whole host of pro audio gear, including some beautiful Focal Twin6 Be monitors, for the duration of recording.
