£11.00 / Sold Out
Housed in re-purposed sleeves and mastered by Basic House man Stephen Bishop. Limited to 300.
Gnod's Marlene Ribeiro - aka Negra Branca - opens the door to a murky, seductive world of looping wonder and harmony. Like Yong Yong and later day Hype Williams, Ribeiro's deconstruction of pop and beat forms takes in a hauntological sentiment, picking up samples from world musics and obscure recordings to weave into the impeccably dope beat patterns.
What sets Negra Branca apart from other Dadaist electronic fiends is the liberal use she makes of her voice - unafraid to reveal a little of the strings behind the artifice. NB is an important work and one to revel in endlessly, like a maze of post-ecstasy glow.
