The first collaborative journey of Canadian musicians Venetian Snares and Daniel Lanois. Started out of mutual respect for one another’s work which led to several years of creative germination resulting in this eight-track full-length exploration released May 4th on Timesig/Planet Mu.
East Man is a new project from Anthoney Hart and its material predates his previous work as Basic Rhythm. His unique take on grime reduces the sound to its steely fundamentals, bringing in influences from dancehall, drum and bass and techno to gird the voices of the MCs he works with. His own name for this hardcore continuum mongrel is 'Hi Tek'.
