PETITE NOIR - Video and Mix


yannick.jpg

Here is the video for PETITE NOIR - TILL WE GHOSTS.



This is just outstanding stuff. I am really looking forward to the full release.

In their own words....


"Till We Ghosts is the stunning debut single on Bad Life from Capetown based producer Yannick Iluga aka Petite Noir. He crafts his innovative sound alone with live instruments and electronics; his remarkable voice underpinned by forward thinking production.


A unique concoction of influences, Petite Noir is able to seamlessly fuse intricate contemporary electronics with his stirring, soulful vocal and African shuffles that echo is homeland."




You also need to check out a mix he did for Okayafrica.

The return of the Sol Sessions!




Years ago I started (and never finished) making a series of mix "tapes" I called the Sol Sessions. They were basically collections of songs that I thought people should hear. Some were very obscure and hard to find...others were just deep cuts off albums that were somewhat popular. The point was that these were all songs by bands I felt didn't get the love they deserved.

Here are the first three volumes of the Sol Sessions.

Volume 4 will be up very soon. I hope you enjoy these!!

Been Away - Back Soon

 

















I would just like to let you all know that I have had some health issues (I had to have emergency open heart surgery!) and have been recovering over the past 6 weeks. I am on the mend (doing very well) and posting will begin again this weekend.

I hope you all are having a great summer and I think you will all love the mixes, videos and tunes that I have to post!

Thanks for the continued support and I look forward to many more years of posting to come!

Cheers,

Sol (Phil)
