Bless up fam’.
Just thought I’d share something with you quickly. After releasing one of the finest collections of music the dubstep community has seen in 2011, Author has announced their second LP, titled ‘Forward Forever’, which is due for release on Black Box records towards the end of June. According to FACT Mag:
“In June, the Leeds producers will team up once again for a new album, Forward Forever. The record promises a more “natural-feeling, organic vibe”, and points to Ninja Tune favourites The Cinematic Orchestra and Bonobo as key influences. Guest spots are promised from UK hip-hop face Jehst and battle regular Stig Of The Dump. Black Canvas’ Rider Shafique, last heard on Kahn’s ‘Late Night Blues’, will also appear, as will reggae vocalist Dan Man.”
They’ve been kind enough to release a preview from one of the tracks off the album, as well as put together a mix to celebrate the announcement. I’ve listed both below. Listeners can rest assured that this album will be of much acclaim throughout the rest of the year, and will likely attain a timelessness similar to the self-titled ‘Author’ LP released on Tectonic. I will keep this page updated as time goes along. Keep your eyes peeled!
