This June, Wolf + Lamb will drop the thrilling, game-changing album from Deniz Kurtel & The Marcy All Stars ‘The Way We Live’ but first comes ‘The Singles’ showcasing three glowing collaborations with Tanner Ross, Voices Of Black and PillowTalk.
Effortlessly weaving entirely new sub-genres, while daring to convey their fragility, Deniz is once again inventing a fresh sound palette, combining the music with visual art and creating a deeper live experience for the tour entitled ‘Double Exposure’ that will accompany her new LED installation, ‘The Introspectacular’. Mastering a new dexterity across the whole album, Deniz conquers stillness and rich rhythms, once again turning house on its head with an unhurried approach more in line with a hip hop pacing that enriches the sound of tomorrow, bringing attitude back to electronic music. Going beyond the realms of the expected, the striking artistic passion emanating from this petite girl from Turkey beats through every track.
With a collaborative approach typical to the Wolf + Lamb label, the artists featured are part of the tight-knit yet loosely woven family collective now termed the Marcy All Stars. Much akin to the Wild Bunch (the early Massive Attack) or Soul II Soul, their visions are explored and shaped through a fluid, dynamic and supportive experience. On the EP’s selected tracks, Deniz, along with hotly tipped producers Tanner Ross, San Francisco’s PillowTalk and the young Brown university graduates Voices of Black, deliver an array of moods and sounds - from sensually sublime album opener ‘I Knew This Would Happen’ in a special extended version to the jazz infused ‘The Beat Drops’, full of deep atmosphere and heavy bass groove and animated 80s funk of ‘Thunder Clap’.
