Homecut - No Freedom Without Sacrifice



Homecut No Freedom Without Sacrifice
Homecut - No Freedom Without Sacrifice
(Limited Edition 7" / Download) First Word Records FW29, 2009-05-18

This album is the creative brainchild of Testament alongside a guest list including Soweto Kinch (Mercury Music Prize nominee), Corinne Bailey Rae (Grammy Winner), J-Live (Rawkus / BBE), Andreya Triana (Flying Lotus / Bonobo), John Ellis (Cinematic Orchestra), kidKANEVIL (Statless) and Ty (Mercury Music Prize Nominee). An album with too many highlights to mention - from the futuristic soul of 'Participant' to the highlife hip hop of 'Harmony' and lead single 'I Don't Even Know', this is a record bursting with invention, ideas and real music.

Press Release :
"He is a party starter and a pioneer. This is a great unconventional record with a broad scope - I'd hate to miss out on anything he is doing." - Corinne Bailey Rae

This album is the creative brainchild of Testament alongside a guest list including Soweto Kinch (Mercury Music Prize nominee), Corinne Bailey Rae (Grammy Winner), J-Live (Rawkus / BBE), Andreya Triana (Flying Lotus / Bonobo), John Ellis (Cinematic Orchestra), kidKANEVIL (Statless) and Ty (Mercury Music Prize Nominee).

Homecut is the creative alter-ego of Testament, an emcee, musician and producer who has been a key part of the British / Northern music scene for the last 10 years. You may have seen him hosting two of the UK's biggest nights: New Bohemia and The Tuesday Club. Or maybe it's from his role in Shlomo's Vocal Orchestra, or perhaps you saw him beatboxing with Ray Parker Junior on TV. Or meeting Desmond Tutu. Or fronting the kidKANEVIL live show. Or performing live with some of the UK's finest – Jehst, Steve Brown (Cinematic Orchestra), Quantic, The Haggis Horns, Mark Ronson, Andreya Triana, Jarvis Cocker and Klashnekoff (to name but a few).

If you haven't come across Homecut, take a listen to the tracks and get to know a man who's as equally influenced by Kurt Vonnegut or The Rockford Files as he is by Public Enemy.

This is an album with too many highlights to mention – from the futuristic soul of ‘Participant' to the highlife hip hop of ‘Harmony' this is a record bursting with invention, ideas and real music. It is the essence of a real music scene, with real people and real songwriting. With a lyrical breadth that takes in Persian tea houses, Apartheid, sex lines, Shepherd's Pie and the paintings of Lowry this isn't an ordinary album.
