Cop This

Alex James might be a Tory twat but his ex (?) bandmate Damon Albarn doesn't seem to spend his free time swanning around with prize shitehawks such as Jeremy Clarkson & David Cameron.

No, the ex (?) lead singer of Blur has gathered together a top selection of electronic producers to contribute to this compilation described below.

"Kinshasa One Two was recorded in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo over 5 days this past July. DRC Music (a collective of producers gathered by Damon Albarn) set out to make an album with contemporary Congolese musicians and worked with more than 50 local performers including Jupiter and the Okwess InternationalBokatola System and Nelly LiyemgeDRC Music is comprised of producers: T-E-E-D (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs)Dan The AutomatorJneiro JarelRichard RussellActress,Marc AntoineAlwestRemi KabakaRodaidh McDonald and Kwes, with album artwork by Aitor Throup and Hardy Blechman. The Democratic Republic of Congo has long been wracked by conflict and is home to one of the world's worst humanitarian crises. Proceeds from the album will benefit the local performers and Oxfam's work in Congo."

"We feel incredibly fortunate to be involved in the journey that culminated in Kinshasa One Two. It's completely, brilliantly, unlike anything Warp has undertaken before, but nonetheless feels like a very natural endeavour for us to be a part of. We're supremely grateful to all the artists, musicians and producers who joined together to create this amazing record and shared a vision of contributing in some small way to benefit the people of the DRC."
