Davidge – Slo Light (label TBA)

Posted on February 23, 2014 in english, featured album, Music

‘Slo Light’, the stunning debut album by Davidge, AKA award-winning producer/musician Neil Davidge, renowned previously for his production, co-writing and sonic-sculpting of music for Massive Attack, David Bowie,Snoop Dog, Damon Albarn, Primal Scream, Elizabeth Fraser and Mos Def, plus the hugely successful Halo 4game score and soundtrack. An album deeply-schooled in Bristol beats, electronica, soundtracks, orchestral music and more, ‘Slo Light’ creates a fantasy world in which tension, darkness and beauty find the perfect equilibrium. The album is sky-high on production value, with an unparalleled clarity and sonic depth typical of Davidge’s unique sound.Launching the album’s epic journey is title-track ‘Slo Light’, which features vocals from the Davidge-discovered New York singer Stephonik Youth, and clearly demonstrates Neil’s stamp on latter Massive Attack albums. The video trailer was directed and shot by Gustavo Andrade for China Dolls Films and was co-directed and starred-in by singer and collaborator, Stephonik Youth (whose band Living Days are signed to Dave Sitek’s label Federal Prism).
The album was written by Davidge with contributions from his studio right-hand-man Andrew Morgan, in collaboration with the guest vocalists. The pair played most of the instrumental parts themselves, with strings from The Bristol Ensemble. Designed by Stephen Kitchen, the ‘Slo Light’ album inner sleeves features geometric shapes that are individual aesthetic interpretations of each track, and the cover art is a phosphorescent design of a similar nature. Following years of industry respect and renown, ‘Slo Light’ is primed to be the record that brings Davidge to the ears and minds of many discerning music lovers, as a figure of talent and vision, who’ll appeal to fans of sound-exploring producer/artists like Brian Eno, Trent Reznor, Moby and William Orbit.
