lyrics

Come The Revolution

I’ve always been confused by the prevailing view of hip hop as either violent, misogynist or rabidly consumerist music. I know that part of the hip hop world has gone that way, just as Reggae did in the late 80s, but for me both styles will always be first and foremost protest music. So many of the records that have influenced me the most politically and socially have been hip hop records - Public Enemy, The Disposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy, Akala, Spearhead, Tribe Called Quest, De La Soul, Nena Cherry, The Roots… loads of music that has taught me about the world and fired my desire to be part of making it better.

The first time I got to make music that was explicitly influenced by hip hop was the beginnings of my project with Divinity last year, and that was the major reason why I shifted from a ‘bass only’ approach to my solo one to one that incorporated drums, keys and found sound samples via the Quneo - that influence has carried on in every project I’ve been a part of since, and here again, the hip hop is to the fore. Come The Revolution is a tribute to all those musical and political revolutionaries whose words lit a fire under me. Long may it continue.

about

Steve Lawson UK

The UK's most celebrated solo bassist, here with lots of looped/layered solo albums, & collaborations, most notably with genius singer Lobelia. Dig in deep, there's a lot to discover.

Pretty much all the music here is 'Pay What You Think It's Worth', so listen as much as you like, & do what it says on the tin...

As the website strap-line goes, it's the soundtrack to the day you wish you'd had.
