We`re pleased to present our new subsidiary label Brown Rice to the world! The label has its HQ in London and is run by our crew there. The name is a homage to the late Don Cherry’s great album with the same name, and Don is both the link and the connection between all of us involved in the label. And not least is he also a big inspiration!
Thank you for listening!

Last fall, Neneh Cherry made an exciting announcement – she was returning with her first album of solo material in more than 16 years. A collaboration with RocketNumberNine, and produced by Four Tet, the ten-track album, titled Blank Project, was recorded and mixed in five days. Today, Neneh reveals the lead single, “Out of the Black” featuring kindred spiritRobyn.
“Out of the Black” features Neneh and Robyn harmonizing together and throwing lines back and forth. Production by Four Tet and minimal synth and drum work by RocketNumberNine underpin the sweet vocal work of the two iconic Swedish artists. Before now, the two have been vocal about inspiring each other, with Robyn covering Neneh’s songs in her live shows. One need only check the history of Neneh putting a subversive foot forward and letting popular music catch up. Growing up around father Don Cherry’s friends Miles Davis and Allen Ginsburg, she launched her solo career with a Falkland’s protest song called “Stop The War.” In the early 80s, she was in the pioneering multi-ethnic, anarchic, post-punk group, Rip Rig + Panic; she brought hip-hop culture to a British audience with “Buffalo Stance” (redefining cool by performing pregnant on “Top of the Pops”) and had the first global hit to feature the Senegalese language, Wolof, “7 Seconds.” With “Out of the Black” featuring Robyn and a remix by dance floor maven Joe Goddard (Hot Chip, 2Bears) still to come, Neneh is emerging out of the black with another vital blast of buzzing cold music.« go back — keep looking »
