Savage Gary - Quarantine Sampler 2

$16.00
Description

When COVID hit – bringing bands into the studio wasn’t an option for the recent award-winning Speedy Wunderground label started an ongoing project called ‘THE QUARANTINE SERIES’ in which label co-owner Dan Carey under his ‘Savage Gary’ techno/electronic alter ego collaborated with artists and friends, old and new over the internet and then uploaded them to the labels Soundcloud/socials with little or no fanfare – no PR-ing or radio pluggers, just letting them do their own thing, organically.

The label have already released one 12” sampler as part of the Love Record Stores campaign that took place earlier in the year. ‘Quarantine Sampler 2’ will also have an accompanying proper digital release.

‘We chose two tracks/artists that I think we really wanted to shed some more light on’ says label co- runner Pierre Hall. ‘Two that we really didn’t want to go under the radar – and in our opinion reflect this parallel strand of the label that’s forming – with new artists we’re really excited about – and that will hopefully draw people in to explore the series as a whole.’

First on the release is ‘Wait & See’ from rising Bajan artist RoRo. A hypnotic masterful flow which meanders seamlessly around Carey’s pulsating electronics. It’s bursting with attitude and originality. "I saw Dan Carey play with Kae Tempest on one of my first few times ever being out in London" she says, "it was such an amazing show. I was extremely excited to then get the chance to work with him.
I'd been trying to do so while in London, but it didn't quite work out that way. We did manage to make it happen remotely whilst I was back in Barbados though, and we knocked it out!"

Second is ‘Cigarettes Pt. 2’ from the enigmatic Londoner youngblackmale AKA Rutare Savage: "It’s a poem, transformed into a song by the ever amazing Dan Carey. It touches (lightly) upon the topics of fear of the police, drug and alcohol abuse, family, and pulling oneself out of a nihilistic worldview driven by a newfound lust for life. This is me trying to reason with the void."

‘We’re really proud of both of these. It’s an exciting time to be part of Speedy’ says Hall. ‘As it’s always been – this thing is driving us, not the other way around.’
