After numerous features and collaborations Obenewa, Kaidi Tatham and dego combine together to form Blacks & Blues.Three song based dance tracks to fill the void of underground vocal club music.
'Spin' is flavoured with S.A house & afrobeatz whilst Obenewa sings about the wonder that is love. 'You Know The Feeling' moves towards the funk that is synonymous with 2000Black and 'Don't Know Why (chant for love)' is purely the marriage between reggae and jazz.

Marvin Jupiter is an 18 year old artist who mainly makes hip-hop music, using bass lines as rhythms more associated with funk. He uses and creates the sound of the modern day interpretation of trap adding his own personal twist.
'Reach' is a rendition of the typical "house" genre including rhythms sampled from South American cultures, using current sounds from the "trap genre" even having a small section of a "trap/hip-hop" beat towards the end of the song.
On the B-side you can hear the boogie & funk through a dego & Lord remix

Release Date: 6th August 2021
The sound of optimism in the midst of battle. A bold, impassioned cry – railing against the forces of greed at their depth of their depravity. A statement of Socialist intent and rejection of all musical conformity. 20th Century Music - as there has been no 21st. The story hasn't ended and shows no sign of doing so. Beauty is truth, truth beauty said Keats - and all you need to know. No illusion. No lies. The clarity of identity. The teaming of Blackness and Neurodiversity and the manifold combination to be found within. Matt Lord and dego lead us away from avarice and onwards to Joy. Better than pleasure.
