Holdin' Court: Benaddict + Support
BENADDICT returns to Reading for only his second time at Holdin' Court this September 22nd!
At the end of May this year Benaddict released his greatly anticipated debut album The Garden Of England on Yogocop Records featuring NuphZed, Omaure, Ella Mae, Awfer, Brontë Shande and Illiterate. Half of the album is self-produced with other production credits going to Dil Maddy, Mr Slipz, Gonza, Ded Tebiase, Wundrop & M.KOZI. We've had it on heavy rotation here at HCHQ and highly recommend giving it a listen before joining us down at Readipop for the show!
Also dropping this month (August), is Teal. Teal is a collaborative project between 3 artists hailing from the sunny South of England. This album is made up of Slim & Ella Mae, who both recently featured on Gilles Peterson's latest compilation on Brownswood Recordings, and Benaddict. Together the trio has combined their talents and put together this soulful, jazz tinged, 12 track LP.
Slim laces the album with his signature style of laid back, jazzy production, while Benaddict & Ella Mae provide us with humble, heartfelt and thought provoking lyrics and vocals throughout. Featuring Harvs, who has collaborated with Remulak on several occasions, on the brutally honest ‘On How To Waste Time’ & Little George Sueref playing Harmonica on ‘Evans’
Teal comes out on 28th August and is available for pre order as of the 21st. limited run of 300 LP’s with teal OBI strip designed by Mr Krum, with photos by Sam Barrett & artwork by Remulak.
All support to be announced.
