Voices of Black
New York // Wolf + Lamb | Double Standard
Voices of Black is an American duo consisting of Julian ‘Jules Born’ Randolph and Baba Doherty. Randolph and Doherty first met in high school and began recording music together as teenagers. After spending the last few years touring Europe, Latin America and the US as DJs, the 23 year olds are ready to establish themselves as an original live act.
In 2009, Voices of Black self-released their initial departure from their hip hop roots ‘Tomorrow’s Today’. In 2010 they were introduced to the NYC based record label and artistic collective known as Wolf+Lamb by Nicolas Jaar, a former classmate of Doherty. VOB then released what they called an „experimental house beat tape” entitled ‘Plastic Dolls’. The project drew inspiration from eclectic sources such as underground hip hop, disco, soul, ambient and electronic dance music. The album was inspired by their fascination with supermodel Anna Beatriz Barros and the modeling industry as a whole.
The union between fashion and VOB became solidified when fashion powerhouse Yves Saint Laurent selected the duo’s unreleased song „Streets Run Red” for their 2012 Summer/Spring online campaign. The British based All Saints retail stores followed suit by playing VOB at their international locations. Veteran artists Little Dragon and Questlove of The Roots have taken notice of the duo, promoting their music through social media and on stage.
Their next release, on Gadi Mizrahi’s Double Standard Records, is an EP that builds on the unrestricted, innovative sound of ‘Plastic Dolls’. The EP features two new tracks ‘Have You ToMyself’ and ‘Take Back Soho’, with remixes from Tanner Ross and Ryan Cavanagh aka Slow Hands.
Shortly after, the duo released the „Her Flower” EP with their friend and French counterpart Rap Lisa. Progressing into more of a traditional song format less than half a year later they then released the single „Atom Bomb” – a more pop driven song with spacey sounds and a hybrid of genres.
When the two aren’t DJ’ing or performing live, the duo keeps busy working on artistic collaborations to provide a full sensory experience for their listeners. VOB is also collaborating with many other artists and producing projects. Listeners and fans await a full-length album from Voices of Black, with high hopes for the fearless duo.
Voices of Black subscribe to the principles of their self-developed philosophy, Yarchism. They are often preaching this message of “Yarch” to their fans, but what does it mean? Yarchism is the practice of freely accessing and projecting one’s subconscious mind. Yarchism is devoid of censorship or fear. Yarchism is uninhibited freedom of expression. Yarchism is everything that is said and unsaid. Voices of Black uses Yarchism not only to inspire others but also to guide their artistic integrity and innovation. YTTM.
Milano // Ovum | Culprit | Hot Waves | Manocalda
Italian based djs and producers Dirty Channels are Simone & Leme. They started working together in the early 2008 when, after a long period as single djs, they discovered a great musical feeling. Their debut on the historic italian label Manocalda brought up their collaboration with Pastaboys and proved to be an essential introduction for these guys, with releases and remixes with various labels such as Rebirth, Reincarnation, Bcbtec… always supported by big international artists.
Dirty Channels recently released for renowned labels like Jamie Jones’ Hot Waves / Hot Creations, Josh Wink’s Ovum and the LA based Culprit. Thanks to these tracks they climbed up Beatport and Resident Advisor charts, and they were included into playlists of top djs such as Pete Tong, Kerri Chandler, Maya Jane Coles and many others.
Being heavily inspired by a lot of artists, Dirty Channels tracks are a unique mix of deep old school house, detroit techno, disco influenced jams, and classic grooves. The variety of musical influences turns into an eclectic dj set, never dull with a great charge perceived and loved by the floor. This is why they’re playing in a lot of important European clubs and events.
