NEW MUSIC // Skinny Pelembe reveals single and debut album

24th April 2019

Skinny Pelembe has revealed a brand new track – and the details of his long-awaited debut album. 

‘Dreaming Is Dead Now’ is the title track from the album to be released via Brownswood Recordings – listen to our podcast with Gilles Peterson’s label here. 

Skinny Pelembe found inspiration for the track from his dream diary, with lyrics reflecting a pessimistic and challenged Britain. 

Working with a duo of drum & bass artists who adopted the alias of The Bleeding Edge – ‘Dreaming Is Dead Now’ is grounded by a dub-heavy bass-line, with breathy textures to balance. Rolling arpeggios and a vocoder melody make for an eerie, post-apocalyptic lullaby. 

Ahead of the album’s release on 24 May, check out the leading track, ‘Dreaming Is Dead Now’, just released by Skinny Pelembe.
