Get Ready for NEW MUSIC by Naomi Braun, with the Launch of her new full length album 'Through the Devils Wood', a milkshake of soul, dub, hip-hop, electro and spoken word. People often liken Naomi’s vocal abilities to that of Erykah Badu, Little Dragon, Portishead and Moloko, and the album has production styles akin to that of Massive Attack. She has created a style of music sure to get your hips swaying with juicy delicious beats.
Alongside LOTEK supporting her with his established following, British born with Jamaican lineage, Lotek is known as the "Ska Revivalist".
He brings a fast paced skank and a big horn sound to the mix and with his 5 piece band. His grime and hip hop MCing talent cuts across the rhythms and eggs on the crowd, and with his encyclopaedic knowledge of reggae and hip hop he clearly knows how the music can intersect. After all, hip hop comes from reggae. He's cutting out the middle man. He has collaborated with the likes of Seal, Leftfield and Take That before moving on and becoming a regular at the Big Dada and Ninja Tunes label with his own work and most recently with hip hop superstar Roots Manuva, Hilltop Hoods and in 2009 Mercury Prize winner for Speech Debelle's album, Speech Therapy.
Naomi has worked alongside a few well known artists on the album. Sly and Robbie are Jamaican reggae music extrodinaires who have worked with No Doubt, Grace Jones and many more credible artists.
LOTEK has also worked with her in the studio, mixing and beat making for the current release. Get ready for a musical explosion!
