APRIL 13TH 2018: DOUBLE ALBUM LP + CD DIGIPACK RELEASE!

ENGLISH:

Ghetto Cycle is the soundtrack of Charlie P’s life, set to music by O.B.F.

Meeting up with Charlie P and Rico from O.B.F in a studio is like diving into a particle accelerator operating at full speed. Lively, hyperactive, hardworking, Southend’s MC and the greatest warrior of French sound systems just can’t stay put.

Their creativity works continuously: riddims, melodies, lyrics, clip concepts and other fantasies spurt out at top speed. These common traits allow them to produce explosive collaborations, both on stage and in the studio.

After the success of the singles “Dub Controler” and “Sixteen Tons of Pressure”, the launch of an album became self-evident. Coming from a modest background in a remote London suburb, Charlie P has been through a lot before understanding that his passion for music could be a vehicle for emancipation. It is this life trajectory, punctuated by difficulties, pitfalls, hard work, encounters and challenges that he tells through the tracks of “Ghetto Cycle”.

Conceived as a concentrate of joint influences, this album gathers tracks in the purest digital dub vein, but also reggae, dance or downright grime. A new stage in the development of their collaboration.

FRANCAIS:

Ghetto Cycle, c’est la bande son de la vie de Charlie P, mise en musique par O.B.F.

Se retrouver en studio avec Charlie P et Rico d’O.B.F revient à plonger sa tête dans un accélérateur de particules lancé à pleine vitesse. Remuants, hyperactifs, bosseurs, le MC de Southend et le plus warrior des soundsystems français ne tiennent littéralement pas en place.

Leur créativité fonctionne en continu: riddims, mélodies, paroles, concepts de clip et autres élucubrations fusent à toute vitesse. Ces traits de caractère communs leurs permettent de proposer des collaborations explosives, autant sur scène qu’en studio.

Après le succès rencontré par les singles « Dub Controler » et « Sixteen Tons Of Pressure », la mise en route d’un album s’est imposée comme une évidence. Originaire d’un milieu modeste de la banlieue lointaine londonienne, Charlie P en a vu de toutes les couleurs avant de comprendre que sa passion pour la musique pouvait être un vecteur d’émancipation. C’est ce parcours de vie, jalonné de difficultés, d’écueils, de dur labeur, de rencontres et de défis qu’il relate au fil des pistes de « Ghetto Cycle ».

Conçu comme un concentré d’influences communes, cet album rassemble des titres dans la plus pure veine dub digital, mais aussi reggae, dancehall ou carrément grime. Une nouvelle étape dans le développement de leur collaboration.
