Raw energy on Dreadsquad and Blackout JA’s World Destruction

SF032-artwork-world-destruction-1000x10001Gravel-voiced UK chanter Blackout JA has joined forces with eclectic Polish producer Dreadsquad on the aptly titled set World Destruction, an album where Blackout JA rages against corruption, police brutality and poverty.

Two singles have so far been lifted from World Destruction and they showcases two completely different sonic landscapes. Last Tune is a hard and heavy UK steppers cut designed to mash up sound system dances, while the Edwyn Collins cover A Girl Like You is delicate and gracious with its elegant melodica and slick organ.

Best of the bunch is however the steady one drop Innocent Persecution, the bouncy 80s sounding Never Give In and the aggressive Police Brutality, where message and vocal style blend perfect together.
