Toronto’s Bedouin Soundclash will be returning to the studio to record their follow up to “Sounding a Mosaic” (Stomp Records) and have invited Darryl Jenifer of Bad Brains back to produce. The new record “Street Gospels” will be recorded at Signal To Noize studios in Toronto in early 2005 with a tentative release date of spring 2005. “Street Gospels” will be available in Canada on STOMP Records and will come out in the USA an a soon-to-be-announced label. Here’s what Jay Malinowksi had to say about the upcoming record:
“We are honoured to have someone like Darryl Jenifer working with us on this project. On Sounding a Mosaic Darryl brought a whole different element to the studio, and his past experiences with Bad Brains and the New York hardcore scene influenced us all as musicians. Darryl is one of those few people who has affected so many people in music today, from Pharell Williams, the Beastie Boys, Mos Def, and The Roots, to bands like Asian Dub Foundation, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and No Doubt. He has made an impact. This next record is going to be one of our most important, in terms of the expectations we have of ourselves and that our fans and community have around us, we are really happy to have Darryl, and all the other musicians coming into support us and lend their voices for “Street Gospels”, we can’t wait to get it recorded and heard.”
So yeah, there you have it. Bedouin Soundclash will be playing the STOMP Records annual ska party series in January in Montreal to celebrate the label’s 10th anniversary with some shows in Southern Ontario before they cloister themselves into the studio.
