Today French emcee Pumpkin drops the video for the title track of her upcoming EP. Silence Radio will be released on November 12th on vinyl, CD and digital formats. This same-titled song is up for free download, including a remix of “Mute” featuring long-time The Find favorite RacecaR (of Modill).
It’s remarkable that there’s relatively a lot of French hip hop on The Find. From 1995 to C2C and from Hugo Kant to The Qiwu Selftet, they all seem to be able to add a personal touch and refreshing interpretation to golden era influences.
Silence Radio by Mentalow Music‘sPumpkin is another example of that: the French-Spanish emcee/poetess delivers a contemporary release with a refreshing style by her silky voice and the electronic approach by beatsmiths like DJ Vadim (this title track), Supafuh, Josh Fontan (of Beatspoke), 20syl (of Hocus Pocus/C2C), Quiet Dawn, and her partner Vin’S da Cuero.
Pumpkin: “The release was formulated as an intimate storytelling session – packaged in seamless, melodic, and in the original meaning of the word ‘Jazz’, word acrobatics.” Vocally she’s assisted by artists like Ty, Metropolis (of Foreign Beggars) and Pugs Atomz.
