SAUL WILLIAMS

MartyrLoserKing

fader



CD

Released: 29th Jan 2016

£11.99


the Poet, rapper, singer, songwriter, musician, writer, actor, activist's self-produced 6th album sees him straining trap hi-hats & mbira strokes together for a nuanced, entirely original sound.

a thinly veiled concept album carved from the tales of its central character, Martyr Loser King - the screen-name of a hacker living in Burundi, it is a record of action. Re-rooting discussions of globalization, gender, identity & technology, Williams cites Beyoncé, Fredo Santana & Haitian field recordings as musical inspirations. a fabulous punk/rap/rock/dance hybrid record for fans of young fathers, algiers or kendrick lamar. "Williams fuses his progressive poetry & lullabies for liberals with melancholy melodies over an industrial-tinged palette of polyrhythms & breakbeats, building towards frenzied crescendos as he hybridizes rap, dance, punk & more" - fact.
