Man Made

amf records

Sequenced to be submerged in as a whole, this fluid & transportive album oozes both remarkable freshness & a warm nostalgia that make her distinctive & edgy R’n’B as relevant & appealing to a youthful audience as it does to those who have grown up with her key influences Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu & Jill Scott.

Seamlessly fusing hip-hop to jazz, neo-soul, trip hop, ragga, rock, dub & drum & bass all anchored by her deep, unaffected vocal & smoky beats, there’s no denying she’s a serious talent as evinced by her captivating live performances (you really do have to see her live!). “Join me & my boys as we travel the sonicsphere on the way back to centre, through the depths of apathy & the heights of interconnection through surrender…I offer you Man Made”.

Set against the backdrop of one of the most turbulent years in recent memory, Greentea and her band The Seng Seng Family retreated to the country last summer where the alchemy of ‘MAN MADE’ took place, bringing a live element to the album, and chose to record the record in 432 Hz frequency, a pitch that falls a semitone below music industry standard, which is thought to vibrate healing energy. Executive-produced by long-time collaborator Earbuds, Greentea worked with an incredible roll-call of producers; the likes of Swindle, long-standing collaborators SAMO & KIKO, and Mala (part of the legendary dubstep production duo Digital Mystikz and the founder of the iconic DMZ dubstep label). The album was then mixed by the legendary Commissioner Gordon. At 18 tracks, MAN MADE is a true opus, a fluid and transportive listening experience, channelling deepest inner-thoughts and exploring different states of being, segued to be enjoyed in full. It encourages repeated revisits to fully explore the magic at work. Greentea shares her MAN MADE manifesto: " MAN MADE- an exploration of self and sound. A product of shifting paradigms both inner and outer. An ULTRA SONIC TRIP. This album is an offering of healing, a provocation of Hu Man spirit soul. Out of tune with the industry and in tune with the universe, this is a 432hrz production. Deliberately detuned out of any Babylon standard! It is to be felt…like a buzzing bee, in one's chest. A VIBRATION. A jambalaya of expression, this project fits no genre, not to be digested easily by everyone. However for those occupying the same space right now, upholding the frequency at such a transformative and challenging moment in time…I trust THIS SOUND will find you. Dedicated and inspired by the late Jimtastic, join me and my boys as we travel the Sonicsphere on the way back to centre, through the depths of apathy and the heights of interconnection through surrender… I offer you MAN MADE.” “An album that is truly magical, Man Made is a stand-out debut” 9/10 – album of the week – line of best fit
