TUNE DEADBEAR - Black Sheep Is Meaty
After the self-released 2017 album ‘ The Trees are Dancing ’, 2019 sees DEADBEAR set to release a new
artistic project and record ‘ World Music Market’ . The release is a concept record tied wholly to Berlin, vinyl and
the migration of people and music. All profits will be going directly to charity, specifically projects that help
integrate refugees into Western communities and develop new skills.
Single: Released on July 26th , the first single, titled ‘‘ Black Sheep Is Meaty ’ after one of the Turkish folk
songs sampled in the record, exemplifies the cultural and stylistic interweaving and collaging throughout the
album placing Syrian percussion, Tibetan working songs and Turkish melodies side by side in an electronic
music context. Donovan says, ‘ This track absolutely doesn’t work as a single, it’s in ⅞ time, it has no chorus or
discernible centre and sounds insane due to all the stylistic elements and cultural anchors jostling for
dominance but that’s the record - so in that way it’s actually perfect to introduce people to the album ’.
