Title: Microweight
Format: Limited Vinyl (200 pieces) // Digital
Release date: 21st April

A - Hoop Dreams
AA - Microweight

Blah Blah Blah turn 5 years old this May and as part of their celebrations they have saved perhaps their most exciting signing yet for a Ltd ʻWeAre5 Vinylʼ release, the prolific genre juggling Blacksmif.

Blacksmif flirts on the edge of reason, taking flamboyant percussive and melodic risks within a bass driven jazz tinged environment, such is the adventurousness of his music that he has already gathered himself quite a fan club, among which he can count Mixmag, Gilles Peterson, and Mary Anne Hobbs as leading members.

Opening track Hoop Dreams gently patters into life as a comforting wall of sound builds beneath crisp percussion and a skittish bassline, its simplicity seductively luring you into its clutches before it totally immerses you in a unfolding mix of shifting melodies, competing vocal snippets and percussion that comes at you from every angle. Microweight follows a similarly weaving journey of evolution as layers ebb and flow between triumph and thoughtful contemplation.

With his first single ʻMandyʼ coming 5th in Mixmags Big Tunes in April and with shows lined up at Glade, Dimensions and a supporting slot with Julio Bashmore, Blacksmif is set for an enthralling 2012.
