Today the UK label Big Dada announced a series of releases to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the label. Having released landmark records from Wiley, Diplo, Run The Jewels, King Geedorah, Roots Manuva, Young Fathers, Kate Tempest and Darq E Freaker (among others) the label announced upcoming albums by Young Fathers, King Geedorah, Zomby, Hype Williams, Sampa The Great, Visionist, WEN, Farai, EERA, Kai Whiston, and new signing Kutmah, who today shares his brand new single ‘Bury Me By The River feat Gonjasufi‘.
Founded on a stoned, swampy guitar riff loop by close friend and collaborator Dario Roja Guerra (aka Natureboy Flako), it was born when Kutmah vined something with the instrumental playing in the background. ‘Sufi commented, asking what the track was, and about 4 months later sent over a rough vocal that Justin loved.
The British born, LA-grown and now Berlin-based DJ/producer is putting the finishing touches to his debut album, due later this year on the imprint that shaped his taste as a teenager.
Big Dada started the same year I started DJing,” he explains. “Not DJing in clubs or making tapes. Literally when I first touched turntables. If you’d told me in 1997 that I’d one day be releasing my debut album on a label alongside Saul Williams, Anti-Pop Consortium, Abstract Rude, King Geedorah and Roots Manuva I would have laughed!
