The 2009 Mercury Prize winner has been announced – Speech Debelle’s album Speech Therapy. The album features two singles, “The Key” and “Better Days” – both tracks co-written and produced by none other then the great Plutonic Lab. Congratulations to Pluto for this massive achievement.
His production work on the album has been described as “like no hip hop record you’ve ever heard” (Dazed & Confused) and “A pleasurable point of difference in modern hip hop” (M8). “The Key” was named single of the week in both NME and the Sunday Times.
Plutonic Lab has just completed work on the Gully Platoon debut and is currently in the studio with singer song writer Jess Harlen on what is set to be a stunning debut album. He then jumps back behind the live drum kit to perform on the Obese Block Party Tour as one half of Muph and Plutonic. Below you can see a pic that was posted by DJ Bonez, showing a bit of behind the scenes action at the recording of Jess Harlen’s new album.
