It’s only been a minute since his Babylondon release, with that crazy stop motion video for March On, and now the guy from Australia’s ol-school beloved multi genre band, 1200 Techniques, is finally delivering a full LP of new collaborative music.
Having appeared on Drapht’s singles Bali Party and 1990’s the duo have worked together to deliver the forthcoming album entitled Black + White Noise to be released through Drapht’s label The Ayems in early 2014.
Black + White Noise is a diverse and dynamic scope of music, journeying through the dark and light soundscapes of Hip Hop, future beats, soul and roots. Through rap verse and sung melodies, N’fa Jones conveys his personal struggles and personal joys for the listener to relate to, and grow with, on beats to make your head sway heavily.
First single Life’s A Game is a catch up on N’fa Jones’ new take on life and what he’s been though over the past few years. These vary from living abroad, feeling unstuck, becoming a father, returning home to Australia with his new family, and finding a balance in life.
Life’s A Game features resonant soulful vocals by upcoming Sydney artist Brave, and a beat production collaboration of Ta-Ku, Sensible J & Dutch. Accompanied by a unique and eye catching video by Melbourne creatives ‘Think [art x design x video]‘. Life’s A Game is an uplifting and inspiring song that’ll get anybody feeling good in their shoes this Spring.
N’fa Jones says “I’m just so happy and so amazed to be officially releasing my music. To be doing so with producers and people whom i really love and share true friendship with, is an amazing and humbling gift. I hope you will enjoy this song, and the album. It’s pretty different, but for me, different is a good thing.. Different is what I’m all about“.
