Developing their own sound and twist on modern hip hop, psychedelic and soul, Electric Wire Hustle’s unique sound challenges genre boundaries and preconceptions. The music of New Zealand’s EWH reaches forward while referencing key points of music’s past.

This is lovesick dubstep at it's best, ghostly and syrupy through the koppies and quarries of Cape Town. The video for War on Words, features the story of a heartbroken widow performing pagan ceremonies to bring her dead husbands back to life...if only for a night. Her lovers are maggot ridden corpses, struggling through the dark passages of purgatory.

Check out the original version with over 50,000 hits here:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQLznlyLONI This is the official single 'Blackstar' feat. M.anifest from Mr Pitch's forthcoming Ghanaian LP 'Ye Fre Mi Richy Pitch' out on BBE Records. The video was produced by the amazing Tom Jackson (Stringmouse / Ramjamuk). Richy and Tom both had a mutual admiration for the ZX Spectrum and decided to style the video with this in mind. M.anifest is an MC from Minnestota in the US but spent all his early life in Accra, Ghana. The track describes this transition. He has 2 tracks on my new LP. M.anifest describes the track like this :- 'Blackstar is somewhere between an artistic autobiography and a collage of snapshots of life as a youngster in Ghana."it was all a dream, but i never had word up magazine." It's also an allusion to the name of Ghana's beloved soccer team, the "Black Stars." The entire country gets religious/fanatic when they play. So being a black star to me, a diasporic Ghanaian, symbolizes doing things in my artistic journey to represent and thrill my people like the Essiens and Abedi Peles of our history. ' LYRICS BY M.ANIFEST BLACKSTAR VERSE 1 It was all a dream, but i never knew I would be seen Eventually I might make the big screen We rarely had access to magazines But since a teen in Accra, Ghana Hopes to be that young bloke Had a big stash of Tupac quotes Now I'm older, witness the growth Fame keep spreading still I'm broke Traveled the seas with the red gold green Now I'm a black star caught in between Intergalactic star it seems Chris says knowledge reigns supreme But we were raised living the high-life Pilolo that was my life Hide and seek, playing football in the streets Tatale, kelewele and beans Painting portraits of our culture And the burdens on my shoulder Embraced it now I'm older Moved to a climate that's colder Still I'm, heating up I told ya And still going hard like a boner They slept on me like coma Now they cant see me glaucoma Travel, considered a roamer Considerably a loner The smell of my odour, is a beautiful aroma And Richy Pitch pitch up, let me get auto- Biographical, this is my life in flow tho Hook I'm a Black Star, shining bright from afar many miles from home, still, my heart is in Accra I'm a Black Star, shining bright far from afar in a world of my own, intergalactic star VERSE 2 Lets play a game of hide seek Lets find emotions buried deep Just last week, a song made me weep It reminded me I got promises to keep Before I sleep I got miles to walk I got to rep Madina where I learnt this talk Its far from new york, but theres concrete blocks Uncompleted buildings where the weed heads talk Rawlings circle, estate, to the old road i.p.s., where the armed robbers law low new road, Akosombo Junction, and Zongo, in the evening for strangers its a no-go Allah Akbar, the imam in the morning sound of the prayers before the crack of dawn and everyone was geeked if you had music that was foreign little did I know in the future I would be touring little did I know when I first heard Reggie Rockstone that less than a decade later, Id be penning mad poems but this is destiny, definitely passed on by my Grandpa Sulley Muntari of vocabulary, I'm a Black Star HOOK I'm a Black Star, shining bright from afar many miles from home, still, my heart is in Accra I'm a Black Star, shining bright far from afar in a world of my own, intergalactic star I'm a Black Star, shining bright from afar many miles from home, still, my heart is in Accra I'm a Black Star, shining bright far from afar in a world of my own, intergalactic star Released by: BBE Records Category: Music+ More details
