David Walters is an explorer. Not just one of those who show off on the screen. Like his Grandfather, David has not hesitated to cross seas or oceans to fulfil his desires fit. His mother's father left the Caribbean island of St Kitts for New York and started a family in London with a woman he met on the boat. David, on the other hand, travelled from his home in Marseille to Sheffield, London and Manchester to record this EP and to give a new twist to his career by musically extending the link that binds him to his grandfather, and more generally to his ancestors. "In Africa and its diasporas, as in the world for those who know how to see them, the elders are always at our side", he says in a soft voice.
"Music comes first".

It was on Guts' advice that David Walters changed his working habits. He and the French producer/beatmaker and DJ know each other well. "He offered to accompany me artistically on my new album, to be my third eye, or my third ear," says David. "He is someone I respect for his work, his discretion and his questioning, his desire to never repeat himself" he explains. "We often exchange ideas. We don't necessarily always agree, but whatever we think of each other, it's the music that comes first.” So when Guts told him about Tom Excell, David went for it. He headed for Sheffield where Excell, the producer, guitarist and percussionist had his own studio. The contact was direct. "We took the instruments and played like children", remembers David, still under the spell of the encounter. "Tom is part of the new English scene that combines jazz, soul, hip-hop and world grooves. He’s associated, as a musician, producer and remixer with Nubiyan Twist, Onipa, K.O.G., Me & My Friends and so many others. He has the freshness of the English sound. I like his approach. Over there, people have grown up with The Beatles, The Specials, Depeche Mode, The Clash or Apache Indian playing in the background in supermarkets. They have a different musical culture, a different musical culture that is part of the décor regardless of the genre, and that's a game changer," David says excitedly. "If people like it, they make room for you right away. I'm a fan".

"More personal and more open"
In three sessions at Tom Excell and David built these 4 tracks. “No One” which opens this E.P., was the first to be finalised. As always with David, everything is played - the Rhodes as well as the percussion, the bass as well as the drums - before being sampled. Even the electronic rhythms are sampled on the hi-hat or cymbal. Hence this organic sound. ”No One is a word of advice, an incitement to trust yourself, to listen to no one but your own instinct. This is something the singer already defended more than fifteen years ago on “Awa” the song that gave its name to his first album. "No One” is now more peaceful and serene than “Awa” was," he says. “Bow Down”, initiated with the Lyon-based producer Patchworks, is reinvented here in a lighter version. ‘It's a nod to New Orleans and the Afro-descendants, those men and women who kept their heads up despite slavery and mistreatment," says David, who recorded and produced the Nola is Calling project (2019) in a colonial house in New Orleans he transformed into a studio. The expression "Bow Down" is both a tribute to the Amerindians who came to the aid of African slaves and an affirmation of strength and resilience. Hurricane Kathrina is still on everyone's mind. As David explains, “Yemaja is the Cuban goddess of the sea. In Africa, she is called Yemoja”. There is no doubt that the sea is David's element. “The sea acts on me like a sort of great "reset". It's a place where you can also lose yourself," he says. “Baby Love”, the last track, echoes “Baby Go” from the album
Nocturne (2021), an opus recorded with cellist Vincent Segal, kora master Ballaké Sissoko and percussionist Roger Raspail. "In the end, these four tracks (+ a disco edit of “No One” by the American producer Captain Planet) are put together like a rebus, to tell a story that makes sense to me: Nobody is going to fall apart, thanks to Yemaja", David sums up with a warmth and smile in his voice.
David Walters is a true explorer, and doesn't intend to stop there. Future sessions are already scheduled in Tom Excell's studio in order to finalise a full length album which is due to be released early in 2023.

Ken “Everything I Own” Boothe played a significant part in covering Sir Coxsone’s Studio One walls with gold — and goodness knows that label fostered its share of legends. Collaborating with the master, Blundetto could have laid it on thick with heavy production; instead alongside his discreet partner Blackjoy, he created a gorgeous production using the purest of Jamaican music, proving yet again that time has nothing on the suave tones of Mr. Rocksteady...

Beach Diggin' Volume 4

Genre:Organic Grooves
For the fourth edition, the duo left behind their perennial favorite, Trinidad and Tobago, and headed for Jamaica and Brazil, trekked across South America to Peru, navigated across the Pacific to Japan, down to Australia, and then set sail for South Africa, went overland up to Tunisia, and finally put down their bags in France.
Along their perambulations around the globe, they handpicked a number of rare and often unique pearls that they found, at times in damaged shells, at others barely surviving in abused, large record collections. Guts and Mambo patiently selected these tracks with the intent of creating a vinyl barrier reef, an atoll of sound safe from the rising tide of noise pollution that the music industry spews forth every summer.

The 2016 edition once again treats listeners to an incredible diversity of styles and ambiences, ranging from jazz-funk to samba-rock, disco, soul, and reggae. Because in the end, the geographic origin matters little. Even if the golden triangle of Brazil, Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago remains the largest supplier, “Beach Diggin’” is above all a way of being, a way of living the moment and life in general to the fullest. Permanent coolitude on the BPM, fast or slow, an epicureanism that is equally at ease whether its produced with a sense of Amazonian luxuriousness or the sparse comfort of a deserted beach, a reserve of a few degrees of heat to put on the turntable when it gets cold outside.
So, it’s not surprising that tracks from Eastern Europe, North Africa, or the US have quickly received their stamp of approval. In this fourth compilation, just as in the previous three, the rule remains: “Beach Diggin’” still is a state of mind.

Florian Pellissier’s very own interpretation of African jazz, with African intonations and sounds acting as a free flowing compass. Propelling his quintet, instruments still warm from having recorded Biches Bleues and the touring that followed, Florian had his brotherhood of deer leap and gallop from Almeria to beyond the Mediterranean. From Europe to Africa, driven by the intensity of the rhythm section, blown forward by the winds of saxophone and trumpet, they travelled the length of the continent, a ribbon of black and white keys dancing under their hooves.

When she decided to buy her son a record every time he got good marks at school, Guts’s mum didn’t realise the terrible effect this would have. Was she dreaming of a sparkling academic career for her son? Well instead she got him hooked on a habit you can never kick: music
GUTS is one of the most famous French beatmaker. He founded the band ALLIANCE ETHNIK which had a strong success in the mid 90’s and spent all these years perfecting his skills alongside Bob Power, Rahzel (The Roots), De La Soul, Common and Biz Markie.
After the band break up in 1999, he did beats for French hip hop band like Sages poetes, Svinkels and Big red (half of Raggasonic). Big Red album production led him to Jamaica where he collaborated with Anthony B, Michael Rose, Sugar Minott…
2007 represented a first major change. Having lived in Paris up till then, he headed for Ibiza. Not for the clubs, though. Instead, in the company of his best friend, the MPC4000 and his precious vinyl record collection, he concocted his first solo album, Guts le Bienheureux. Released on UK label Wax On Records (set up by DJ EASE of Nightmares On Wax), this pack of little instrumental energy pills brought him to international attention on the back of And The Leaving Is Easy and its mariachi brass riffs.
The next step was producing his own records on the Pura Vida Music label that he founded and used to release Freedom, his second album. The tracks are more structured and crammed with subliminal samples that take us through gentle landscapes or plumb dark, dark depths. They extend to over three minutes, which means he can now interest ears other than ones wedded to hip-hop.

The 2011 EP Rage Against My Computer brought his do-it-yourself hiatus to a close and Heavenly Sweetness’s release of Paradise For All confirms this. Paradise for all is an attractive prospect and Guts proves it is not beyond him as he does his level best to keep his promise with these 11 tracks.

Heavenly Sweetness HHV Records

Heavenly Sweetness is a record label from Paris that has been founded by Antoine Rajon and Franck Descollonges. They describe their releases as »colourful music for the soul«. Actually they try to parry categorizations. The music that is released on Heavenly Sweetness can be well described with the attributes »spiritual« and »free«. Such music is most likely found in the genres soul, funk and jazz. Heavenly Sweetness releases both new releases and re-releases of rare and inspiring records. Established artist (Monnette Sudler, Doug Hammond, Doug Carn, Byard Lancaster, Chilly Gonzales) such as talents (Anne Wirz, Anthony Joseph, Stéphane Rongetz) are signed on that label. What brings it all together is the idea, only to release music that is produced with the production conditions like they were in the 1960ties. Therefore a track should (preferably) recorded in only one take and without overdubs. Newfangled technical bells and whistles are set aside in favor of an immediate sound.
