Some of you might remember the brilliant track-cycling, London Hip-hop group 2morrow’s Victory that we brought you a couple of weeks ago. Well, last week, their own record label unveiled two new signings at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Awards that we thought were worth telling you about. Joey and J’Danna made an unexpected appearance at the London awards to play an impressive Gill Scott Heron tribute and two tracks have been made available. Pressed to choose between the two, J’Danna just pips it at the post. Her Future-Soul take on the eponymous track from Gil’s 1974 album combines her amazing voice with some interesting production, reminiscent of the boom-boom-clap beat on Jamie xx’s New York Is Killing Me (coincidence both are covering Mr Scott-Heron?). Unfortunately we can find out nothing more on the pair, but we’ll definitely be keeping our ears peeled.
Joey’s version of The Revolution Will Not Be Televised, brings more of a Hip-hop twist to the original.
And if you’re so-inclined, here are the original songs that J’Danna and Joey are covering:
