London-based producer, DJ, Tiff’s Joints label boss and Touching Bass member Sean Keating shed his Born Cheating moniker earlier this year in favour of Poison Zcora. Today’s track, inspired in name by the political and military leader, sees him match his signature broken beat rhythms with soaring electro synths and reflective pads.
“This song was an attempt to channel the rage stirred by a horrible man that died almost four hundred years ago. Posthumously executing figures from the past that have fucked the present may not be of much use to anyone at all, but it is one of the few things I have enjoyed doing during lockdown.”
This year we’ve chosen to split profits from the release between two charities, both of whom are doing important work within their respective fields.
The first charity is London-based organisation You Make It, a creative programme that offers young women access to tools, networks and experiences — group learning, 1-1 mentoring, work experience, start-up support and 1-1 pastoral support — giving them the confidence to transform their lives through personal empowerment.
The second is Nigeria-based initiative Project Protect, a subdivision of Burna Boy’s charitable NGO The Reach, launched to help provide financial, medical and legal resources for EndSars protestors during and after the protests.
