In September Damu the Fudgemunk will release his new project Conversation Peace. The project will come via Def Pressé, which has entered into a partnership with KPM/EMI to officially open KPM’s iconic music and sound design library for the first time ever.
“The music that would become Conversation Peace began with a trip to KPM’s London HQ in late January of 2020,” says Damu “I had just finished wrapping up post production on my album Ocean Bridges with Archie Shepp and Raw Poetic. As a record collector, I’m very familiar with the legacy of the KPM brand. Listening to the entire catalogue was a history lesson and the amount of great composers and compositions in the recordings was endless. As a producer looking for textures, inspiration and grooves, the abundance of those things made it extremely difficult to narrow down what I wanted to use. From drums to sound FX to orchestras to small rhythm sections to ambient noises, I heard a wide variety of things and they were all so well produced and recorded. The history of KPM and the opportunity to collaborate with the prestigious lineage made the stakes very high for me and I knew I needed to deliver a quality product. It’s an honor to be the first artist to release a KPM Crate Diggers title.”
He has now shared the fist single “Four Better or Worse (Pt. 1),” featuring Nitty Scott. Hear it below.
