Courtesy of producer Jeedo under the alias Church Boy Lou, this 4-track Weep EP is steeped in the evolution of slave spirituals into gospel music. It is songs from the field meeting the trinity of Chicago house, Detroit electro-tech and disco. The voice of producer Paul Randolph accompanies the wails and moans from Southern plantation laborers on “Alright!” and the companion “Paul-a-pella.” The title track “Weep” is seven and a half minutes of haunting vocal chops and raw four-on-the-floor drums.
The Weep EP cover is an abstract design designed and printed by Jeedo of a young, African-American slave child in bondage. Only 50 hand-silkscreened limited prints on with colored vinyl will be available worldwide. Limit of 2 copies per customer. DTR06A
