Soulwax‘s label DEEWEE has announced a new compilation featuring Charlotte Adigéry – listen to ‘Bear With Me (And I’ll Stand Bare Before You)’ below.
The record marks the first compilation from DEEWEE, their 50th release overall. According to a press release, the project boasts “a breadth of imagination, a love of hands-on artistry and the sonic craftsmanship of the Dewaele brothers”.
Previewing the forthcoming ‘Foundations’ is the aforementioned song from Belgian-Caribbean artist Adigéry, whose latest EP ‘Zandoli’ (2019) was produced by Soulwax and released via DEEWEE.
Dealing with “isolation and connection”, ‘Bear With Me…’ was written during the coronavirus-enforced lockdown by Adigéry alongside her partner Bolis Pupul.
“Bolis and I are storytellers, writing observational tales about the strange world we all inhabit,” Adigéry explained, “this song is about being confined thus confronted to the way we live. The cruel irony of having the privilege of standing still, questioning and observing my life in all safety while others are fighting for theirs.
“Bolis and I are making a time capsule, writing songs that tell the story of life in 2020. We believe 2020 has been such a cornerstone for the 21st century.”
