Yuzima – Black Supremecy
SWIT favourite and NYC’s Prince Of Noize is back with a new long player called “Power” which I finally got a first listen to today. I’m going to have to get in touch with the man himself and pick his brain on the album, it’s certainly time we spoke with him again. Yuzima is an implacable opponent of Donald Trump and the current far right hegemony of the Republic party. He speaks truth to that, racism, homophobia and the often unacknowledged pervasive white privilege he sees all around him. “Black Supremacy” is a case in point, an irony-laced, electrifying, no holds barred message to the willfully ignorant and the complacent. Combining Yuzima’s trademark distortion, echoed repetition and reverent falsetto, it’s a beautiful thing. The last minute and a half or so is a minimalist deconstruction of what’s gone before, sweet.
