‘Modern Warfare’ E.P. OUT NOW!!

‘Modern Warfare’ is the second release this year from Screaming Soul, a collaboration between Lucid Mover and Ghetto Priest.  ‘Modern Warfare’ is essentially a fully reloaded revamped re-release of our first demo ‘Warfare’, which featured on our debut album and was remixed by Ruckspin & Planas for Ranking Records in 2008. 

This EP Features both the Ranking mix and the original mix as well as Mutant Hi-Fi‘s ‘Squatters in the Oval Office’ mix which is a little taster of what’s to come on ‘Ghost Inna Dub’ early 2012.

‘Operation: Zombie Nation’ producer Key Skills‘ contribution is a dance floor destroyer while DefDFiresBill Daggs, whose completely updated version of the track bears the EP title, features verses from Daggs himself, Uncle Jazza (DDF) and Sandman drops a Lucid ‘remixed’ verse, all the patterns are the same but the words are different. 

The EP also features two bonus tracks from Wot Not Music‘s JJ Mumbles who has remixed two other tracks from our debut album ‘Ghost in a Shell’: the glitchy minimalist thump of ‘Wool Ova Dem Eyes’ and the eerily atmospheric ‘Rusty Cage’.  Mumbles has a beautifully unorthodox style of production that seems to know no limits- watch out for that guy, big tings a gwan.


Screaming Soul – ‘Ghost in a Shell’ LP OUT NOW!!!

‘Ghost in a Shell’ is the visionary debut album from Screaming Soul, a collaboration between Sandman aka Lucid Mover (MC/producer) and Ghetto Priest (vocalist). This enigmatic duo are veterans of their respective scenes, having worked with the likes of Asian Dub Foundation, Adrian Sherwood, Congo Natty, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry and many more.

‘Ghost in a Shell’ blends an eclectic mix of genres and influences; tribal drums and dubby melodicas transport you to a sun-drenched hilltop to witness ‘IllumiNatty’, before the grimy jazz tones of ‘Cat Among the Pigeons’ lead you down filthy back streets in search of a guilty fix. The thunderous bass lines and rump-shaking breaks of ‘Deep Beneath the Streets’ and ‘The Furnace’ are peppered with middle eastern spices while the album’s title track blends latin rhythms with soulful horns and sweeping strings to bring our journey to its dramatic conclusion.

“Ghost In A Shell is a picaresque journey through a modern, often dystopian London, that is not only musically adventurous and lyrically adept, but a timely and intelligent meditation on the darker side of capitalism.” –

These epic, multi-layered soundscapes set the backdrop for a pair of master wordsmiths to vent their existential musings and weave apocalyptic tales of struggle in the modern world. This dystopian narrative is told through a dialogue between the troubled disciple and the tribe elder; Sandman illustrates the darkness and difficulties we all face, while Ghetto Priest reassures with his rays of optimism.
