Product Details


"We Will Not Harm You" sees "UK bass legend" (Mixmag) Dobie release his first album since 1997's classic, "The Sound Of One Hand Clapping" (Pussyfoot). Thirteen tracks of deep, beautifully worked instrumental music, based in hip hop but touching on techno, house, dubstep, latin, twostep, jazz, soul, funk and everything in between, "We Will Not Harm You" is a work of art from one of the pillars of the Black British music scene.

Created over eighteen months, "We Will Not Harm You" sees Dobie develop the style pioneered on his two EPs for Big Dada and take it still further. In combining his love of classic breaks with the most contemporary music-making techniques, his feel for soul with the essential rawness of his hip hop education, Dobie makes something unique and timeless. So "Blip 124" runs bleep back through the bloco, "Stan Lee Is Hero Of Mine" pits funk drumming against a snaking, evil, electronic bassline, and first single "She Moans" is an exercise in the interaction between percussion and bottom end, a kind of deconstruction of dubstep back into its consitutuent parts. Tunes like "The Chant" and "Crunch Factor No. 5" are an insturmental hip hop as hard, edgy and psychedelic as anything coming out of the LA Beat Scene, "Snap, Crackle & Pop" takes the spirit of breaking and spins it out into space, "Magenta" re-thinks the house grooove. "Then I Woke Up," meanwhile, is an exercise in psychotic mood music, "Somewhere Over There" is the kind of beautiful, soulful interlude you'd expect to find on an obscure soul-jazz B side, while "She Wiggles When She Walks" is a shimmering, transcendent conclusion to a great album.

Dobie is a producer, DJ, photographer and skateboarder who has worked with everyone from Soul II Soul, Tricky and London Posse to Massive Attack, Hal Willner, Les Negresses Verte and Bjork. As well as his music, "We Will Not Harm You" will showcase many of Dobie's photographs, documenting both the skate scene and the early UK hip hop scene, as well as an essay on his music and life by cultural commentator Jason Jules. In addition, the cover art has been specially painted by his good friend (and Turner Prize winning artist) Chris Ofili. A true hidden legend of underground British bass music, Dobie's new album takes his roots in hop hop and explodes them to the stars. Listen and learn.
