It has been a long time coming as they say and now the second full length album from UK producer 2econd Class Citizen is ready for release. Having spent the past year collaborating with and remixing DJ Food, touring Europe with US artist cars&trains and remixing artists such as Loka and Dday One, 2econd Class Citizen also managed to fit in some studio time and is back with his signature sound on “The Small Minority”, his follow-up to 2009’s lauded “A World Without”.
Poised to disarm and conquer, “The Small Minority” is 50 minutes of pure aural delight: meticulously constructed drums, sublime mineral sonorities and cinematic moods immerse the listener in a huge pallet of sounds, rhythms and samples that create contrasted atmospheres, both cold and luminous.
An alumnus of Ninja Tune’s iconic Solid Steel series, 2econd Class Citizen caught the ears of DJ Food’s Strictly Kev and last year the two worked together on the 9 track musical collage “Magpie Music” which was released as part of Food’s EP “Magpies, Maps & Moons” and also included in the following album “The Search Engine”.
“The Small Minority” is preceded by a single release, “Outside Your Doorway / Liberated Lady”, featuring vocalists and remixers such as L.A’s underground pioneer Dday One, Strange Famous’ Buddy Peace – the nicest DJ you never knew about – and James Reindeer that neatly showcases 2econd Class Citizen’s broad appeal, his cross-genre mastery and ever-widening audience.
