Last year, when we released the "Salade de Concombres Vol. 1", we had waves of positive feedback, nevertheless, most felt that it was too big, too much, not suitable for one sitting, hard to digest, and so on. We took notes of everything and tried to do our best on this new volume.
This compilation was based on a very specific concept : having the music composed according to the artwork. Albane's artwork whirlwind of surreal collage madness bears within the vector of this compilation as artists had to integrate bits of it in their lyrics or beats.
The rules were simple :
- The submitted song should imperatively bear a link with the aforementioned artwork by Albane / DyN (in atmosphere, mood, lyrics, etc)
- Anybody could participate (with as many songs as they wanted)
At the end of the submission period we selected the songs carefully so that they would form a cohesive ensemble while still expressing each particularity and style of every artists involved.
In the end, the wide variety of themes aborded makes for an unsettling trip in the minds of those who crafted those sonic treats. Annunakis, Ancient Astronauts, nuclear war, atomic bombs, UFOs, other forms of life, death, capitalism, after-life, Hell and resurrection are just some of the topics rapped here.
We sincerely hope that you enjoy this as much as we did making it.
Thanks to everybody involved in this compilation, it wouldn't had happened without your creativity and artistic generosity.
Thanks to you for listening, enjoy and share!
