The "First Lady of Beatdown" will release her debut album next month.
Since we last spoke with the Californian producer, Lady Blacktronica has broken away from Cocaine collaborator Mattski to set up her own label, Sound Black Recordings. Following a string of singles rooted in honouring the foundations of house from Chicago, New Jersey and Detroit, the soulful vocalist returns with a deep, occasionally disturbing 10-track LP. Future Blues gathers odes to electronic music's past and imbues them 21st century sensibilities, marrying dusty Chicago house vocals with throbbing contemporary rhythms. The record features Strictly Rhythm singer Ira Levi and Bailey Jemille, from her own Sound Black imprint.
