SLOVO QuickFire Questions

Former Faithless guitarist and producer Dave Randall, presents his new project called Slovo. And shares a rather appropriate moment of positivity with new electronic-pop track ‘STATE OF MIND’, featuring the lovely Barbarella. The convincing tune is lifted from Slovo’s forthcoming album Bread & Butterflies, a collection of wonderfully relevant electronic-pop gems.

What was the first album you bought?

Abba – Greatest Hits

Who are some of your biggest musical inspirations and why?

Beethoven and Jerry Dammers (of The Specials). Both politically minded artists who knew how to write a good tune.

What are some non-musical inspirations that motivate your music?

The usual stuff: Love, sex, revolution…

Tell us about your new single for State of Mind?

State Of Mind is a message of hope, love and solidarity during these troubling times. It features Barbarella and experimental hip hop artist Mike Ladd. All proceeds from sales or streaming will go to the homeless charity The Brixton Soup Kitchen.

What can we expect from you in 2020?

It seems hard to predict anything right now, but expect our new album Bread & Butterflies this summer, and a tour towards the end of the year.
