The Blackhouse is subversive and funky. The electro-disco-hip-hop hybrid of Georgia Anne Muldrow and DJ Romes aims to energize your body as well as your consciousness with their electrifying self-titled LP, Blackhouse, delivered via Mello Music Group.
Today, enjoy the latest leak from their album, the high-energy track “SOMALI.” Heavy political commentary is woven into wobbling bass lines and galvanizing whistles in the song that takes the listener back to block parties powered by street lights and mobile DJ systems. While some might see blatantly repeating a line like “Somali pirates are the bomb” as a tracks’ central thesis a bit gauche, The Blackhouse see it as a rightful call to celebration. For those who’ve drunk the kool-aid, Somali’s have endured crippling political tumult and exploitation of their coasts by European nations, creating the conditions for modern day piracy as a way to protect an extremely vulnerable population.
