47soul السبعة و أربعين — the Arab electronic hip-hop supergroup will release their full-length debut BALFRON PROMISE
47soul السبعة و أربعين have become renowned for inventing their own genre Shamstep (also the name of their debut EP), which fuses hip-hop and pop lyrics in English and Arabic. The electronic creation,
featuring elements of Arab roots music have been kicked up a gear on Balfron Promise, with cinematic soundscapes and menacing rock undertones creating an extra atmospheric edge.
The title BALFRON PROMISE is an intentional nod to the Balfour Declaration – the centenary of which has just passed. The songs expose the similarities between parts of the world we think of as
distant, war-torn lands, and the culture and class wars happening on our own doorstep. It explores the idea that perhaps gentrification and occupation aren not as different as we think.
Samedia Shebeen will throw the after party at the Mash House, with discounts for all 47SOUL ticket holders.
New Urban Frontier will be first on warming us up
