We’re super excited for this album.
Curated by Lonely Table, radio producer Anja Ngozi and The Vinyl Factory, with the help of funding by the Arts Council England a new compilation collecting seven collaborations inspired by the life and work of Jean-Michel Basquiat will drop this May.
The album called ‘Untitled’ features mouth-watering collaborations between artists such as site faves Wu-Lu, Lex Amor, Joe Armon-Jones, Maxwell Owin, Lord Tusk, LayFullstop and so many more talented artist.
Speaking about Basquiat and the album, Lonely Table co-founder Lexy Morvaridi says:
“Basquiat saw society for what it was and used his creativity to reflect the issues that affected him most. Untitled is a continuation of these ideals, bringing the themes he presented to a contemporary setting and using music to tackle issues that are still prevalent in today’s society. This album is a visceral response to the times we live in.”
The project also encompasses a youth project with Ruff Sqwad Foundation, in which seven BME young people aged 12-18 were given the opportunity to visit the Tate Modern and create music in response to what they saw. Two further tracks were created as a result of these workshops.
