Premiere: Ténéré – Say Laa Vee

Tenere-Say-Laa-Vee

Ahead of the release of Club Nowadays, Vol. 1 featuring selections by Chien Méchant, Grand Soleil, La Fine Equipe, Phantom Traffic, Fulgeance and Trifouille1er, we’re thrilled to world premiere the compilation’s first single by Paris-based DJ/producer Ténéré.

Ténéré flexes his house-fueled muscles on the funky cut “Say Laa Vee,” brandishing a sound that channels ’90s French Touch like nobody’s business.

Combining a booming kick drum, choice string and vocal samples, and a killer bassline, the recipe he whips up is irresistible.

Skibadee, the legendary London-bred drum ‘n’ bass MC, has died at the age of 54. His passing was announced by his family. The cause of death is not currently known.

“Hello everyone, as Alphonso’s first-born, I unfortunately come with some with sad news to say that Skibadee has passed away,” read the statement. “As a family we ask for some privacy, but may he rest in peace.”

Skibadee, who was born Alfonso Bondzie, began his career behind the mic in the early ’90s as drum ‘n’ bass was taking root as a musical force in the U.K. His rise to prominence began at City Sound Radio around 1993. He went on to win a spate of awards, including the 1Xtra award for Best MC in 2007 and Best MC Southwest Drum n Bass award. In 2008 and 2009, Skibadee won Best Lyrical MC and Best Hype MC in the national Drum and Bass Awards.

During his career, Skibadee appeared on various releases, collaborating with d’n’b artists such as MC Shabba D, Dillinja, Shy FX, T Power, Bryan G and DJ Hype.
