about

After 3 months holed up in the studio Blair French has emerged to bring you Genes / Space Conductor 7” in support of his forthcoming album The Art Of Us on Rocksteady Disco. The A-side holds the “Loose Fit” mix of “Genes”, where Blair channels his inner Tony Allen for an expertly executed modern psychedelic Afrobeat cut featuring a heavyweight cast of Detroit characters including Todd Modes, John Arnold, and Paul Randolph. On the flip is “Space Conductor”, a cosmic afro broken beat joint with heavy drums, a huge bassline, kora, and Blair’s vocals, exclusively available on this 7” only. Housed in a full color jacket, cut loud to lacquer, and pressed heavy with pride at Archer on Detroit’s east side.

Track Name: Space Conductor
worries come
worries go
let it go
let 'em go
ain't no thang
just not from this place
let it go
let 'em go

were we met for Earth or designed and left behind? (I don't know)

ain't no thang
just not from this place
hide in plan sight
just don't know my face
get me out this place
away from here
they tried to trap us
against our fears
worries come
worries go
let it go
let 'em go

we got to find our way out
got to find our way now

were we
meant for Earth
or designed
and left behind?
(what do I do)
