This is the new style...No sleep till Bristol.
'A one-of-a-kind mix, which turns into a sonic rollercoaster full of dub, psychedelia, surrealism and noise.'

'Everything in 'Favour' suggests a vast mental space where all that is solid has melted into air. The only landmarks are memories that vanish as soon as they surface, represented here by footage from Tøni Schifer’s documentary On/Off: Mark Stewart (Pop Group to Maffia). Perry and Stewart have processed these images from the singer’s life to resemble the “Jupiter and Beyond the Infinite” sequence of 2001.'
The new video for Favour, Mark Stewart's first solo release in seven years, now premiering at Dangerous Minds
Favour is taken from the new On-U Sound Records compilation 'Pay It All Back Vol. 7'

'If you’ve never heard Learning to Cope with Cowardice, it is a collection of sounds that wraps your nervous system around the spools of a cassette deck, then uses your brain to degauss the tape head and your cerebrospinal fluid to lubricate the capstan...In the film, Stewart and producer Adrian Sherwood describe the mixing and editing techniques they used to make this mental work of art, some imported from New York hip-hop and other audio collage forms and some invented on the spot and probably never yet repeated'
