Brother Culture describes an Orwellian society on The Secret Files.

Sampler

Brother CultureLast year veteran UK deejay Brother Culture  teamed up with producer and mixing engineer Joe Ariwa, son of the legendaryMad Professor. Together they dropped a set titled  The Secret Files, an album where Brother Culture targets Big Brother, state control and invasion of personal privacy. It’s certainly a current issue thanks to the disclosures made by Edward Snowden.

As usual with albums coming from Ariwa this is showcase effort and each of the six vocal cuts are directly followed by their dub counterpart.

And over a heavy and equally steady riddim Brother Culture chats “the most camera is found in the UK. The film you in the cinema, they film you in the bar, they even film you when you are walking in the park. They say it’s part of the war on terror, but soon every man a gonna need a barrister”. A telling verse of how it is in many countries today. Big Brother is watching every step you take; whether you are outside in the streets or at home in front of your computer.

An important album targeting a critical question, and hopefully it might raise awareness around Big Brother surveillance.
