The latest addition to High Focus Records, Onoe Caponoe, delivers his 25 facts about the upcoming album “Voices From Planet Cattele”. As Hip-Hop Kings previously reported, the whole album has been produced by UK Hip-Hop legend Chemo, and is available to pre-order now (links above). Enjoy!
1.The project was started somewhere in between December 2012 and January 2013.
2. The Lap steel slide guitar used in the track ‘Space Jungles of Cattele’ was previously owned for many years by David Gilmour of Pink Floyd.
3. The voice on the intro of the album is actually DJ BB.
4. The song ‘Disappearing Jakob’ was a curse and week later I was skateboarding down my road, fucked up on a stone or some shit and fell off n smashed my phone.
5. ‘Space Jungles Of Catelle’ was recorded in my bedroom last minute and it juuuussstttt made it onto the project.
6. ‘Space Bitches’ was written in late 2011.
7. I recorded ‘Space Bitches’ to a random song I wrote it to then Chemo constructed his beat to the accapella.
8. Jehst is actually the Lord of darkness and wrote one of the cleverest blasphemic rap verses ever, casually in under 10 minutes then levitated.
9. I drew all the art work for the bloodclart project ya simi.
10. This project is a turning point in my career and while working on it I have also been pushing and maturing my own sound and working on a number of projects and ideas for future releases.
11. I accidentally took loads of acid after a show then spent the next 3 months spazzing out n nearly didn’t finish the project lol.
12. One of my friends, this dude named Mycro was in the studio with a few of us when we are recording the song ‘Goth Bitches’. I askd him to go in the booth and do some shit for the outro of the song. He did it one take and that’s what we used.
13. I had these samples I had cut out of a film and wanted Chemo to put on a beat so we could put it at the beginning of the song ‘Peace to tha Gods’. He made the beat in front of me straight away in somewhere around 5 minutes.
14. We shot the Video for ‘Horse In The Hill (Quadrant)’ somewhere farrrrrrrr in Kent.
15. I didn’t realise there were forests like that in Kent, we were driving through these forests with Classic FM on playing the most amazing random music I had never heard before in this place that looked like fucking Canada it was a trip.
16. The Video for ‘Horse In The Hill (Quadrant)’ took 3 fullllllllllll days to shoot.
17. Space bitches is actually a continuation of a song i have with Drae Da Skimask called ‘Funky Caterpillar’ on a LP I did in 2012 called ‘Willows Midnight Gallery’.
18. The track called ‘Under The Bridge’ is a true story.
19. I wrote the song ‘Peace To Tha Godz’ cuz I was mad pissed off 1 day about feeling trapped in the city and being surrounded by a lot of stupid mentalities hovering around everywhere.
20. The whole process of the Album was super relaxed and fun as a motherfucker.
21. I defiantly want to work with chemo again on some different crazy shit on a different scale.
22. Goth chicks are hot.
23. Space bitches are not…hahaha nah they are 2.
24. Chemo is a wizard.
25. It was all recorded with good vibes and if u dig it u a cool ass motherfucker, if not beta get to dipping cuz if u don’t trip u aint hip to the game n won’t understand a thang. peeaaaccceeeeeeeeeeee
