When London quartet Sons of Kemet released their debut album 'Burn' last year (out now on Naim Label), no one could have predicted the impact that it made. The band won a MOBO, featured on many 'Albums of the Year' and 'Best Of' lists from iTunes to the Quietus and gained a reputation for incendiary live shows. Unsurprisingly, remixes started to appear, but two in particular caught the eagle eyes of their record label Naim Audio. Rather than consign these masterful reinterpretations to the digital domain, Naim Audio Label decided to go one step better and release the tracks on vinyl.
'Going Home' was the Sons of Kemet track in question and to sidestep conformity even more, it was decided to release the remixes on a 45rpm 12” inch single, with a remix on a side each, and not to include the original (this was a difficult decision of course, being very fond of the original too). And so White on Black was born: a series of 45rpm 12” singles on heavyweight black wax, all of which will be limited and numbered to 300 copies. In the true spirit of the white label culture that inspired the series, 'Going Home' will be the first of these special releases.
