Melanie Durrant “Lifted” (prod by Slakah the Beatchild)

Well, word is Melanie Durrant and producer/singer Slakah the Beatchild have nearly completed a record, which will be released early in 2010.  One of The Academy crew actually shot the photography for this release, so keep an eye open for those images connected to the release.

I’m very excited about this, as I’ve always been a big fan of Mel’s sweet voice/lyrics, however, the past album unfortunately didn’t seem to quite fit her on the production tip.  There were some definitely highlights, but overall the album didn’t have a cohesiveness that I would have liked to see.

The Slakah collaboration however is a great look for Melanie, with the organic and vibey feel of Slakah’s production, makes me really look forward to this one.
