SFRstore exclusive!

The first official video from the album is “To Young Leaders”! Check it here and get your free download below:

Guante is a rapper, two-time National Poetry Slam champion, activist and educator. Big Cats is a visionary producer and multi-instrumentalist who has worked with Sage Francis, P.O.S., TTxBC and others. Together, they’ve crafted an album brimming with substantive punchlines, gallows humor and a down-to-earth political edge, all over some of the most gorgeously banging production of the year. Featuring indie-rap visionaries like Toki Wright, Crescent Moon (of Kill the Vultures), Kristoff Krane and more, “You Better Weaponize” is one of the tightest, smartest, most singular projects ever to emerge from the lauded Twin Cities underground hip hop scene.

Download the first single, “To Young Leaders”, FREE from the SFR Soundcloud!

Dan Le Sac’s solo debut CD “Space Between The Words” now available!

Dan Le Sac’s solo debut CD “Space Between The Words” now available!

An SFRstore US Exclusive, only available here!

SFR vet dan le sac (one half of the DLS Vs Scroobius Pip superduo) has dropped his debut solo album!

Written, produced and with vocals from dan himself, the album features collaborations with Emmy The Great, Merz, Sarah Williams White, B Dolan, Joshua Idehen and Pete Hefferan.

CDs will come SIGNED by dan le sac! Click here to order yours.

“With this album,” dan ventures, “working with so many different people, writing songs, it brought the producer in me back to the fore, in fact, it made me imagine never doing a gig again.” Fans of his long-standing partnership with Scroobius Pip needn’t worry, he doesn’t mean the last part – in fact they have gigs forthcoming – he’s just reveling in his creative reinvigoration.

Taking a step sideways from the percussive atmospherics that were the backdrop to Pip’s words on Top 40 albums “Angles” (2008) and “The Logic of Chance” (2010), dan embraces everything from electro-pop to psychedelia, all accompanied by an impressive array of vocal talent.

Dan le Sac’s reputation for vibrant good times at festivals and club nights is unarguable, but he’s also proved with “Space Between The Words” that he’s a lot more than simply the bloke behind the bloke with the big beard. He’s a musical force to be reckoned with and in “Space Between The Words”, an album dan le Sac has created a smart, zingy debut shot that will appeal to fans of indie, dance, hip hop, electronica and much else besides. It’s one to file alongside Metronomy, Hot Chip and Field Music as a sharply individual snapshot of modern pop’s endless possibilities.

01. Long Night Of Life Feat. Merz (4:21)
02. Play Along Feat. Sarah Williams White (3:57)
