A prime example of what happens when two crazy people come together to create at Big Village HQ. Roleoʼs driving Afro/Jungle style beat meets Muteʼs eccentric ragga style flow, screaming and chanting exaltations to life.
Fans will recognise Muteʼs melodic style and conscious lyrics from his collaboration with Verbaleyes, ‘Lingua Franca’ which was one of the stand out tracks on the Big Village compilation ‘Big Things Volume Two’ and was added to Triple J rotation in 2012. But the MUTE X ROLEO story goes back to their collaboration ‘Forever Breaks’ on ‘Big Things Volume One’ which was named as FBI’s album of the week and sparked a partnership that would eventually become MUTE X ROLEO.
“This is what Africa/Australia taught me, Reverse Polarities nurtured and Big Village encapsulated. Raw, concrete jungle meets barefoot bushman. The rest is sweat and fire, gyrating bodies in the moonlight.” Mute MC
