Sovereign Nation – The Void Speaks

To mark the launch ovoidf the new beats and electronic music label Smho Wal (pronounced ‘Smoh-Wow’), the label have dropped a free digital download by the elusive duo Sovereign Nation entitled ‘The Void Speaks’. It’s paired with a very limited 7″ vinyl run, which contains exclusive bonus beats on the flip, that can only be found on them few records. Each is hand stamped and numbered, with a unique character drawn on each by artist SupaSaiyan. Just 11 copies were made, so sadly I’m sure they will have all sold out by the time you read this. However, the first full release is to follow in the form of a 12″ EP from ‘Dusty Ohms x SupaSaiyan’ coming in the summer. Definitely a release and label to look out for!
