VOICE MONET, “CARTS b4 HORSES (ROB)”
New Orleans emcee Voice Monet presents the Go’Head Media-directed music video for “Carts b4 Horses (Rob)”, her new single produced by Belgian DMC champion DJ Grazzhoppa. The video was conceptualized, shot and edited all in the space of two days as part of the 48Hour Music Video Project Challenge which was recently held in New Orleans. Voice’s debut album Gumbo dropped in 2006. “NOLA Redux” featuring Malkovich made the top of Gilles Peterson’s BBC World Wide Best Hip-Hop of 2009 list. She was teaching classfuls of New Orleans youth how to rap as an official Teaching Artist In Residence when Hope & Sorrow, the 2007 Decon/Atmospheriques release from celebrated French producer Wax Tailor, was certified silver. Between her solo releases and her collaborations with BBE, Ninja Tune, Canada’s Public Transit Recordings, UK’s Twisted Funk Records and Tailor, over a quarter of a million records worldwide bear Voice’s name. She has played internationally at major festivals (Montreal Jazz Festival 2013) and world reknowned venues (L’Olympia, Paris). “Sometimes my muse comes in the form of a man, and he just wants me to… rap!” says Voice about the song. “In this particular song I have chosen to call him ‘Rob’, but that inspiration comes in many forms and is expressed through several mediums.” Voice is gearing up to release her EP Black Maria in 2014 through her production company Go’Head Media.
