“As Tempest’s gorgeous steams of words flow out, they conjure a story so vivid its as if you had a state-of-the-art Blu-Ray player stuffed in your brain, projecting image after image that sears itself into your consciousness” —New York Times
‘Wow’ — Chuck D
“Her works are truly of upliftment and betterment” — Roots Manuva
Big Dada is pleased to announce the signing of Kate Tempest to the label with her album Everybody Down. Kate is best known as a poet, perhaps a performance poet or a spoken word artist. She also has a novel coming out next year with Bloomsbury. But ask Kate what she is and she’s more likely to say she’s a rapper. That’s her true and first love. More of Skinnyman than Seamus Heaney, more of Deal Real’s legendary Friday night battles than a book signing and reading at Foyles. Everybody Down has twelve “chapters” telling one long, inspired story, a unique, one-off project and comes produced in its entirety by Dan Carey (Bats for Lashes, M.I.A . and Hot Chip.) The result is a revelation.
