London-based label, Def Pressé are very pleased to announce their partnership with legendary Library Music label KPM. Def Pressé and friends have been given exclusive access to the KPM Library. These projects will take shape as two types of record. Def Pressé Editions/KPM Crate Diggers are works built around samples from KPM releases amongst other Library Music catalogues. Def Pressé Editions/KPM Originals are brand new pieces of music, free from samples. Both of these series’ include some very special guest vocalists and musicians as well as the Producers/Arrangers themselves. All of this music will be released by Def Pressé and placed into the vaults at KPM Library Music.
Following Conversation Peace’s lead single “Four Better Or Worse (Pt. 1)” (Feat. Nitty Scott), “God Speed” is a memorable work, and the first collaboration from Damu and Blu since the two artists released Ground and Water together in 2019. Easily in the tradition of Blu’s reputation for thought-provoking lyricism, “God Speed” is classic material, from Blu’s opening hook to Damu’s closing scenes of drum rolls and dramatic textures. A Blu fan in his own right, Damu knew the instrumental would be ideal for the rapper once he discovered the main sample after hours of exploring KPM’s vast library. “I knew Blu would know exactly what to do with this!” says Damu. The string composition provided a great sense of power and emotion that led the producer to the song’s namesake. In fact, when Damu presented the track to Blu, the only direction given was the two words, “God Speed.”
