Unless you speak Welsh, “Celwydd” is going to be a pretty hard title to commit to memory, so you’ll have to make an extra effort for this one. Come March, you’ll have thanked yourself for being so prudent.
Y Record Las is a compilation released via Recordiau Lliwgar (translated as Colorful Records) and is the first in a series of similar nature. The entire record consists of a variety of brand new songs by some of Wale’s leading artists.
“Celwydd” (translated “Lie”) is a mellow dive into future garage. It moves slow, but its presence is large, like a majestic lumbering spirit on a peaceful ascent to the stars (see Princess Mononoke).
It’s a mystery what the rest of the album will sound like, but “Celwydd” is a great first look. Follow Dafydd for more on the producer.
