Fehler Kuti - Professional People (Alien Transistor, LP/digital)

Julian Warner's pseudonym already indicates that he understands music as a carrier of political ideas in a very Germany-specific context. After all, Schland Is the Place for Me was the name of his debut as Fehler Kuti. The title Professional People is also ambiguous, though the experimental pop with jazz leanings is being accompanied by a very direct and unmistakable statement from its creator: »This is music for the square in the room. For that reluctant BAME/Person of Color who would rather talk about class relations than identities and positionalities. Resist these politics of representation.«
