I have already mentioned it here (http://melissa-on-the-road.blogspot.fr/2014/11/new-ear-old-times-remembering-robert.html) but I want to share again about this work between Massive Attack's icon 3D aka Robert Del Naja and Congolese musician Jupiter:
Massive Attack's Robert Del Naja's second release on his Battle Box label is a heavy, electronic collaboration with Congolese musician Jupiter Robert Del Naja & Jupiter Bokonjdi, the pair having met on an Afrika Express adventure in 2012.
Released on October 17, 2013, by The Vinyl Factory as a limited hand-numbered pressing of 300 with exclusive sleeve artwork by Paul Insect.
The Duo produced the tack named '3D On Jupiter' - or 'Battle Box 002'.

”In 2007 I went to the Congo with Africa Express. I was lucky to hang out and listen to some pretty amazing musicians, Jupiter among them.“This track is built with an unknown modular synth from Munich, a Moog and a Vermona drum machine, with help from Euan Dickinson and Tim Goldsworthy. And mixes by Bruno Ellingham. I wanted to mirror the energy and message in the song without complicating it. The b-side is a more relaxed and melodic using a Prophet 5 and a jupiter 8.It is the second release on the Battle Box label, which is made and distributed through The Vinyl Factory. Paul Insect has designed the covers and label art. Everything is screenprinted and limited in number.”
