Who is the Creator?

上班不要亂聽廣播才是,紐約屌團實在是太多了真是可怕。
Santagold 去年被滾石列為十大期待的新人之首呢。
出生自費城,在紐約布魯克林發跡的Santogold 本名叫Santi White,爸爸是費城的已故名律師。小時候都念私校的黑人孩子,卻選擇了玩音樂,但她在滾石訪談卻說其實她一開始是不知道要幹才玩音樂的,本來是躲在角落被欺負的小孩卻因為這樣而開始變成風雲人物。

Santi white曾經學過古巴、海地跟西非手鼓等。後來在紐約的Epic唱片公司找到一份工作。
在Santagold之前曾經組了一個龐客團Stiffed。Santogold是她跟同是Stiffed的團員朋友John Hill一起搞的二人組合,這首讓我令人驚豔的the Creator單曲是改編重組自M.I.A.的專輯來的(難怪聽過的都說像)。根據滾石的說法,原來相熟的朋友。
滾石的報導很有趣,用一組方程式形容了Santogold的音樂像是M.I.A.乘上Yeah Yeah YeahsKaren O 加上80的synth pop鍵盤。
Santi說影響她最深的兩個藝人是Nina Simone 跟華盛頓DC的硬蕊龐客老團Bad BrainsH.R.,沒錯,有個性的人都愛壞腦子。首發12吋EPCreator的聽說已經在一月中發行,用不到三週的時間完成。她還受到Björk 的青睞受到邀請作為她巡迴演唱的暖場,葛萊美金曲製作人Mark Ronson 找她來替Lily Allen寫歌,看似順利的她其實也未必過的很風光,在BBC的報導中有說到2003年時候她父親過世並捲入了費城當地貪污事件,還遭到FBI的調查。White對於政府與媒體不當運用權力似乎非常的不以為然。
無論如何,希望2008年的開始White可以趕快弄出一張專輯來吧,我等不及啦~~~!!!

Creator Lyrics

Got no need for the fancy things
All the attention that it brings
Tell me no, I say yes, I was chosen
And I will deliver the explosion

Can't say it's gonna get me far
Do no good to say what you are
I run the streets and I break up houses
River runs deep and the flame devours it

Me, I'm a Creator
Thrill is to make it up
The rules I break got me a place
Up on the radar
Me, I'm a Taker
Know what the stakes are
Can't roll it back, it's understood
Got to play our cards

Sit tight I know what you are
mad bright but you aint no star
polish up til you make it gleam
your M.O, I know what you mean
Tail ridin' and I know it's true
while they screamin' I love you
Down deep you know there aint no flow
a soul decay, was D.O.A

I know what you here for now
Words out you're an idea whore though,
now don't you crush on me
I'll see you in your pipe dreams
whether or not you know it's true
You're who they dictate to
That shit must hurt real bad
fakin' what you wish you had


Here all the folks come ask about me
Band wagon, know they used to doubt me
Blind side tend to hit real hard
you should heed the warning, get a body guard
Steady friction in this bitch
Creepin' in just like an itch
so far I got the last laugh
still the rich rise up, still I live fast
wouldn't know it face to face
Got no soul and got no taste
Moving in speed up the pace
I got it locked though, what a waste
All the talk is standard fare
Walk the walk if it gets you there
on the grind til the gig is up
Im 'a smash 'em down
put a muzzle on them like "what!"
