“/ʔ/, /θ/ & /ð/” – Ziska Killat

Your first language is nostalgia. When I learnt to spell at school They told us not to say “SS” But “double S’’. What do you know about mouths? You have to stamp your little letters With spit to send them out. Who got to pick the sound of your voice? Do not say “SS”. “S”s require spit. They draw attention. How old is all this intention? Just born and full of sounds Your first language is nostalgia. Be observant of the stops. This one is full of stops. Do not say “SS”. Do not say “socialism” anymore either. Obstruct the airflow in the vocal tract Before vowels. Prevent vibration. Mouth dry and pausing. Wait, neatly – accommodate – attention. Your first language is nostalgia. Your first language comes with stories. So make good use of your teeth. Fought, sought, thought – Thinking, thoughts. Cause turbulence, Plot holes and dental friction:...

The DubTalk ft. Hamza

Hamza’s newly released EP “Tracks from Mars” was one of the key windows we got into the outcome of his practiced craft. He performed the EP’s title track as well as “One Two”, both tracks clearly demonstrating his self professed obsession with writing short, dense lines painting tales in pictures. His performance of his poem “Impassable Stretches” was our second opportunity to see him at work, albeit in a different frame of mind. For Hamza, rap and poetry occupy two distinct modes of expression that, although sometimes utilizing the same techniques, scratch different pieces of his artistic itch. If you’re pressed for time, you can see the performances on our new series “TRAX”, which is a compilation of all of the performances from The DubTalk.Related Links: Raymond Antrobus‘ collection of poems The Perseverance.
