What will this year’s Ibiza track be? Who cares, most youngsters this year will be staying home and staying in thanks to the credit crunch…and swine flu. Rather than a night out on the tiles in sunny Spain, the sound of this summer is that of a pizza or Chinese takeaway and a carry-out from the off licence. And the summer’s suitable soundtrack to this stay-at-home action should be Dubrobots’ AyePizza chillout remix of Wyn Williams’ “O Fri”. And before you ask, it doesn’t really translate from Welsh, thus answering the too-oft asked question “Why Welsh?” Why not ask the BBC’s Welsh language station Radio Cymru who have already picked up on this clubbed-out classic.
This is the sound of ‘staying in is the new going out’ as the robots of dub ( dubrobots.blogspot.com) make an audio assault on Welsh acoustic pop (www.last.fm/music/wyn+williams ) to create an ambient soundscape for the Sunday morning after the night before. If the Ibiza sound was that of a thousand lost souls slowly losing their minds in rhythm, this is the comfortable sound of horizontal happiness without ever having to leave the bedroom. Apart from for comfort breaks perhaps. nastyvulturerecords are proud to present and promote that the track “O Fri” will be available to buy from iTunes from Monday 3rd August 2009 under Wyn Williams’ name. Or ‘Wyn Williams with Dafydd ap Llwyd featuring Dubrobots’ to give its full-on title.
Dafydd ap Llwyd being the band of great renown. For an interview with Wyn Williams contact email@example.com “O Fri” released by the nastyvulturerecordings of great renown. Published by www.sentricmusic.co.uk also of great renown.

And listen to it. Great news indeed, pop pickers.
All the more reason then that you would think that one Wyn Williams, an artist just releasing his debut ep on iTunes that features his song “On the Buses”, would have a reason to be cheerful. As well as being Welsh, that is. However, due to what themTunes would doubtless ascribe to a ‘technical error’, the debut EP in question has been misnamed Darn Back EP rather than its intended name, “Darn Bach”. “I wanted to call it “Darn Back”, as that’s Welsh for ‘A Little Piece’, or ‘a little bit’ if you want; as well as being someone cursing Johann Sebastian Bach for writing music that’s so difficult to play well on the piano. Either way then the name of the EP would have been a musical one.
“Darn Back” is not only monolingual but also sounds like a North American golfer who has over-extended himself,” said a very-nearly-irate Williams from his home near Cardiff. Despite this below-par performance from the powers that be, Williams is not one for taking it lying down from the Man. An online campaign sparked from his blog seems to have caught the imagination; “I wrote a none-too-serious little bit on the whole matter; suggesting that people should boycott iTunes for their glaring insensitivity to the Welsh language, and actually it’s really caught on. According to the latest figures, so far nearly four billion people have boycotted the Darn Back EP on iTunes.” Croeso to the campaign! email firstname.lastname@example.org . Wyn Williams ? Wyn is a Welsh guitarist and singer/songwriter who first came to the attention of the Welsh media in 2007 through his recordings and gigging in London. His Darn Bach EP features his ‘classical’ instrumental Spanish Elbow Orchestra that’s been played on Adam Walton’s Magical Mystery Tour radio programme, as well as the title piece that has received the same accolade. “Spanish Elbow Orchestra is very very lovely and great, I would play that on the radio many, many times,” was Adam Walton’s comment on the piece. Gigging under the name of Monkey Sea Monkey Doo in London, Wyn played in the 12 Bar and the Sway bar in Central London as well as numerous other nights in and around the city.
Since moving back to Wales last year, he has already played gigs in Newport and Barry. www.myspace.com/monkeyseamonkeydoo As Dafydd ap Llwyd he records and plays in Welsh, including airplay this year on BBC Radio Cymru’s Lisa Gwilym www.myspace.com/dafyddapllwyd ; as Wyn Williams he is just himself. Wyn’s favourite description of his music is from one of those online review sites : “I suspect from hearing it that the musician has a unique and perhaps gimmicky way of playing the instrument (guitar?) - this might add something to the song (a chance to circulate through tv and festivals as a minor celebrity) - but listening to this without any visual cues was perhaps not the best way to understand what is going on.” (Anon Music Scout, 2007) That just about says it all, but if you’re still confused try a video at the usual suppliers www.youtube.com/dafyddapllwyd .
