In April 2011 a new album entitled Street Clan was released. Invisible System have since released two double digital/download albums. Azmariz versus Acid Mali that delivered a mix of their work with Ethiopian Azmaris alongside a more stripped down acid sound from when Dan Harper was working out in Mali in 1999 with a very very basic solar powered setup. And Roots N Dub versus Beats N Trances delivering as told. A dub album was subsequently planned although cut short and delivered as the digital/download only Dub Triplets .

With a more aggressive tone than last years *Punt* (Made in Ethiopia), Street Clancombines a European base with a Jamaican groove and an Ethiopian feel. At first listen, I thought this CD would be great for a London or West Hollywood underground club. The second listen made me think it really needs to be played with hundreds of people in a mosh pit. After playing it everyday for a week, I finally realized this CD is perfect for one person in a mosh pit with hundreds of wild animals! This is mass confusion at its best! You will not be able to decide if you should go to a hip club or go on an African safari. Either way, the music is superb and the human expression is amazing. Street Clan has grabbed graffiti from an international wall and transferred the meaning behind it into music. With a cast of experienced musicians from around the world, Invisible System’s Street Clan gets another five star review! Check it out at *www.HarperDiabate.com* *www.allmusic.com* * / ITunes*** *Chris Nickson*There's a huge sea change between Invisible System's debut and this sophomore outing. Where the first was definitely based around Ethiopian music, this is a much more amorphous and adventurous beast. If it needs to be defined, it's a rock -- maybe even post-rock -- album. Ethiopia is still there, and some of the music was recorded in Addis Ababa. But many of the sounds were made in England using a truly staggering range of musicians, and there's a powerful Jamaican influence at work here, too. If you need an analogy, think of the work of Adrian Sherwood, or even some PiL (in fact, "Mutant Miners" sounds like it could be have been smuggled off some fantastical PiL album). This is world music in the sense that it was made by people from different parts of the globe coming together, but its roots are in the here and now rather than in any tradition. It's challenging, adventurous, and heavily textured; the tracks were recorded live and later chopped up and mixed, although you'd never notice the joints. It might prove to be one of the finds of 2011, a real sonic adventure that speaks highly of Dan Harper, the man behind it all. * New York Times Review* *– Jon Pareles* Invisible System – Street Clan * http://www.nytimes.com/2011/04/17/arts/music/cds-from-alison-krauss-colin-stetson-and-dennis-coffey.html?_r=1&scp=1&sq=street%20clan&st=cse* As an aid worker in Ethiopia and Mali, Dan Harper started recording local singers and bands. Then, as a musical project he called Invisible System, he started tinkering — extensively and transformatively — with what he collected, playing guitar, bass and synthesizers and adding collaborators. On Invisible System’s second album, “Street Clan” (Harper Diabate), the African sounds are melded with mean metal riffs, funk bass lines, dance beats, psychedelic guitar jams, dub-style echoes, the righteous declamations of a Jamaican-British reggae singer (Dennis Wint) and more. It’s a latter-day, more chopped up, more aggressive follow-through on the ideas of “My Life in the Bush of Ghosts.” The roiling results have some of the volatility of the Mars Volta and Jimi Hendrix and the implacability of Lee Scratch Perry. The reggae honors the Rastafarian tenet of a return to Ethiopia, although it sometimes tilts toward cliché. But the Ethiopian singers — Zewditu Tadesse, Tawebe and Mimi — are all grabbers: raspy and passionate, their voices leaping out of the tracks. *BBC Review (Robin Denselow 2011-04-21)*“More wild, frantic and unexpected than its well-received predecessor. ” It’s impossible not to admire Dan Harper. Until five years ago, he was an aid worker in Ethiopia, where he not only became fascinated by the country’s remarkable music scene but built his own studio in Addis Ababa and managed to persuade leading local artists to record with him. He also invited producer and bassist Nick Page, also known as Count Dubulah, out to Ethiopia and introduced him to his musical friends; as a result, Page formed his highly successful Ethiopian fusion band Dub Colossus. Once he returned to England, where he now works as an unconventional music teacher in the West Country, Harper continued work on a fusion project of his own. He persuaded an impressive selection of British musicians to add their contributions to his Ethiopian recordings, and the result was the album Punt, credited to a band Harper called Invisible System. It included a remarkable cast, from the legendary Ethiopian singer Mahmoud Ahmed through to punk hero Captain Sensible, guitarist Justin Adams and Count Dubulah; the results veered from African styles to psychedelic rock, trip-hop and dub. Although this was originally something of an obscure DIY release, Harper managed to bring his work to national attention, and won impressive reviews. Since then, the two Ethiopian fusion experiments have continued. Dub Colossus, now a rousing live band rather than merely a studio project, have a new album of Ethio-jazz and reggae fusions, Addis Through the Looking Glass, while Invisible System have a very different second set, Street Clan. Once again, the album is based around recordings that Harper made in Africa – this time in Mali as well as Ethiopia – to which he adds his own guitar, bass, synth programming, percussion and production work. Then there are contributions from a new set of Western musicians, including the great American guitarist Skip McDonald, Adrian Utley from Portishead, Stuart Fisher (who has worked with Courtney Love), and members of psychedelic hippie heroes Ozric Tentacles. Then there’s Jamaican singer Dennis Wint, who Harper met in the Somerset town of Frome, where he lives and works. Street Clan is even more wild, frantic and unexpected than Punt, with sections that work brilliantly and tracks where Ethiopian vocals are surrounded by a blitz of thrash guitar and percussion, results ranging from exhilarating to messy. The best tracks come towards the end, where the emphasis shifts from the clash of African vocals with full-tilt Western guitars, through to more conventional dub reggae. There’s still an African edge to Teenage Lion and Broken Heart, thanks to the vocal work from Zewditu Tadesse; but Wint dominates the songs with an energy and style that makes him sound like an unlikely male answer to early Patti Smith. * * *Nigel Williamson, Uncut Review : Ethiopiques Goes Global Chapter Two** *Invisible System's acclaimed debut Punt - Made in Ethiopia was a thrillingcontemporary re-imagination of the Ethiopiques sound, combining authentic African recordings with dub, drum'n'bass and electronic programming to create the sort of album Damon Albarn might make if he pitched up in Addis Ababa. Assisted by sympathetic fusionists from Portishead, Little Axe and Ozric Tentacles as well as a cast of African musicians - notably the brilliant voice of Zewditu Tadesse - the follow up is cut from similar cloth but shows even greater ambition, giving us such previously unknown genres as Ethiopian garage ("Zedanmer") and African motorik ("Bone Flaps"). INVISIBLE SYSTEM **** Street Clan (HARPER DIABATE RECORDS) *www.harperdiabate.com*Dave Haslam Rock N Reel / R2 Mag *Following Invisible System’s acclaimed, award nominated, debut Punt (MadeIn Ethiopia) comes this second eclectic helping of global fusion that once again knocks any preconceptions of ‘world music’ into a cocked hat. As with its predecessor Street Clan brings together Ethiopian musicians with members of bands as diverse as Hole, Portishead, Little Axe, Eat Static and The Ozric Tentacles and, just to make things even more interesting, adds a couple of Jamaican reggae vocalists, (Sydney Salmon from Shashamene, Ethiopia and Dennis Wint who Invisible System main man Dan Harper bumped into in Frome High Street) to the mix. Their involvement adds yet another dimension to an album that leads you along until you think you’ve got handle on proceedings before throwing a curve ball and setting off in a totally different direction. Spontaneous, joyous and full of sonic surprises it’s an unlikely endeavour where anything can, and often does, happen, with Ethiopian and Jamaican voices merging over music that ranges from beat heavy psychedelic guitar driven Krautrock (‘Live Up To Love’)to disjointed thrash-punk guitar and drums with traditional Ethiopian instruments (‘Mutant Miners’) and with every possible variation between. It really shouldn’t work, but it does and wonderfully so.* *BPM Magazine, South Africa, Damien Albetto* http://bpmmag.co.za/musicreviews/invisible-system-%E2%80%93-street-clan-harper-diabate-records/Album Review: Invisible System – Street Clan (Harper Diabate Records) ** Dan Harper aka Invisible System is known for fusing Ethiopian, dub,reggae, techno, trance , drum & bass with rock, folk and well, just about anything else that makes the music psychedelic. His album Punt (Made in Ethiopia) released in 2009 was met with wide critical acclaim as it challenged the conventional. Street Clan continues this trend of mixing up cultural styles as he delivers a mix of dark Ethiopian folkish songs with hippy electronica. The album is jam packed with so many well respected musicians; Adrian Utley (Portishead), Skip McDonald (African Head Charge, Grandmaster Flash, Little Axe, On-U-Sound / Adrian Sherwood, Tackhead etc), Merv Pepler (Eat Static/Ozric Tentacles etc); Stuart Fisher (Hole/Courtney Love), Zewditu Tadesse (Ethiopiques) and Dennis Wint UK/Jamaican Roots Reggae vocalist all participate amongst others. Street Clan is a lot more frantic than its predecessor, Punt, but nevertheless it has a certain charm and irresistible attraction that makes for an absorbing if not challenging listen. Thrashing guitars and frenetic beats meet Ethiopian folk songs in what can sound very cohesive at times and at others quite messy. An interesting listen nevertheless, particularly the quieter moments. The Daily Telegraph By Mark Hudson 08 Apr 2011 Harper Diabate, £11.99 Mixing dark-toned Ethiopian folk sounds with West Country hippy electronica, this enterprising DIY production draws in contributions from British indie players from Portishead to On-U-Sound System. Touches of Krautrock, dubstep and a certain raw, informal drive make this one of the more interesting of many projects inspired by the great Ethiopiques series The Financial Times – David Honnigman 4 stars! Whopping Crossbreed of Genres By TJNelson (World Music Network) – April 17, 2011Posted in: CD Reviews Invisible System - Street Clan Street Clan (Harper Diabate Records, 2011) Following up on their Songlines World Music Award Best Newcomer nominated CD Punt (Made in Ethopia), Invisible System, headed up by Dan Harper, is back with their sophomore recording Street Clan. Recorded in Ethiopia, Mali and the United Kingdom on Mr. Harper’s off time from his gig as an aid worker, Street Clan is another fantastical ride with guest appearances by Portishead’s Adrian Utley, Skip McDonald, Eat Static and The Ozirc Tentacles and percussionist Stuart Fisher. Delving into a razor-sharp otherworldliness, Invisible System tumbles headlong into an edgy course filled with plenty of twists and turns. Packed with 17 tracks, Street Clan is a whopping crossbreed of genres, covering the map from dance to dub to reggae to rock to post-punk and to psychedelia. With such a daunting cornucopia of sounds and divergent directions, I wonder if perhaps it wouldn’t have been wiser to break up the tracks into two different recordings. Personally, I found some of the post-punk, thrash tracks a little discordant with the overall sound. It’s one of those things where you have an idea of where the artist is going, but you’re not sure you want to follow. Listeners shouldn’t be discouraged because there are some excellent tracks on Street Clan. Invisible System’s vocalist Zewditu Tadesse hits the mark on opening track “Tizita” against an eerie background of electronic, shadowy guitar and clever percussion. Equally good is the track “Ambassel” with Mimi’s Azmari traditional band and backed by some slick guitar licks. Dipping into the edgy, “Bone Flaps” is all guitar fire, drums, bass and Zewditu’s vocals in a sort of African punk homage. Standout gems include the trippy reggae tinged “Woman’s Love,” the electronica charged “Live Up to Love” that screams trance joy and the hypnotic “Oumabetty” with its mix of rhythms, mournful sax lines and liquid vocals. “Teenage Lion” gets a jacked up treatment by Invisible System’s vocalists Zewditu Tadesse and the husky voiced Dennis Wint against a sway-backed reggae beat that pulses with sheer goodness.Street Clan is akin some wild and wonderful underground cave club where the musical colors keep shifting and you just can’t help jumping into the very center.

Other recordings available: Punt *fRoots Magazine (Jamie Renton)* **The origins of Dubulah’s project can be traced back to his stay out in Ethiopia as a guest of Brit producer/multi-instrumentalist Dan Harper, whose Invisible System project takes apparently similar ingredients to Dub Colossus with very different results. As on IS’s debut, 2009’s Punt, Harper has invited a whole range of performers from Ethiopia and also the UK’s alt rock and reggae scenes, to improvise something for him to play with, mix and generally sound-sculpt into a series of tracks which (when this process works), are greater than the sum of their disparate and off-the-cuff parts. Street Clan has got a more unified sound than its predecessor, an earthy rumble of rock, dub and Ethiopian influences, its lo-fi character driven as much by necessity (Harper wasn’t blessed with the record label patronage that allowed Dub Col their studio trimmings) as by choice. Like Dubulah’s album it’s a sprawling affair, checking in at nearly 80 minutes, and its rockier excursions aren’t to my taste. But there are some dirty-beautiful moments of musical transcendence here, especially when the combination of young Ethio singer Zewditu Tadesse and UK-Jamaican vet Dennis Wint roar and ride over the mutant dub-Ethiopiques-techno-rock backing. As with his earlier album, Street Clan repays repeated attention. • www.harperdiabate.com | Buy from Amazon.co.uk*Wednesday, June 8, 2011* *Invisible System--Street Clan--Not your Parent's Global-Au-Go-Go *I don't know precisely what it is about Invisible Clan, the musical collective overseen by Dan Harper, whether it is just great talent or the next generation of studio innovations. I have to believe it is a potent combination of both factors. In any event, I have to say I am pretty bowled over by this ambitious recording, which I heard about in the NY Times, of all places. The album strikes me as visionary. A very simplistic thumbnail description of Street Clan (their 2nd album after Punt) would be a collaborative synthesis of Ethiopian music, Jamaican music & fiery post punk. And the music is aggressive sounding. But there are even more things going on here than that, including psychedelia, funk, dance, electronic, Sub-Saharan African music and even some Sonny Sharrock styled fusion guitar. It's not easy to play in a variety of styles well. But when you mix these styles together, seamlessly weaving back and forth you are simply on a level of greatness. On top of this you have some great vocalists performing like Jamaican singer Dennis Wint and the unbelievable Zewditu Tadesse. Hearing him sing is simply revelatory. I think if Joe Strummer were alive today, he would be praising this music to the high heavens. Anyone who loves interesting music will definitely find a lot to love here. For me it does not get any better than the amazing Bone Flaps. For that song alone the album is worth purchase. A remarkable vocal by Tadesse, and its like he's being backed by New Zealand noise monsters Bailter Space. You have to hear this to believe it. Every time I listen, I hear new things, new instrumentations and subtleties. And righteous echoey dub. Songs like Bone Flaps and Mutant Miners are realizations of fusion music that were in my head. Fusion Music in the dynamic way I always wished it could be. Highest praise here. Check this out and be amazed. And I just checked out the website for Harper Diabete records. They actually manufacture their own high quality microphones in addition to making recordings.

Following their internationally acclaimed and Songlines World Music Awards Best Newcomer Nominated CD Punt (Made in Ethiopia), Street Clan is named after some graffiti Dan Harper found in Mali, West Africa. It is again not a pure world music album. It covers genres such as rock, dance, drum and bass, dub, reggae, Ethiopian, post-punk, kraut rock, pop, psychedelia and even this time rnb and dubstep. 17 tracks take you through a real journey of shockingly original pulsating sounds that tie to Punt but sound more accomplished and distinctive in style. The album was again recorded between Ethiopia, Mali and the UK whilst Dan Harper was aid working, with the mixing finished in country. Many known guests again feature on this album ranging from Portishead’s Adrian Utley and Skip McDonald (On-U-Sound / African Head Charge, The Sugar Hill Gang, Tackhead and Little Axe), to Eat Static and The Ozric Tentacles, an original Ethiopiques singer and Courtney Love’s drummer from Hole. Other vocalists include new Ethiopian talent as well as those Dan recorded on Punt and set up Realworld’s Dub Colossus with; two Jamaican roots vocalists, one who lives in Shashamene, Ethiopia with 3 generations of his family after leaving New York. It also features artwork by Bristol based graffiti artist Warp/Los Mutartis, a favourite of Banksy. The album bridges the connections between Ethiopia, Jamaica and the UK. Festival bookings are starting to take place with Invisible System having already played the main stages at e.g. Endorset, Thimbleberry and Music Port Festivals as well as support for Dreadzone. Radio play is inevitable with the previous album played on e.g. BBC 6, BBC 3, BBC World Service, BBC Asian Net, BBC London, BBC Bristol, BBC C&G, Radio New Zealand, Radio Prague, RRR Australia and countless stations around other European countries and the USA/Canada.
