Kia ora and welcome to issue #7 of the Soultearoa Shakedown fanzine. This edition and the party it accompanies are dedicated to all things female. We’re delighted to say that (almost!) all of the content featured in this issue is either written by or about women. Only one piece by a male is included – outside of this introduction – and that’s an interview I was lucky enough to conduct with the one and only Erykah Badu just prior to her first visit to NZ. Besides that, we’ve Top 5 lists from some of our favourite international and local music biz women (including Alice Russell, Vanessa Freeman, Bahamadia, Tyra Hammond, MC Tali, Bailey Wiley, Cherie Mathieson and plenty more, as well as all the ladies on the gig lineup); and a little other vaguely soul music related business – including the pictures on the opposite page of Tina Turner performing at the Auckland Town Hall in 1977 (hat-tip to Murray Cammick). The pictures on this page are taken from the 2nd annual NZ Soul All Dayer Mount Maunganui, at the Astrolabe. Huge thanks to our incredible host Michael Julian, and the rest of his team for looking after us so well once again. What a way to start the New Year! On the day we were blessed with a couple of sets from the Chocolate Box Deluxe (aka Lisa Tomlins, Vanessa Stacey and Ayesha Kee) and local whanau Toni Cooper, Pat Kingi and Campbell Ngata; alongside Jay Jeffrey, Gene Rivers, Scott ‘Doughboy’ Towers, Selecta Sam, Nyntee, Kirk James, Kirsty Hargreaves, Jubt, Kris Holmes, Pete Nice and Omega B. Maybe a Weekender next year…? The gig this issue is associated with is the debut ‘Wahine Ki Te Tane’ edition of the NZ Soul All Dayer. ‘Girls vs Boys’ is a battle we hope to repeat annually for so many reasons! Big ups to both teams taking part: Wendy Douglas, Rachael Sabin, Rose Alice, Kirsty Hargreaves, Phaze and Lanz; and Jay Jeffrey, Gene Rivers, Campbell Ngata, Kirk James, Pete Nice and Nyntee. Pat yourself on the back too for picking up this fanzine, having a read, listening to the tunes we’re spinning at the gig, and becoming – even if only for one night – part of our growing community of soul, funk, jazz, disco, house and rare groove loving folks… Because SOUL music isn’t a genre – it’s a FEELING! _______________________________________________________________________________ Edited by: David ‘Nyntee’ Carroll With a massive thanks to everyone who contributed to this issue… Alice Russell | Vanessa Freeman | Bahamadia | R.I.A. | Phaze | Huia Hamon | Kirsty Hargreaves | Lanz | Petra Rijnbeek | Natti Page | Bailey Wiley | Rose Alice | Sarahtonen Tali | Keshia Tunks | Vanessa Stacey | Philippa | Jennifer Zea | Victoria Spence | Mary-Anne Thomson | Cherie Mathieson | Tyra Hammond | Wendy Douglas | Rachael Sabin

MISS P aka PETRA RIJNBEEK Top 5: For The Soul

ERYKAH BADU Interview by Nyntee Hey Erykah – how are you? “Exquisite. Peaceful. Beautiful. Calm.” Welcome to the wonderful world of Erykah Badu. Erykah Badu is as famous for her deeply spiritual – some would say seriously weird – personal beliefs and influence on former partners Common and Andre3000 (OutKast), as she is for her award-winning debut album, ‘Baduizm’; but it really is her music that makes her a truly special artist. Her sensual blend of soul, hip hop and R&B allied to an undeniably sassy and classy attitude has set her apart from the pack for more than a decade – and it all began with a hugely successful album which exposed Badu to the kind of attention most folks would’ve struggled to deal with – but Erykah Badu is definitely not most folks: “I think it would’ve been difficult if I hadn’t been aware what business I was getting into, because you get into the music industry, you gotta sell units,” Badu states, “Then when something wonderful like gaining a cult following, multiplatinum sales and all that stuff happens, that’s some extra shit! I had my year like that in ‘97: won about fifteen awards, two albums came out, met the love of my life – one of ‘em – I had a son the same day my second album came out, met The Roots, started the Soulquarians; it was an amazing time for me. Just think: I had my whole life to write my first album. I took my time, and I feel I was rewarded greatly for something.” She pauses, gathering her thoughts: “But even with the career I’ve been afforded, the large platform I’ve been given and the great spotlight, we still have to keep evolving in everyday life. I’ve learned that, no matter what your position is, you still have a responsibility to the people around you and closest to you. My focus is on my evolving.” Part of that evolution has involved collaborating with artists like Common, Dilla, The Roots – all of whom Badu took both musical and personal pleasure from working with. “Common came to my place in Brooklyn one time, and we connected very, very well, became best friends,” Badu says, “With The Roots, I had ‘Baduizm’, but I didn’t have the song I thought would round the album out. So I got on the train, went to Philly, met with Amir [Thompson, aka ?uestlove of The Roots] and stayed at his house for a couple weeks, and came through with the rest of the album.” She continues: “I got to meet amazing people just doing that: Dilla. Madlib. Bilal. D’Angelo. SaRa. Jill Scott. It just connects like that. I think people who vibrate at the same frequency, kinda vibrate toward each other. They call it, in science, sympathetic vibrations when two things resonate at the same frequencies.” This was the Erykah Badu I was hoping to hear more from, and as it turned out, she didn’t need a lot of encouraging: “I don’t know if it’s because I just turned forty, but my mind is in another totally different place now, I don’t really give a fuck about anything right now – in the best kinda way,” she chuckles, “But since the earth is taking its polar shifts, as it does every 2500 years, it does something weird to the earth’s core, makes it heat up and you get these different disasters and things.” …continued…


“The Mayans said in 2012 there would be a shift, or an ending, or a beginning, or a return of something, and I think it co-relates with what’s going on with the planet. Because we are earthlings, very much connected with the planet, made of the same carbon and hydrogen and oxygen as the planet’s made of, it’s quite natural for us to behave the same way – it’s a recalibration.” While Badu’s explanation for the turmoil of recent years goes some way to justifying her reputation as a hippy, it seems there is a growing reaction to perceived injustices globally, from established protest groups to ordinary folks. “I don’t know a lot of details about what’s going on politically,” she admits, “I just feel that our children’s minds are a lot different to ours. That’s a result of being born in this age and time and frequencies where there’s karma that’s had oxygen and boron and all those other chemicals that are vital to our bodies, so I think our children are in a more unique, concentrated state. I just think it’s as simple as that.” “We’re evolving as a race and as a planet, and I do hope there’s some sort of rebirth, I can feel it,” she concludes, “But not without the labour pains first.” _______________________________________________________________________ Erykah Badu’s eldest son is named Seven. Here are seven of her most essential tracks…

1. Apple Tree (from ‘Baduizm’) Where it all began… 2. Call Tyrone (from ‘Live’) Has a “diss” ever been delivered with such sophistication as this? 3. You Got Me (from The Roots’ album ‘Things Fall Apart’) After the record label baulked at Jill Scott’s involvement, Erykah re-recorded Jill’s part and a classic was born – and Jill and Erykah are still friends too, apparently… 4. Plenty (from Guru’s ‘Jazzmatazz’) Listen to this track and try not to fall completely in love. We bet you can’t. 5. Bump It (from ‘Worldwide Underground’) Her languid, lyrical vocals in full effect on a track so laidback it’s almost sideways. 6. Love Of My Life (Ode To Hip Hop), with Common (from ‘Brown Sugar’ OST / bonus track from ‘Worldwide Underground’) A pairing of two of the most conscious artists in hip hop – also romantically involved at the time. 7. Turn Me Away (Get Munny) (from ‘New Amerykah Part Two: Return Of The Ankh’) A loose-limbed monster groove sampling the Roy Ayers/Sylvia Striplin classic ‘You Can’t Turn Me Away’. An edited version of this piece first appeared in Volume magazine (R.I.P.) in 2012. _______________________________________________________________________ BASE FM 107.3FM | Freeview CH71 | TuneIn App And streaming live www.basefm.co.nz
