London, UK (PRWEB) May 6, 2008
Sputnik7 (http://www.sputnik7.com), an established online video portal, has secured exclusive rights to broadcast the first two chapters of Brownpunk's eagerly awaited nine chapter film.
Not content to receive rave reviews for his seven solo albums - including Maxinquaye which was nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and voted Album of the Year (1995) by NME Magazine - trip-hop musician Tricky is now looking to build upon his impressive CV by releasing his nitty-gritty directorial debut 'Brownpunk The Film.'
Tune into Sputnik7 to catch the trailer and countdown to the launch here:
The mock documentary, which has been produced by legendary music entrepreneur and Brownpunk partner Chris Blackwell, is an edgy and innovative take on today's competitive music business. The movie begins with a montage of clips, stills and graphics visually introducing the main characters including many of Brownpunk's artists such as Face, 1st Blood, Engine, Kira and The Dirty. Face's track '8 millimetre' and 1st Blood's 'Connecting People' make for an impressive soundtrack.
Tricky has always placed the focus on talent and creativity so it's only natural that the star chose to promote his new indie music record label, Brownpunk, in such a creative and inspiring way. The movie certainly boasts an impressive line-up. Alongside Brownpunk's numerous artists, Elliot Gould -- star of Ocean's Eleven -- can be found playing Eira Geld, depicted in the film as a nasty American hot shot money lender.
Brownpunk The Film has a very underground feel and by mixing a wide variety of photographic effects alongside an exceptional soundtrack, Tricky has produced a groundbreaking film which proves that Brownpunk is the uncompromising and creative future for indie music.
Brownpunk the film includes nine chapters; Sputnik7.com will feature an exclusive online video broadcast of the first two chapters. Sputnik7.com, the established indie music destination, is host to a sophisticated mix of independent film and music videos and is the sister site of online video portal, Audiotube.com.
