2010 release by this project from Bristol-based musician Scott Hendy. Anyone who has seen the recent Bansky documentary Exit Through The Gift Shop has likely heard Diego & The Dissidents though they may not have realized it. An album that almost never saw the light of day, now resurrected just in time to see brilliant tracks such as -Contaminated Water Pt. 4- and others add depth and intrigue to a film already featuring an -against all odds- theme.

The band consists of Bristol producer Scott Hendy, a creative DJ and producer with years of experience behind him, and Venezuela native Diego Martinez, a mysterious multi instrumentalist. Having met through mutual friends and sharing a love of both 60s psych, hip hop and 70's failed pop, they decided to collaborate and record music, initially with no plan of bigger things. Unfortunately Diego had to head back to Venezuela suddenly in 2009 for family reasons. Having left Scott with all the sound files, he went about messing with hour�s worth of sessions to slice together this cut up instrumental gem of an album.

The album can be compared to listening to the encyclopaedia of contemporary music, covering various genres of music from golden era hip-hop to rock, via revered break beats, dub, and classic guitar riffs. The overall result is an intriguing musical journey, that twists and turns, when you least expect it and you could while away the hours naming the musical references.
The album artwork was designed by Marc Beasant, whose previous album credits have included Portishead and Peter Gabriel/Real World, amongst others. There will also be a short visual for Contaminated Waters PT3 by Bristol Based Minto Films to keep the audio and visual connection strong.

Aside from this release, Hendy has other projects such as the eclectic two-piece Malachai (signed to Domino Records) described as 'musically daring' by the NME. Scott�s heavy influence of hip-hop beats has been the main reason for the band�s praise by the likes of Radio 1�s Zane Lowe and Kasabian�s Serge Pizzorno. Scott�s success has also interested Tom Findlay of Groove Armada who thinks of Hendy�s music as a 'great mix of contemporary and classic' Malachai have supported much-admired artists such as Groove Armada, Doves and Mr Hudson, it seems like Diego and the Dissidents will be ones to watch this year.
