Cuba

Biography

Conceived at a residence get together in Brixton, London, England, Cuba surfaced in tandem with artists such as for example Groove Armada and Basement Jaxx. Nevertheless, the desire of companions Ashley Bates (b. 2 November 1971, Reading, Berkshire, Britain; ex-Chapterhouse) and Christopher Andrews to combination all types of musical limitations distinguished Cuba off their more-focused peers. A prolific begin to 1998 in the form of three white brands attracted the improbable interest of 4AD Information, who released an additional single ‘Combination The Series’ in July. The next hiatus in the studio room allowed Cuba to show their perception in a solid live show, executing using a brass section, rapper and a bunch of support and guest performers at summer celebrations and across European countries. Their self-produced debut, Step Of Faith, gathered every one of the singles up to now, and uncovered the conference of brutal beats and different improbable genres to be always a hit-and-miss affair. The winding groove of ‘Maximum Movement’, the brooding ‘Dark Isle’ (starring Shara Nelson), as well as the glowing, country-tinged ‘Winter season Hill’ had been undermined by having less subtlety somewhere else. The leaden acoustic guitar riffs and unsophisticated rapping on ‘Havana’ and ‘Mix The Range’ echoed the sound of Apollo 440, as the slip blues of ‘Foxy’s Den’ was evocative from the Grid. Such inconsistency led the listener towards the unsatisfactory summary that eclecticism was maybe Cuba’s worst foe.

1 [on his biggest disappointment] I wanted to meet Quentin Tarantino for Django Unchained (2012) but he had Jamie Foxx in mind - that one hurt.
2 Steven Spielberg came to me and said, 'I want you to be in Amistad (1997) and I said, 'It's a slave role; show me the money. I'm so a big thing,' and he goes, 'I can direct you.' and I said, 'No, I have to pass.' To me, at the time, I remember this interview I read (with) Christopher Reeve talking about Superman. What other role could live up to being Superman; he was Superman. I bought into that. People were telling me (of Jerry Maguire (1996)), 'You're black, it's a comedy role, you're not gonna win this thing.' So, when I won it, it was like I had all these things in my life - 'This is what you are, this is what you've become... Now represent that. I have arrived and now I have to live up to this thing.' (I didn't know) the next day I should have rolled up my sleeves and said, 'OK, now let's continue on this journey.' Creatively, I stopped myself.
3 [on his most embarrassing moment] That Oscar win, when I jumped around that damned stage!
4 [on his final audition for Jerry Maguire (1996)] I came in there and did everything I had to do and the rest was history. So it was never like me sitting going, "Ah, there's Tom!" [Tom Cruise] To me, it was like that son of a bitch was holding me back from doing what I had to do.
5 I have never made a decision based on race and never will. I am admiring of my fellow peers, black filmmakers and black actors and actresses. When [Halle Berry] and [Denzel Washington] won Oscars, I felt pride because I was black, but never did I analyze their win based on color.
