Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


Born in Brussels and raised in Cape Town, Yannick Ilunga a.k.a. Petite Noir, has undeniable roots in the tradtions of both African beats and Post-Punk. They combine electronics, guitar, and varied vocals into a heavenly arrangement. MotherFather, their second studio album, is sure to be a banger.

Limited to 500 copies, the VMP exclusive version of Petite Noir's MotherFather is pressed on Transparent Sun Yellow vinyl at Optimal Media Production (OMP). The 1LP will arrive in a single, direct-to-board, foil-stamped and numbered jacket with a download code. It was mastered by Paul Movahedi.
