It’s been a big year for Breach, a.k.a. Ben Westbeech. Almost too big, in fact. His track ‘Jack’ hasn’t just blown up on dancefloors across the globe: it’s laid waste to them. In the process, ‘Jack’ got to Number 9 in the UK charts. Not bad considering Westbeech has always seen Breach as an underground thing. “It’s been wonderful having a record that´s commercially successful,” he says. “The thing is not to lose sight of why you started making music in the first place. I wasn’t trying to get in the Top Ten. I just care about making deep records that I get off on.”
Take Breach’s DJ Kicks mix, for example. If all you know about Breach is ‘Jack’, you’re in for a surprise. Likewise, if you’re familiar with Westbeech as a vocalist—both solo (see his 2007 debut album ‘Welcome To The Best Years Of Your Life’ for Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label) and as a guest (he’s appeared on records by Deetron, Jazzanova and Jose James)—you might have to have a bit of a reappraisal. It’s closest in spirit to his 2011 album for New York label Strictly Rhythm, ‘There’s More To Life Than This’. The set of techno and house on offer here is deep. Very deep. So deep you could drop a 909 down it and not hear it hit the bottom. “This is the music that I love, the kind of thing that I play when I DJ,” explains Westbeech. “Imade ‘Jack’ and I play it, but there’s a lot more to the music I love than that.”

Keep Reachin’ Up drew praise from the media and audiences around the globe. The first single, If This Ain’t Love, became a dance floor hit from New York clubs to the UK’s northern soul circles. The second hit single, Feeling Free, was chosen as the Track Of The Year by the renowed music connoisseur Gilles Peterson in his Worldwide Awards in 2006. Keep Reachin’ Up was also listed among the Urban Albums Of The Year by Mojo magazine.The shining stars of contemporary soul music, Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators, re-emerge with their much anticipated album Tortured Soul on the Timmion Records label. The new album presents a new personal sound for the group, that was first heard in 2005 with their debut album Keep Reachin’ Up.
Naturally, this new album has all the qualities that made their cardinal album a worldwide smash; the raw production techniques of Didier Selin, Nicole Willis & The Soul Investigators’ unique songwriting and self-styled musicianship, and the sultry stylings of Pekka Kuusisto‘s string arrangements. Several tracks also feature horn arrangements and playing by the multi-talented jazz musician, Jimi Tenor. An equally new turn is the dusky sound of these raw tracks, which could be compared to the era when Motown stepped from their 1960s pop sound to more progressive times.
‘TO DUST’ COMES OUT ON APRIL 30 (NEW US RELEASE DATE)
ON TRU THOUGHTS
‘To Dust’ is the first solo album from British soul sensation, Alice Russell since 2008’s critically acclaimed ‘Pot Of Gold,’ and marks the next step forward in her remarkable career. Whether on a big stage with her 16 piece band, charming a crowd of 4000 into staying out dancing in the rain (as she did at Montreal Jazz Festival) or rocking out an intimate club with a stripped-down six piece,Alice’s natural talent and charisma have always commanded attention and affection. Unfazed by taking to the spotlight after a sober Amy Winehouse or joining Roy Ayers live for ‘Everybody Loves The Sunshine’, it is no wonder she has attracted worldwide media support, and praise from fans as diverse as Gilles Peterson, David Byrne, Dennis Coffey, Massive Attack’s Daddy G, and Groove Armada.
Tru Thoughts have recently announced the signing of this new solo material for territories including the UK, Americas, Australasia and Japan; reuniting Alice Russell with the label that introduced her to the world, and where she released her first three albums, as well as myriad collaborations since (including the highly acclaimed, BBC 6Music Playlisted “Look Around The Corner” single and album with Quantic earlier this year).

All Ain’t The Same is a collaboration between Bristol producer Ben Dubuisson, AKA Hundred Strong, and Glasgow singer/songwriter Joseph Malik. Having recorded the title track, All Ain’t The Same, for previous label Altered Vibes some seven years previously, the full length collaboration has been some time in the making. However, it was only a chance conversation early in 2012 between Dubuisson and Malik that led to an exchange of ideas and the completion of the long vaunted project.
Working from his basement studio in central Bristol, Dubuisson sent instrumental files to Malik who drew upon his years of musical and life experiences to create a soulful yet cutting sound. The process was then completed with the addition of live musicians, including Kasbian trumpeter Gary Alesbrook and long time Hundred Strong hammond player Evan Newman. Finally, Dubuisson introduced Malik to fellow Glasgow singerLouise Berry, AKA Lou Angel, who was brought in as backing singer. Through their vocal collaborations a relationship developed which resulted in them getting together outside of the studio. Is there strength in numbers? In this case the collaboration of Hundred Strong and Joseph Malik proves there is.
The single, All Ain’t The Same, was featured on Giles Peterson’s Worldwide BBC radio show several weeks running, and previous single, Dream On Delay, featuring Alison Crockett was nominated for Giles Peterson’s Worldwide end of year awards show.

DOBIE ‘WE WILL NOT HARM YOU’ ALBUM OUT 4TH FEB (BIG DADA)
Dobie is a legendary figure in British bass music and beyond. From working on the first two Soul II Soul albums, he went on to produce London Posse’s all-time classic “How’s Life In London?” before recording a solo LP for Pussyfoot, “The Sound Of One Hand Clapping,” which went some way to defining the “trip hop” sound now enjoying something of a rebirth. In between he has remixed everyone from Bjork, Massive Attack, Les Negress Vertes and Tricky to Gangstarr, Wooky and Wiley and recorded for a host of labels including Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood and BBE, as well as producing and mixing for the aforementioned Roots Manuva. And that’s before you even get into his time as a legendary skateboarder and a photographer of that crowd as well as the nascent UK hip hop scene. A truly amazing figure, his role in Black British culutre from the ’90s onward is a story waiting to be told. His new album, “We Will Not Harm You,” will be released on Big Dada in February 2013.
