TRU270BRITISH SOUL SENSATION ALICE RUSSELL TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM

‘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 PetersonDavid ByrneDennis 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).

Future Disco Vol. 6 Night Moves

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on February 4, 2013 by E.N.

Future_Disco_06_Future Disco welcomes in the New Year and a new age with its sixth episode, ‘Night Moves’. After more than half a decade of procuring and presenting their worldwide events and music series that forecast the ultimate in dancefloor magicit has become the ultimate chaperon into aural addictions.

Pitching the talents of current virtuosos against rising stars, ‘Night Moves’trawls definitive releases from as yet unknown artists and frames music that is familiar from the first listen.

Miguel Campbell opens the collection with ‘Not That Kind Of Girl’, a fresh Daft Punk inspired cut from his recent Hot Creations albumNeedwant talent Mario Basanov follows with his remix of the Motor CitySoul synth villain, ‘Playground’ and PBR Streetgang’s Bonar Bradberry, who is a staple for the Future Disco series, pays homage to early disco with the captivating ‘Loose Grip’, a tactile record ripe with boogie flavour.

Newcomers Monte and Lazaro Casanova both step up to the task with bass-infused rhythms and sharp snares marking where the night begins to deepen in intensity. An exclusive Future Disco edit of a/jus/ted melts the mood with chiming rhythms and 90s inspired vocals before the biggest artists on the project Groove Armada slow things down with a bomb set deep in the underground, ‘Always Take Me Higher’.

‘Night Moves’ highlights the rise of the females in 2012 with cuts from Laura Jones’ Love In Me’ (remixed by perhaps the most successful artist of the year, Maceo Plex) alongside Crosstown Rebels latest talent  Francesca Lombardo and the notorious Kim Ann Foxmann’s with her huge Needwant release ‘Return It’. Each made big waves in 2012 and are set to climb higher with album projects lined up in 2013.

Crazy P’s epic anthem ‘Heartbreaker’ climbs to the pinnacle of the party and exclusive tracks from Cosmic Kids and Satin Jackets steer it to a fulfilling conclusion.

‘Night Moves’ illuminates that the Future Disco flair for handpicking talent continues to mature, as it maps out an enticing ride into a night full of desire and pursuit.

Future Disco spent the summer of 2012 in Ibiza holding a residency at the biggest event on the island, Carl Cox at Space. They regularly host events at worldwide destinations such as Amsterdam and Helsinki, and are a bona fide tastemaker in a saturated musical landscape.

Random Soul – Live For The Moment(album preview)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 24, 2013 by E.N.

Random Soul - Live For The Moment‘Live For The Moment’ is the debut album from Random Soul, the Australian house duo of Yogi & Husky. The pair have made a big impression in recent years with releases for labels including Strictly Rhythm, Bargrooves, Salted and Large.  The album, released on their own label Random Soul Recordings, presents an effortless journey through 15 tracks that cement their position amongst the most established names in Deep and Soulful House circles, while also showcasing their talent in creating Soul, Jazz and Funk gems.

‘Live For The Moment’ incorporates everything from floating vocals and laidback soulful grooves riddled with live instrumentation, through to bumping, funky club tracks.  The album also highlights Random Soul’s talent as songwriters with a string of captivating vocals featuring strong hooks, often performed by Yogi. Six vocal collaborators include well-known West Coast USA artists Chuck Love and Joshua Heath, as well as Kristen Pearson, Kyla Sexton, Natalie Conway and Louis Hale.  All are close friends of Yogi & Husky, and the chemistry of the relationships shines through: “Working with friends always makes the job seem more fun too, so doing tracks with people like Joshua Heath and Chuck Love, usually meant more jokes and laughing than “work” per say. We enjoy getting other people in the studio as it creates such a different dynamic.”

Listening to these collaborations and the album in full it’s clear to hear where many of Random Soul’s influences lie, with the house sounds of Miguel Migs, Joey Negro, Grant Nelson and Groove Armada providing a strong focus, alongside funk and soul artists such as Rae & Christian and Smoove & Turrell.

The first single taken from the album is ‘Mysterious’ and will feature a Richard Earnshaw remix to be released late January / early February 2013.

Release Date:
4th Mar 2013
