finally, were treated to the epic closer that is camberwell beauty. mid tempo boogie beats with crunchy claps and steady hats lay the bedrock for a loping cs5 bassline whilst lush keys shimmer and swirl like little fluffy clouds in a bright summers sky.
tale of 2 cities (or t.o.2.c for short) is the culmination of what was just a whim of an idea from label owners mike & justin. it s the first of its kind for us & anyone who knows anything about kolour ltd should know that we shall leave no stone un-turned on a release of this magnitude. this 14 track, 3x12 vinyl compilation is a smooth journey throughout the realms of deep house, mid-tempo grooves, funk/soul, with an edit (or two) for good measure. disc 1 features the incomparable talents of jimpster (under his franc spangler alias), admin, ugly drums & lady blacktronika, henry wu, and the hue ft. kissy asplund. disc 2 features the fouk boys, frank booker, vincenzo de bull & halve soul, & inkswel. disc 3 features the talents of eddie c, napoleon, sleazy mcqueen & vinyladdicted, patchworks, and leblanc. 3 x lp in a trifold sleeve & poster.
new years deal - with toby tobias debut lp for delusions of grandeur dropping on the 16th october we wanted to give you a little taste of what to expect with a couple of tracks plus a brilliant remix from dog regular franc spangler. kicking things off we have the twisted machine funk of the wonder featuring vocals from atwell. 808 beats bringing the vintage electro vibes whilst atwells vocal hints at the golden era of chicago house, adding a soulful touch to the rigid groove. next up is only getting better, diving into deeper waters with bubbling pads and pulsing bass line. finally, we have franc spangler getting busy on the remix, turning in a floor focused jam which brings the vocal to the fore and a big beefy bassline to bounce to.
a fun little creation between label mates mike & justin that was wonderfully embraced & has now become a staple in the kolour recordings family of labels. upon approaching our 10th release, we wanted to seize the opportunity & reflect on the story thus far for kolour ltd & what better way to do so than with our pals graeme clark & craig smith aka 6th borough project
