REEL PEOPLE MUSIC VINYL SAMPLER (GREEN COLOURED VINYL)
coloured 12" Vinyl UK08.11.13
after forging a formidable collaboration on the album future retro with songs such as do better, tell me now & bring me joy, the layabouts & portia monique link up again with a brand new single for 2013.
the layabouts are anything but. 2012 marks leigh darlow and alex paschalis 10th year together and they have never been so in form or demand. their cast iron reputation for quality deep soulful house – house music forged with feeling and real purpose – continues, impressively, to grow.
rhythm master darlow and guitarist cum orchestrator paschali first met in 2001– in home city london – off the back of various projects in the same studio space. in time, their mutual love of expressive house music would lead to cult licks feelin right and the way i feel, sizzling material for kenny dope gonzalez and hot-to-trot remixes of dj spinna, da lata, dj spen and robert owens, and soulsearcher.
star is reel peoples latest smile maker and features the beautiful vocals & lyrics of one of the worlds finest soul voices, tony momrelle. tony has been a man very much in demand over the last decade having toured with legends such as sade, whitney houston, take that & of course being the front man for the institution that is incognito.
part 2 of the single culled from this soulful house full length on defected this part has 4 mixes with the club and the album mix being previously available and 2 unreleased mixes from osunlade of which both are super sexy jaunts packed with conflicting jazz chords and a heady helping of digital beats
we are very proud to present our next release in the series -various people-. the first tracks comes from the very respected and highly in demand us artist -reelsoul-, reelsoul delivers a classic underground vibe, raw beats and harsh organ stabs, one for the heads! next up, true to our plastik people tradition another track from the vaults! this time we see c & m productions track -possible-, this track originally came out on the lesson one ep back in 1997 ,which to this day is extremely rare and hard to find. last up, label boss marc cotterell delivers a new track under his -cotterell- moniker, striped down beats from that 95 era, organ stabs, old school vocals and a baseline that will destroy any dance floor. very much reminiscence of early kot who he loves and respects very highly
a record which was originally slated for the fee records catalog, but never made the cut... one life to live was released on the private 4 reel label in 1980, limited to local distribution of only a small handful of copies. its back, but we are sad to say the artist passed away last year before he could see his re release realized.
the list of musical highlights for vincent williams aka dj spinna are too numerous to list, from his seminal hip hop duo jigmastas and dj sets across the globe, to his iconic solo productions and remixes. but if you ask him, it s the relationship he s forged with personal hero stevie wonder that spinna considers to be his single greatest achievement.
