after a rollercoaster twenty-five year career as an artist, curator and tastemaker, james lavelle returns with unkle’s fifth studio album: the road part 1.
the road part 1 is a collection of fifteen new unkle tracks inspired following his curation of 2014’s meltdown festival at southbank, their most successful to date.
the road part 1 is a collective creative venture by musicians including london folk-rock artist and poet keaton henson, primal scream’s andrew innes, the duke spirit’s liela moss, long time unkle collaborator mark lanegan, and mercury prize nominee eska.
lavelle also found new friends and collaborators in queens of the stone age drummer jon theodore and beck drummer justin stanley, who make definitive contributions throughout the record.
recorded in london and los angeles’ pink duck studios, the road part 1 is the product of a desire to create something fresh and innovative, that also celebrates the rich history of unkle, and showcases a new wave of talent such as elliott power, mïnk and yseÉ.
double 180 gram black vinyl, housed in a gatefold sleeve.
phase insane is proud to present el carton, the first collaboration between the madrilenians gale talk andunkle fon. this massive work will not leave anybody indifferent, as it is really unusual having music as original as the one they bring us. gale talk and unkle fon bring us two huge dark techno tracks produced over really deep melodic and groovy elements. these songs generate a massive effect in the dance floor as they are based in very hypnotic sounds which make listeners get into the groove from the very first moment. if this looks great, it becomes better when you listen the fantastic remix of el carton produced by the brooklyn based duo loud neighbor.

anders trentemoller has become one of the most respected names in cutting edge electronic music in the last few years. his rise to notoriety was sparked by his early, techy releases for poker flat and audiomatique and has since gone on to stellar highs with his own personal take on the genre, spanning, pop, rock, indie and classical. his debut album >the last resort< was released in 2006 to much international acclaim, and the producer also began to become an in-demand remixer in the house and techno world. as the decade wore on his sound continued to progress, opening up his studio to more live instrumentation, and a looser, rock-meets electronic vibe with his stunning >into the great wide yonder< lp. now this special double cd and double vinyl release celebrates some of the producer s favourite remixes he completed for other artists, and also some of his personal picks where other musicians have reworked his music.
roots music flourished in the 1970s as rastafarianism, black consciousness and self-determinization became the most important aspects of reggae music. bolstered by the international success of bob marley and burning spear (both who began their careers at studio one), roots music became the major musical development of reggae in the 1970s. coxsone dodd and studio ones connection to rastafarianism had begun long before the arrival of >roots music< as a distinct genre that arrived at the very tail end of the 1960s. by the start of the 1960s coxsone dodd was making his way to count ossie s wareika hills rastafarian compound to hear rastafarian drummers play whilst the skatalites front-line horns – tommy mccook, don drummond, johnny moore would jam alongside. similarly, count ossie would appear during sir coxsone s dancehall sessions, performing live at the height of the evening. this is the third in the series of rastafarian inspired music from studio one, and features classic foundation artists alongside some seriously rare tracks from the label. with the involvement of the crack studio house bands – be it the sound dimension, the soul defenders or the brentford road all-stars – as well as clement dodd and studio one seriously high quality control, these tracks are all a healthy addition to the pantheon of roots music at studio one. sleevenotes by david katz and stuart baker.
