Doves The Universal Want Indies and High Street Retailers exclusive LP is on 'white' coloured vinyk. Both LPs are packaged in a gatefold sleeve and include a download code. LP Set is packaged in a box with a lenticular cover of the album art. Includes an exclusive picture disc LP, a cassette tape, a 12" remix vinyl, 12" x 12" art prints, postcards and a download code. Numbered, limited edition. The highly anticipated fifth full length from Doves, their first record in over eleven years. Buoyed by refreshed chemistry, restless studio creativity and public reaction to their return. Only the second track and first single proper to be revealed, Prisoners forces attention upon itself, not least with the poignancy of Goodwin’s repeated greeting to ‘old friends’, but as an unstoppable, driving tale of caution in a world of unending desire. Produced by Doves with Dan Austin and recorded at the band’s own Frank Bough Sound III studios in North West England, the high heat of its Northern Soul beat is fanned by wiry guitar breaks and cuts of ethereal noise contorting beneath layers of stacked vocals. A statuesque musical statement, Prisoners guides Doves’ second chapter to a peak now within touching distance, the lyrics contrasting to express unease with modern ills. Virgin / EMI CD | LP
MNEK Language The first full length album from MNEK, big and soulful influenced RnB tunes. This album is so special to me because it’s something I’ve put my heart and soul in to writing and producing and singing (and apparently rapping too!). I’ve waited for the day my debut album is released my entire life, so naaaaaturallyy I’ve designed it to be listened to from start to finish - so every song flows into each other in a way that tells a sonic story. I’ve learnt so much as a musician over the years and most importantly as a young man - and I’m excited to share with you all what I’ve learnt so far!” Virgin EMI CD | LP
Paris Green / Tammi Terrell / Marvin Gaye Oh Yes This has all the hallmarks of a dance classic and one we should be really excited about. The vocal used on the track is indeed that of music legend Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell. Mitchel ‘Paris Green’ Kelly was discovered by Kölsch on his BBC Radio 1 Residency show through his track “You Got To Try”, which became demo of the month and shortly got signed by Damian Lazarus for his Rebellion/Crosstown Rebels imprint. The E.P. release received support from Pete Tong, Kölsch, Steve Bug, Damian Lazarus. The seed was planted and Mitchel began branching out, going off the beaten path, to create his personal style. With a natural interest in art, design and fashion, Mitchel started Paris Green in 2017. Creating hypnotic dancefloor grooves with soul and jazz aesthetics. He decided he needed to know the classics, because you can't know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been and that’s where he found Marvin Gaye’s 1967 ‘If I Could Build My Whole World Around You’ The track features Marvin Gaye and Tammi’s original vocals. Support is coming already from Damian Lazarus and many others at club. Virgin EMI 12"
