Four Tet Late Night Tales The first time on vinyl for this compilation, originally released in 2004, selected by Kieran Hebden aka Four Tet as part of the Late Night Tales/Another Late Night series. Kieran Hebden's 'eclectic' compilation. From sun-kissed 60s psychedelia, (Manfred Mann, would you believe?), to cosmic jazz, to skull-crunchin' hip-hop, (Gravediggaz), and Terry Riley's tape-loop cut-ups, seriously entertaining and even educational take on the chillout comp. Highlights include Icarus' digital jazz deconstructions, the indescribable beauties of Linda Perlhac's Parallelograms and Koushik's woozy funk workouts. Also includes an exclusive cover version of the Jimi Hendrix 'Castles Made Of Sand'. Originally released in 2004 - it was never released on vinyl at the time. ADA LP
Aquarius Soulquencies Soulquencies is a perfect harmony of deconstructed soundsystem music, beautifully rebuilt with ambient textures, hints of grime, steppers while all the time melodious, musical and underpinned with bass weight. It perfectly transcends from clean and heavenly harmonies to bass weight and grit, icy to warm in a masterful way. This is the frst full length album on Scrub a Dub and we couldn’t be prouder of this piece of music, which is equally at home on the soundsystem or the home Hi Fi. Aquarius – Soulquencies is the latest project from Chikuma Tsuboi who has fallen under various monikers over the years. A classically trained musician hailing from Tokyo, Chikuma moved to the party city of Glasgow in the early 2000’s. There he was fully immersed and became instrumental in the music scene hosting some of the cities earliest dubstep nights bringing artists like Silkie and Goth Trad. Hehelped take small basement sessions to the larger clubs supporting the likes of Mala at the Art School.He played some of the earliest Outlook festival parties and was a tour engineer for Mungo’s Hi Fi beforereturning to Tokyo to complete his Soulquencies project which has literally been years in the making.

Nils Frahm Late Night Tales The latest Late Night Tales mix comes from Nils Frahm A hypnotic voyage through modern and classical composition, experimental electronics, jazz, dub techno, soundtracks and soul; Frahm's Late Night Tales haunts and beguiles. It’s not mixing, so much as gently layering, like a particularly fluffy goose- down duvet folding in on itself, the folds part of the attraction, the layers part of the overall picture being painted. Many of the tracks have been edited, effected and re-made. Late Night Tales CD | LP
