Limited double vinyl with both cd's sealed inside the sleeve...and what a pretty sleeve it is too. Looks wicked on the wall!
A selection of current tunes, plus lots of upfront exclusive new music, new remixes and a couple of classic cuts!
One of the UK’s most established independents, Tru Thoughts is home to a roster of emerging talents and successful established acts alike. This collection takes the listener on a sonic tour of the Brighton based imprint in 2011, ranging from cutting edge, bassy dancefloor heat through esoteric jazz to deep, entrancing electronica and acoustic folk stylings, touching on blues, soul, dub, Cumbia and much in between.
CD1 is an uplifting yet more laid back listen, with lush instrumentals and finely crafted songs, and disc 2 picks up the pace and heads for the dancefloor.
With a host of new signings on the label this year, this compilation brings the first music from new acts including the LA based, half New Zealander/half Japanese musical prodigy Mark de Clive-Lowe, who recently unveiled his upcoming ‘Renegades’ album on Gilles Peterson’s BBC R1 show; and Anchorsong, a Japanese beatmaker and multi-instrumentalist, much championed by Huw Stephens (BBC R1). More new music from Hint, and Kinny (who features on De La Soul’s upcoming single, which will bring her to wider attention).
The immense, bassy Debruit remix of Brazilian/British funk band Saravah Soul also gets a highly anticipated release; while Maddslinky delivers a killer new rework of the majestic Hidden Orchestra which has been huge in his DJ sets.
Two exclusive songs signed specifically for this comp, having pleased the crowds in Robert Luis’ DJ sets and Unfold radio show, come from new London based duo Lossy; with catchy hooks and classy production, Lossy has been compared to Lamb, Little Dragon, Jazzanova, Bjork and Joy Orbison.
In-demand cuts making a debut CD appearance on ‘Shapes 11:01’ include a Cumbia version of Dr Dre from the Quantic/Tru Thoughts/Serato 12”, “Hip Hop En Cumbia”, the fastest selling Tru Thoughts single ever (2000 copies in a few days); and Tenor Fly vocalising Smerins Anti-Social Club’s reggae style “Dr Who” theme, previously a Record Store Day 7” exclusive.
Classic Tru Thoughts selections from the archives see Aloe Blacc, back when he did still need a dollar, collaborating with Lanu (who also has two cuts on here from his acclaimed current ‘Her 12 Faces’ album, featuring Platinum-selling Australian star Megan Washington); and Belleruche’s massively popular “Northern Girls” also features, having had over half a million YouTube hits as well as recently soundtracking a Europe wide Mercedes Benz TV advert.
