Description

“The legendary Tru Thoughts label”MISTAJAM

“The brilliant Tru Thoughts label, one of our favourites” – LAUREN LAVERNE

“As a DJ you can’t ignore it when a package comes from Tru Thoughts… brilliant stuff” - GILLES PETERSON

“Tru Thoughts is one of the labels that I’ve found myself listening to more and more” -HUEY MORGAN

“Eclectic and vibrant… the excellent Tru Thoughts” – HUW STEPHENS

“Moving with the times and listeners’ tastes, Tru Thoughts always have their finger on the pulse” DUMMY MAG

‘Shapes: In Space’ is the latest in Tru Thoughts’ series of essential label compilations put together by A&R and co-owner (and renowned DJ) Robert Luis. Encompassing the best of the Brighton based label’s eclectic and international current roster,as well as some classic cuts and three exclusive tracks, this great collection of music is out on double CD, double LP (with full 35 track download code) and digital.

“I always enjoy putting together these compilations and I personally love how this series shows the eclecticism of the Tru Thoughts artist roster”, says Luis; “I am a firm believer in the often used phrase "There are only two types of music: good and bad", and the tracks on the Shapes series always cover a wide variety of genres and styles, all linked by a constant of true creativity and soul.”

As well as the sonic variety, this collection also highlights the diverse origins of the music on the label. From the UK, there are the soulful, forward-looking and beat-laden offerings of rising stars Werkha, Bryony Jarman-Pinto and Harleighblu, while from the USA there is Moonchild (who have been praised by the likes of Jazzy Jeff, Laura Mvula and Tyler, The Creator), Lost Midas, The Seshen and Space Captain. Repping the authentic New Orleans sound, Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band have continued to win more and more fans across the world since they first started working with Tru Thoughts a decade ago.

A newer signing to the label is London based Austrian artist Manu Delago, who is a key player in Björk's band alongside his solo work, and who delivered a deep, experimental album last year to much acclaim. Various strands of Reggae/Sound System culture are represented here by Ghost Writerz, Wrongtom and Rodney P (whose “Holes In The Building” single with DJ Die lit up the official BBC 1Xtra Playlist earlier this year). Anchorsong (a London based Japanese producer) comes with a track from his ‘Ceremonial’ album, on which he explores Tropical and vintage African rhythms and has gained huge acclaim including official BBC 6Music Playlisting. And Quantic comes with another new project, The Western Transient, an inspired instrumental jazz outing that shows once again what a strong creative musical force he is.

Having celebrated 15 years of independent success in 2014, Tru Thoughts is riding high with flagship artists like Quantic, Alice Russell, The Hot 8 Brass Band and Hidden Orchestra – and UK legends like Rodney P, Zed Bias and brand new signing Flowdan - being joined by a powerful new wave of talent, pushing the boundaries of diversity and quality yet further. Cutting edge electronic explorations and thundering bass and dub sit alongside spine-tingling soul and folkloric fusion through to dexterous hip hop, not to mention combinations of all the above and more.
