Monks Road Social - Humanism - Monks Road Studios, April 2020
This album came out of the blue! The tracks are from recorded sessions in a residential studio in Andalusia, creating music that really flows from collaboration of known artists and new ones on the block...such as Dr Robert (Blow Monkeys), Matt Deighton (Oasis), Damon Minchella (Richard Ashcroft), Steve White (Paul Weller), Mick Talbot (Style Council and Dexys), Crispin Taylor (Galliano)!!! And secial guests include people like Peter Capaldi (Dr Who) and Dick Taylor (Rolling Stones) plus new artists, Samantha Whates, Nev Cottee and many others....
What results is a smooth mix of soul, blues, jazz and dub. Beautifully produced, it is a chilled 19 track "tardis" mix which I thought felt like a dark velvet glove you could slip into for a really good quality experience.
All the music is expertly played with matching vocals throughout; a platform on which new artists can glide.
