BANOFFEE PIES

For the second Re-Issue Series release we team up with London duo Euphonic for a deep dive into their back catalogue set across two releases featuring a number of artists who they collaborated with after the projects inception in 1997.

The group, consisting of lead producer Rob Henry and former Graffiti artist turned DJ Nick Trimm, fuse intricate programming and bass lines with traditional jazz/blues instrumentation and vocals to produce a diverse and varied selection of aural pleasures.

A chance encounter at the Blue Note club in Hoxton lead the pair to travel to New York to record with friends from the Brooklyn Hip Hop underground, including dr. Israel, Soothsayer, and Kirsty Rock, where both versions of "Jah Science" and "Revolution-Solution" were recorded.

These tracks were originally released on the Different Drummer label in 1998 and have long been unavailable...until now! Here's a taster of what's to come. Eyes peeled for part two.

TRACK LISTING

1. Jah Science (feat. Dr. Israel)
2. Revolution-Solution (OG BassMind Mix) [feat. Soothsayer, Dr. Israel & Kirsty Rock]

Banoffee Pies Records 17th Original Series release comes via a 4 track Solo EP from Gallegos, making a return after his debut EP "Mad As Hell" in 2018. Along with multiple appearances on compilations and other series on the label, this record is a nostalgic reflection of UK club culture. A "Sentiment Of Love" - the EP title and opening track is a tribute to a different time.

A positive selection of tracks, starting on the A1 with a Winehouse sample, immediately carves the path for what is always a collection of expert sampling from our longest standing label member. The A2 offering, "Put Me In", is a beating club anthem full of heavy distortion and all the acid lines you'd hope for in a moment at the back of a club. A feeling evoked. One Mitsy down.

The B1 "Together Flyin' High" continues this moment with an elevating vocal and ringing synths layered with Broken Beats and the heavily percussive drum patterns Gallegos' sound is so closely developed around. The last track on the release "Before Or Since", immediately teleporting you to the end of a night. Something inward, for a time and place, future or past. BPR x

Nicholas' own Ringrose label first rose to the surface back in 1998, and the highly sought-afterLow End Theory Pt. 112" amassed something of a cult following amongst eager heads over the years. Intrigued by the refined analog grooves he had left behind, we dug through his back catalogue and found him perfect for the off-kilter, soul-enriched and sample heavy sound our label and parties are all about.

After requesting tracks from Mark we ended up with a wide selection to sift through and quickly reached the conclusion that the music would be best represented as a complete body of work. While it took time to craft the perfect selection, we feel this LP best represents the diversity and skill Nicholas has at his fingertips. The fact he refrains from tethering himself to one sound accentuates the colour and personality that identifies his music.

The live, jammed out feel is equally matched by his experimental ideas, perhaps best manifested on uptempo swinger "This Jazz", but still his direct understanding of groove drives the LP forwards at all times. The energy levels ramp up to the techno pulse of "Ginger Giraf" at times, while elsewhere a sweet and serene mood calms the pace down on "Old Sole", but the finish on the music is consistently organic and hand-played, holding everything together naturally whatever the tempo.

The energy and sheer musicality that spills out of the ten tracks selected for this album is hard to resist, shedding a much-deserved light on jazzed-out house music that came dangerously close to never seeing the light of day.

TRACK LISTING

1. Little Miss Sunshine
2. Lafaro HSE
3. Cosmic Interlude
4. This Jazz
5. Incien Tlyso
6. Disco Groove
7. Ginger Giraf
