LINKWOOD

*REPRESS OF THIS CLASSIC LINKWOOD ALBUM - NOW ON HIS OWN, NIGHT THEATRE IMPRINT!!*

After gaining high praise for his previous productions on both Firecracker Recordings and Prime Numbers (tracks such as "Miles Away", "RIP", "Piece Of Mind" and "Lost Experiment"), Linkwood's Nick Moore now delivers his debut full length outing, "System". The album clearly shows the breadth of Linkwood's influences with a spectrum of styles confidently blended including 80s boogie, Detroit techno, house and deep soul. From start to finish the album is brimming with the drama of integral, subterranean dance music. The album has been well engineered and produced, giving a distinctly powerful and affecting finish to all the tracks. Collaborating with Linkwood are Fudge Fingas, who features on keys on several tracks and the singer, comedian, entertainer Reggie Watts, who provides the vocal for "Tears". A mightily impressive debut.

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Fuckin' devo'd when I missed this first time round (10 years ago! - ed). Now back with BEAUTIFULLY screen-printed sleeves, plus a gentle touch-up from the artist, "System" never sounded and looked so good! Another classic from the burgeoning, boutique UK house scene of the noughties, every home needs a copy of this masterpiece!

FORMAT INFORMATION

2xLtd LP Info: Fresh with a new two colour screen printed sleeve and a couple of track changes, the album (in his own words) 'is how it should have looked and sounded the first time around'; occupying an important transitional space between the highly collected early Firecracker 10"s and the crafted Linkwood sound of today.

• Nummer & Ghosts Of The Sky Remixes
• Strictly limited vinyl
• Silkscreened artwork by House Of Traps & Al White
• Custom, unique Obi-strip artwork

For the first in a series of reinterpretations of material from Linkwood's superb "Expressions" album (No. 10 in our 2015 Chart, fact finders), Firecracker Recordings has turned to Chicago deep house veterans Ghosts of the Sky (AKA Perpetual Rhythms’ Chicagodeep and Taelue), and fast-rising machine abusers Nummer. The latter dive into an aquatic techno tip, turning the becalmed and melancholic "Love Lost" into a techno-tempo stroll through vintage Carl Craig chords, sweaty machine percussion, and yearning melodies. There's a warmer and heavier, if surprisingly stripped back, feel to Ghosts of the Sky's version of "Object", with spluttering electronics and sumptuous chords stretching out over a rich synth bassline and hissing, cymbal-heavy groove. Piccadilly customers old and new should know how much we've championed this label, right from the start, and it's nice to see them closing 2015 with all the care and attention as they started off with. These are two phenomenal reworkings, not simply remixes for the sake of sticking another name on a branded record. These are not a collaboration with some designer jeans company in order to get plays on Boiler Room or NTS. These are timeless sonic treasures, as historically important as the Firecracker label itself in the annals of Scottish folklore.
