Paul Hillery Presents Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours Vol. 1

    For volume one in the series, Paul has compiled nineteen tracks that represent the journey he’s been on with the Folk Funk and Trippy Troubadours sound to date. There’s music here that has never seen the light of day, demo versions that never made the cut, new exclusive material and beloved classics from the FFTT vaults. The compilation is a sonic landscape of canyon rock, hot tub soul, Frisco folk, Balearic breeze and trippy troubadourial treasures, all lovingly handpicked for the series.

    To whet people's appetites for this alluring funky, psychedelic collection, do listen to a first single in form of 'Sweet Sweet Stay A While' by American singer songwriter Jeb Loy Nichols above. Dubbed ‘The high priest of country cool’ by Rolling Stone Magazine, Nichols was raised on bluegrass and country in Missouri, lived in New York in the late 70s during the birth of hip hop and rap and shared a squat in the early '80s with The Slits' Ari Up, Adrian Sherwood and Neneh Cherry in post punk London. All meaning that his complete disregard for genre purity have been one of Nichols biggest influences, which is there in great abundance on the soulful 'Sweet Sweet Stay A While'.

    More about dj and curator Paul Hillery
    Paul has carried his record boxes to many a venue and played alongside The Polyphonic Spree, Arthur Lee and Love, Bonnie Dobson, Spiritualized, 4 Hero, Happy Mondays, Simian, The Bees, Julian Cope, Courtney Pine and many, many more. He has also graced the turntables at Spiritland, Refuge, Festival No.6, Lunar Festival, Edinburgh Festival and Psychemagik’s Magik Forest to name a few and has supplied guest mixes for radio stations in South America, the USA, Europe and all over the UK.

    Over to Paul to talk more about the compilation here:
    “So, what is this ‘Folk Funk & Trippy Troubadours’ thing anyway? Well, it’s tricky to put a finger on. Folk-funk had been around for a while, so I added ‘and Trippy Troubadours’ to give me a little wiggle room from the genre police. To me, the folk- funk groove sounds like it has one leg shorter than the other; let’s call it a funky limp. ‘Feel the Spirit’ by Heaven & Earth, ‘Taking So Long’ by Kathy Smith, ‘Mountain Song’ by Penny Nichols, and ‘Wooden Ships’ by Christine Harwood are all great places to start.”

    Folk Funk and Trippy Troubadours is series of releases that both Paul and all at RE:WARM hope you will come to treasure and hold dear: a heartfelt compilation released with the full support of all featured artists.

    Home: 4hero & A Mountain Of One Remixes

      RE:WARM 012 is a double AA side 12” with remixes of two of the most talked-about tracks from the compilation, Fug – From Little Seeds We Grow & Bobby Lee & Mia Doi Todd – Walking With Trees. None other than 4hero & A Mountain of One were on remix duties for these two wonderful tracks.

      For the A-Side 4hero take the wonderfully laidback style of the original track by Fug – From Little Seeds We Grow and turn in a full-on tearjerker. The strings and orchestration on this remix are reminiscent of some of our favourite 4hero moments from over the years. The Drums shuffle along nicely with Jess Williams voice perfectly complimenting this take on the track. This one is set for summer glory by any standard.

      Flip this over to the AA side for the complete analogue journey that is A Mountain of Ones spaced out dubs of Bobby Lee & Mia Doi Todd - Walking with Trees. Mo & Zeben take this track by its scruff and give it a full-on tropical overhaul using crazy old fashioned dub techniques, stringing it out into a low end slow motion house dub ready for sun-drenched moments with sand between your toes and the smell of sun lotion on the breeze.
