Redpine & Solo
Time 4 Change

Redpine & Solo (aka: John Stuckey & Sam Moss) return after a brief hiatus, although they've been far from absent from the wider drum & bass scene.

However, they now join forces once more for their collaborative effort Redpine & Solo, which sees them pulling together their immense skillsets for a brand-new EP on Studio Rockers. A place both artists have frequently called home. more



Producers at the heart of the broken beat revival, EVM128 and James Rudie met through the CDR project, and soon after started to mess about collaborating with Gonzi. After coining the concept of INPUT, they found a home via Tony Thorpe at Studio Rockers and the seed was sewn.

The concept is simple, make a beat, pass it on, and let someone else add to it. Its about letting go of self and letting the music go somewhere it wouldn't have gone otherwise. It was a labour of love until each track felt right. Talented musicians, producers, singers and rappers came on board to fulfill the brief, and the end product is a modern day broken masterpiece. It's about collaboration, whether in the mixing and arrangement, performance, keys, percussion, synth, bass, - everything was a joint effort.

THE LAST POETS
UNDERSTAND WHAT DUB IS

Last year saw The Last Poets celebrate their 50-year anniversary with the righteous, politically-charged poetic record, "Understand What Black Is". Now to continue the party, Brighton production-maestro Prince Fatty has reworked the album with a fresh twist and blend of smooth, dub-delights. The revolution marches on - this is "Understand What Dub Is".
