PRESS RELEASE Jan 2007
‘Fix Your Shadow’ is the debut album from funk-fuelled breakbeat artist a9ent0ran9e: a tour-de-force of nu-skool beats, taking in influences from electro, cinematic soundscapes, dub and acid house.
a9ent0ran9e has been picking up fans and industry attention for his DJ sets, production work and live percussion, playing alongside artists from Funkatech, Twisted, Sinister, and Liquid Records,
‘Fix Your Shadow’ has already been featured on the ‘Sneaker and the Dryer show’ on NSB Radio as well as Dj mLe’s Bi-weekly show on Breaks FM
‘Fix Your Shadow’ kicks off with the storming breaks-funk epic ‘Amber’ – featuring the angelic vocals of Alex Lea, echoing the euphoria of Kirsty Hawkshaw’s work with Opus 3 and is currently enjoying club and radio support across Europe and the US.
‘Moonwalking’ then heads into spacey electro territory with overtones of John Carpenter scores, whilst debut single ‘Muddy Funkster’ continues the filmic theme with echoes of the ‘Sin City’ soundtrack and a walking bassline line reminiscent of Duane Eddy / ‘Peter Gunn’.
This track is also enjoying club and radio support in Europe and the US.
While keeping one foot firmly on the dancefloor ‘Fix Your Shadow’ weaves its way through a variety of styles taking in Leftfield-esque electro-dub on ‘Da Funk’, drum & bass influenced breaks (‘On The Run’), chilled electronica with ‘Heaven Knows’, four to the floor tech-funk – ‘Cyclemotions’ and the driving, acidic bass-heavy hooks of title track ‘Fix Your Shadow.’
a9ent0ran9e’s debut album on Phat Pilgrim is out now in digital download format from all good download stores.
