QUINCY JONES / VARIOUS ARTISTS 'Quincy Jones The 75th Birthday Celebration: Live In Montreux' [Release Date 06/07/2009]
When an artist of the stature of Quincy Jones celebrates his 75th birthday you can be sure it's going to be quite a party. The show took place on July 14th 2008 at the legendary Montreux Jazz Festival, an event with which Quincy Jones has a long and rich history, and the cream of musical talent turned up to serenade 'Q' on this very special occasion. The main concert lasted over two and a half hours and the musicians then spilled out into the bars and cafes of Montreux with the music still going strong as the sun was coming up the next morning! Incredible line-up of artists including: Patti Austin, Petula Clark, Billy Cobham, Herbie Hancock, Mick Hucknall, Al Jarreau, Chaka Khan, Angelique Kidjo, Beverley Knight, James Moody, Nana Mouskouri, Naturally 7, Paolo Nutini, Freda Payne, Lee Ritenour, Curtis Stigers and many more. Performing songs and music associated with Quincy Jones throughout his long career.
MARMADUKE DUKE 'Silhouttes' [Release Date 06/07/2009]
Marmaduke Duke, the self-created surreal musical world of enigmatic Scottish duo The Atmosphere and The Dragon, two frontmen better known as Simon Neil of Biffy Clyro and JP Reid of Sucioperro, will release their next single 'Silhouettes' remixed by Jacknife Lee [Bloc Party, Weezer, Editors] on 6th July, 2009. The single will be released on limited 7" and follows on from the release of 'Duke Pandemonium' in May, and singles 'Kid Gloves' and the massive radio hit 'Rubber Lover', which spent four weeks in the top 20, and still remains in the top 40 a full six weeks after release. 'Silhouettes' is a track which truly demonstrates Marmaduke Duke's inherent pop nous and their capacity to write songs with dance floor irresistibility. Jacknife Lee's take is high-adrenaline, blitzed dance-punk mayhem, with throbbing, pulsating dirty electro riffs fitting seamlessly with The Dragon's melodic overlaying vocals and urgent refrains.
AMIINA 'Kurr' [Release Date 13/07/2009]
"A stately drift through neo-classical chamber-pop, all choral harmonies, odd time signatures, harps, harps and more harps, destined to cause quiet riots" – NME "it almost feels as if there's something quietly revolutionary about this gently overwhelming record. Either way, a revelation" – The Guardian "A beautiful album that will wrap itself around its audience warmly and softly, cuddling them up and sending them off to lands only their minds know" – Drowned in Sound. * DMM reissue of Amiina's 'Kurr', featuring the last ever recording of the legendary songwriter and producer Lee Hazlewood. * Amiina have been working with Sigur Ros since 1999, and have been their string section on all their subsequent tours. * 'Kurr' was originally released in June 2007.
