May 17th sees a special event taking place in Liverpool, the launch of Rennie Pilgrems new album ‘Skin’. Pilgrem breaks the mould by making an album you can buy with your mobile for less than the price of a drink...
‘Skin’ - Rennie Pilgrem’s third artist album is going to be sold via clubs via an SMS code that will enable gig goers to download the album for a mere £3. The price will then be added to their phone bill, no need for a creditcard!
12 tracks of mainly dance floor heaven lean heavily towards the live sound he has been perfecting with his Band ‘The TCR Allstars’. After only 2 years and only a handful of gigs they have joined the ranks of such luminaries as The Chemical Brothers, The Bays, Pendulum as one of the ‘20 best live electronic acts to see’ in iDJ magazine.
Says the man himself;
‘There are four things I want from a track whether I am djing it or making it. Great beats, fat bass, hooks and the funk’.
Contributing vocals are from Ruth from NZ band Minuit, Rapper Mc Manic, the mysterious Bella Saer and Larry ‘Mr Sopranos’ Love from Alabama 3.
Since his last Album Pilgremage, Rennie has djed around the World 3 times, written several pieces of music for video games and some ads. He’s produced his own weekly radio Show on Galaxy and co-run the Breaksday Tent at The Glade Festival and its spin-off little brother STIR.
This album launch party takes place at The Bumper in Liverpool featuring Rennie Pilgrem doing a special laptop & keyboards set with support on the night coming from Johnny 1 Move, The Mighty Mojo and Badboy.
