Wonky electro-disco producer Sam Annand will release his debut album for Tirk later this year.
The London-based Scotsman hasn't been particularly prolific over the past two years, but the tracks he has unveiled have already made waves with fans of both disco, dub, and wonky instumental hip-hop. Last year's Birds Of Prey EP may have been his debut single, but showed an admirable level of production expertise with his slow wiggling grooves and off-kilter funk.
Three of the tracks from Birds Of Prey have found their way onto the full-length, which goes by the title of Green And Gold, but there will be ten brand new cuts for eager fans to get their teeth into, including three vocal contributions. The dulcet tones of Sunharbour vocalist Junior Williams sits atop the lilting "Nothing," Ilija Rudman gets on the mic for the electro-boogie of "Mind Games," and Angéle David Gillou compliments the strutting jazz piano of "Spinning Plates."
