  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    Facehugger and Deviant - Addiction
    Citizen Griot - More Love
    DJ Squid - Eudora
    Mr Wilson - Newfunk3

    The first EP from Nottingham’s like-minded music collective, Plates.

    Originally established as a record shop and now a record cutting studio and music community, this EP showcases sounds close to its core and original supporters.
    A1 is a track salvaged from a box of long-lost cassette tapes dating back to the mid-90s, bursting with raw and uplifting grooves, a soundtrack to moody city nights in Nottingham. Facehugger a long-time friend and supporter of Plates, alongside musical partner, Mark Warden aka Deviant [RIP] brings a tearing live analogue jam mashed together on a Roland 202, 808, 909 and JD800.

    A2 offers a completely different take on the typical ‘jungle’ style. Citizen Griot, an already prolific local beatmaker, better known for his hip-hop grooves and collaborations with local rappers, brings moody and enchanting jazz club vibes over subtle but constantly moving breakbeats.

    B1 is the first ever ‘finished’ track from Plates founder, DJ Squid who has spent the last 10 years focusing on DJing and wasting precious time. This tune dedicates his love for early 90s jungle, and hardcore with the roots of soul, rare groove, weird library music and the simplicity of hand-picked samples, an MPC 2000XL and a dust-covered Mackie mixing desk.

    B2 brings you back down to earth in a smoky spaced-out back room courtesy of long-time crate digger and local hero Mr Wilson. Head-nodding beats cushioned by a soothing bassline and hypnotic chords that surround you and carry you away to another dimension that is neither new or funky.

    This record is dedicated in memory of Rita, Philpots, Pete Woosh, Adam XTC and Harry McCormick.
