Fudge Fingas - Now About How - out on Prime Numbers



Fudge Fingas Now About How
Fudge Fingas - Now About How
(2xLP/CD/Digital) Prime Numbers PNLP02 /PNCD04, 2011-03-25

Here's the anticipated debut album from Gavin Sutherland aka Fudge Fingas. The Fudge Fingas discography, dating back almost a decade, is teasingly small with only a sprinkling of 10"s and 12"s to his name. Since 2004 the Edinburgh-based artist has been a mainstay of both Prime Numbers (Linkwood, Trus'me) and Firecracker Recordings, two UK labels that share a penchant for classically rooted electronic music. A talented multi-instrumentalist who purveys a style of deep house that is hard to pin down but very much his own, Fudge Fingas tracks are invariably emotive, impeccably produced affairs, demonstrating a keen knowledge of electronic music. Now About How is an album that fuses diverse styles, tipping it's cap to a world of sounds absorbed over the course of a lifetime. It is the sound of Fudge's childhood spent learning from his record loving family about the many wonders of 20th century recorded music, filtered through the classic house and techno template which was the soundtrack to his formative years. It's the sound of how we got to now, and where we might go from here.

Press Release :
Here's the anticipated debut album from Gavin Sutherland aka Fudge Fingas. The Fudge Fingas discography, dating back almost a decade, is teasingly small with only a sprinkling of 10"s and 12"s to his name. Since 2004 the Edinburgh-based artist has been a mainstay of both Prime Numbers and Firecracker Recordings, two UK labels that share a penchant for classically rooted electronic music.

A side from the "About Time" EP released last summer (including the track "Me & U" which was included in FACT magazines top 60 tracks of 2010) this album will be his first solo release since 2005.

A talented multi-instrumentalist who purveys a style of deep house that is hard to pin down but very much his own, Fudge Fingas tracks are invariably emotive, impeccably produced affairs, demonstrating a keen knowledge of electronic music. The fact his music has been included on mixes by artists as varied as Amé and Joy Orbison should hint at the broad range of his musical abilities.

Through his productions and songwriting he has developed a remarkably strong reputation for heavily romantic, introspective house / not house paeans and once again vocals and lyrics play a large part on this album as Fudge exercises his unique voice to give a very personal feel. The music, meanwhile, though inspired by the dancefloor, is meant as much for the mind as for the body.

"Now About How" is an album that fuses diverse styles, tipping it's cap to a world of sounds absorbed over the course of a lifetime. It is the sound of Fudge's childhood spent learning from his record loving family about the many wonders of 20th century recorded music, filtered through the classic house and techno template which was the soundtrack to his formative years. It's the sound of how we got to now, and where we might go from here.

Fudge Fingas is a man very much immersed in his music. As well as producing he manages Edinburgh's best dance music record shop 'Underground Solu'shn' whilst also lending his musicianship to tracks by other artists on Prime Numbers such as Linkwood & Trus'me.

"From vintage chi-town house to glo-fi with a pensive mid tempo bump combined with melancholy soaked vocals" - Juno
"If you follow modern deep house you really should be familiar with the work of Fudge Fingas and his cohorts Linkwood. They're making some of the most real, deepest and most effective house music coming out of the UK right now" - Boomkat
"Addictive, robust and sensuous" - Fact Magazine

Biography :
Fudge Fingas has been making music - give or take - for all of his life. He has also been playing other peoples' in public for at least half of that time, selling their records for some kind of a living all the while.

His most lauded works thus far have been released by such well regarded record labels as Firecracker Recordings and Prime Numbers. These highly covetable releases have been picked up and played by music lovers all over the globe.

Always serving the music first and not in a hurry to chase the limelight, he has only allowed small portions of his own sounds to be heard over the years - from left of centre jazzy meanderings, to mind bending deep house, through rough and ready techno, back to psychedelically soulful late night jams.

It seems, though, that the time is now right for his eclectic sound, easy going attitude and esoteric philosophies to make the leap from his mind to yours. So, expect to hear a lot more from this being in the future…
