Lack Of Afro - My Groove - Your Move



Lack Of Afro My Groove Your Move
Lack Of Afro - My Groove - Your Move
(CD/LP) Freestyle Records FSRCD057, 2009-10-19

From starting to play the piano at the age of 7, through to picking up the alto sax, then being introduced to a drum kit, as well as plucking a few chords on the guitar, it's pretty safe to say that Adam Gibbons, aka Lack Of Afro, lives and breathes music. Taking it's cues from the heavy funk and soul of the 70s & combined with modern production ethics, the debut long player Press On delivered big style, with Adam playing virtually all the instruments himself. Hailed by iDJ magazine as "one of the greatest albums of the modern funk era", right from the start you hear an understanding of what works both on the dancefloor and at home. With My Groove, Your Move, the follow-up LP released on Freestyle this Autumn, Lack Of Afro looks set for world domination. Proper vocal tracks combine with a sound that stretches the funk to new limits, whilst all the time retaining the signature Lack Of Afro elements: raw heavy drums, superb arrangements and an honest organic love of the good groove.

Press Release :
From starting to play the piano at the age of 7, through to picking up the alto sax, then being introduced to a drum kit, as well as plucking a few chords on the guitar, it's pretty safe to say that Adam Gibbons, aka Lack Of Afro, lives and breathes music.

Having posted a few tracks onto a friend's website in 2006, word soon spread to the Freestyle Records offices, where he was instantly snapped up and released the huge selling "Wait A Minute". One of the labels fastest selling 12"s, it has gone onto sell massive numbers worldwide and licensed to many compilations. The follow up "Roderigo" also flew off the shelves and is still in huge demand to this day.

Taking it's cues from the heavy funk and soul of the 70s & combined with modern production ethics, the debut long player "Press On" delivered big style, with Adam playing virtually all the instruments himself. Hailed by iDJ magazine as "one of the greatest albums of the modern funk era", right from the start you hear an understanding of what works both on the dancefloor and at home. Highlights include the does-exactly-what-it-says-on-the-tin "Pure Filth", the sublime genius of "Touch My Soul", featuring the voice of the late, great Steve Marriott, and the inspired cover of Arctic Monkey's "When The Sun Goes Down" - still a firm favourite with DJs.

The Lack of Afro sound is one in demand with labels all over the world requesting remixes. To date Adam has sprinkled his magic on more than 30 releases including tracks from Tom Jones, Kraak & Smaak, DJ Regal (The Wiseguys), The New Mastersounds, The Hot 8 Brass Band, Flevans, Diesler and Nicole Willis. More recently Adam has been asked to produce tracks for Damon Minchella & Steve White (Ocean Colour Scene & Paul Weller), as well as for DJ Andy Smith (Portishead). High praise indeed…

With "My Groove, Your Move", the follow-up LP released on Freestyle this Autumn, Lack Of Afro looks set for world domination. Proper vocal tracks combine with a sound that stretches the funk to new limits, whilst all the time retaining the signature Lack Of Afro elements: raw heavy drums, superb arrangements and an honest organic love of the good groove.

Onwards and upwards..!
