Taken from the forthcoming third album This Time from multi-instrumentalist/DJ/remixer & producer Lack Of Afro (Adam Gibbons), this new touching and super catchy single is a beautiful collaboration with UK singer/songwriter Wayne Gidden, which invokes the feel of classic soul artists such as Al Green & Smokey Robinson. An accomplished songwriter, Waynes'own previous singles, Whatever I Choose I Lose & I've Changed My Ways have both enjoyed heavy rotation on BBC Radio 2. Together, these two highly creative young musicians have come up with an unforgettable song for summer 2011… an instant hit of neo-classic, old school Soul just like those guys at Dunham/Daptone Records do!!

Press Release :
As a multi instrumentalist, artist, producer, DJ and in demand remixer, Lack Of Afro (Adam Gibbons) has achieved a startling amount in the few years since his first Freestyle releases. Playing live and DJ-ing across the world, producing and remixing everyone from Tom Jones, The Pharcyde, The New Mastersounds through to Kraak & Smaak.

In 2011, as well as collaborating on an album project with Eddie Roberts of The New Mastersounds, and having also produced and played on the Jazz FM 'Album of The Week' 'Colours', by Freestyle label mate 'Frootful' Adam somehow found time to create what is, without doubt his strongest album yet 'This Time'.

As an introduction to this eclectic and progressive collection, Freestyle Records is proud to present the simply stunning single 'A Time For' which features Wayne Giddens' smoky vocals on this mellow, sublime soulful outing. An accomplished songwriter , Waynes' own previous singles,'Whatever I Choose I Lose' & 'I've Changed My Ways' have both enjoyed heavy rotation on BBC Radio 2.

This collaboration between these 2 multi talented musicians has resulted in this memorable and touching composition, and to contrast that, the B side 'Numero Seenko' is a club friendly, hard hitting funk tinged number that is totally exclusive to this single!
