Trus'me - In The Red - out on Fat City Recordings



Trusme In The Red
Trus'me - In The Red
(CD/2xLP/Digital) Fat City Recordings FCCD030/FCLP017, 2009-12-07

Fat City Recordings and Prime Numbers present the much-anticipated album In The Red by Trus’me. Since the release of his debut Working Nights in 2007, Trus’me has been doing just that, both DJ'ing in the best clubs around the world and putting in plenty of late night studio sessions alongside some heavyweight talent. The result has been a rapturous dancefloor response to his eclectic dj sets, an impressive roll call of quality remixes (inc. LCD Soundsystem, Amp Fiddler & Dabrye) and not least the production of his long-awaited second album In The Red. Working Nights is regularly held up as "one of the finest deep house and disco albums to come out of the U.K in years", but this was just the beginning of the Trus'me sound. Since then he has become increasingly adept and inventive at taking on the sound system roots of reggae, soul, and disco, blending them with house and techno,to create a hypnotically radical sound.

Press Release :
Fat City Recordings and Prime Numbers present the much-anticipated album "In The Red" by Trus’me. Since the release of his debut "Working Nights" in 2007, Trus’me has been doing just that, both DJ'ing in the best clubs around the world and putting in plenty of late night studio sessions alongside some heavyweight talent. The result has been a rapturous dancefloor response to his eclectic dj sets, an impressive roll call of quality remixes (inc LCD Soundsystem, Amp Fiddler & Dabrye) and not least the production of his long-awaited second album "In The Red" "Working Nights" is regularly held up as "one of the finest deep house and disco albums to come out of the U.K in years", but this was just the beginning of the Trusme sound. Since then he has become increasingly adept and inventive at taking on the sound system roots of reggae, soul, and disco, blending them with house and techno,to create a hypnotically radical sound.

In comparison to his debut album, on "In The Red" Trus’me has collaborated with several vocalists and musicians.The album is undoubtedly more accomplished leading to an organic, unabridged feel to the production and a more song based approach. Trus’me has certainly raised the bar attracting some real key players to appear on "In The Red".Dam-Funk, Stones Throw recording artist and L.A.'s rising star of the nu-boogie scene collaborates on a low slung interpretation of the WasNotWas disco epic "Wheel Me
Out". Also on board is the jazzy Detroit innovator Amp Fiddler who features on two tracks including a bass & rhodes heavy cover of Bill Withers bittersweet classic " Can We Pretend". Paul Randolph, Jazzanovas current front-man, provides vocals for a house’d up version of West Phillips' boogie favourite "Sucker for a Pretty Face" and Mahogani Music’s longtime collaboartor Pirahnahead lends his vocal skills to the title track "In the Red".

About Fat City :
Specialising in hip hop, funk, jazz and soul, Fat City Records opened as a small record shop in Manchester's Affleck's Palace in February 1993. In the subsequent years Fat City has grown into a three-stranded music organisation. The Fat City Record shop expanded several times over the years before finally residing in Oldham Street, the cultural Northern Quarter of Manchester. In August 2009 the Fat City shop closed its outlet in Oldham St and the business moved to London where it continues to be at the forefront of online music retailing.
Fat City Recordings, the label, sprung up in 1998, with the purpose of illustrating the Fat City Sound on wax and cd. The label has released four different compilation series, the acclaimed eclectic mix 'Mystic Brew', a couple of more musically specific albums in the Special Brew series, digging in the funk 45 crates for the Fat and Funky series, and the 'Stars on 33 series that sees well known musical producers and DJs making their selections.

The final strand of Fat City's musical involvement is club promotion. Over the years, Fat City has run many club promotions and since 1998 has been in partnership with Grand Central under the banner of Counter Culture Promotions. Counter Culture promoted the club night of the same name for several years before embarking on the current project, Friends and Family, which now runs in Manchester and London, with special events and residencies.
