Press Release :
This eagerly anticipated EP provides a first ever vinyl release for six tracks from the limited edition Exclusives CD of the Tru Thoughts 10th Anniversary compilation.

A super heavyweight 12", it features some of Tru Thoughts' biggest names including Quantic and Barakas (Bonobo's dancefloor alter ego), as well as killer dancefloor cuts from up-to-the-minute producers Hint, Azaxx, Domu, and Swedish sensation Freddie Cruger aka Red Astaire making a welcome return to Tru Thoughts.

The only other physical product to feature these tracks is the strictly limited edition 10th Anniversary 3CD Compilation, which is absolutely guaranteed to sell out fast.

The Tru Thoughts 10th Anniversary year has seen a huge amount of media interest, with features and reviews in Record Collector, Music Week,, DJ Mag, iDJ, Night Times (and more) and radio specials on BBC Radio 1 (Gilles Peterson), BBC 6Music (Craig Charles), SPIN Southwest (EIRE), and many others locally and worldwide.

"Tru Thoughts, Brighton - that's what it's all about!" - Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio 1)
"Still flying the independent label flag down in sunny Brighton... Happy birthday to Rob and the Gang!" - Rob Da Bank (BBC Radio 1)
"Tru Thoughts celebrates its 10th anniversary with its ideals intact ... synapse-shorting, psychedelic electro-jazz fusion and fierce bassline/dubstep DJ cuts, alongside a steady diet of jazz, funk and soul." -
"I love the Tru Thoughts label" - Laurent Garnier
"Tru Thoughts is the type of label that inspired me to own and run a record label." - Neal Sugarman (Daptone Records)
"Tru Thoughts has gone from strength to strength in its ten years, establishing itself as one of the leading independent labels in UK right now. Here's to another ten." - Simon Green aka Bonobo (Ninja Tune)
