Nostalgia 77 launch new label Impossible Ark Records



Impossible Ark Records
The Nostalgia 77 boys continue their journey. Besides releasing two new albums at once ('Borderlands' and the stunning 'The Impossible Equation') under the well-known N77 moniker, Ben Lamdin and Riaan Vosloo set up their own label, Impossible Ark Records. Two initial albums set the standard: there's the Examples of Twelves project with 'The Way Things Were', composed by Riaan Vosloo, and the Plumstead Radical Club album 'The Coast Is Clear', by the hand of Trevor Mires. Each with its distinctive approach & sound.

The Examples of Twelves project sees the N77 Octet re-enforced by a string quartet and exploring more cinematic fields, infused with some modern dance rhythms at the same time.

The Plumstead Radical Club album, on the other hand, cuts the band back to the core. Resulting in a very tight setting of top musicians Trevor Mires (tb), Graham Fox (dr), Ross Stanley (p) and Riaan Vosloo (b). They wonderfully get away with a funky jazz-take on 'I Shot The Sherrif', and build in some rest with the beautiful 'One Way' - described by Mr. Scruff as 'the jazz track of the year'.

Vinyls will be limited to 500 each and as you can see, the artwork is sheer quality! Expected to be out by the end of the week. Check it!
