Press Release :
The first new studio album from Finland's Pepe Deluxé since 2003 is finally here to assault your ears with astonishing sounds and music you've never heard before. A tripped-out, psychedelic masterpiece!

Anyone who owns any of Finland's musical innovators Pepe Deluxé's music, knows that every new album is an event worth waiting for, and an experience to savour. It's been 4 long years since their last studio opus 'Beatitude,' a free-wheeling, genre-hopping sonic assault of styles. So, start up the 'Spare Time Machine' and set the controls for the heart of a bold new musical frontier! The story of Pepe Deluxe is as simple as the music is multifaceted. Kicked into existence in the mid-'90s by Finnish turntablist DJ Slow and his associate JA-Jazz (AKA Tomi Paajaanen), their early underground hip hop adventures achieved a unique individuality when third member James Spectrum joined.

With 'Spare Time Machine' they come close to achieving this nigh-on-impossible goal but that still doesn't explain where the album's bizarre title came from. "It's started as 'Spare Time Bottling Machine'," laughs James Spectrum, "but it got shortened. I had the original idea when I realized the only thing that I don't really have is spare time. I figured what we need is a machine that brews spare time for you to enjoy when you need it the most. Then, during a recent trip to New York I suddenly realized we actually do already have that elixir of spare time - good music that takes you to other times and places."

A heady cocktail indeed but music lovers of 2007 would be wise to drink deeply of Pepe Deluxe's latest recipe.

The first single to be lifted off SPARE TIME MACHINE is "The Mischeif Of Cloud 6'

"... is rammed with 60's influences, including first & foremost the classic musical "Sweet Charity", with the odd psychedelic wig out thrown in for good measure, and a toothpaste smile lead vocal, all cleverly put together over fast & funky percussive rhythms. The Rich Man's Frug at The Pompeii Club starts here. 4 **** " (Reviewed by Dean Thatcher in Update mag 9/5/07) The follow up single is sucker punch madness "Pussy Cat Rock" which will be supported by an equally massive video (check the video at: 'SPARE TIME MACHINE' is a heady cocktail indeed but music lovers of 2007 would be wise to drink deeply of Pepe Deluxe's latest recipe.Triple J have already added 'GO FOR BLUE'
