The Colours That Rise - Mixtape 1 [Blue Vinyl]LABEL: Rhythm Section International
The Colours That Rise return for a quick lap around Earth with this special offering , "Mixtape 1" - comprising of one brand new studio production and two new compositions recorded live from the mothership in 2020 AD.
The new record may be short but contains 3 very different moods guaranteed to take you away. Their Earth-based ally - Yussef Dayes, returns to the drumkit on "Special Request" for a slice of extra terrestrial, year 3000 funk.
“Axel G” see's the team speed things up for the imminent return of clubbing to Planet Earth. The pandemic didn't reach outer space, and the martian calendar has afforded The Colours That Rise ample time to test out and refine their club dynamics: think Afrika Bambaata meets Drexciya on Mars.
The EP is closed out with “Polo 1.2” - which sees a welcome return of Simeon Jones to vocal duties - pining for a return to his roots - "no matter which way we go". 21st Century Intergalactic home sick blues.
We hope this offering bridges the gap to the next TCTR longplayer, scheduled upon their next trip back home…
