Info for Syncopated City: The Director's Cut (Remastered)
This year marks the 10th anniversary of London Elektricity’s seminal album ‘Syncopated City’. To celebrate this landmark, label boss Tony Colman has given the LP a full 2018 update, remastering all twelve tracks for a very special ‘Director's Cut’ release.
The album includes the undisputed classics such as ‘Just One Second’ and ‘All Hell Is Breaking Loose’, that can be heard in a brand new light with updated mixdowns and masters. Plus you can hear the stories and inspiration behind the compositions that you know and love with a special Spotify Commentary, where label heads Chris Goss and Tony Colman give an in depth insight into each track.
The co-founder and CEO of Hospital Records and sister label Med School, mastermind behind the multi award-winning Hospital podcast, producer and vinyl-only DJ, has been instrumental in the development of D+B as we know it today.
Responsible for some of Hospital's biggest anthems, such as 'Billion Dollar Gravy", 'Different Drum" and 'Just One Second", London Elektricity has cultivated a first class reputation as both a producer and DJ and continues to push the genre he fell in love with in the mid 1990s to this day.
With an impressive back catalogue of singles, EPs, remixes and no less than five artist studio albums and two live albums under his belt, London Elektricity is an undisputed legend in the D+B scene with legions of fans and a global following. His debut album 'Pull The Plug" was released on Hospital in 1999, with the follow up 'Billion Dollar Gravy" in 2003 and 'Power Ballads" in 2005.
Between 2003 and 2005 Tony fronted London Elektricity Live with jazz/soul legend Liane Caroll, vocalist MC Wrec, co-producer Landslide and The Jungle Drummer. Touring everywhere from Birmingham to Brazil, they released two DVDs – 'Live Gravy" (2005) and 'Live At The Scala" (2007).
Returning to the studio in 2008 London Elek created his fourth studio album 'Syncopated City" followed by album number five, 'Yikes!" in 2011, which features the vocal talents of Swedish vocalist Elsa Esmeralda and was launched at the iconic Hospitality Brixton.
In recent years London Elektricity has continued to push the boundaries of drum & bass with his talented roster of artists signed to the ever-growing label that is Hospital. With London Elek leading the way, last year the drum and bass powerhouse took home two impressive sound-clash trophies; with London Elek's mixing abilities and knock-out selection taking out all competitors in the BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra Drum & Bass Soundclash and V Festival's Rudimental vs Hospital Allstars takeover.
In 2014 Tony also worked on an exciting project, alongside S.P.Y and Diane Charlemagne, creating the soundtrack for the incredible Street Child World Cup in Rio – 'I Am Somebody". Of course London Elektricity continues to tour the globe, having already hit Australia, New Zealand and Japan in just the first half of 2015. Somehow he's also managed to squeeze in enough time in the studio to work on his highly anticipated sixth studio album, just watch this space.
This album contains no booklet.
