The Breadwinners / Skinshape – Horus Records

by Bob Harding on 25 November 2013

HorusRecords HRD-101 This is the first release from new label Horus Records. Hailing from Dorset and Hampshire, we are two young guys totally devoted to the music we love. As enthusiastic listeners and performers of music, we felt it our responsibility to release some of the material we have been exposed to, music that we feel deserves to be heard by a wider audience. In this first release we are duplicating the 7″ vinyl that is going to be available in conjunction with this digital release, so it is a two-track single in double A-side format. We feel that as we are introducing two new artists on one 7″ record, they both deserved an A-side! Horus Records is proud to bring to you the following artists:

SIDE A – STALLY & THE BREADWINNERS – ‘RIDDIM BOX DUB’

Strictly analogue sounds from Stockport’s Bakery Studio harking back to the 70’s heyday of Jamaican dub experiments. All recorded on ¼” reel tape utilizing various vintage effects typical of the era. The Breadwinners are the Bakery Studio house band; which may include as many as four or five musicians but is often just Al, stockpiling rhythm tracks for any visiting singers and players.
’Riddim Box Dub’ is produced, mixed and written by Al Breadwinner. All instruments are played, and music written by Al, excluding the tenor sax that is played by Stally who adds his usual deep felt improvisational touch to the track.
 The Breadwinners album ‘Dubs Unlimited‘ released at the end of 2012 is also available on King Spinna Records on LP, CD and Digital Download.

SIDE A – SKINSHAPE – ‘SOUL GROOVE’

As a young man living in London, Skinshape (a.k.a Will Dorey) is a ‘bedroom studio’ enthusiast, recording all manner of instruments and using tape machines, spring reverbs, and whatever else he can get his hands on to create tracks on Ableton. The outcome often lies somewhere in between reggae/dub and hip-hop beats. ‘Soul Groove’ meanders along a loosely reggae-orientated beat and features two guest performers. Firstly, singer and lyricist Anina crafts a melodious vocal line through the song with her beautifully dreamy voice. Secondly, on the organ we have Mr Jon Moody with some mellow chops and a bone-shattering solo taking us to the next level!! More on Skinshape is most readily available through his soundcloud page (https://soundcloud.com/skinshape), or his Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/skinshapemusic).
