June 1st, 2006

Edinburgh’s SURFACE PRESSURE RECORDS have teamed up with Glasgow’s GDANSK RECORDINGS to bring you: ‘Surface Textures – Rust’. A collection of past, present and future releases from the SURFACE PRESSURE RECORDS catalogue.

‘Surface Textures – Rust’ is the first in a series of compilations from the label which draws together tracks from all the previous vinyl releases and makes them available on CD for the first time. With tracks by FOUND, S-Type and Vin Landers, the compilation also features exclusive remixes by Sonar Kollektiv’s Dimlite, German electronic producer Granufunk and the Fence Collective’s avant-garde popsters the Deaf Mutes.

Highlights include the deep motorcity funk of S-Type’s ‘Soul For Your Stereo’ (the Dimlite Revaluashun) which features the microphone skills of Detroit’s rising star Finale; FOUND’s intriguing debut single ‘Mullokian’ and the bass-heavy electro work out on the Deaf Mute’s remix of ‘Found Can Move’ (pay close attention for the seriously fast melodica solo in the outro – the Deaf Mute’s Reuben Taylor has very nimble fingers!)

As usual the sleeve artwork has been crafted with as much care and attention to detail as the music it holds. This fine sampler is an excellent introduction into the sound of SURFACE PRESSURE RECORDS – a label continuing to release consistent, high quality music from Scotland and beyond.
