about

This record is the result of an undeniable desire to uncover a once lost and forgotten gem from beyond the dust. To recover the magic underneath, that has never grown nor subsided and doesn’t belong to anything but itself. A love story between two music labels that found each other in this blissful journey, Lossless and Something Happening Somewhere are here to presents their first findings.

Uzoamaka is an original track by King Britt from 2002, that still remains as fresh and uplifting as it was 14 years ago. Nuno dos Santos (SoHaSo) has been in love with the sonic narrative since it was released, but felt the urge to bring the transformative beauty to a wider audience. In an attempt to recover the original, the original master and pre-master turned out to be lost by the waves of time. Calyx mastering have remastered the music straight from vinyl, keeping the raw charm of the original but giving it a sonic facelift to fit with modern standards, also making it available in the digital format for the first time since it’s release.

The original by King Britt is an ode to the ritual of dance music in it’s purest form. With vocals panning across the stereofield that preach ‘Sing, dance, be, free to dance’, it resonates with the primordial human playfulness, joy and expression in all of us. Teasing with a melodic bassline, almost reaching twelve minutes running time, it’s a modern hymn that never fails to mesmerize and bring people’s spirit together.

Besides remastering the original, it gave the opportunity to invite other artists to retell the story. Love over Entropy stayed true to the original groove, but added his characteristic atmospheres and expanded on the melodic movement with a hang drum that takes the whole thing to deeper dancefloor meditiations.

SBTH take a more techy approach with a trippy twist, while adding some extra percussive power and groove certain to deliver maximum impact on the dancefloor. Stripping the original back to essentials, restraining it to an even more hypnotizing effort.

With the Lossless family on board, both Love over Entropy and Mathias Schober // show-b aka SB spending time on both platforms, it was a natural progression to turn this into a collaborative release. It seems only now that there are more horizons to be explored together, as human beings are imbedded to do. This might be the first chapter in that story...
