During the making of Almighty Sion’s debut release we received a zip of unreleased beats from Bolts, one half of the duo.
For a while these just sat in our hard drive, heard mainly through DJ sets. One track was included as one of two bonus beats on the Almighty Sion release. Then in late 2013 Bolts decided to put all these tracks together for a potential release. Considering our work together and interest in the music we offered to put them out for him.
‘Collecting Dust’ is a time capsule of Bolts’ work over the past few years. The sounds on the EP are soulful and upbeat. Drawing from classic soul and world music Bolts flips samples into funky numbers perfect for the headphones or clubs. This is funky instrumental hip hop.
The release also includes Bolts’ secret track from the Almighty Sion release, previously only available on tape.
Support from Alexander Nut, Will LV, Om Unit, Fulgeance, Chris P Cuts, Jay Scarlett, NTS, Potholes In My Blog.
You can buy ‘Collecting Dust’ directly from Bandcamp or from all good digital shops: iTunes, Boomkat, Juno etc… It is also available on all streaming platforms. This is a digital only release.
