Finally the debut EP from Sleepin Giant is out in all its glory. Purple has been years in the making and is easily one of the releases we’ve sweated the most over, from production to vocals, art to mastering. The end result is something we’re all incredibly proud of and which we hope you’ll enjoy just as much as we did bringing it to you.
The EP features production from SG, tipping its hat to the legacy of neo soul, with vocals from an international trio of talented singers: Romaine Smith from Bristol (frequent Typesun collaborator), Ruben Hein (signed to Blue Note) from Amsterdam and Aja Monet from Brooklyn (Talib Kweli is a fan).
Artwork for the vinyl is inspired by the legendary covers of the classic Ohio Players albums, see below. The artwork wraps around the vinyl, with black inner and full cover labels.
You can buy the vinyl directly from us on Bandcamp and receive flat-free shipping worldwide (4 Euros only).
Alternatively the release is available now from all good record shops, and digitally via iTunes, Amazon, Boomkat and more.
