Slow Dance presents Late Works: Of Noise
The eclectic compilation features musicians from black midi, 404 Guild, Goat Girl, Sorry, Powerplant & Curl Recordings. For the album, six hand-picked groups of musicians improvised songs with original instruments sculpted by artists. The groups had six hours each to record their tracks, with the whole album being recorded over the course of a week.
Uma - Bring Me The Mountain (feat. Lucy Lu)
Uma’s current collaboration with Lucy Lu began when he flew to Spain at the beginning of the pandemic: “it was the first time in years we had the time and space to write together. Learning to share a creative space has been a real lesson in loving someone, being honest and having a sense of humour.”
Newest offering ‘Bring Me The Mountain’ shows the duo combining their distinct vocals and creating a blend of delicate, yearning pop with subtle strokes of percussion, “there’s definitely an exploration of acoustic and electronic sounds,” Uma explains, “I think that is a result of the balance of Luke’s style and my own.”
Fran Lobo - Brave (Loraine James Remix)
Fresh off her debut EP ‘Brave,’ Fran Lobo has enlisted fellow experimentalist and IDM producer Loraine James for a remix of the title track. The track is the first in a series of remixes for a forthcoming remix EP out at the end of the year. Loraine James released her debut album ‘You and I’ last year to critical acclaim. The Quietus named it the best album of the year, along with RA and Pitchfork, who featured her recently praising her ‘Fearlessly queer take on the sound of South London’.

SLOW DANCE '19
Slow Dance ‘19 is the London music collective and record label’s fourth annual compilation, featuring tracks from collaborating or admired musicians and producers from the past year. It is the longest and most varied one yet, with 18 tracks by incredible new artists, who are asked to submit a track that they feel wouldn’t fit in a standard release. In previous years, the compilations have provided a platform for artists from bands such as Black Midi, Black Country, New Road, Sorry and Goat Girl to release more experimental solo projects as well as giving an opportunity to completely new, unsigned artists. Throughout the year, Slow Dance put an enormous effort into finding the most interesting and promising new acts and the compilation is an opportunity to highlight and provide a platform for this. It acts as a summary of the label’s highlights from artists and tracks of 2019 and things to watch for 2020 - from both within and outside of the label’s own roster.
