London-based producer, multi-instrumentalist and versatile musician (genres varying from hip hop, psychedilia, beats, electronica and dance) Paul White is releasing his new album Shaker Notes in a few days and I’m absolutely curious and impatiently waiting for this release.
Shaker Notes drops officially in the UK/Europe on September 29, 2014 via London-based R&S Records, it already is available since September 26 in Germany/Austria/Switzerland. The album is available as digital download (mp3/wav/flac/aiff), CD and 12″ red coloured vinyl LP (limited to 300 copies). You can buy/pre-order your copy of Shaker Notes directly in all versions from Paul White’s Bandcamp. Physical orders includes download of the LP in your desired digital format.
The album is now streaming in its entirety above (via the R&S Records Soundcloud), you definitely should listen to it as a whole. Paul White has two London shows/gigs coming up, check out the dates below. In a recent interview with Huw at Spare Hands, Paul White explained the background of Shaker Notes:
“This album isn’t like any of my previous records that have all been sample based! I wanted to write and play music again, you always want to keep changing and challenging yourself, not that I don’t still do that within beats and sampling, but I was going through alot whilst writing this album and I found the best way for me to get life out at the time was to pick up instruments again and just hit record and play and not sample!! So I feel pleased in that way like this is 100% all me and my soul! With some of my friends and family’s mixed in there on top too! ”
The official video for Where You Gonna Go?, the brilliant current single from Shaker Notes, is directed by Ruffmercy and produced by Tim Crawley – check it out below. All instruments on the song are played by Paul White, also the main vocals. Additional vocals were contributed by Jamie Woon, Sarah Williams White and Jitwam Sinha. Listen below to the fantastic house remix of Where You Gonna Go? by Andres (aka hip hop producer DJ Dez).
