STR4TA – Aspects

Gilles Peterson has partnered with Jean-Paul “Bluey” Maunick to reinvigorate the loose, protean energy of the early-80s Brit-funk scene on forthcoming album ‘Aspects’. Long-time friends and collaborators, STR4TA sees them mine new musical possibilities out of that shared formative era.

Alongside announcing the full album project comes the release of the second single ‘Rhythm In Your Mind.’ STR4TA showcase another masterclass in wrapping a track tightly around the groove, showing off the taut musicianship of Francis Hylton, on bass, and Matt Cooper, on keys and drums.

‘Rhythm In Your Mind’ is the second single from the newly announced STR4TA album entitled ‘Aspects’ (officially announced January 11th 2021) released on Brownswood Recordings in 12” LP, CD & DD formats on March 26th 2021.

Pre-order the album now on bandcamp.
