One Way: Remixes & Rarities - Sampler

A 5 track funk ep (21m 57s) — released April 2nd 2012 on Freestyle Records
In a remarkably short amount of time, Adam Gibbons (Lack Of Afro) has amassed an extensive and varied body of work. From his own recordings, featuring his multi instrumental skills, to producing, DJ-ing and of course remixing tracks by a huge range of different artists. This 5 track, 12 inch vinyl single/digital download features a cross section of tracks from the forthcoming 2 disc, 27 track album One Way: Remixes & Rarities including brand new unreleased tracks like Daddy Brings His A Game. This exclusive new track very nearly made it onto Lack Of Afro's 2011 album This Time album. All built on a filthy bass line from Damon Minchella, and helped out with some guitar, and Hammond from the boy Flevans. There are also top notch remixes by Lack Of Afro such as Soopasoul - Brand Nu (LOA Remix) which Adam often cites this track as probably his favourite ever LOA remixes as the strings hold a special place is in heart, and someone recently told him that the kick drum sound was the best they've ever heard. As rock solid as a diamond anvil, it seems to do the job anyway! The Hot 8 Brass Band - It's Real (LOA Remix) Having only the stereo master to work with on this one, meant writing a whole new track whilst keeping elements of the original to create this mix. Not an easy task, but it turned into one of the most rewarding Lack Of Afro remixes ever. Featuring heavy funk all the way. courtesy of Mike Bandoni (Funkshone/The 6 Music Fantasy Funk Band) on drums, and Nick 'Frootful' Radford on guitar.
