Augmented 7th (Vinyl Edition)
Having received staunch radio support from BBC 6 Music for his recent EP, with airplay from Gilles Peterson, Gideon Coe, Don Letts and Tom Robinson, Ash Walker announces the release of his highly anticipated debut album, 'Augmented 7th'.
Combining an eclectic mix of genres, the engrossing album ranges from abstract trip-hop and King Tubby-influenced dub-reggae to downtempo electronica, all entrenched in a jazz tone - as indicated by its title, which refers to a chord popular in the genre.
This Very Limited Edition Double Pack Vinyl features some the Albums best tracks that are very well suited for the format, as well as special guests Synkro & Gerwin on remix duties.
Synkro's remix of Blue Veins is a 160BPM piece of magic!
Very fitting with a lot of Synkro's current material and is a masterpiece of a remix.
Then there is a Deep Heads favourite, in form of French Born producer Gerwin, that hits hard with a 140BPM Sub bassline roller remix for Round the Twist.
The tracks that feature from the album are Blue Veins Feat Zeb Samuels, Bamboo Circus Feat Segilola, Round The twist Feat Nikolaj Torp-Larsen and Solo track from Ash Cote De Boeuf.
Mastered by Beau at Ten Eight Seven and is sonically brilliant!
As a DJ, Ash has long performed in support of acts such as The Specials, Lee Scratch Perry and David Rodigan,and nowhis productions are finally getting the recognition they deserve.
With a raw talent that stems from a wide range of influences, showcased in an eclectic DJ mix which recently premiered on okayplayer, 'Augmented 7th' firmly establishes Ash as a producer on the rise.
