Lack of Afro

A Time For

Freestyle Records

Released: 15th August 2011 | 2 track soul single
As a multi instrumentalist, artist, producer, DJ and in demand remixer, Lack Of Afro (Adam Gibbons) has achieved a startling amount in the few years since his first Freestyle releases. Playing live and DJ-ing across the world, producing and remixing everyone from Tom Jones, The Pharcyde, The New Mastersounds through to Kraak & Smaak.

In 2011, as well as collaborating on an album project with Eddie Roberts of The New Mastersounds, and having also produced and played on the Jazz FM 'Album of The Week' 'Colours', by Freestyle label mate 'Frootful' Adam somehow found time to create what is, without doubt his strongest album yet 'This Time'.

As an introduction to this eclectic and progressive collection, Freestyle Records is proud to present the simply stunning single 'A Time For' which features Wayne Giddens' smoky vocals on this mellow, sublime soulful outing. An accomplished songwriter , Waynes' own previous singles,'Whatever I Choose I Lose' & 'I've Changed My Ways' have both enjoyed heavy rotation on BBC Radio 2.

This collaboration between these 2 multi talented musicians has resulted in this memorable and touching composition, and to contrast that – the B side 'Numero Seenko' is a club friendly, hard hitting funk tinged number that is totally exclusive to this single!
"Taken from forthcoming album 'This Time' Lack of Afro is back with an absolute soul stormer. This single could quite easily be a rare find from the late 60's, such is the feel and quality. They don't make records like this today - or maybe they do?"
BBC Three Counties, Paul Miller
Lauren Laverne, BBC 6 Music
"Sounding like an unreleased collaboration between Curtis Mayfield and Marvin Gaye circa, 1975 (yes, its that good!) the only flaw in this song is the fact that life becomes dull and ordinary again when it ends."
"This is the most soulful I have heard Lack Of Afro & he nails the sound, Beautiful track!"
RTE Pulse, Tom Lowe
"Lack Of Afro - quality gauranteed - just SUPERB!", Paul Abbott
"Love this.. best new release I've heard in quite a while! VERY soulful!", Pete Hawley
"I was really wondering how deep LAO can get. The soul song has the original vibe and Numero Seenko will rock my floors for sure as it fits perfectly to what i am playling these days.", DJ
"One would be foolish not to get your hands on a copy of this. 'A Time For' features UK singer/songwriter Wayne Gidden. This smokey, (not just retro but real) Soul side rolls along beautifully like Motown in the Summer, while the uptempo hard Funk of 'Numero Seenko' hits the groove even harder and will no doubt fill dance floors (with or without talcum powder)."
"Love the song - a fantastic piece of soulful brilliance!"
Ace Records, Dean Rudland
"My 'One To Watch'!"
Jazz FM, Gary King
"Based on this tune from Lack Of Afro, the forthcoming LP could be a bit of a stormer. We love the vibe that ‘A Time Of Loving’ brings, enhanced exquisitely by the vocal talents of Wayne Gidden"

BaseFM 107.3, CoopaBlu
