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 27 track, 2 disc collection One Way - Remixes & Rarities brings together the cream of Adams reworkings, some remixes of his own tracks by like minded artists, and excitingly some previously unreleased material that sees the light of day for the very first time on this killer collection of funk fuelled, dance floor fodder. With so much material to choose from, putting together this compilation was almost an embarrassment of riches, whilst the highlights are many, for Adam himself the particular stand out moments are as follows: Ray Camacho & The Teardrops - Si Si Puede (LOA Remix) Legendary trumpeter/bandleader Ray Camacho contacted Adam himself saying how much he loved this remix when he heard it! Adam aimed to make it as heavy as possible whilst keeping the original groove which was killer, and arranging it with the dancefloor in mind. Mission accomplished!

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.

Lack of Afro - Daddy Brings His A Game This exclusive new track very nearly made it onto Lack Of Afro's 2011's This Time album, so it was very nice to be able to include it here. All built on a filthy bass line from Damon Minchella, and helped out with some guitar, and Hammond from the boy Flevans. Its quite dirty really!

The New Mastersounds - Idle Time (LOA Remix) A favourite in the US where The New Mastersounds are now huge on the funk/jam band scene. Built around a great groove from the NMS boys, with an awesome vocal by Leigh Kenny, who was signed to Sony at the time.

Soopasoul - Brand Nu (LOA Remix) Adam often cites this track as probably his favourite ever LOA remix 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! One Way - Remixes & Rarities also includes remixed material by Flow Dynamics, Mr Confuse, Eddie Roberts, The Fantastics! The Diplomats of Solid Soul and Kraak & Smaak, and is a comprehensive collection of sweetly soulful and fiercely funky finds. Dig in and root down!

"If anyone is any doubt that this man is one of the UK's finest talents then give this a listen. First class!"
Craig Charles, BBC 6 Music
"The man without the wild hairdo on the remix tip once again - all good!"
Andy Smith, Jam Up Twist
"Whoever loves funk and afro...MUST fall in love with this exceptional selection!! Respect to Adam Gibbons!"
Black Mighty Wax, Gru Radio Turin
"This is sooo diGGable!"
misterG, greenarrowradio
"Loving it! Please keep them comimg - I now have enough Freestyle records tunes to start my own Freestyle records party!"
The Asbo Disco
"An album of “Remixes & Rarities” is usually an excuse to package up a bunch of day-past-their-sell-date leftovers – this one is just the opposite, totally vital and fresh. Comparisons to the work of DJ Shadow, Quantic and even Fatboy Slim are apt and well deserved. This is a good opportunity to introduce yourself to one funky white boy."
Bill Lupoletti, Global A Go-Go
"Cool, funky, greasy grooves with an old school attitude, yet a fresh new vibe."
J. Scott Fugate, Soulandjazz.com
"Solid collection of remixes and outtakes. For an avid fan some nice unreleased tracks but mostly a collection of previously released funky beats n breaks. Very nice flow and almost feels like a regular album, which is hard to achieve in a remix collection"
Sjoerd, Aurgasm.us
"Si Si Puede! And I thought you couldn't improve the original...I was wrong! What a bangin' track. Ray Camacho and the boys should be pleased."
Christopher Lawyer, 88 1 KDHX FM
"Not just for completists, this is an essential collection from one of the most exciting artists/ remixers / producers of our time. Wicked, wicked stuff throughout and even includes a few tracks that passed me by - bonus!!!"
Ginger Tony, Solar Radio
