Tom Eno: Projects & Reworks

Jack To Phono

Released: 23rd July 2012 | 14 track downtempo album

2012 has become a prolific year for British based guitarist Thomas Eno . Firstly his second album Jackknife was released in February to critical acclaim. Picking up plays on Radio 1,2 and 6 from the likes of Lamacq to Da Bank. His new project Mountain Folk with Danish producer Rene Kirkengaard is out in May. This has a more electronic feel and was recorded in the height of winter in Wales as the bells tolled for 2012. Mr Eno is no slouch, bubbling under his projects with Mr James Bright and Rene has been a host of remixes for a number of different artists. Some have been part of the Jack to Phono label others have been swaps with a number of European producers. Tom Eno Projects and works starts with fellow Hampshire muscian Polly Wood on their version of the JJ Cale classic Tijuana. Brighton based producer Black Grass gives us a hand with this one. The original of this track was chosen for a Hotel Costes compilation. As well as Black Grass, contributions from German Jazz producers Dusty of Jazz & Milk, Renegades of Jazz and Mr Confuse all appear. Along with Sunday Best producer Fear of Theydon and Monochrome from Lancashire. More remarkable than all of that is the sheer musical genre cross over of the Tom Eno remixes in the package. As well as the producers already mentioned Tom has taken on remix projects that encompass Indie to Folk to Hip Hop. He has worked with The Seal Cub Clubbing Club , award winning band and 6 music favourites from the Wirral and also BBC Introducing favourites Bird from Liverpool, remixing Indie and Folk. He has also been collaborating with Bristol based artists Scott Hendy of Boca 45 and Benjamin One. The Contaminated Waters project from Hendy was feathured in Banksy and the remix on this album recently used by the Occupy Movement which went viral in hours. Don Letts has also been a fan of Tom's work playing the Upskiboo and Diego and The Dissidents remixes on his 6 Music show. Perhaps the centre piece for the album is Tom's version of Newcastle based Tombee's track Sticky Rhythm which featured on the Berghaus commercial in 2011. However prize for the most overseas collaboration goes to Argentina based Dr Stereo with the aptly titled Hear the Difference. This is a truly remarkable collection of songs via the Tom Eno production machine with the release of 27 sound recordings in 6 months.
