Fat City Recordings is set to release the much-anticipated album In The Red, by the Mancunian wunderkind Trus’Me featuring collaborations with Dam-Funk, Amp Fiddler, and Paul Randolph. His debut album Working Nights is regularly held up as “one of the finest deep house and disco albums to come out of the U.K in years”, but this was just the beginning of the Trus’me sound. Since then he has become increasingly adept and inventive at taking on the sound system roots of reggae, soul, and disco, blending them with house and techno, to create a hypnotically radical sound.
Dam-Funk, Stones Throw recording artist and LA’s rising star of the nu-boogie scene collaborates on a low slung interpretation of the WasNotWas disco epic “Wheel Me Out”. Also on board is the jazzy Detroit innovator Amp Fiddler who features on two tracks including a bass & rhodes heavy cover of Bill Withers’ bittersweet classic “Can We Pretend”. Paul Randolph, Jazzanova‘s current front-man, provides vocals for a houseʼd up version of West Phillips‘ boogie favorite “Sucker for a Pretty Face” and Mahogani Musicʼs longtime collaborator Pirahnahead lends his vocal skills to the title track “In the Red”.
