Westsound Recording Co., Polyrhythmics, and Lucky Brown are proud to present their new summer anthem, "I BELIEVE IN LOVE" available on 45RPM vinyl this summer. The single features a positive message charged vocal A side to sing (and to scream) along with, and a classic hard-hitting vocal-free version on the B side to satisfy lovers of Polyrhythmics' brand of strictly instrumental deep funk.
Ben Bloom, the leader and founder of Seattle-based funk instrumental group Polyrhythmics, and Lucky Brown have been working together since 2006, creating and licensing for vinyl release authentic underground rough, raw and deep funk for mavens around the world through German boutique label Tramp Records. To date they have produced a half a dozen singles together and two full-length LPs. Since Bloom founded his nationally touring and critically acclaimed instrumental outfit Polyrhythmics, he and Brown have craved a collaboration of even deeper consequence. They decided on an "in-house production" of a new rendition of an epic audience participation based song that Brown composed and has been slaying audiences with for some time now called "I BELIEVE IN LOVE".
The musicians conceived the single as the foundation of and promotional device for a deeper collaboration between the two forces: Polyrhythmics, supporting and effortlessly adapting to focused audience energy conduction with Lucky in the lead singer/front man role and Lucky diving headfirst into the ideal democratic consciousness of the Polyrhythmics' collective collaborative method of song craft, recording, and performance. In fact, it was Polyrhythmics bass player Jason Gray who engineered and mixed this cut (all 9 guys in his living room and kitchen! and all live and direct!) compelling them to impress the "a Brown & Gray Production" hammer stamp upon the 45 label.
In Lucky's own words:
"…recording and committing to wax this universal sentiment with the gripping execution of this groove was appropriate for this stage of our careers…and [we are] using our gift of music as an attempt to deliver a message of unity and love to a world that, at times, seems poised to spiral into darkness…"
Westsound Recording Co. will grant permission to begin spinning the anthem at the end of June 2016.
