Channel The Spirits is a cosmic odyssey. With psychedelic intensity, the band evokes the ghosts of bold experimentalists like Sun Ra, Funkadelic and the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. Here is the universe in a microcosm; the life-force distilled down to its raw essence: sex and dancing. Sub-bass, slamming analogue synths, unhinged sax breaks. The rhythm of life.

Our saviours Danalogue The Conqueror, Betamax Killer (both Soccer96) and King Shabaka (Sons Of Kemet, Melt Yourself Down) come bearing their debut album Channel The Spirits. A prophetic document. A celebration. The beginning of the end. The Comet Is Coming.
