NameBrandSound – Home Demo ft Aleisha Lee

CoOp Presents an all-new double-album compilation entitled ‘Plug One’. It features a plethora of global talent from in & around the world of broken beat and beyond – some already well-established in the field, some very much on the come-up and some brand new artists, this compilation is an acknowledgment of a continually evolving sound from the label formed by IG Culture & Alex Phountzi a few years ago. ‘Plug One’ affirms this electric movement, with a deeply fluid current running throughout, with tracks ranging from the cosmic psych jazz of LCSM, to the classic UKG tweaks of Groove Chronicles, to a veritable who’s who of 2020 bruk talent.

Following on from the recent single ‘400 Years’ by Reginald Omas Mamode IV, which had love from Gilles Peterson (BBC 6 Music), XLR8R, Earmilk and on Spotify’s Butter & State Of Jazz playlists respectively, we give you another taste of what’s to come.

Single two comes courtesy of NameBrandSound aka CoOp Presents label founders, IG Culture and Alex Phountzi, inviting in the soulful vocals of Aleisha Lee to join them on the firing ‘Home Demo’. NameBrandSound produce more of their classic heavyweight bruk, whilst Aleisha’s vocals ensure that this one is nicely balanced between the rough and the smooth.

The single also includes a remix from upcoming talent Risa T who flips the track in a sweet UKG style & pattern, and a further collaboration with her & 50% of NameBrandSound, Alex Phountzi on the track ‘Rotations’ (both tracks appearing on this digital single only), a slightly deeper affair with an ethereal piano hook, and subtle guitar licks & synth stabs – Deep Bruk business! Risa T is a Tokyo-born, London-based producer, who nurtured her music roots through years of classical training from a young age. In recent times, she has released tracks & remixes for Da Lata, Summer Dance Forever and now CoOp Presents.
