Electro-Blues Vol.2 is a double digipack CD and download album featuring one side of vintage and another of vintage-influenced sound. Taking a fresh look at what constitutes the blues, both musically and in terms of attitude, this album is not one for the purist. Side-stepping the cliches (and taking the inevitable flak), it aims to breathe new life into a genre that once defined cool.

Side one is hot off the dance floor at our underground test-bed club nights in London and Brighton where vintage classics have been cut with hip-hop, dub step, glitch and break beat. Combining the energy and feel of the original music with the clean percussive production of the lap-top generation adds a welcome sonic frisson. Side two further compliments this by re-contextualising the idiom as a form of gritty late night jukebox entertainment and offering a reminder that the roots of this music are as much about Saturday night escapism as they are about extended guitar solos on a 12 bar progression.

Electro Blues Vol.1 was released in early 2013 and divided critical opinion and blues fans alike. It received support from the likes of Craig Charles on BBC 6Music - "I'm gonna be playing this album to death!" - and Blues & Soul Mag who gave it their coveted "most unusual blues album of the year" award. On top of hosting the afore-mentioned club nights in London and Brighton, electro-blues was invited onto the festival circuit, programming electro-blues themed stages at Glastonbury's Shangri-La, Secret Garden Party, Bestival, Love Supreme and more.

Freshly Squeezed is the "world's leading" vintage remix label putting a "modern spin on old records" (Mixmag). Having pioneered a rediscovery of classic swing through the electro-swing scene and their phenomenally successful, silver-disc'd, White Mink series and events - they have also co-founded a global chain of club nights and continue to promote the most bands in this genre working with acts from Caravan Palace to Caro Emerald. Freshly Squeezed is also now a globally-syndicated radio show.
