Ain’t Nobody Playin’ Release Date

Ain’t Nobody Playin’ Release Date

Atheen - Ain't Nobody Playin'

Back when I first started playing music, it was my dream to have a jazz-funk-fusion album that I could be proud of. Along with a bunch of funk-loving friends, I spent hours studying the work of The Brecker Brothers, George Duke, Level 42, Stanley Clarke, Weather Report and many more.

So imagine my delight that some of my funk heroes have agreed to contribute parts to a few of the tracks! First up is a track featuring the amazing talent of Nick Van Gelder on drums, then on the next release we have a fantastic sax break from the legend himself, Mr Gary Barnacle.

I also want to feature some of those wonderful friends from back in the day. As always, Gaz Rackham (bass) is making his presence felt on these first two singles and I hope on many more.

This project had a false start a couple of years ago –  a few distractions came along, including a job with Yamaha. So now, Modal Records is officially relaunching with a new distribution deal in place and a new mix of the first single out on Friday 28th August (originally later than planned as I’m adding a remix!)

Really hope that we can meet you on the road in the not too distant future but in the meantime we’re going to chuck some more YouTube videos together just for fun x

Mythology Music - Dreaming Of The Stars

Dreaming of The Stars is now finished and available to stream and download!

The idea of this album was to create a complete, flowing work and so it was composed in one sitting using a few basic sounds. Track production came later but it was still developed in a way that it was intended to be listened to as a complete 40 minute suite.

The album combines both orchestral and synth elements and was great fun to create, especially the videos using all of the wonderful footage and images available on the NASA, ESO, ESA and HUBBLE sites.

This is meant to be relaxing so my suggestion for listening is to create yourself a home-made planetarium or get yourself a star projector! 🙂

As always, licensing options are available at www.modalpublishing.com

Enjoy!

This was always designed to be a relaxing album so I hope that you enjoy  chilling out to it!

The Edge Of The Universe

The Edge Of The Universe

On a roll now, the penultimate track done – this journey around the cosmos is almost complete! The plan for this track was to capture a feeling of peace and serenity as you look out into the darkness beyond the known Universe…
