Allo Love, Vol. 6

A 15 track downtempo album (1h 12m 53s) — released August 19th 2016 on Wah Wah 45s

The sixth instalment of the Allo Love series is our first collective effort, coming as it does from the combined musical mind of Leeds / London based electronica outfit Paper Tiger. We could bang on about how this is our favourite Allo Love compilation so far; how it contains more exclusive tracks than any of its predecessors and how it's an almost seamless journey through melodic downtempo and dance floor delights, but we thought we'd let Greg Surmacz from the band explain for himself!

"We were honoured and delighted to be asked to curate this release - the label has such a diverse and high-quality catalogue that narrowing down our choices was a tough process. However, one of Wah Wah 45s' defining characteristics is always pushing forward, always innovating: so in that spirit, we decided to compile as much brand new music as possible for the album and make it a 'family and friends' affair.

There's an exclusive new Paper Tiger song; a debut release for our bassist Sam Vicary's amazing Hunrosa project; a debut by Chrome Glaciers (my new project with fellow Yorkshire artist Bambooman); new music from our DJ/producer Adam Radley (aka Vital) and frontman Raphael Attar, plus exclusive tracks from some of our favourite new producers. The catalogue picks are also a nod to the Wah Wah music which has influenced us - Bonobo, Dele Sosimi, Gene Dudley and a mega blast of Kanye from Scrimshire's monstrous Hackney Colliery Band edit.

Most importantly of all, we wanted the release to hang together, to feel like a coherent album that illustrates our taste as musicians and listeners. Hopefully we've achieved this and produced something which provides an insight into all of our work, but can be enjoyed on its own terms!"
