Hot Border Special release their digital album

"Strong album with influences from all around the globe, transforming a great psych sound into modern anthems." - Renegades Of Jazz (Agogo Records)


"Hot Border Special serves up a spicy plate of red hot chilly peppers with no flea collars required!! Salsa Picante" - Shawn Lee (Ubiquity/Ping Pong Orchestra)


"These guys are scorching! Both live and recorded HBS deliver tropical treats like no other act around. Proper deepness!" Dom Servini (Wah Wah 45s)


"These guys know what they're doing and they're doing it good!" Virgil Howe (Killer Meters/Little Barrie)


"Joyful, deep afro funk and high life vibes from a band clearly enjoying every second of making this music" - Mr. Bird (BBE Records)


"Really enjoying this album. A clever and effective fusion of authentic rhythms and percussion with some quite seriously beautiful  psychedelic guitar shapes. Mulartoo Deetoo (although a shocking pun) is everything i loved about Thievery Corporation at their best, and Shockheaded Sweetheart sounds like the best summer you could have distilled into 4 minutes of refreshing herbal tonic." - Ed Meme (Breakin' Bread/The Impellers)


"The borders aren't just hot, they melted all the genres around them into this incredible album! Loving Monty's Jaw & Hot Border Express." - Diesler (Buried Treasure/Tru Thoughts)


"Super heavy funk weirdness from the boys - you need this!" - Malcolm Catto (The Heliocentrics/Strut Records)


"Psycho-Funk Bang!" - Jasper The Vinyl Junkie (Kane FM)

The Impellers "My Certainty" album

“My Certainty” is the third album by The Impellers. With their previous releases “Robot Legs /Freestyle) and “This Is Not A Drill” /Légère/Mocambo) the band from Brighton have established themselves as a tight and authentic raw funk unit. With “My Certainty” the band - featuring vocalist Clair Witcher and composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist Glenn Fallows - explore fresh territory. “We wanted this album to be different to other material we’ve produced, but still keeping the big and heavy sound which people have liked about us.  There’s a couple of reasons why we hope this album will surprise people,” Clair Witcher explains.

With “My Certainty” The Impellers have re-invented their sound.  “We were kind of recognisable but never truly bedded in and this is a significant change for album three. The current line-up has been together for over two years and we were so excited when rehearsing for the recording, it finally feels like it has all fallen into place,” Glenn Fallows recalls from the “My Certainty” sessions. “We've used different musical styles which match the stories and sentiments in each of the songs.  There's a couple of soulful ballads, some acoustic folky soul, a bit of R&B-inspired stuff.  Having said that, there's a load of influences from individual band members too, which seem to bleed through into the overall sound.” Clair Witcher adds: “For me as a vocalist, it was a great challenge to try and mirror the sentiments of the song and musicianship with my vocals.   We’re very pleased with how the album came together and we hope people agree that it’s by far our strongest work yet.”
