The first 12” release from Nu:Tone's forthcoming album 'Words + Pictures' sees the man otherwise known as Dan Gresham collaborate with Ronnie Scotts regular and MOBO nominee Natalie Williams on the fantastic 'Shine In'. Dan also links up with Hospital signed younger brother Logistics on the flip. Two superb vocal-led cuts act as a delicious appetizer to the full length album which will be dropping at the end of February.
'Shine In' was debuted as a live PA with leading soul/jazz star Natalie Williams at the D&B Arena Awards 2010. As anyone who was in attendance will testify the mesmerizing vocal hook, punchy breaks and warm, rising energy of this incredible tune makes for a breathtaking experience. A gentle building intro segues into the main tune with all the technical prowess you expect from Nu:Tone, making this arguably one of the best vocal cuts on Hospital ever!
Over on the flip, Dan teams up with younger brother Matt for Bleeper - an onomatopoeic slice of liquid loveliness. A nod to their recent Nu:Logic collaborative project, the rippling rhythms and dreamy melodies of Bleeper dance around a deep bassline, until a robotic vocal disturbs the proceedings. Hypnotic, elegant and with real depth, this is one to get completely lost in a sublime offering that all true Hospital fans will relish.
