Tru Thoughts, an independent label based out of Brighton in the UK, celebrates their 15 year anniversary this year and are giving away a special album for free download over on their bandcamp site. The eclectic mix of genres and artists make this a nice little pickup for a wide audience, featuring mellow soulful cuts from Alice Russell, Titeknots, Wrongtom, and more. There are distinct futuristic R&B vibes mixed in with some UK Funky undercurrent that give this album a unique British flavor that we don’t typically get from our own US based labels. Personal favorites from the compilation are the aptly named “In The Dancehall” featuring dub outs and solid low end appeal, and Anchorsong’s “Plum Rain” with its soothing guitar licks and organ splashes paired with infectious bass tom work. Stream below and grab the download over on the bandcamp page, and if you happen to be in London on February 22nd head over to Koko Club to check out their birthday showcase.
