I am incredibly honored to have had the opportunity to work with Toby Marks aka Banco De Gaia on his new album released this year – “Apollo”.
The album consists of 9 tracks with my vocals on 2 of them: “Lamentations” and “Acquiescence” which start and finish the album respectively. The project was a joy to work on. Banco De Gaia’s music crosses many genres and styles. In their own words “elements of ambient, world and dance music”. “Apollo” has been 7 years in waiting and it doesn’t disappoint. This album is a beautiful musical journey.
Apollo – as described by Toby on Banco De Gaia’s website:
“I would like to think that the heart and soul of my music has remained the same: I may not go to as many all night parties as I once did, but I still like to dance and make dance music; equally, I love building downtempo grooves and making music to chill out and breathe to.”
Apollo is available to pre-order at Bandcamp as a download or to purchase on CD. The download comes with a 7 page PDF booklet plus the front and back cover…the CD however, is in a lovingly designed Digipack with a beautifully printed, 12 page booklet.
There are remixes to follow and possibly a special edition version on vinyl and gigs are sure to follow!
The album launches officially over the weekend of 12-13 April 2013.
