Linkwood & Foat “Linkwood & Foat” (Athens Of The North)

2020-03-13T20:33:46+00:00March 5th, 2020|

Athens of the north is not just here to release great music but to support our artist development and experimentation, to this end we always try to bring good people together to work on new music. This LP fuses two massive talents, for the first time to AOTN we introduce House and Techno legend Linkwood, joining him is one of the |UKs most respected Jazz Artists Greg Foat, who will need no introduction to AOTN fans

‘Linkwood & Foat’ is the first LP to be recorded in the new ‘Athens of the North Studio’, which was designed and built specifically for our artists so that they can create without the time pressures or expenses of studio hire elsewhere. With no fixed plans, no rules or expectations, the pair relaxed in the new studio and started making music. The result is very special indeed

Linkwood had just returned from walking in the wilds of an Ibiza summer and Greg had similarly been immersed on the sun drenched south coast of the Isle of wight. This freedom and sense of space saturates the grooves of the LP juxtapositioned against a deeper late night basement club feel they both love so much, the pull between nightlife and the freedom of nature. It’s extroversion and introversion, the freedom and escapism of the two seemingly opposing environments permeates this recording.

Linkwood “System” (Night Theatre)

2019-07-12T16:13:11+00:00July 12th, 2019|

Linkwood s debut album System from way back in 2010 finally gets a timely reissue on his own imprint Night Theatre. Fresh with a new two colour screen printed sleeve and a couple of track changes, the album (in his own words) is how it should have looked and sounded the first time around , occupying an important transitional space between the highly collected early Firecracker 10-s and the crafted Linkwood sound of today.

Linkwood “Fresh Gildans” (Firecracker)

2018-12-21T05:45:43+00:00December 21st, 2018|

One of Firecrackers Founding Fathers returns once more, this time shoving two fingers up to current DJ conventions smashing out a 150 BPM electrofunk hybrid. On the flip, two deeper cuts traversing ambient wormholes and reflecting that classic Linkwood sound. Ultimately, a miscellany of unique, syncopated weirdo sounds, barely orbiting the outer regions of dance music or, depending on how you look at it, three timeless cuts designed for the dance floor, the sofa and all points in bethween.
