Adam on yet another cool Japanese compilation


From the sublime vault of Japan's great P-Vine Records, Adam Dunning's infamous "Leblon" makes it to yet another compilation across Japan, with availability worldwide.  The title more than gives this one away – and the album's a great exploration of that growing global underground who've turned back towards the 70s, to re-embrace and re-invent the smooth contemporary sound of the decade! You might know a few names on here from the Dusty Groove racks – like Ed Motta or Jarrod Lawson – and offers up a stunning selection of tracks that may well beat some of our LA studio gems from the big labels. The vocals are wonderfully soulful – more than you might even expect – and the production is sublime – not commercial, but a cool reworking of older crossover modes with a leaner 21st Century aesthetic!

gallipoli - Australian and Turkish voices join together. Download here.

“Gallipoli”, a new Australian-Turkish collaboration from Melbourne’s “voice of summer”, Adam Dunning and Istanbul-based artist, ChanCé.  

Dunning and ChanCé (Sansin Tuzun) recorded the Gallipoli single in Istanbul to mark the 2015 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landing in 1915. It's the first time the nations have come together in music to commemorate the Gallipoli landing.  “We wanted to write a commemorative work that pays homage to our soldiers who fought at Gallipoli, but also to the coming together of our three cultures in peace for the ANZAC centenary”.
