|An inventive showcase of what's possible when armed with just a sampler, a few studio toys and a fertile imagination, Paul White and the Purple Brain is the intriguing sophomore album from South London producer Paul White. A collaboration of sorts, the entire record is based around and inspired by the work of little-known Swedish psych-rock guru ST Mikael. Heavy on Eastern influences and otherworldly concerns, Mikael's music ranges from searing electric guitar-led dirges to dreamlike ballads to ghostly atmospheric experiments and has been issued in tiny quantities since the 1990s on the Subliminal Sounds label. Paul White And The Purple Brain is a remarkably diverse album that defies easy categorization. Which suits him and his ''home'' label One-Handed Music (in collaboration with whom Now-Again releases this album) just fine. Praised as someone who ''embodies all that is good about a new generation of producers'' by Dazed & Confused magazine, Paul White has won over fans of left-leaning sounds and interesting Hip Hop, including Diplo, Mary Anne Hobbs, Benji B and Gilles Peterson.|
First 1000 sets will include a bonus 12'' from Paul White featuring Guilty Simpson that will not be available for purchase anywhere else.
