In line with the announcement of his forthcoming album ‘Raw Material’, Melbourne soul mastermind Lance Ferguson has dropped a taste of what is to come with the first single under his own name ‘Back To You’. Produced by UMPG’s ARIA Award winning One Above, the hip-hop cut samples from the “original” song 2+1 which features Kylie Auldist on vocals.
As an album, ‘Raw Material’ is a total re-think of the remix album concept, and is driven by a deep dedication to sampling, vinyl culture and collaboration. Ferguson wrote and recorded twelve new funk, jazz and disco tracks using some of the best musicians in the country (calling upon members of Hiatus Kaiyote, The Putbacks and The Bamboos). These tracks were then pressed onto individual vinyl singles, with Lance keeping the original version and then sending a copy to producers that he admired, with the idea that they would sample from it to create a new ‘remix’ track.
