Between the Lines
Previously known as Universal Funk, the Black Lillies debut Freestyle release is a distinctive and highly original work. Fusing electronica, soul, house & jazz with an ethereal, eclectic other worldly feel and featuring contributions from Thulla Wamberg, Hannah Vasanth & Jo Harrop (aka known as Stereofixx).
Back in the winter of 2008, Tonny Svensson and Jens Minke started work on fresh material for a new album for Freestyle Records, and now in 2010 this Copenhagen collective present their new material imbibed with a fresh and highly original approach.
As a precursor to the long player, this storming new 12 inch features 2 tracks from the album, as well two sublime remixes, the Bennson reworking of Between The Lines which takes the original away from its latin jazz stepper and into an 80’s style soul weekender direction, and an amazing Soul Tornados remix of Cargo.
Initial reactions to the new Black Lillies material has been without exception very positive as their eclectic, imaginative approach to music making is striking chords in all the right places and the best is yet to come!
