THE UNDERBELLY in Japan through P-VinePublished on Giovedì, 01 Aprile 2010
"Seven Feet Under" by new RK band THE UNDERBELLY is landing in Japan! The critically acclaimed debut album will be distributed by the prestigious P-Vine Records from April 21st. "Seven Feet Under" is out now in the rest of the world on CD / LP / Digital Download and contains 13 tracks of raw funk madness. From the vocal cuts featuring Roxie Ray, to the fast-paced instrumentals, this album delivers an energetic and dancefloor-friendly punch of funk. The Japanese edition will include a variation on the cover and a Japanese translation of the lyrics.
In the meantime the album launch party will be taking place at The Eden Project in St.Austell, UK, on April 2nd, with live performance by The Underbelly and Roxie Ray alongside DJs Pete Isaac (Jelly Jazz) and DJ Griff (Rambunctious Social Club). For complete event details please visit the Jelly Jazz site here. For those of you unable to attend the launch party, the band and Miss Ray will also be doing a live session at The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show on BBC 6 on April 3rd, which can be heard worldwide from the program's website here. Also don't forget to download non-album track "Transit Fuzz" for FREE, available here only until next Monday, March 29th.
With the support of DJs such as Craig Charles (Funk & Soul Show on BBC6 Music), who also wrote the liner notes to their album and defined The Underbelly "the find of the year" earlier in 2010, Nik Weston (Mukatsuku / Guynamukat), Eddie Piller (Acid Jazz / BBC 4), Diesler (Tru Thoughts / Freestyle), Andy Smith, Pete Isaac (Jelly Jazz / Phonic FM), and Adrian Gibson (Freestyle), we here at Record Kicks are quite positive this is the beginning of a rewarding musical career for The Underbelly, and "Seven Feet Under" will make you believe it too!
