alker

Yet more confirmation that the waves being made by Manchester’s MUK Records are having a bigger impact and wider reach; as four of their incredibly diverse signings were played on BBC Introducing Manchester by BBC 6 Music’s Elizabeth Alker.

Berlin BerlinMUK’s purveyors of euphoric, stadium-sized pop were also in the studio – talking extensively before playing a fabulously glossy live cover version of Furniture’s cult classic Brilliant Mind, which Elizabeth described as sounding “absolutely wonderful – spectacular!”

She was no less impressed by the other MUK artists on the playlist: identifying Red Sky Noise‘s eclectic and powerful sound as “dance-y, jazzy, soulful… an absolute joy… ones to keep an eye on!” – and favourably compared singer Mica’s vocals to Emili Sandé.

Meanwhile, MDNGHT‘s ability to deftly recreate the feel of a sultry summer night’s party in their music was spotted – “perfect for a Saturday night,” whilst Bird To Beast‘s growing musical renown was just as clear: “lovely and pastoral – they know how to do harmonies!”

  • BERLIN BERLIN’s Brilliant Mind cover is the B-side to their fabulous new single, Be Here – Impact Date 17th November.
  • MDNGHT will be performing at this year’s Manchester Pride.
  • Red Sky Noise‘s video for their huge, soulful Only You has soared to over 20,000 views on Youtube.
  • Bird To Beast are touring extensively all summer and have just released the poignant video to Catacombs.

Sculpting innovative, bass-driven sounds, dizzy with rhythms and hooks, Manchester collective Red Sky Noise merge raw soul with a mixture of live and programmed beats and instrumentation.

 

Armed with the powerful lead vocals of Mica Millar, Only You garnered instant BBC Radio 1Xtra support at the very end of 2013, quickly being made the BBC Introducing Single of the Week.

Red Sky Noise make the kind of multi-faceted dance music that sounds unmistakably modern and undeniably massive.

Fiercely dancefloor-driven and assimilating contemporary bass music with 90’s dance and classic soul: Red Sky Noise have always threatened to grab wider attention – and so it has proven!

National radio praise for Only You:

“People really liking this! Lots of love coming in!” – DJ Target, BBC Radio 1Xtra
“Red Sky Noise slotting right in there with the likes of Rudimental” – Trevor Nelson, BBC Radio 1Xtra

ASKME -singles-button-smallIMPACT DATE: 23rd June 2014
LABEL: MUK Records

Red Sky Noise’s sky-scraping – and fiercely dancefloor-driven – assimilation of contemporary bass music, 90’s dance and classic soul always threatened to grab wider attention – and so it has proven!

The innovative Manchester four-piece are about to bring their genre-fusing sound to a voracious audience on national BBC radio, having been selected as 1Xtra’s BBC Introducing Single Of The Week.

 

Their bass-driven sound, mixing live and programmed instrumentation, is the kind of multi-faceted dance music that sounds unmistakably modern and undeniably massive – and it should find a perfect home on the UK’s premier urban radio station.

Red Sky Noise have been added to the 1Xtra playlist for the week beginning Monday 18th November, and Only You will be played across 1Xtra’s daytime shows:

Monday – Twin B (7am – 10am)
Tuesday – Sarah Jane Crawford (1pm – 4pm)
Wednesday – MistaJam (7pm – 10pm)
Thursday – Trevor Nelson (10am – 1pm)
Saturday – Yasmin Evans (7am – 10am)
Saturday – DJ Target (4pm – 7pm)
Sunday – Adele Roberts (1am – 4pm)

This is something of a repeated coup for Manchester’s MUK Records, whose artist MDNGHT was also recently selected for the BBC Introducing playlist slot on both 1Xtra and Radio 1.

Only You is available on iTunes to pre-order now.
