The adrenaline-fuelled groove machine that is The Winachi Tribe release a remix of their debut single ‘Time For Love’ through A1M Records. Initially released five years ago, David Tolan (Primal Scream, Tears For Fears) has given it a thumping update ahead of the release of their debut album in early 2021. 

Lead singer, Liam Croker‘s voice is a gritty fusion of the eccentricity of George Clinton, delivered with Shaun Ryder attitude, tempered with a white northern soul funk-rock style, reminiscent of Sly Stone. ‘Time For Love’ is full of swagger and funk. Adding to their unique funkadelia sound is acclaimed percussionist Inder Goldfinger who is best known for his work with Ian Brown and Fun-Da-Mental with his neo-classical tribal rhythmic style.

A 5-year unstoppable journey has led The Winachi Tribe to the suburbs of Hollywood from the urban streets of Manchester through relentless hard work and a good slice of hustling. They’ve jet-set around the world, wowing at festivals and played with Grand Master FlashSugarhill Gang & Furious Five and The Happy Mondays. Along the way, they’ve received global radio support and clocked up hundreds of thousands of streams, picked up acclaimed U.S. songwriting awards and appeared in the L.A. Times


The band recently signed to Howie B‘s management company ‘BeeManaged’. Howie is better known as a record producer, musician and collaborator who has worked with artists including BjörkU2Tricky He said:

Working with Winachi is an absolute pleasure; their enthusiasm and commitment to their art/songs/funk/soul is infectious and inspiring.”

Darktown Jubilee – Stay

Impact date: 11th March 2013

Label: Parade Recordings 

‘Stay’ is the emotionally charged follow up to 2012’s ‘Breakdown’ and was mixed for radio by world renowned engineer Cenzo Townsend (Vaccines, Maccabees, U2, Snow PatrolEditors et al).

Taken from the forthcoming album The World, The Flesh & The Devil (Feb 25th), ‘Stay’ is Influenced as much by Springsteen and The Doors as they are by contemporary artists like The Temper Trap and The Killers, Darktown Jubilee’s core resonates with a fundamental knack for melody, timing and simplicity.

David Boardman from the band comments:

“Stay is the most emotionally direct song on the record and has always connected with audiences so it became an obvious choice when we were considering singles. It was a dream to get Cenzo to remix it for us. He has mixed some of the greatest records of the last 10 years and I think brought out the best in the track, bringing to it an increased energy and dynamic range”.

“For the video, however, we were keen to show another, more playful, humorous side to the band whilst still remaining true to the essence of the song. The initial idea was to have the lead character enter a surreal, dreamlike scenario in which a procession of weird and wonderful characters were singing the song in karaoke style.”

“Finding the venue (a karaoke bar in Manchester’s Chinatown) was key to the look of the finished film and once Emmerdale‘s Emma Atkins agreed to play the lead role, it all began to take shape. It was a cool video to make which included nods to some favourite films and formative influences!”

LIVE DATES:
Sat Feb 9th – Manchester, Night & Day
Fri Feb 15th – Newcastle, The Cluny 2
Thurs March 7th – London, Nambucca
