“Oh! We seem to have started a record label; well it doesn’t actually sell physical records but it releases music in a futuristic method we don’t quite understand. We couldn’t think of a name for it so just took the title of one of our old tracks ‘For Lovers, Not Fighters’ and shortened it to ‘For Lovers’. We think it works quite nicely: A: It’s self referential B: It’s a wonderful sentiment and C: It represents us and our target audience perfectly.
To celebrate the new label we thought we would give you a high quality download of Ultimo, for free. Simply go to www.for-lovers.co.uk and put your email address in the box (feel free to share with friends).
The Evil Nine studio’s been knocking out a huge amount of music recently; we’re incredibly excited about it and thought it was about time we manned-up, took matters into our own hands and started our own label to release it. ‘Ultimo’ and ‘Real Love’ are a tiny glimpse of the music we hold close to our hearts and now we have our own label we intend to show you the rest. We don’t have a vision for the label like most people would but what we do know is it’s gonna release music that girls like, that’s fun to write and fun to dance to in nightclubs, fields and horrible little grimey after-parties with your dirty little friends.
Both ‘Ultimo’ and ‘Real Love’ are full of ’90s house, Detroit techno, Italo, UK garage, Disco and Chicago house cliches but they’re good fun (Big Fun in fact) and that’s what going out is supposed to be about right? The release also includes a remix of ‘Ultimo’ by Dem Slackers, there’s only one of him and he’s very young, noisy and good.
Lots of love, Pat & Tom.”
Footnote, I can’t argue with the last paragraph, the sounds they describe are obvious; like the Evils say, “they’re good fun”! The Dem Slackers remix of Ultimo is dirty too!
