After establishing himself with a string of impressive offerings these last few years, London-based producer Two Inch Punch has now announced his plans for a new collaborative collection, arriving in the coming months.
The new project 'A Month Of Sundays' will see him release a batch of double A-side cuts over the next few months, culminating in his new release 'A Month Of Sundays: Volume 1' which is set for release on the 3rd September via Transgressive Records. Proceeds from 'A Month Of Sundays: Volume 1' will be going to the independent charities Young Minds and Black Minds Matter, and is being previewed by the a brand new collaborative single from Jessie Ware and James Vincent McMorrow, ‘Lost In LA’, plus an introduction to the truly exciting new South African group The Joy with ‘Nginothando Lwakhe’.
Speaking about the new project, he said, "A Month Of Sundays started as soon as lockdown began. Every producer I know brought their studio setup home and tried to work out how to keep busy. All artists touring had suddenly stopped so creating music was the only thing we had. The idea came from Hamish Harris who is my friend and manager at September. He was suggesting using the unique time to collaborate on Instagram - sending ideas to other producers and artists with the hashtag #PassItOnProject. Quickly ideas, beats & song nucleus’s were being formed at different levels & stages in peoples bedrooms.
It started out with completely random records - from ballad ideas, to drill instrumentals. Some formed quickly, some fell away. Some had 4 or 5 producers, some 1 or 2. The best thing about it was there were no rules, no campaign. Just the most free and expressive we could be in a time we felt most trapped. Pass it On (A Month Of Sundays) built momentum and snowballed. Having so many labels and artists trying to get involved was great to see.
‘Lost In LA’ & ‘Nginothando Lwakhe’ are so important to me, and encapsulate the time and process of the making of this record but also couldn’t be more different. ‘Nginothando Lwakhe’ is a pure acapella song from the township in Durban SA, while ‘Lost in LA’ is a record, reflecting about chasing a dream in LA, while being written, recorded & produced in our bedrooms in London & Dublin. Both tracks reflect the time, having been made purely as a result of the pandemic, and I couldn’t be prouder of them."
