    In 2020, Dance Music don, Ashley Beedle was approached to edit the unreleased track which had a UK 12” vinyl release in 2021 on the charity A's and Bees label. Having heard the track in all its glory, Ramrock Boss Lady, Jo Wallace immediately thought that a 7” edit would sound like a Blackpool Mecca classic that never existed! And so, the editing process began again and, this time, the North Street Collective came up with ‘Superfine Feeling’ 7” Edits and, in the true tradition of soul tracks, named them Pt1 & Pt2. An exuberant, uplifting, Mecca Soul unreleased monster finally receiving the talcumed dancefloor love it deserves 44 years later!

      Somewhere Between: Mutant Pop, Electronic Minimalism & Shadow Sounds of Japan 1980-1989Light In The Attic

      Light In The Attic release 'Somewhere Between: Mutant Pop, Electronic Minimalism & Shadow Sounds of Japan 1980–1988', a collection of tracks that were created “during Japan’s soaring bubble economy of the 1980s, an era in which aesthetic visions and consumerism merged. The music echoed the nation’s prosperity and with financial abundance, came the luxury to dream.”

      “Thanks to the idyllic economic climate and innovations in domestically manufactured music gear, creators on the edges were empowered to focus on satisfying their artistic visions in the open headspace of home studios.”

      “These tracks exist in a space of transition when the major label grip on the Japanese recording market began to give way to the escalation of independents

      Across its 14-tracks, 'Somewhere Between' spans ambient, pop, electronic, minimal, and so-called “shadow sounds”, with music from Mkwaju Ensemble, Naoki Asai, Noriko Miyamoto, and more.
