Stubb featuring Huw Costin and Rachel Foster – Love Not Sex 12″ Vinyl featuring ‘Mori Ra’ & ‘Leca remixes
Love Not Sex is the second Stubb 12′ from Paper Recordings’ Ben Davis.
The original is a melancholic slice of sunshine that draws inspiration from MOR and blue-eyed soul with a hefty dose of balearica. Acoustic guitars, Rhodes, live drums and strings plus Crazy P’s Tim Davis on bass provide the perfect cinematic backdrop for the plaintive vocals of Huw Costin (Torn Sail) and Rachel Foster.
Japanese edit hero Mori Ra delivers his first ever remix and its a doozy. Keeping the bones of the original track, he takes it in to dark psychedelic waters with the help of former_airline’s tripped out guitar. A spoken vocal tips it in to full balearic wonkiness that will have the likes of DJ Harvey and Bjørn Torske getting hot under their disco beards.
Bergen’s Leca employs his trademark stripped back crisp production for a warm, dreamy remix . Steel guitar, clicks, whirrs and a Nordic playfulness make for a cosmic journey in to the Northern Lights.
The 12’s will be pressed on a limited run of only 300, 180g black vinyl with ‘Kraftcard’ sleeves lovingly screen printed in West Yorkshire by The Egg Factory with artwork & illustration by artist Rachel Johns in a project that celebrates community and collectivism.
