Amidst the fervent anticipation of the release of Stac’s long awaited second album (due in the spring of 2014) our favourite soulful songstress has found the time to gather together ten of her favourite pieces of contemporary music for your delectation, in the shape of the third instalment of the “Allo Love” series.
Stac is a real music lover (not a fighter) and her selection exemplifies the breadth of her knowledge, and her perfectly pitched taste. A sonorous collection, it kicks off in grandiose style with music from The London Bulgarian Choir, no less, and remains in deep musical waters with the Matthew Herbert produced Hejira, trumpeter and friend Matthew Halsall and close contemporaries, Natural Self and Blue Daisy.
You’ll also find a quartet of cherry picked Wah Wah 45s nuggets, with music from The Gene Dudley Group, Henri-Pierre Noel, Lea Lea and Scrimshire fitting perfectly into Stac’s personal soundtrack, and the latter’s cut also featuring the lady herself on fine vocal form.
Finally, Stac also appears on a stunning downtempo delight from the mysterious William Sommers with whom she duets on the delicate “Delight”, a tune that sums this compilation up perfectly. Enjoy.
“Awesome!” DJ Asbo (Asbo Disco, UK)
“Lovely selection! Stac. Yeah. Yeah. (again)” DJ Gilla (First Word, UK)
“You’re always one step ahead of the others… No genres…only music!” Cesare Cera (Irma / Black Mighty Wax, Italy)
“A very cool release and a bit left of centre to what I would normally get into but I’m already a Gene Dudley fan and really like the Scrimshire, Blue Daisy and Hejira tracks and will def drop them in my next Radio Show. Everything I hear by Henri-Pierre Noel I really dig and play the one 45 I have of his regularly. It goes without saying that I’m a Natural Self fan and this track is killer!” DJ Mr Lob (UK)
“What a beautiful selection … above all the fantastic William Sommers! 9/10.” Markus Milz (Further in Fusion, Germany)
“Some nice tracks on there esp the Blue Daisy one!” Dave My First Moth Records (UK)
“The Valleys – still a fave !” Don Rogall (Berlin, Germany)
“Lovely and original compilation put together by a lovely and original talent. Good work Miss!” Mickey Duke (Code South, Brighton, UK)
