Home feat. Faye Houston by Scrimshire
This October sees the return of singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer, DJ and erstwhile Wah Wah 45s label boss, Adam Scrimshire, with the debut offering to be taken from his second album “The Hollow”.
“Home” is a good place to start for this latest opus, representing as it does a trip back in time to the roots of this young man’s music, with a more contemporary electronic edge. Stunning harmonies come courtesy of our very own Faye Houston from dub reggae favourites Resonators, and bass worrying dance floor interpretations are taken care of by U.S. heavyweight Captain Planet and those young turks from Leeds, Paper Tiger. But if time is needed for reflection, look no further than Scrimshire’s own acoustic ‘re-version’, with the man himself laying his soul bare on vocal duties.
“The Hollow” will be released by Wah Wah 45s on November 21st.

“I love it!” Danny Krivit (disco legend, USA)
“Perhaps Scrimshire’s finest hour, ‘Home’ is a heart-wrenching voyage of discovery.” Jon Freer (freersounds.com)
“Home is the perfect downtempo track. With its welcome hints of world sounds, it reminds of something you may hear on the Buddha Bar series.” Giant Step
“Home is perhaps Scrimshire’s finest tune to date. There’s an experimental edge in both the production and arrangement, however, it’s the songwriting that takes centre-stage, with Adam and Faye sharing writing credits. Defying facile classification, Home delivers a laid-back vibe with bite. It’s certainly not all fur coat and no knickers, with each spin leisurely unravelling the tune’s secrets, building its resonance.” Soulcuts
