Simple Things / Strange lines

Simple Things / Strange lines by U.H.O.

Centred around the ‘Little Portugal’ area of Lambeth, UHO’s compositions reflect the street sounds of his locality and the escapism of his mentality. Arrangements, orchestration and melody rule the day – with each production unfolding mystery and depth on each play.

Previous press for UHO:

“I love the music comin’ outta the UHO” – Teddy D (Basement Boys)

“Deep production and strictly jazzy vibes with that all important latin twist” – Phil Cheeseman (Essence Records)

“Too, too deep” – DJ Alex from Tokyo

“A future classic from Recreation Records (UK), English eccentricity flavours the new world sunshine of ‘Miami Flight’. ‘Strange Lines’ on the flip picks up the laidback thread while adding some subtle d&b action.” – IDJ Magazine

“Live sounds come to the fore on this strong, slice of Latin-flavoured dance. Breakbeats and acoustic guitar give a haunting sun-kissed quality to the b-side, Strange Lines.” – Music Week

“Downbeat recommended: UHO’s Miami Flight a strange, soulfully chilled trip.” – XLR8R Magazine

“UHO make beautifully different music. Two tunes with a jazz edge that defy categorisation. It’s the atmosphere that gets you.” – www.tunes.co.uk

“Technojazzmusik for spy kids!” – www.musicmarkt.de

“This is simply intelligent, tuneful electronica.” – Technics Dance Update
