Why You Wanna Be (With Me)

A 4 track ep (17m 22s) — released December 20th 2010 on Mighty Highness

# #
Ari Roze's first 7inch single on MHR, Rolling With A Planet, took us to a place where Dub, Electro, Soul & a touch of Jazz came together in an organic, spontaneous & dare we say, heretofore unimagined collision. Ari's been in the studio for a year now crafting what is to be a full length LP out in 2011 & Mighty Highness felt a special type of release was in order to celebrate its coming. The music here is undoubtedly imaginative, different, unusual, whatever you want to call it. But also in this day of the quickly come & go MP3 mentality, we think its necessary.. Time for a slow down & listen.... There's no anchor for this music, it steps to its own rhythm, style & a greater compliment we cannot think of. All of the instrumentation is composed, recorded & often played by Ari Roze & a handful of masterful musicians, all of it live, including full string & horn sections, D6 clavinet, L100 hammond & leslie, drums etc.. All recorded into vintage RCA ribbon mics & Ampex pre's direct to tape. If you hear hiss, thats just part of the dusty flavour. Strictly limited to 300 hand numbered copies, with 2 x 7inches in gatefold sleeves, the record labels were especially created for this release & were screenprinted by hand. Only the title track from this double 7inch will feature on the upcoming LP & this release is only on vinyl, not digital. So you wont find these tracks anywhere else.

Incredible release...even better than the last one (which was one of my tunes of the year last year) Full support! - Dom Servini wah wah 45s

Endless Memory is really going "deep down" old school soul/reggae. But the killer is Leftnrite for sure! It needs a boogie remix for the dancehalls:) - Haris Badic GAMM /Raw Fusion
