With the sweetest of sounds coming from the speakers of the Ticket Arena office it would be mighty selfish of us to keep them to ourselves, so we thought we’d let you in on what our staff use to soundtrack a hard day’s work. Now a weekly feature with the intent of bringing your attention to wonderful new sounds every Tuesday, our Album Of The Week looks at releases from the best in the game, whether fresh new acts about to hit the big time or established artists reminding the world of their continued talent. Simply put, it’s just the best in music that we think you should hear.
Let’s do some quick maths - six members plus ten years of music making, a further addition of over 29 collaborators across seventeen tracks and the result is the third album from genre-blenders The Mouse Outfit. The Manchester live band and hip hop production collective have lent many hands from some of the rain city’s best acts on offer, with four tracks featuring the soulful sounds of trap-hop rapper and vocalist IAMDDB, as well as Ellis Meade & Dubbul O, Kinkai, Berry Blacc and some more familiar names with past collaborators Fox, Sparkz, Dr Syntax and more also contributing. Production of this record also features the handy work of external talents as LEVELZ synth expert Metrodome showcases his skills, alongside Deese and Pitch 92, with band founders Chini and Defty completing an all star polished production team. The Mouse Outfit continue to push their fusion agenda of smooth jazz and hip hop style beats with their latest album, offering a completely unique take on each genre before layering them carefully to create a truly unbeatable sound.
The Mouse Outfit are claiming UK tour dates to celebrate the release of this album, taking to their hometown of Manchester on Friday 18th May with special guests The Herbaliser and also performing in London’s Brixton Jamm on Thursday 24th May. The Mouse Outfit will also take on Leeds’ venue Beavorworks for HighRise’s Summer Weekender takeover on Friday 1st June.
