dan le sac
dan le sac releases his debut solo album Space Between The Words on Sunday Best on July 9th 2012. Written, produced and with vocals from dan himself, the album features collaborations with Emmy The Great, Merz, Sarah Williams White, B Dolan, Joshua Idehen and Pete Hefferan.
“With this album” dan ventures, “working with so many different people, writing songs, it brought the producer in me back to the fore, in fact, it made me imagine never doing a gig again.”
Fans of his long-standing partnership with Scroobius Pip needn’t worry, he doesn’t mean the last part – in fact they have gigs forthcoming – he’s just reveling in his creative reinvigoration. Taking a step sideways from the percussive atmospherics that were the backdrop to Pip’s words on Top 40 albums ‘Angles’ (2008) and ‘The Logic of Chance’ (2010), dan embraces everything from electro-pop to psychedelia, all accompanied by an impressive array of vocal talent.
Dan le Sac’s reputation for vibrant good times at festivals and club nights is unarguable, but he’s also proved with ‘Space Between The Words’ that he’s a lot more than simply the bloke behind the bloke with the big beard. He’s a musical force to be reckoned with and in ‘Space Between The Words’, an album dan le Sac has created a smart, zingy debut shot that will appeal to fans of indie, dance, hip hop, electronica and much else besides. It’s one to file alongside Metronomy, Hot Chip and Field Music as a sharply individual snapshot of modern pop’s endless possibilities.
