Description & tracklisting

This brand new compilation (an annual Sunday Best tradition) throws together some of the best tracks and remixes of 2012, coupled with some of the most exciting from the Sunday Best archives, and a previously unreleased cut from Beardyman. Encompassing everything from story-telling, enchanting English folk, southern American blues, electro-pop, deep house, dubstep and alternative indie; the compilation boasts a proud, colourful and eclectic picture of the ever-growing Sunday Best catalogue.

Among the excellent artists who feature on the album are emerging singer/songwriter and ‘One to Watch in 2013’ Valerie June, whose debut album ‘Pushin’ Against A Stone’ is due in the summer, the awe inspiring David Lynch and the ever prolific Dub Pistols who had a hugely successful festival run after picking up the DJ Magazine ‘Best Live Band’ accolade.

Echoing previous volumes, the compilation features fantastic remixes from the likes of Moby, Trentemøller, 2 Bears and rising stars Hackman, Psychemagik and Gavin Herlihy.

While 2012 was a great year for the label, this volume also nods back to many highlights of the Sunday Best catalogue featuring tracks from Lemonade, who released their stunning sophomore LP ‘Diver’ last year on True Panther after their critically acclaimed self-titled debut on Sunday Best in 2009, Beardyman, dan le sac Vs Scroobius Pip and more. Yet ‘Increase The Peace, Vol. 6’ also looks forward to two eagerly anticipated albums set for release later in the year from Tythe and Lucky Elephant, with tracks from each.

Increase The Peace, Vol. 6’ is available exclusively on iTunes from 14 January, with a full digital release on 3 February.
