This Tuesday will see us both at James Wesley studios in North Yorkshire for a photoshoot especially for the forthcoming 12 track CD only Pianoman album.

Five years and we have finally sorted it and we are hyped. The delay, of course, is finding the free time to link up and arrange but now after a long wait, it is happening.  

New Vlogs coming soon  

We are going to start doing Weekly Vlogs which will be posted on our website and across our social media. They will cover all kinds of topics such as how Pianoman started and how tunes such as Cast A Spell and Blurred came about.

There will be a few stories from back in the '90s thrown in too.

 

Best of PCP VOL 3 Vinyl Repress 

Pump This Party and Set Me Free were two of the standout tracks from the PCP (VOL 3) vinyl that was released in 1995.

Both these tracks will be getting re-released on vinyl and come with brand new 2020 Pianoman remixes as well.

Only 300 will be pressed making this very collectable for DJ's and Old Skool Piano House fans.

Whitney Tune / Cast A Spell To be repressed from 90's DAT  

The classic Pianoman / PCP anthems Whitney Tune (PCP Vol 2) and Cast A Spell (Pianoman) are getting a limited edition vinyl repress.

From an original DAT tape used for P.A.'s in the early to mid-'90s. They will be limited edition and limited to just 300. 

The repress has been made possible by several private investors and will be the first of a series of new and classic tracks released again on vinyl .

Both Cast A Spell and Whitney Tune will be remastered to bring these recordings up to date both for DJ play and optimized for how we listen to music today. 

 

 

New Classic Pianoman track in production now 

A new Pianoman track is currently taking life in Ableton and we have gone right back to the start and the formula we used in the early '90s too.

Most importantly we have used all the original sound modules and synths we were using back then to make it 100% authentic. 

Roland JV1080, Roland 909 drum machine and JD800 plus stings and classic organ sounds from Yamaha TX81Z and the legendary Casio CZ101 (Thank you, Louis Gaston)

  

 

Pianoman Compilation Albums 

Compilation CD's are still popular with DJ's as they can be played on CDJ's or ripped and added to your digital music collection.

We are shortly going to release a new series of Pianoman compilation CD's that will be professionally manufactured and complete with an audio booklet for each release. The first three in the series will contain remastered versions of classic Pianoman tracks from the PCP era and include Pianoman remixes and more.   

What makes these albums really special is that they will contain brand new Pianoman tracks that you cannot get anywhere else but on these releases.

Massive value for money at £12.99 too. Vol 1 is in production now and has four new tracks in its tracklisting so far.
