We are so proud to return with the third volume in our ground-breaking WHITE MINK : BLACK COTTON (Electro Swing vs Speakeasy Jazz) series of double albums. It may have taken us a while, but we hope it will have been worth the wait; Vol 3 could well be our best yet!
The first CD launched what was at the time, a new genre in the UK and went on to become an album-charting silver disc, attracting phenomenal critical acclaim and a devoted cult-following. "Electro Swings first landmark moment" said dance-music bible Mixmag prophetically. "Sublimely decadent" said Clash; "Perfect" said The Guardian.
Our launch party in late 2009 inspired a world-wide series of club nights with London's Electro Swing club continuing to this day and our own White Mink nights hosting numerous large-scale stages annually with artists of the calibre of Caravan Palace and Parov Stelar joining us across the UK from Glastonbury to Bestival, Latitude to Larmer Tree, Edinburgh to Brighton. Just have a look at these: http://www.flickr.com/photos/whitemink/
WHITE MINK vol 3 picks up where we left off and includes another of label boss NICK HOLLYWOOD's impeccably put-together selections... this is quite simply 100% quality. The gold standard.
