East London’s Fine Print have announced their self-titled debut EP on B3SCI Records (Jungle, Aquilo to be released on August 28th. Bonded over a love of J Dilla and Shuggie Otis, the duo began creating music with the desire to blend the underground electronic music they grew up with and the old school pop song format. In late 2014, they shared two demos “About You” and “Can’t Lie” with much anticipation.
Both demos were met with an enthusiastic response including Zane Lowe’s Next Hype and NPR’s Heavy Rotation List features for ‘Can’t Lie’ and support from Annie Mac for ‘About You’ — eventually grabbing the attention of producer Dan Carey (Tame Impala, Hot Chip), who stepped up to mix the EP.
Fine Print have also shared a brand new version of the warm and colorful track ‘About You’. It was the first piece of music the duo ever finished. As they recall, “We never thought it would end up with us sitting in a studio with Dan Carey putting the finishing touches too it. We are really proud of the EP as a whole. But ‘About You’ is where it all began. Working with Dan was, and still is a moment we won’t forget.”
