We first worked with Marcellus way back in 2003 when, as a promoter, he brought us to Japan for an event he was organising. A truly mega-talented chap, it really is fantastic to have him as part of Orchestra of Samples. He sings on the track Sundown (That’s a Fact) for which he also wrote the lyrics.
March 2013 and we headed back to the French capital for another series of recording sessions at Canal 93, the venue in the Paris suburbs of Bobigny who are supporting Orchestra of Samples as part of their artist-in-residence programme.
As well as playing at the launch of her 2012 UK tour, joining Mixmaster Morris and Plaid, we also took the opportunity to hook up and record old friend Coppé, the delightfully sweet and eccentric Japanese electronic music producer/singer-songwriter, while she was in the UK.
