1. Tall Black Guy, Eric Lau, kidkanevil & Mr Thing — Thing Leaves The House (RSD 2015) (AUDIO).

    AKA NOTHING LEAVES THE HOUSE PART 2: For those who missed it the first time, this story begins here .

    And now we let First Word Records pick up the tale: A year on from the day the trio of Eric Lau, Tall Black Guy and kidkanevil visited Mr Thing's collection to sample his records (where nothing could leave the house), we gathered them at London's Love Vinyl record shop where he had brought one record from his collection for each producer. Their challenge was to make a beat from the individually chosen records: the results massively exceeded our expectations. Originally, Mr Thing was going to make a track from something in his collection too, but the three producers decided that he should go through the same process as they would. They picked a record from the racks of the shop (they had to find one he didn't already own first) and his beat was created from that. The result is four tracks that truly capture the personalities of each producer, and a record that is born out of a heartfelt love of records — we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.
