P.L.O. ‘F*ckSpace&Lazers’ is out now…

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

After much wait P.L.O.’s ‘F*ckSpace&Lazers’ single is finally here.

P.L.O. - F*CKSPACE&LAZERS

P is one of the most talented producers we’ve ever met let alone had the pleasure of working with. He’s been a corner stone of the label diligently working away behinds the scenes to fuel numerous other artist’s development via any number of his talents. And for those that know, they’ll tell you, he’s truly talented.

But never one to stay in the box, he’s been working on numerous projects of his own featuring some hip-hop power-houses that cover the entire spectrum of the music and everything else out there too. ‘F*ckSpace&Lazers’ represents his debut solo single. A rich and ever evolving head nod ride, it crescendos into a second movement sounding like Barry White for the new beat generation, meets Bladerunner. We suggest you find a good system, turn it up loud and sink into the blissful ride.

It’s available on iTunes worldwide now. UK iTunes // US iTunes // Aus iTunes

You can follow P.L.O. on Twitter @P_Leezy

NEWS: P.L.O. putting the finishing touches to his next SINGLE RELEASE ‘F*ckSpace&Lazers’

Sunday, September 9th, 2012
The finishing touches...

P.L.O. has been at work putting the finishing touches to his new track ‘F*ckspace&Lazers’ that will be out shortly. It’s Barry White making love to synths with an unhappy ending. It’s been re-tweaked to perfection and the finished thing is an absolute musical work of art.

Talking of which the cover is a crisp visual too. A collaboration between our own Mayor on art direction, the incredible talents of Alex Mills of Burning Red on the camera with the deathly gorgeous Masubi in perfect freeze frame.

We threw a sneaky candid shot from behind the scenes on the AM Instagram @AssociatedMinds a little while back and we’ll have a few more outtakes from the cover shoot up soon as well. So if you’re not already, you should follow us over there. You won’t want to miss them.

Trust us!

Coming Soon Part 1: P.L.O. – SEBANGAU

Saturday, March 17th, 2012
P.L.O. - SEBANGAU

The cover to the soon to be out P.L.O. produced hip-hop instrumental ‘Sebangau’ named after the village that inspired it.

Mudmowth has been living in Indonesia and Borneo for the last year or so and is working on a forthcoming EP to stamp mark it. He sent back a sample pack of Indonesian folk music for a few select producers to get busy with.

P.L.O. is just putting the finishing touches to his offering for the EP.

The enchanting Sebangau has a raw energy and soul in both the place and the finished beat and we’re looking forward to putting the instrumental out there as well as looking forward to hearing what Mud does on it.
