Patterns in My Mind (feat. Rachel Modest)

A 2 track soul single (7m 3s) — released January 29th 2016 on ATA Records

The Magnificent Tape Band are the alter egos of ATA Records founders Neil Innes & Pete Williams, who were the creative driving force behind last years debut album by The Sorcerers, for which they wrote and produced all the tracks as well as contributing bass and guitar performances. Sheffield born, Rachel Modest developed her unique vocal ability within the churches and gospel choirs of her local community. Now based in Leeds she has developed a powerful and soulful vocal style that takes inspiration from artists such as Madeleine Bell, Dee Dee Warwick, Dusty Springfield and on "Patterns In My Mind" delivers a performance that occasionally resembles the falsetto of The Delfonics William Hart.

Taking inspiration from the more abstract end of the soul spectrum that has been a richly tapped vein for hip-hop producers, The Magnificent tape band aim to create an evocative tapestry of sound that pulls together psychedelic soul with British library music to create a distinctly dramatic sounding record. Recorded on original '60s equipment, using vintage instruments, "Patterns in my mind" immediately brings to mind the more experimental psychedelic soul records of the late 60s/early seventies by incorporating driving clavinet, loping drums and swirling organ alongside Rachel Modest's ethereal vocals.

Support comes from Floating points, Wah Wah 45's Dom Servini, Shawn Lee & Adrian Younge.

Airplay so far has come from Shawn Lee (Soho radio) and Dom Servini (Amazing radio) with radio play from BBC6 Music (Craig Charles Funk & Soul Show, Huey Morgan) forthcoming.
