Product Description

After a series of inspiring meetings Matt Bianco (Mark Reilly) and New Cool Collective noticed that their style of music and work were a perfect match. They sent ideas back and forth between London and Amsterdam, which first resulted in an EP containing 5 tracks. Four brand new songs and one remake of the well-known Matt Bianco hit ‘Don’t Blame It On That Girl’. They went on ‘The Things You Love’-tour shortly after and due to the great success and demand for more music New Cool Collective and Matt Bianco decided to record a complete album.
Five new numbers appear on the album alongside the EP tracks: including ‘Cry’, the superb combi with Clean Bandit singer Elisabeth Troy, and a Matt Bianco & New Cool Collective makeover of one of NCCs own songs: The result is a swinging version of the song ‘Bring It On’.
Mark Reilly about the collaboration with NCC: ”...I had heard NCC’s name but was not familiar with its music. I was really impressed by NCC’s musical and energetic sound after seeing some videos. The band’s influences are very similar to my own but different enough to make an interesting collaboration...”
‘Get Out Of Your Lazy Bed’ and ‘Half A Minute’ are just two out of the many hits that turned Matt Bianco into one of Europe’s biggest acts in the early 80s.
Their first album “Whose Side Are You On?” made Matt Bianco superstars and the album went platinum in many countries around the world. The mixture of ska, jazz and soul with Basia’s impressive and sophisticated vocal harmonies was something unheard in 1983.
After the first album Mark Reilly teamed up with ex-Wham keyboarder Mark Fisher - extending the range of their music to bossa nova, salsa and 60ies pop and contributing to the creation of a more contemporary sound. Together with Incognito and The Brand New Heavies, Matt Bianco are the best example of fusion between pop and black music influences to be found in British music since the 80s.
