""Some jaw-droppingly great acts - if only Radio One sounded this fresh, the music world would be a richer place."
~ John Earls, Channel 4, UK
Radio Wonderlust Vol 1. offers a first taste of Storm Gordon's soulful romanticism & downtempo dance rhythms; Dravidian's Carnathic-inspired vocal style & mix of Indian & sampled/hip-hop beats; the surreal songwriting & warped pop of Drongo; and culminating in the extended ambient/downtempo collaboration, 'The Waves' -co-written by Drongo & the Navigator.
Scottish composer-producer David Galbraith , aka the Navigator (ex-Botany 5 - 90's ambient dance pioneers), worked closely with these three original & diverse artists to create an album that seamlessly flows from one song to the next - revealing the shared optimism & close underlying bond between them as a musical collective at this time.
After recording & launching the Radio Wonderlust project together ,
Storm Gordon has gone on to write & record two more albums with David Galbraith, while Dravidian & Drongo have been following their respective musical paths, with further new recordings & releases now widely available .
Radio Wonderlust Vol 1 is the album that has brought each of these unique artists & songwriters their first UK, & now, wider exposure...
