Following in the footsteps of Hospital luminaries High Contrast and London Elektricity, with a unique combination of lounge-core flavour and tough dancefloor skills, “Brave Nu World” is the outstanding long-play debut from The Talented Mr Gresham aka Nu:Tone.

There are some heavyweight vocal hook-ups on this LP – original studio business is on the agenda here; no half-arsed accapella nonsense! Jazz diva Natalie Williams wraps her sultry vocals around the radio bomb “Seven Years”, and “Strange Encounter” (that rarest of things: a full vocal d&b workout which actually works on the dancefloor).

SP:MC picks up the mic for his recording debut, to add hypnotic lyrics and North London know-how on the dubwise rollout “Heaven Sent”. “Can We?” sees Nu:Tone join forces with London Elektricity and Liane Carroll, resulting in full-on gospel infused soul heaven. And, as if all that wasn’t enough, Soul 2 Soul legend Rose Windross makes a very rare guest appearance, bringing her unmistakable voice to “All Over The World”.

There are plenty of nuggets to keep any dancefloor rocking too. Club favourites like “Ebb + Flow” and “Right Now”, fully road-tested on plate for over a year, plus “Countdown” (a family funktion with Dan’s own little brother Logistics), alongside bonafide smashers “Breathless” and the classic re-rub of Lenny Fontana’s “Spread Love”.

The Nu Boy proves he’s got what it takes to challenge the big dogs in 2005. The album Nu:ToneBrave Nu World” (Hospital) will be released on 07.03.2005.
