TM Juke (solo artist and producer co-writer of Alice Russell) & Robert Luis (A&R and Co-Owner of Tru-Thoughts) are the joint force which is Me & You.

From start to finish the album reaches out; slapping your auditory senses around the face, encapsulating the listener into a head-nodding, toe tapping dance floor stomping trance that won’t let go until the climax taking you on a journey through an eclectic spectrum influences from break beat, soul, jazz, dub step, broken beat, reggae, disco and drum and bass.

“Brown Paper Bag” (a reggae cover of the Roni Size / Reprazent d&b classic) and “The Hoop Loop”, have received a number of outstanding reviews and reactions as well as support from Rob Da Bank on Radio 1 and Danny Breaks who describes it as a track “that will never ever leave his record box”. This is followed by “Sneaker Thief” with its infectious horns and disco, break beat style. There’s even a little nod to Acid House but with Egyptian percussion being tweaked through the filters on “Elephant Takeover”. The album then takes a switch to drum and bass with the Afro influenced “Wouri River” and then into Calypso drum and bass(!) with “Last Night”. Look out for heavyweight remixes forthcoming on these tracks by Redeyes (Bingo Beats) and Benny Page (now signed to Shy FX’s Soundboy label). “Ze Zam” is tempo changing Brazilian Batucada Battle Weapon and “Got Any R&B?” is slightly noisier but still with a little twist. “Random Search” blends dub step, reggae bass lines and some Bollywood grooves to make a rolling track. This groove is also the basis for “Space Lizards” the hidden tune which finds Young Max from Dirty Diggers taking on two rappers roles. The one on the phone is a conspiracy “fan” and Max responds by trying to argue the case that Paul McCartney isn’t a lizard!

All of this results in a spectacular musical array of powerfully dynamic tunes set to keep dance floors across the world buzzing, an archetypical summer album!

The album Me & YouFloating Heavy” (Tru Thoughts) is going to be released June 29, 2007.
