"A soul-exceptional artist" (Blues & Soul UK)

The soul singer and songwriter based in England known as Myles Sanko released his debut “Born in Black & White” to broad critical and fan acclaim in 2013. Featuring seven original funk and soul tracks written and performed by Myles himself, this EP was perceived and played in the style of soul greats such as Bill Withers, Otis Redding, Al Green and James Brown, all of whom Myles openly names and proudly as his main musical influences. A stop-to-finish work of deep grooves and jazzy musical knowledge, Now “Born in Black & White” is followed up by Myles Sanko’s first full-length album “Forever Dreaming”. “I want my music to be a place to feel alive,” says Myles Sanko and presents 10 versatile compositions, written with his longtime songwriting partner Thierry Los. Styles are ranging from the melodic soul-jazz oft he title track „Forever Dreaming“ through the spiritual acid jazz of „Take A Look At Me Now“ to the energetic soul dancer „Shooting Star“.



Kerbside Collection Remixed & Reworked vinyl



"Love it! Ennio Styles remix is really funky & raw!" (Gilles Peterson / Brownswood) 

"Great mixes!" (Lance Ferguson / The Bamboos)

Kerbside Collection's debut jazz funk and rare  groove LP „Mind the Curb“ (released May 2013 on Légère Recordings) gets the remix, rework and re-use treatment with a variety of re-interpretations from fellow Aussie and international friends with everything from dubby-pacific-nu disco, analogue breaks and beats to balearic Japanese nu jazz.

Brisbane beatsmith Blunted Stylus (Geoff Blunted/Jigzaw Geoff/Ex Resin Dogs) kicks off the release with a heavy low slung, analogue, jazzy, b-boy breakbeat remix of „Jelly Belly“. Another living legend of the Australian scene – Ennio Styles (Stylin' radio show/Melbourne) completely flips „Sweet like Nectar“ into an uptempo lo-fi, live disco- boogie, dancefloor shaker. Japanese Dj and producer Chikashi Nishiwaki continues his remix love affair with Aussie groups and delivers a balearic re-make of „41 Bernhard“, teaming up with some friends to create a beautiful crossover piece fusing nu jazz, bossa and breaks flavours. Renegades of Jazz hits us with the fat, b-boy breaks flavour on the remix of 'Cat Whip', complete with acid bass line, synths and congas for extra dancefloor pressure.

This limited edition 12inch vinyl single (100 copies) with selected tracks from the digital release will be available in specialist shops.
