The Letter
Happy New Year, and congrats for getting through Blue Monday! We have an exciting year coming up for you, with lots of quality releases we are looking to get our hands on for you, as well as a couple of exclusive presses coming on our own imprint in the second half of the year.

Kicking off for January, we have a couple of lovely records for you. Let’s start with the EP. This double A side gift of 80s rework joy sold out very, very quickly when it hit the shops last month, and with good reason. “De-Mixes Vol. 1” is a hark back to an ‘80/early ‘90s New York dancefloor, beefing up “Love Will Save the Day” by Whitney Houston on one side, and Crystal Waters’ “Gypsy Woman” on the other. These lovingly crafted reworks should help get us all through these dark January days, and I suspect we’ll be hearing them a lot in the clubs when we’re allowed back out.

Now, the album. I have to say this one has been a pain to get, (with some of the copies we have coming straight from the artists’ own stashes), but well worth it! “Diabolique” by L’Epee is the product of Anton Newcombe, leader of the Brian Jonestown Massacre, and French actress Emmannuelle Seigner. This is heavily ‘60s flavoured psychedelic pop with more than a smattering of Yé-yé that just oozes Parisian cool. it has its moments of weirdness too, and we all agree here at W&S is exceptionally well produced. If you have the time, it is worth a listen through in its entirety, maybe while sitting in an overstuffed velvet chair with a martini or two....
