Albert's Favourites is a south London studio, production family and label. Home to several collaborations and solo projects from the creators. It was founded by the namesake's grandson Adam Scrimshire with Jonny Drop and Dave Koor of The Expansions - who indeed present the label's next release here. When they self released their first single in 2013 - the laid-back jazz funk of "Lavender", it quickly gained strong support from soul and rare-groove aficionados including Kenny Dope, Dom Servini, Patrick Forge and Andy Smith. The band have been constantly busy, playing around Europe with legendary British-Ghanaian soul singer Andrew Ashong and the upcoming talent Connie Constance. Conceived in a barn somewhere deep in Suffolk, "Breakthrough" represents a moment when the band felt they had a much clearer direction with their writing. A searing hybrid of jazz and funk with a positively hip hop backbone.
