King Lunp Theme / Into the Light

A 2 track funk single (5m 41s) — released February 1st 2019 on Delights 45

Delights is thrilled to welcome the long-awaited return of Beta Hector with a new solo 7inch!

With his first release in nearly 7 years, Hector (a.k.a. Simon Hill, MNP bassist) continues to explore the cinematic groove world, pioneered on his debut album "Sunbeam Insulin" (Tru Thoughts, 2011). This time, however, the spaced-out synthesizers made way for a rawer and even jazzier sound, provided by Hill's ensemble of long-time musical allies.

Infectious, tense and Noir-ish "King Lunp Theme" is backed with the warm, intimate and melancholic "Into The Light" on the flipside.

Two extraordinary sides on this one folks. - DJ Prestige Flea Market Funk, USA

[...] one for the ears! - Skeme Richards The Nostalgia King/Rock Steady Crew, USA

MNP bassist Simon Hill has assembled a crew of able bodied deviants for this must have double sided 45. - Baz Hickey 45 Live, Ireland

I honestly can't recommend this record highly enough! Both tracks are exactly the kind of edgy, psych-tinged jazz that truly excite me - DJ Format UK

Love the Ethio feel of 'King Lunp Theme', but 'Into The Light' is a beauty! Great record. - Mr. Bongo UK
