Jem Haynes, Ian Blevins – Second Line EP [Colour Series]

At the beginning of Summer 2011, Jem Haynes moved to the flat directly above me. This was soon the beginning of regular coffee’s and music making sessions. After getting involved in a series called Treme, our Second Line guise was born as we sought inspiration in a lot of the songs, drums and rhythms from the music in the series for an EP.

Over a year and a half has gone by and in that time has seen these tracks tested around the globe, including We Love at Ministry of sound and Space in Ibiza where they have worked to full effect on a weekly basis. This debut EP is also the first release on Jem Haynes new Colour Series label. More music is in the pipeline currently from ourselves, Jem and Mike Peters.

Positive feedback so far has come from Jozif, Orde Meikle, Gabriel Ananda, Nic Fanciulli, Luciano, Pete Tong, Sasha, C. Von Stroke, Bookashade, Chris Fortier, Anderson Noise, Dibby Dougherty, Benji Candelario, Lee curtis, Sander Kleinenberg, Rich Hawtin, Stephan Bodzin, ATFC, Tom Thorpe and Andrew Grant.
