Tribe Records is proud to announce the first release In the Tribe Vaults series, Tribe Vaults Volume One: Afro House, a collection of unreleased songs and fresh remixes of tracks produced throughout Tribe's history from 2008 to date.
As the Tribe Vaults series grows it will show how Tribe has developed, but this won't be a Greatest Hits package as the Vaults series will present hidden gems, the unreleased material that has been saved, put by and hoarded until there were enough precious tunes and specially-commissioned mixes for each Volume.
Tribe is known best for its wicked deep and soulful house releases, and the Vaults series will feature plenty more of those, but these genre-specific collections should have a distinct appeal to DJs and club crowds.
Label boss and producer Zepherin Saint explains that he always wanted Tribe to be diverse, embracing different music from around the world at the forefront of breaking new styles of music and dance, wherever they are being made. Thats why this album brings together releases and remixes from right across Africa as well as from the UK, USA and France. 'When I coined the motto "One Sound One People" says Saint, 'it was for that reason, so that the label could operate as a kind of musical exchange regardless of the usual notions of world music and western dance, or distinctions based on an artist's musical background.'
Tribe Vaults Volume 1: Afro House presents brand new remixes which have been produced in 2012 alongside alternate mixes which were made over the past four years, together with original tracks such as 'Tokyo Sky' and Native King which have never been heard before. The Vaults series has been planned since Tribe Records was launched, so that fresh songs and remixed tracks by the great producers who work with the label could shine in a new album context.
