Under The Radar: Leith Bass Team

Leith Bass Team is the brainchild of Edinburgh producer, and Alextronic Records founder, Paul Croan, and was created as a vehicle for collaborating with different artists on his label. 

Breathe Me In, is the first single to emerge from the creative venture and features vocalist Georgia Gordon, who was introduced to Croan by erstwhile record shop supremo and Simple Minds manager, Bruce Findlay, at one of our Born To Be Wide evenings.

Boasting an ambient vibe and a light dub beat, it is easy to imagine hearing the song coming through the speakers of a minimalist bar in a designer hotel. So, it should come as no surprise that it has already been snapped up for the latest in the long-running Goa Beats compilation series, distributed by leading German dance label, Kontor Records.

Croan and Gordon continue to collaborate and the results are due to appear on Leith Bass Team’s debut album, scheduled for release in the spring. Listen at https://soundcloud.com/leith-bass-team.
