Sunburst Radio

A 13 track beats & breaks album (46m 46s) — released October 15th 2012 on Wass Records

Daytoner – 'Sunburst Radio' LP

Steve Cantrill (aka 'Moss') devotes his spare time to generating sunshine sounds within the humble setting of a Penzance studio shed. As 'Daytoner', he's recently released 7" singles for funk-fuelled dance floors along with a dozen remixes for artists such as Smoove & Turrell, Nick Pride & The Pimptones and Mr Confuse on various European labels. All the singles to date have also received airplay on BBC Radio 1 and BBC6 Music.

Encouraged by reactions to early releases, Daytoner spent 3 years recording & compiling tracks for the debut LP 'Sunburst Radio'. He's forged old sounds from good friends, drawing on influences dug from charity shop vinyl & antique archives. As the title may suggest, expect a roof-down, retro-ride through Latin American, Blues, Jazz, Swing and Motown rhythms, underpinned by dance floor break beats, linked together by valve-age voices.

It's not just a DJ's album though, as there's also a soft centre of laid-back beats, perhaps hinting at the LP's Cornish origin. Nor is the LP just an assembly of samples as there's key contributions from friends, such as the stylish vocals of Jane Kennaway, Lucy Richards & Zoe Lewis on a number of original new songs written by Daytoner. Support also comes from the ever present bass of Patrick Redmond, Neil W Allen on slide guitar & Andy Worthy on sax and a cast list too long to list. Song highlights include the Latin groove of 'On My Own', the Motown stomp of 'Treat Me', the Jazz Breaks of 'The Mountain' and the minimal 'Great Unknown'.

"'Sunburst Radio' - 55 minutes of feel-good bossa, old soul, swing jazz, blues & breaks, bundled by valve-age voices in a SW shed!"
