For those of you who thought true school music was on the way out, Public Transit Recordings (PTR) is here to tell you the future is now. The PTR crew is excited to present the Messages from the Future EP, (MFTF) the debut release from Montrealer Sarah Linhares. The EP is laced with Sarah's steady dose of thought provoking lyrics and melodic vocals resulting in an original take on future soul music. MFTF Ep is bursting with synths, drum machines, Rhodes piano, heavy bass lines, and rough drum beats supplied by the production and musicianship of three talented producers including Moonstarr (Public Transit Recordings), Aklimatize (Future Elements), and Portugal's Camplaix. Fans of Erykah Badu, Kissy Asplund and J. Davey definitely take note!
The first track Step up, features Moonstarr's signature sound, syncopated drums and raw synth stabs as Sarah's vocals urging all the independent artists to Step up their game and come out of their shell. A 909 Moonstarr remix of Step up gives the track a bit of an old school techno sound but with an updated feel. On Its all True producer Camplaix weaves a spacey J-Dilla esque vibe over Sarah deep vocals. The EP is rounded out with No Question, this one is definitely one for the dance floors as Aklamatize takes you back to the London Coop Days, with some serious Bruk Heat that works perfectly with Sarahís energetic vocals.
