Producers - a 'supergroup' of three of the UK's most successful music producers - are to release their debut album Made In Basing Street through Last Records on June 4. The album is described as: “technicolour pop, with added rock heavy guitars” and is the result of five years’ worth of performing from the collective of producers and artists. With five years' worth of live performing behind the band, the Producers started work in the studio before moving to a series of secret London gigs, with guest vocalists including Will Young and Jamie Cullum. They have recently taken part in interactive sessions across British universities in March, giving music students the opportunity to promote, soundcheck, roadie, film and perform alongside The Producers on tracks including Buggles hit ‘Video Killed The Radio Star’. The band is made up of Lol Crème who has collaborated with Kate Bush and Pet Shop Boys, producer Trevor Horn, who has worked with artists such as Seal, Charlotte Church and Robbie Williams, guitarist, engineer and producer Stephen Lipson who was nominated for a Grammy for his work on the Jeff Beck album Emotion And Commotion and drummer Ash Soan, who has recently recorded with Adele and Cee Lo Green. "You can play with lots of good musicians, but there's something about a particular group of musicians that only happens now and again, if you're lucky, I think," said Lol Creme on the band.
