BROADWAY PROJECT 'THE VESSEL' MEMPHIS INDUSTRIES
DAN BERRIDGE (aka BROADWAY PROJECT)'s debut album 'Compassion' was released to a rapturous reception from the critics, including GILLES PETERSON and JOHN PEEL. Now he and vocalist RICHARD PALMER have completed their new album 'The Vessel', following their last MINISTRY Leftfield Single of the Month & 7 MAG Essential Leftfield Tune 'The Vessel' is a precious one; within it a diverse collection of broody, filmic washes, spiralling, emotive plumes of music and ideas seemingly too fragile to put to record.
BROADWAY PROJECT has recently remixed for BADLY DRAWN BOY, NEIL HALSTEAD and SOULSAVERS. Press for the last album was out of control, expect more of the same: JOCKEY SLUT "Imagine Tom Waits duetting with Portishead and being produced by Boards of Canada. Desolation, anger and redemption hasn't sounded this alluring"... NME "A milestone of electronic melancholy, suffused with feverish creativity"... MUZIK "A strictly widescreen production... a cathartic experience, like emerging from a black hole into blazing sunshine. Simply stunning"... THE TIMES "Imagine Orb-like sonic layers, Erik Satie impressionism, Floydian guitar loops and Air-style melodies."
