Kosheen's Markee Ledge releases 'Elevate' LP | News | MN2S

Kosheen member Markee Ledge is set to release his debut solo album on December 4, entitled ‘Elevate’.

Making the most of Kosheen’s break from recording new material, Ledge has finally brought to fruition the record that he’s been working on and off for over the last three years. Featuring guest appearances from and collaborations with Alys Be, Jodie Elms, DJ Youngsta, dubspeeka, Leon Switch, Seven and Susie Ledge, the 17-track album provides a snapshot of underground UK electronic music in 2015.

The record follows on from his five studio albums with Kosheen, and takes some of that big vocal sound and marries it to underground electronic styles. Lead single ‘Make Your Move’ features Alys Be (who has previously featured on tracks by Distance and Von D), who provides two other vocals, while Susie Ledge sings on ‘Picture Perfect’ and ‘Purity’. Rinse’s DJ Youngsta provides a deep remix of ‘Saturn’.

“I knew I had a bunch of very powerful songs in the bag and I was really digging the real deep sound coming from London and Rinse FM,” says Markee. “I wanted to reach out to the producers I was feeling and make fresh music and recapture that vibe we had on ‘Resist’ – a real current sound but with soulful, powerful songs.”

He will perform a live showcase with guests from the album at London’s Notting Hill Arts Club on 10 November 2015. You can hear tracks from the album in the player below.
