Originally released last year as a craftily-cultured white label, Misti Blu not only went on to sell over 10,000 copies at a fiver a throw in a matter of weeks; but also reaped praise from the likes of Radio 1 with Mary Anne Hobbs declaring Misti Blu to be the most requested record ever on her Breezeblock show. Repeated plays also came on Pete Tong, The Blue Room and Lamacq Live as well as KISS, XFM and Galaxy.
While the radio waves warmed to its simple breath of emotion, column inches of acclaim accrued with support from such estimable publications as Sleaze Nation, 7, Jockey Slut, Mixmag, Muzik, DJ and I-DJ. All joined hands in appreciation of an unknown Nottingham act and their already sly, shy little classic.
Amillionsons was born late last year when a producer's life was saved by a DJ who ran an Acid Jazz nite. Today, the third member is old enough to get served in pubs and possesses his own guitar, so they are three: Robin Junga, Matt Shelton and Sam Toolan.
Based on, and sampling Dorothy Moores erection section classic, the original white label version of Misti Blu came hot on the heels of amillionsons first vinyl outing, the Steve Lamaqc-championed, Ali-meets-Simpsons, iconic ironic lunatic ali shuffle of Stay Off The Dope.
If Dope dealt with entertainment and the hip hop rumble in the concrete jungle then Misti Blu was the emotional, comfort blanket lying a few feet away in the chill-out bunker. Built around phat 6/8 beats and flamenco bass, it married a cut-up and blow-dried sample of Moores soaring, melancholic vocal with the irreverent but groovy insight of amillionsons and their mates-about-town schmoov, neon heights and souldoubt.
