about

As we’re all too aware, the world has changed significantly since NuNorthern Soul founder Phat Phil Cooper served up the first Winter Warmers compilation in December 2019. With millions around the world struggling under lockdowns caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the need for atmospheric, evocative and emotion-rich musical positivity is greater than ever before.

For this reason, Cooper has chosen to make Winter Warmers Season 2, his second collection of aural winter sunshine from the NuNorthern Soul vaults, extra-special. Because of this, the collection features a swathe of previously unreleased, unheard tracks as well as hand-picked gems tailor-made to soundtrack both ice-cold winter walks, and nights spent indoors dreaming of holidays in sunnier climes.

Many of these previously unheard cuts are genuine gems. For proof, check Sun Fanatics’ sublime Beatless Mix of George Koutalieris’ ‘Morning Ferry’, a sumptuous sunrise voyage across an imaginary harbour accompanied by cascading jazz guitar solos, warming electric piano keys and stretched-out chords, and the never-before-heard instrumental version of BJ Smith’s ‘We Can Sail’, an impossible-to-pigeonhole delight that deftly showcases the full breadth and depth of its creator’s musical and production skills.

The collection also includes another exclusive instrumental version of a BJ Smith original – the jaunty, horn-heavy breeziness of ‘Keep on Movin’, which recalls his frequent Smith & Mudd collaborations with with Paul Murphy – and an unheard, vocal-free version of Ron Basejam’s slow-motion, string-laden revision of Ragz Nordset’s ‘You Started It All’.

Further highlights scattered across the compilation include Andi Handley’s inventive, jaunty and off-kilter remix of Ryo Kawasaki’s mutant Japanese jazz-funk classic ‘Hawaiian Caravan’; Mike Salta and Mortale’s emotional tribute to the late, great Jose Padilla, ‘Behind The Rainbow [Ode to Jose]; the horizontal fusion-funk of Y.M.D.F’s ‘B Natural’; and Cooper’s own beatless dub of Faint Waves’ nu-Balearic gem, ‘Aphrodesia’.

To aid horizontal listening, Cooper has laid down two continuous, 30-minute mixes of the material showcased on the album. These will be available as bonus tracks to those who buy the full compilation as a digital download, and also on either side of a limited-edition cassette version of Winter Warmers Season 2.
