“FROM THE ROOTS” is the third album from Punx Soundcheck. It represents their year zero; a journey through their truest influences and into new directions, their most cohesive and complete album so far. Bringing together the music that shaped them and the music that’s shaping their future, “From The Roots” traverses disco and house, reggae and dubstep, electro and (old) rave, all the while sounding effortlessly and elegantly modern.
Tracks from the summer of 09’s “Cassette Eject” EP make a welcome return on the album, the club favourites “Cassette” and “Youth” joined by a brand new reworking of “Arcade Pony”. November 2009 saw the single release of the nouveau filtered disco monster “Whoa”, it’s twisted cut-up style eyeing up the dancefloor with serious intent.
Musical Youth’s Dennis Seaton provides reggae credentials and guest vocals on “Good Love”, whilst newcomer to the Punx Soundcheck fold Sim: One rocks it on “Badboy Sound” and future single “Keep It Flowing”; regular guest C. Monts gives us what-for on “Slip Disc” and narrates the theme music of the best film never made with “Rocker Time Style”, coming on like John Carpenter if he’d grown up in Dalston...
