ROSS FROM FRIENDS
Ross From Friends will release his debut album “Family Portrait” on Friday 27 July via Brainfeeder.
‘Pale Blue Dot’ is the new track and video lifted from the album.
In 1990, when Felix (aka Ross From Friends) was just a twinkle in his father’s eye, his dad - having built up a sound system in the 1980s while playing at various squat parties around London (including the then derelict Roundhouse) - decided that he wanted to get out of the capital and
see some of Europe.
He got his hands on a bus and started putting word out through a network of like-minded friends and acquaintances. At the time just a friend of a friend, the trip caught the attention of Felix’s (future) mum, who offered to document the whole thing in return for a seat, and in 1990 they loaded up the sound system and hit the road. They travelled through France, Belgium, West and East Germany (though returning through a unified one) and beyond, setting up in towns to share their passion for the sounds of hi-NRG dance, Italo disco and proto-Techno through spontaneous parties in whatever venue they could find.
The video, constructed from home footage - shot by "Ross's" (future) mum - tells the story of the spontaneous raves his parents set up on a bus trip around Europe in 1990.
Ross From Friends will release his debut album “Family Portrait” next Friday 27 July via Brainfeeder.
