First Listen! One51 – Together As One (Earnshaw’s Unity RE-Beat) (Duffnote)
One half of One51, Richard Earnshaw going deep and aerial on this retouch of ‘Together As One’. Here we have nothing but a fascinating dive into the abyss melted with electronic Jazz effect. The whole serving as the driving environment to African spoken words, with Mart Winning‘s flute part, standing as the icing on the cake…
Hard not to think of the brilliant ‘Si Weka’, although on a slightkly different tip/mood….

One51 saw the light in the first half of the 2000’s, from the reunion between Danny Jones and Richard Earnshaw.
Quite surprisingly, the twosome only released 5 singles together, even though they would be the subject of regular remixes along with time.
They eventually made their debut back in 2004 with ‘Si Weka’ back on Soulfuric Deep. A cut soon after followed by ‘Bring Me To Your Life’ which they released on their own One51 Recordings label. Then, noting more until 2012 with the release of ‘Elevate’. ‘Together As One’ coming up 3 years after on Duffnote Recordings. With ‘Enya’ completing the series in April 2017.
