Wah Wah 45s are proud to present a brand new project where label boss, esteemed producer, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, AdamScrimshire, is let loose to remix "Cages" - the critically acclaimed LP released last year by southern soul boysThe Milk.

This full set of reworks from the South London based sonic chameleon is set to build on heavy radio support from Huey Morgan, Gilles Peterson, Jamz Supernova, Radcliffe & Maconie and Cerys Matthews on BBC 6Music, The Selector, Radio X, BBC Radio London, and beyond, to add to mainstream and specialist press props for both The Milk and Scrimshire's original work.

From the introspective downtempo revisions of "Broken Sky", "The Great Sorrow" and "Cages"; the latin / jazz flavoured take of "Never Come Down"; dance floor friendly reworkings of "Colours" and "Feels So Good"; to the out-there versions of "Knock Me Out For Ten" and "Wild Chained Man" the producer took a lot of pleasure in having the opportunity to demonstrate his full range as a remixer on such rich and soulful source material.

'Having heard the songs come together in the studio, it was really interesting to get a bit more time to pull apart the tracks for the whole album and understand its building blocks a bit better. The journey of remixing a whole album is a new one on me. It started just after finishing my album Believers Vol. 1 and it opened up a lot of ideas and new ways of thinking about what a remix should be. I went into a lot of different places with these versions and I just hope people enjoy the new spaces I put these songs in.'Adam Scrimshire

Having cut his teeth with three much loved albums right here on Wah Wah 45s, Scrimshire released his first album on Albert's Favourites in 2019. The LP, "Listeners", featured collabs with the likes ofEmma-Jean Thackray, James Alexander BrightandGeorgia Anne Muldrow, and gained plaudits includingBBC 6Music Album of the Day. The 2020 follow up "Believers Vol.1" featured, amongst others, latin bass worriersPenyaand UK soul royaltyOmar. He released his latest opus, "Nothing Feels Like Everything", in October this year featuring legendsCleveland WatkissandUrsula Rucker, as well as burgeoning London jazz talent like TamarCollocutorandIdris Rahman.

The Milk are four life-long friends, Ricky Nunn (vocals), Mitch Ayling (drums) Luke Ayling (bass) and Dan Le Gresley (guitar) who formed their first band when they were still at school in Essex, playing countless working men's clubs.

Since signing to Wah Wah 45s, the band released their second album "Favourite Worry", which becameone of BBC 6 Music's albums of the year, and the critically acclaimed follow up "Cages"; sold out London's Union Chapel, KOKO and Hoxton Hall; toured with theFun Lovin' Criminalsand recently got back on the road in in the summer of this year, culminating in a packed at show at London's famous Jazz Café.
