4ourth 4loor – Songs from the Fourth Floor is released for digital download on the DHM record label, distributed by Label Worx on 22nd February 2019.
4ourth4loor is the innovation of Yorkshire Electronica artist Andrew Tomlinson. The album, ‘Songs from the Fourth Floor’ reflects Andrew’s East Riding origins and spans influences from ghosts and memories, love and loss to sublime highs and deathly lows.
The album has already attracted the attention of UK wide radio and social media sites. Music blogger Red Herring: “It’s fresh and it’s totally contemporary electronic dance music, flowing from hard-edged dance to an ethereal chill out closer. Get in the car, turn it up loud, and head off to the coast. Take a trip through an album of uplifting songs but look out for the ghosts of love, loss and threads of the supernatural. Total feel-good, blow you away stuff.”
Journalist Phil Ascough on BBC Radio: “It sounds amazing – really modern electronic dance style with loads of remix potential”
Graham Brady: “I actually think it is fantastic. I played it through about three or four times it’s got some real positive energy, the same energy pet shop boys had…”
Media producer/director Darren Edwards: “It’s got big commercial potential…”
