The Story Of UsThe Story Of Us is the debut album from Detroit-bred vocalist/songwriter Quinn XCII. The album if filled with refreshing authenticity and grassroots appeal, and is highlighted by standout single Straightjacket, an infectious track that combines stylish retro-electronic chops with a sultry reggae snap into its own pop sound about a psycho from a Midwest suburb. The album effortlessly fuses pop, soul, electronic, hip-hop, and reggae-tinged vocal stylings with Spartan proficiency, and presents a lively arc of songs that connects the growing fan base who follow Quinn XCII.
Whether it's the cautionary gold digger-in-reverse wisdom of Fake Denim, or the witty-but-wary life lessons flung in the catchy Flare Guns, and darker Tourist, or irresistible pop sunburst of One Day At A Time, Quinn XCII unveils each track in a flurry of pulse-raising shades.
For The Story Of Us, Quinn XCII connected with some new producers and collaborators, including Michael Keenan (G-Eazy's Me, Myself and I), buzzing songwriter Scott Harris (The Chainsmokers' Don't Let Me Down, Shawn Mendes' Treat You Better and There's No Holding Me Back), veteran David Gamson (Kelly Clarkson, Kesha) Robby Hauldren (from the duo Louis The Child, who Quinn XCII toured with last year), and The Wiild, who helmed both Fake Denim and the previously released Straightjacket. However, fans can still expect the signature sounds he's known for, as he continues to team up with ayokay (who fully produced his two previously released EPs) on the album as well.
Regarding The Story Of Us, Quinn XCII comments: I wanted the album title to really represent that I'm just like everyone else and go through similar experiences. The songs are relatable and touch on all different topics and emotions new, old, good and bad relationships, growth, memories, temptation, and challenges. I'm just a kid from the Midwest. My life isn t this unattainable fantasy, I didn't have an angle or connections to the music industry. I just worked hard to turn my passion into a career, anyone can do the same in whatever they're pursuing.1. Intro (Slow)

Pointless Nostalgic (Pure Pleasure)This is the sensational debut album by Jamie Cullum - the brightest young male singer/pianist on the block. Jamie Cullum has quickly become a household name after Candid Records launched Jamie with the original, award winning hit album Pointless Nostalgic. A caustic blend of hip, catchy originals, contemporary covers and standards, Pointless Nostalgic went straight to the top of the charts and demanded attention.
Barely in his twenties, Cullum has a wise old rasp that usually takes decades of chain-smoking to acquire. Cullum's move to mix jazz standards, American songbook classics, and contemporary popular music was a risky one that could easily isolate fans of each genre. However, Cullum managed to find a unifying thread in all of the styles, tying them together in a manner that seemed like the natural culmination of a diverse record collection. Jazz plays heaviest in the mix, but Cullum's version of it is lively and roguish. A rock & roll spirit among erstwhile snobs, he brings blue jeans to the beret set.
Highlights come courtesy of Cullum's diverse and well-chosen array of cover songs. While so many Harry Connick, Jr. wannabes stick to the standards and limply mimic moves lifted from Frank Sinatra's catalog, Cullum hops from Radiohead to Thelonious Monk with equal verve and accomplishment. Closing number I Want To Be A Popstar is a playful rumination on the advantages of being a pop star rather than a jazz key pounder. The mischievous romp exemplifies the lighthearted approach that has become Cullum's calling card, endearing him to jazzophiles and screaming young girls alike.

About Pure Pleasure
At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Pure Pleasure all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.
During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existent tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.
A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.
We should like to emphasize that Pure Pleasure Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle.
We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.
To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.1. You And The Night And The Music
