It’s official – our new EP ‘#1 Solace Lane’ is out now!!!

#1 Solace Lane is the first in a four-part series of Vinyl EP releases which go together to make one big ‘Solace Lane’ album, the culmination of 10yrs of making music together as Selekt Few.

Sometimes it hits you in the gut, in the heart, or in the mind. But we’re not talking about music, we’re talking about depression and anxiety, topics Selekt Few’s four-track EP #1 Solace Lane closely examines.

In today’s over filtered, image-obsessed society, listeners will welcome the EP’s honest but hopeful view on mental health.

Featuring memorable and motivating hooks combined with open and authentic bars from Percuss, Shareef and their feature guests, the four tracks take you on a journey through the various states of mental health and human emotion.

Despite the sombre subject matter throughout the songs, the sounds are uplifting and encouraging laced with stirring guitar riffs and soulful keys.

Starting with the tongue-in-cheek ‘Bite Me’, the EP moves into slightly bleaker territory with ‘One Piece’ and ‘Not My Way’, finishing with the optimistic and assuring ‘Goes On’. This one will hit you in the gut, heart and mind all at the same time… in a good way.

The ‘Solace Lane’ series is the culmination of 10 years of working together as Selekt Few, including thousands of hours of writing, rehearsing, performing, producing, recording, mixing and marketing our own music.

 

Last year we hid a song in our digital release Pt. 2

Continuing on from our post on hiding songs in digital releases a few weeks ago, we’re finally back to divulge our secrets. A few people sent me messages to say they found where the file was hidden, but no one actually worked out how to get it.  The secret track is hidden inside the HD artwork “Selekt Few – MD – Selekt Few MD Bonus Artwork-HD.jpg”, you just have to unzip it.

How to get to the secret track

On Windows:

  1. Start by purchasing our album on bandcamp
  2. Unzip the bandcamp archive using your favourite zip tool
  3. Open the file ‘Selekt Few – MD – Selekt Few MD Bonus Artwork-HD.jpg‘ in your favourite zip tool and unzip it.  If you have problems, try WinZIP or WinRAR.

On Mac:

  1. Start by purchasing our album on bandcamp
  2. Unzip the bandcamp archive using your favourite zip tool
  3. Open Terminal.app
  4. Type unzip, then a space, then drag ‘Selekt Few – MD – Selekt Few MD Bonus Artwork-HD.jpg‘ into the Terminal window and press Return.
  5. Your user directory should now contain ‘00-Selekt Few-Listen feat. Paradox-16bit-44k-master.mp3‘.

So there you have it, you can now enjoy our digital hidden track.  Keep your eyes peeled for Pt. 3 to learn how to hide tracks in your own digital releases.
