Emanative’s latest body of work comes in the form of this incredible collaborative piece of art all in the name of the charity, the Steve Reid Foundation. With features from Four Tet, Collocutor, The Pyramids, Earl Zinger, Jessica Lauren, Finn Peters, Rocketnumbernine, United Vibrations and Steve Reid collaborator Ahmed Abdullah! This will be a limited edition release of 500 2xLP on 180g-heavyweight vinyl.

This whole double album was conceived from the beginning as a way to raise both money and awareness for Gilles Peterson’s Steve Reid Foundation.
Orchestrated by Nick Woodmansey/Emanative, but not without the generosity, help and contribution of every musician and collaborator involved.

All of the effort and countless hours invested by all; from the musical, recording and mastering to the organisational and administrative; including the record’s art and design, have been given with the sole intention of flowing towards this cause – in the knowledge that all proceeds are going to The Steve Reid Foundation.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to have Emanative’s ‘The Light Years Of The Darkness’ album be our first release for the Steve Reid Foundation. In Keeping with Steve’s open ended approach and his musical history Nick Woodmansey has delivered a knock out Jazz and beyond album.” – Gilles Peterson
