To listen to the title track check the radio rip from Cerys Matthews show on BBC 6 Music:
'Calm The Still Night' is the lead single from Frameworks' debut album 'Tides', out later this year on First Word Records. The Manchester-based producer has spent the last few years carving his own niche in the industry, joining the dots between instrumental hip hop heroes Aim and RJD2, the epic soundscapes of Cinematic Orchestra and the deft songwriting of Bonobo.
For this track he has enlisted the vocal talents of Rioghnach Connolly who gives a captivating performance over Frameworks' lilting and subtle production. Effortlessly blending horns, strings and guitars with the hypnotic vocal, this is a track that is the perfect introduction to Frameworks' style. Label-mateQuiet Dawn adds low-slung hip-hop bounce on his remix, with staggered beats and moving bass to the fore.
Exclusive to the bandcamp release is a remix from Throwing Snow of 'Dawn' also featuring Rioghnach Connolly.
