mastersystem dance music vinyl


Regular price £18.99 Sale

Release Date: 6th April 2018


The debut album from the band formed of members from Frightened Rabbit, Editors and Minor Victories. Mastersystem's Dance Music is now taken in a different context after the recent, devastating passing of the late singer-songwriter of the band and Frightened Rabbit - the supremely talented and sadly missed Scott Hutchison. The album was released only a month before his death, and stands as the last music released by the Frightened Rabbit frontman. Dance Music is a brilliant no frills rock record with a nod to post-hardcore of the late 90's and 2000's like a heavier, rawer version of earlier Frightened Rabbit records. Hutchison leaves us with this little gem to accompany all of the superb Frightened Rabbit records he and his brother Grant (drummer in Mastersystem) released during his all too brief time on this earth. Thank you for the music Scott - we'll always play this one up to 11 and have a drink in your memory.

FFO: Frightened Rabbit, Minor Victories, Editors, Post-Hardcore


"Mastersystem are a project comprised of two musical siblings, a collaborative effort featuring Scott Hutchison and Grant Hutchison (Frightened Rabbit), Justin Lockey (Editors), James Lockey (Minor Victories). The story starts back when Frightened Rabbit recruited a couple of straight-up filmmakers and fine fellas from Yorkshire to follow them around on their tour of the Scottish Highlands. The two filmmakers spent time photographing mountains while Frightened Rabbit smashed out the classics to adoring crowds. The filmmakers were Justin and James Lockey and this trip would be the beginning of a long creative relationship between the two sets of brothers. Due to the respective schedules of band members’, the album finally came together at the end of 2017. Produced by Justin Lockey, Dance Music is a dark, honest, soaring album, exactly what one might expect if Frightened Rabbit, Editors and Minor Victories combined forces."
