Biography

Imagine Breakestra hanging with Cinematic Orchestra, or RJD2 teaming up with the Ethiopiques and you're close to the sound of Nostalgia 77.

Nostalgia 77 aka Ben Lamdin first burst onto the scene with his heavy, new funk based sound. The maturity and sensitivity of Nostalgia 77's music belie his relatively recent step into beat making. Influences are wide ranging; the drums of funk and hip-hop are strong guiding forces, as is the melody of jazz and the atmosphere of psychedelic rock. Having consistently refined the quality of his musical selection while DJing for a number of years, the fuller musical expression of actually making his own music was inevitable. Unleashing some club friendly tracks on Tru Thoughts' hugely influential 7Sevens imprint in 2002, he eventually followed up with his seminal debut LP entitled 'Songs For My Funeral' in February 2004, exploring a more downtempo and jazzier style. The success of his album encouraged him to progress with this style for his second album 'The Garden'. A style which he describes as "a combination of soul and jazz composition with computer based production techniques". Ubiquity Records will be releasing 'The Garden' domestically simultaneously with Tru Thoughts Recordings in the UK.
