Hifi Sean (aka Sean Dickson) will release three, limited edition 12” singles in March titled ‘3X3X12’, featuring songs from his album ‘FT’. The three tracks, written and produced by Sean, feature guest vocals from Fred Schneider (B52s) and Bootsy Collins (Funkadelic / Parliament), and guest synths from Dave Ball (Soft Cell).
Sean Dickson will be known to many for his astonishing musical background. He started out as the frontman and producer of multi-million selling band The Soup Dragons (‘I’m Free’, ‘Divine Thing’). He also fronted The High Fidelity, a band which drew critical acclaim and collaborated with the likes of John Peel and Mickey Finn (T-Rex).
Fast forward to today, and Sean is now a revered DJ and dance producer, playing at some of the most hallowed underground and after-hours clubs in London and around the world. His residencies at the likes of Fire and ‘Beyond’ at Ministry of Sound have transformed his legacy into something even more eclectic.
His new album features collaborations from across the musical spectrum. As well as those detailed here, you can expect to hear contributions from the likes of Yoko Ono, Alan Vega and David McAlmont.
'Truck' is a buzzing analogue Moog droning bass riff with handclap beats, featuring CB radio vocals by B-52’s frontman Fred Schneider. It plays homage to movies like Convoy and Smokey & the Bandit. In Flagranti pump up the beats and claps and give the track a NYC 80's B-Boy twist.
