Launching Michael Kiwanuka’s brand new label venture, Movement Records, on December 9 will be Count On You, a debut single by new artist Christian Gregory.
Count On You was co-written with Kiwanuka and was recorded in one take at the Movement Records studio in North London using a range of vintage instruments and recording gear, in order to capture a live sound and to cultivate an organic and special feel to the track.
As Gregory explains: “I love when records have details that you only notice after you’ve heard it over and over again. On Count On You, we recorded the core parts of the track in one take to catch a live vibe. Then I got in the studio and experimented with unusual recording techniques to add different details and textures to the track.”
The track was then mixed in New York by Ben Kane, who has recently been working on D’Angelo’s long-awaited third album. A live record label showcase is planned for the end of the year.
