Up, Bustle & Out’s founders are from Bristol, England.
They pioneered the early creative sound of Ninja Tune Records, London by experimenting with artists and sounds from across the globe. UB&O opened Ninja Tune’s doors to an international audience and produced 5 albums with the influential label.
They then made a further 2 Reggae-Hip Hop crossover albums on smaller European labels. And later in 2006, they will release a Mexican-USA-Caribbean inspired album called “Mexican Sessions (Our Simple Sensational Sound)”.
Up, Bustle & Out have taken a new direction – collaborating with World artists, recording songs with more complex movements and emotions. The first album in this series features the Turkish film actress-singer, Sevval Sam. The album is called ‘Istanbul’s Secrets’. Other guests are Andrea Echeverri from Colombia (US Grammy Winner ‘Best Female Singer’), Benjamin Escoriza of Radio Tarifa, Spain (4 times Grammy nominees / BBC World Music Award winners), Jim Barr on Double Bass, Portishead Band, Portuguese poet Kalaf and many more exciting artists.
