Right... you might have noticed a bit of a lull of the Flatcap front recently, and there is a fairly awesome reason for this!
A few months back we were deciding what tracks we were working on that we liked the most, and would be best to put on a new EP. We then realised we'd be left with all the tracks we thought weren't as good as the others, and we didn't much like that thought... so, we've been working hard to develop them all to the same standard (note to self, finish writing tracks one at a time in the future).
Next year, we will release our very first FULL LENGTH CAPTAIN FLATCAP ALBUM, which will consist of these tracks and more! There will also be some featured artists/ producers on the release, but all will be revealed nearer the time!
Work on the album's going very well, but there's still lots to be done! Anyway, this is why we're not gigging much at the moment. I thought you'd like to know! I can't bloody wait for you lot to hear what we've got for you!!!
There's lot's of cool things that've been going on recently anyway, here's some other stuff that might have passed you by due to Facebook only showing you a small percentage of our posts:
Brand new FREE Rodrigo & Gabriela Remix! As promised, our brand new remix of Rodrigo & Gabriela's track 'Tamacun'! Been working on this one with Tom for a while now, really pleased to have finally finished it and have you guys check it out! If you dig it, please show your support by sharing it around! Nice one guys!

Rappers Delight - Sugar Hill Gang Vs. The Snake - Parov Stelar. I've had a few requests for this mashup over the last couple of years, you might have heard it in a couple of my earlier mixes. I thought it was about time to let you guys have it for free, and what better way to kick start our Hearthis account!
Listen/ download over on Hearthis:
Hope you guys enjoy it, and if you do, share it around if you'd be so kind!
We've got a lot of footage mounting up from the summer, we're saving most of it for reasons you'll soon discover... But for now here's a couple of clips shot by Chris Rey at Illusive Festival this year, accompanied by a sneaky clip of one of the tracks from our forthcoming album, enjoy!

Lovely little review of Wonder Fields Festival, with a pretty humbling blurb about us: "This band never fails to get everyone up on their feet, it seems, with their own brand of flat cap farmer-funk with soaring flute, uplifting guitar, driving rhythms and basslines which seem to swoop down from nowhere, scoop you up and carry you along with them. It’s impossible not to look alive and get as close to the front as you possibly can with this Guildford based collective drawing you to them." ...awesome! Big up UK Festival Guides!

We were voted the 'Best New Act' at Victorious Festival this year! Pretty stoked about that! It was undoubtably the most energetic gig we've done this year.
...and here's a little clip of us playing 'Funky Farmers'...
...aaaaand some lovely Photography by Kirsty Herring and Thisandmatt.
Happy little video of No Man's Land Festival this year by Oliver Pooley Photography! He's used our remix of Kitten & the Hip's 'Shut Up And Dance' as the soundtrack, and there a few cheeky clips of our set too!
