â€œMorcheeba…establish a link between live rock performance and clubby electronica.â€ -Variety
Having sold 6 million albums, toured the world over and produced some of the most moving and instantly recognizable tunes throughout the nineties and â€œnoughtiesâ€ Morcheeba are about to make a massive return with their new album Dive Deep, that is considered by the founding members as an â€œemotional blueprintâ€ which has restored their faith in music.Â Dive Deep features guest vocalists ranging from established names such as acclaimed singer-songwriter Judie Tzuke, to relative newcomers Thomas Dybdahl from Norway, rapper Cool Calm Pete, and Manda, a French singer who contacted the Godfreys via Myspace, admitting it was her dream to sing with Morcheeba. Mandaâ€™s dream of collaborating with Morcheeba continues as she will be joining the brothers on tour along with another album vocalist Bradley Burgess.
â€œMood shifts within an appealing aqua world-music chill zone. Nice.â€ â€“ Rokovoko (1/2008)
â€œReally nice arrangements abound, a few of them harkening back to their Big Calm peakâ€¦a pretty good album, against all expectations.â€ â€“ Entertainment Today (1/2008)
Â Lead track Enjoy The Ride features Judieâ€™s soulful voice, which has enchanted Paul since childhood, and One Love Karma sees Cool Calm Pete incorporate the worldâ€™s first ever recorded fluteboxing â€“ a human beatbox through a flute. Riverbed and Sleep On It Tonight show off Thomas Dybdahlâ€™s impressive Roy Orbison like vocal range, and together, the collaborations provide an atmosphere of genuine fluidity and free-form exploration.
Dive Deep is out on Ultra Records February 19, 2008
