Acclaimed record label Hobbes Music returns to Soulsville International with local talent The Nightlark (aka Giles Walker) to celebrate its latest vinyl release, from Tokyo’s Kota Motomura: ‘Pay it Forward’ (his debut album).

Following hype for a string of releases from Bill Brewster and BBC 6 Music’s Tom Ravenscroft in particular, Pay it Forward maintains the Hobbes Music record label’s form for bringing well-produced soulful dance records into the club, not least Hobbes’ own productions & vinyl releases alongside Leonidas, the last two of which have caused a particular stir on the Balearic scene, with one being crowned Bill Brewster’s Record Of The Year:
And the other gaining plaudits & plays from daytime BBC 6Music (among others):
