All Night Long (A Tribute To Andrè Brasseur)
Covid-19 has influenced and harmed many artists. Gravity Noir didn't want to use the Corona theme in new songs, but rather raised it in a sublime way in their latest music video 'All Night Long'. It has once again become a very danceable song and is a great follow-up to their most recent hit singles 'Planet Called Love' and 'Universal Party'. 'Planet Called Love' was in the LGBTQ Music Chart TOP 50 for no less than 52 weeks and even scored a nice 2nd place. 'Universal Party' survived 23 weeks and scored 4th place. Maybe 'All Night Long' has a good chance to win a new TOP 3 place. Buy the EP download now for just 1€ (Stay safe special offer)

Banjax was a folk and ceilidh-dance band based in Hastings on the south coast of England, mainly active during the 1990s. This EP release was made possible by Keith Leech, who wrote the song, and his cousin Patrick Knight (Gravity Noir) who made the remix
Banjax was a folk and ceilidh-dance band based in Hastings on the south coast of England, mainly active during the 1990s. The name is a play on words, referencing the fact that its members were initially drawn from the members of the local Mad Jacks Morris dancers.
The band initially coalesced more or less organically around the iconic figure of Dave Roberts, a melodeon player who for some years had been a member of the folk super-group Blowzabella before he moved to Hastings to take up a job teaching at the local college. The initial line-up of Banjax was as follows (in alphabetical order); Peter Bolwell (saxophone and recorder), Brian Chainey (drums), Gilly Henry (later to be known as Gilly Linn – violin and recorder), Dennis Langley (concertina), Keith Leech (trombone), Cliff Mason (bass guitar), Pete Moore (trombone and vocals), Neil Parker (recorder and lead guitar), Lynda Ridley (recorder), Dave Rimell (rhythm guitar) and Dave Roberts (melodeon and whistle).
Banjax was basically a ceilidh-dance band, and ceilidhs require a "caller" to direct the dances and guide people through the movements before and during the performance. Unlike many such bands however Banjax did not need to work with external callers, since both Dave Roberts and Keith Leech were well able to do this themselves.
Banjax was always a big band with a big sound. From the start however they were resolved not simply to play the melody of the tune over and over as long as the dance required, as so many folk dance bands were prone to do, but to make the music interesting enough so that even those who were not dancing would find it worth listening to. The arrangements of the music were always therefore an important and characteristic feature of the band's sound.
In the early 1990s Banjax travelled with their own sound engineer, Dave Lock (another dancer from Mad Jacks Morris) and as a sign of their increasing self-confidence they felt the time was right to make a proper full-length album, which was released in 1992 on Compact Disc and cassette under the name "Chaos in One" (this time a quotation from Friedrich Nietzsche!) The album, produced by Neil Cartwright, received favourable reviews at home and abroad, in the premier British folk magazine "Folk Roots" and also in "Dirty Linen" published in Maryland, USA and "In Folk Us" in South Australia. Radio Two's Jim Lloyd ("Folk on Two"), writing in "Folk Roots", chose it amongst his Top Ten releases of 1992, and it was even said that the album was being played to passengers flying on Virgin Airlines flights between Britain and the USA!
About this release: For the very first time since 1992, "The thrifty wife & the kite", one of the tracks from the album "Chaos in One" is once more released in digital format. This was made possible by Keith Leech, who wrote the song, and his cousin Patrick Knight (Gravity Noir) who made the 2019 remix as a special tribute to the band Banjax. The EP also includes a special Christmas remix.

Chart topping EDM band Gravity Noir delivers their most diverse project to date, with a mix of disco and 70's funk.
As people age and stressful experiences mount, their psychological problems often increase, manifesting in different ways. Patrick Knight, still the creative brains and spirit behind Gravity Noir, experienced depression after loosing his mum, dad, mother-in-law and several long time friends in just a couple of years. Struggling with heart problems, his ICD pacemaker has saved his life several times during this period. Still searching for the perfect person(s) to get Gravity Noir on the road came without any luck. Patrick said, we struggle with the vision for our lives, for our dreams, for our hopes and for our projects, but found the courage needed to continue writing great music and songs. After the release of their singles "Flying high" and "Hot summer medley" which reached #5 in the TOP 50 LGBTQ Music Chart, July 2019, Gravity Noir releases this fantastic track with a funky 70's feel to it. After hearing these new productions, we definitely are looking forward to the release of their 3th album "Future days" once it's completed. For now get your dancing shoes on and get this party started. Follow us to the "Planet called love". Vocals by the one and only Patrick Knight.
