The Winachi Tribe have lifted a second single from their ‘Time for Love’ EP. ‘Plant the Seed’ will be released on September 25th on A1M records. The track sees the band collaborating with Julie E Gordon of Happy Mondays. The Winachi Tribe is a collection of exceptional musicians and producers who have performed and toured with artists as diverse as Ian Brown, Black Grape, Happy Mondays, Massive Attack and The Stereo MCs. They bring together urban swagger, soul and funk to create unique electro-funk grooves; a sonic soul collective who are unrestrained by boundaries or formulas, either musically or culturally.
New single ‘Plant the Seed’ is featured in a new documentary ‘We Own the Dance Floor’, which tells the story of the Hacienda and was premiered at this year’s Glastonbury Festival. The band will be embarking on a UK tour in October and in the meantime are set to play to the Portsmouth’s Victorious Festival on 29th August alongside Basement Jaxx, Tinie Tempah & The Flaming Lips. The ‘Time For Love’ EP will be launched at Manchester’s Ruby Lounge on 27th August, with special guests, Tigerside, Ruby Tuesday & the Happy Fallen.
