Destroying genre boundaries circa 2009, Leeds’ Submotion Orchestra are set to unveil their next release, a unique cover of Robin S’ 1993 global hit ‘Show Me Love.’ After adding their signature stamp to the dance anthem, it will land via their own imprint SMO Recordings on the 13th December 2019.

With 5 albums and 3 EPs under their belt, the 7-piece haven’t taken their foot off the gas since the get-go. Delving deep into jazz, dub, electronica and soul, their soothing, euphoric sound has won over some of the biggest names in the business; New York Times, Mixmag, Clash, The Times and The Observer to name a few, not to mention being championed by Mistajam, Trevor Nelson, Pete Tong, Don Letts and Lauren Laverne. Their impeccable production and astounding atmospherics have taken them everywhere from Bestival to Glastonbury, and ‘Show Me Love’ is no exception. On producing the track, they added:

Show Me Love’ was an absolute anthem when we were kids and we thought it would be a fun tune to cover. We also thought it would work really well with Ruby’s vocal ‘cos it has that blend of hope and melancholy that we love.

Featuring delicate percussive patterns, delayed synths and a steady rhythm throughout, their take on ‘Show Me Love’ is completely different to what you’ll have heard in the past. With smooth jazz horn lines, calming melodies and an all-round uplifting feel, the foundations are laid down beautifully for Ruby Wood to sing those iconic lyrics over the top. Fuelled with emotion and overflowing with soul, this one makes you want to get up and move whilst also being completely zen at the same time, a trait that the band have mastered over the last decade.

As well as being renowned for their exceptional studio work, Submotion Orchestra are able to replicate their productions live to a staggering effect. In fact, since their cult-classic debut release ‘Finest Hour’ their tours have spanned all over the UK and Europe, not to mention headlining the 6,000 capacity Pula Amphitheatre at Outlook Festival, selling out the Barbican Theatre and The Forum for London’s Jazz Festival and even headlining the Royal Albert Hall.

Here’s to another 10 years.
