ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A Symbol & A Sound is the debut album by the Unity Gain Theory, a collective of souls in collaboration with producer Bryn Griffiths.

A dazzling musical journey, Griffiths crosses jazz, funk, electronica and hip-hop. Through soulful spoken word, sultry singing and conscious rap the tracks are infused with the individuality of the talented vocalists.

More or Les, Allonymous, Lyric L, Sophie Faricy, Juice Aleem & HKB Finn collectively personify what the Unity Gain Theory is all about, life, passion & soul. The result is difficult to categorize evoking the sounds of a jazz club house band jamming on open mic night.
Hints of Griffiths influences- Gil Scott Herron, Tribe Called Quest, 4Hero, Roy Ayres - are subtly discernible.

For this project, Griffiths conspired with Wayne Lotek, the gifted producer behind Lotek Hifi and Roots Manuva amongst others.
Initial composition was laptop based. The addition of live instruments blends effortlessly to deliver a distinctive authentic sound.

A Symbol & A Sound is a fine album. A true original with mass appeal, it possesses a depth and beauty rarely heard in the hard-edged modern world.

Simon Harrison

top quality and a great selection of styles....
Bryn Griffiths is the producer behind Unity Gain Theory with partner in crime Wayne Lotek, who you may remember for his work with Roots Manuva. Of course the production is exactly what you would expect from these guys: top quality and a great selection of styles around hip-hop and down-tempo beats. My favourite tracks feature Sophie Faricy on vocals, whether it's the lovely spoken word "Careless Talk", "Careless" or the duo with Juice Aleem on "Grown Up". Other vocalists include Allonymous, HKB Finn and Lyric L. whose tracks grow on you with every play. The instrumental tracks and snips make this the complete package.

'A Symbol & A Sound' is an album of greatness...
Some great albums are full of songs where you feel you would buy each song individually if it was released as a single, think of 'Sgt Pepper', 'what's the story (morning glory)' or even 'Bad' (if you are into that kind of thing).

On the other hand some great albums don't have a single standout track but the album as a whole takes you on a journey that lets you know you are listening to greatness, think of 'OK Computer', 'Betty Blue' or 'K' by Kula Shaker.
'A Symbol & A Sound' is an album of greatness which manages to combine both of these experiences, there are a great many tracks that make you think 'as a single this would sell fantastically' whilst at the same time the album as a whole has it's own vibe, it's own atmosphere that transports you to another place, and when it finishes playing you know you have heard something touched by greatness and you want to go back and experience it all again. It effortlessly blends so many musical tastes and styles that it can be highly recommended to anybody who is simply a fan of good music.
