Statik Sound System
A Cup of Tea Records act with the G-stoned production vibes that constitute a virtual prerequisite for entry on the label, Statik Sound System is basically the duo of Pete Webb and Roger Mills, though their session worksheets often include producer Andy Jenks (also of Alpha), reed player Rob Conn and percussionist Giles, plus vocalists Helen White and Kenny Lee Lewis (the former another Alpha associate). Statik began recording for Cup of Tea in late 1995 with the "Revolutionary Pilot" single. After several additional EP releases, the pair gained several good reviews, though centered more in the British rock weeklies than the dance press. One year later, Statik Sound System released their debut album Tempesta. Later that year came Tempesta: The Reworkings, with help from Kid Loops, Cut la Roc, Mr. Scruff, Flynn & Flora. Signed to Iron America for stateside distribution, the group released the quasi-compilation Tempesta II as their first American release. ~ John Bush, Rovi
