Featuring the best of Tru Thoughts’ recent releases, remixes and collaborations, this compilation highlights their eclectic roster, celebrating the label’s rising stars, as well as some rare hidden gems from the catalogue.

After 19 years of independently releasing music, the ‘Shapes’ compilation series continues to encompass the best of the Brighton-based label’s eclectic and international roster. Repping Tru Thoughts’ new rising stars from across the pond, there are key tracks from LA soul trio Moonchild, the orchestral jazz/ hip-hop phenomenon that is Sly5thAve’s tribute to Dr. Dre, as well as newer additions to the label such as the lo-fi, North African inspired beats and melodies of Te’Amir. Closer to home, the album sees studio versions and remixes from the likes of Uniting Of Opposites, Flowdan, Nonames and rising star Rhi. “As a DJ you can’t ignore it when a package comes from Tru Thoughts... brilliant stuff” - Gilles Peterson.
