New single and second song to be taken from the upcoming album Nobody Else is an infectious house hit and a track that sums up The S.L.P.'s breezy, rulebook-out spirit of exploration. 

Speaking of the track Serge said: 

"I started to learn jazz chords, it's so important, that innocence of just exploring and experimenting, when you've got that little part of you going 'can I get away with that?' 


Recorded and produced by Serge at his Leicester studio The Sergery The S.L.P. is an eleven track trip across hip-hop influence, richly melodic moments, psychedelic-funk, new-wave and euphoric scenes. 

Following on from Favourites and Nobody Else are other album highlights including Meanwhile... At The Welcome Break a collaboration with man of the moment slowthai, the euphoric Trance, and psychedelic funk outs The Wu and Youngest Gary. 

 
Serge says of the project: 

"Moving forward, I'd like to collaborate more and open that door more. 

"The S.L.P. project will become this sort of place I can go and just do whatever. It's so important to have that. 

"My life in the band and my boys, that's part of me that will be there forever, but then there's something else I have to get that out or I won't be able to move forward."

Serge takes The S.L.P. out on its first run of dates this September. Tickets go on sale Friday 28th June at 9 30am. Ticket link can be found here.
