Westbury Welcomes The Heliocentrics

Westbury Music welcomes The Heliocentrics, a UK based psych-funk collective that since forming in the early 2000’s have built a solid reputation for quite simply outstanding music!

The 8 piece band have come a long way since releasing their debut LP ‘Out There’ in 2007 (Now Again Records). Principally affiliated with the highly regarded imprints Now Again Records (sister label of Stones Throw) and Strut Records, the collective have put out a substantial body of critically acclaimed solo work as well as collaborating with a wide variety of artists including Madlib, Doom, Orlando Julius, DJ Shadow and Melvin Van Peebles – with whom they joined forces on their seventh LP ‘The Last Transmission’.

The band draws influence from a melting pot of different styles: leftfield hip-hop, jazz, psychedelia, funk, afro-beat, soul and are masters of experimentation. Here at Westbury we are most excited to be working with a band that have carved and crafted such a distinct musical voice. Welcome on board!
