Milk & Honey

by Cheeky Forty

/
  • Cassette + Digital Album

    The first solo release from the Handpicked roster comes in the form of the long awaited Cheeky Forty full length beat tape, ‘Milk & Honey’, a selection of summer scorchers for you to bump on your boombox on a sunny day in the park.

    Individually dubbed in real time on to 50 x Limited Edition C60 cassette tapes, the release sways through a selection of silky beats - smooth chords are laid over a subtle sample selection, the drums hit hard but this isn’t your typical boom bap beat tape.

    Picking up on the prime elements of jazz, funk and soul, Cheeky Forty’s sound comes through fluently with an essential mix of sickly sweet head nodders.

    Artwork for this release comes from Tash Willcocks, a designer involved in Manchester’s Generic Greeting collective, and features a full typographic zine housed inside the cassette tape sleeve with each song being given it’s own unique space.

    We have also enlisted the foodie skills of Emma Shenton aka Hoe Cakes, who has curated a Milk & Honey Ice Cream recipe with Honey, Cardimom and Pistachios, available as a PDF download and also a physical card copy with each cassette.

    And just to keep you sweet, there’s also a limited bonus package available with our very own Handpicked Honey, so you can get your hands sticky as soon as the tape arrives.
