“Junk (Euphoric Mixes)” is the latest EP from Andy Whitmore, released worldwide to all major streaming services on October 13, 2021.

It’s a beautiful and warm recording of some really stellar performances.
Composed by Andy Whitmore and John Isle, the opening track “Meth” rides on a slow Blues groove. Each player takes a turn in the spotlight with killer guitar, sax, keys and bass solos. The band takes us on a Jazz/Pop trip through the decades on “Pedal,” mixing 60’s keys with 70’s horns and 80’s guitar. They follow with the mellow Funk of “Mr. Cool,” featuring a nice extended electric piano jam. The closer “BB” is a slow Blues with a healthy dose of psychedelia.
To coincide with the release of the EP, Andy Whitmore and crew have produced a live, in-studio video of the opening track “Meth.” The flick features the band performing the track in real time. It’s a beautifully shot video showcasing a world-class studio and the expert musicianship of Lauren Breen (sax), Andy Whitmore (keys), John Isle (guitar), Martin Young (bass) and Gabor Dornyei (drums).
