Back in 1992 Sunscreem signed a major record deal after only 6 shows and the accolades started pouring in: MixMag Award for Best Newcomer, NME Favourite College Band, even Best Scottish Dance Act (not bad for a band from Essex!).
The single 'Love U More' hit number one in all three UK Dance Charts soon afterwards, a success that was repeated in the US Billboard dance chart.
'Perfect Motion' with its infectious hook sealed their place in dance music history. With no support from national Radio One, the sheer strength of club and specialty radio play catapulted the single into the UK Top 20.
Since then Sunscreem have released 5 albums and over 200 tracks and remixes. Their singles have consistently charted around the world and they have played over 500 shows to hundreds of thousands of people.

Music On Vinyl will issue Tanita Tikaram‘s 1988 album Ancient Heart as a special coloured vinyl 30th anniversary edition in December.
The album was a huge success in the UK and Germany in particular and spawned four singles: Good Tradition, Twist in My Sobriety, Cathedral Song and World Outside Your Window.
This new vinyl edition is a numbered CLEAR vinyl pressing and limited to just 1500 copies worldwide. It’s a gatefold package and features an insert with a new note from Tanita.
At the same time, a modest 30th anniversary expanded CD will be issued with two bonus tracks: ‘Friends’ and ‘I Love The Heaven’s Solo’. The former was the B-side to ‘Twist in My Sobriety’ while the later is likely to be the demo/acoustic version that was the B-side to the the ‘Little Sister Leaving Town’ (a single from the second album). This track could well date from the Ancient Heart era, despite not having been released during that period.
