They promised ‘Only Heaven’ was the first of new “material of various types” to come and true to their word Coldcut have announced an EP of the same name. Previewed by the Roses Gabor featuring ‘Donald’s Wig’ the five track release will be out on November 25th, by which time we should know if the wig is in the White House.
The physical release is available for pre-order and will come in an oversized ‘tabloid’ reverse board sleeve and newspaper insert featuring bespoke artwork by celebrated multimedia artist Kim Rugg.
The ‘Only Heaven’ EP arrives on November the 25th and Roots Manuva features on three of the tracks:
1. Only Heaven feat. Roots Manuva
3. Dreamboats feat. Roots Manuva and Roses Gabor
4. Donald’s Wig feat. Roses Gabor
5. Quality Control feat. Roots Manuva
The cover art also forms the basis of an interactive meme player that can be shared to encourage engagement on positive political causes like ‘Stop Funding Hate’ – who are taking on the tabloids for hate stories against immigrants, women and marginalised communities.

Jon More from Coldcut has also “lovingly selected some influences from their time and formative years” for online mag, Ransom Note, along with an incredible 168 song YouTube playlist of Funk influences.
