Sometime in the early 21st century, deep in the leafy suburbs of downtown Southampton, a mild-mannered part-time shop assistant and unassuming sandwich delivery-boy were hatching a plan to rescue quality soulful music from almost certain oblivion.

Ross Wakefield and Toby Vane harnessed their shared influences, ranging from Public Enemy and Joe Cocker to Elbow and Nick Drake, and began to create their own unique supersonic sound. They invited selected friends and musicians to bring more of a live element to their recordings, including newcomers Jono McCleery (Music Week’s ‘Best Unsigned Act of 2005’), Lucy Kitchen, Bridgette Amofah (Oi Va Voi), Pete Simpson (Elektrons), BBC Jazz Award winner and Ronnie Scotts’ fave Liane Carroll (London Elektricity) and Laura Vane (MJ Cole, Hardkandy).

Having turned out well received remixes for a plethora of artists, including Wallis Bird and N’Dambi, and having delivered some more dancefloor focused cuts (under their PTH Projects guise) for Wah Wah 45s, the time had now come to unleash the debut LP “Meanwhile”.

The Part Time Heroes’ sound has often been compared to scene-defining stalwarts like Koop, Zero 7 and Portishead, and “Meanwhile.” continues that legacy, pushing forward with a uniquely refreshing, wholesome and honest style, complete with live instrumentation, deep jazz roots, folky flourishes and organic, soul nourishing goodness.

“I highly rate them, watch out for them.” – Gilles Peterson

“The duo may have to change the part-time to full-time.” 4/5 – DJ Magazine

“A summery blast of addictive dance floor funk.” – IDJ Magazine
