The Supersense palace is always good for a surprise: where else can you drink a cup of coffee next to a real star like it's the most natural thing in the world?! When this star then visits our Living Room Recording Studio to engrave a few songs direct to disc and reel-to-reel tape, no eyes stays dry. This is what happened in 2016 at our Palazzo: at the invitation of Universal Music Austria, Grammy winner Gregory Porter visited SUPERSENSE to record a few songs.
"We are doing a live recording straight to vinyl and tape - there is no editing, no fixing, no auto tune, it's just me, the needle and the music. It's exciting, and the reason I prefer this is the humanity to it - there are cracks and wrinkles, which makes it valuable, daring and vulnerable. And all of that comes across in the recording." - Gregory Porter
We passionately created a super limited edition of unique hand-cut Mastercut Records from this very special tape. Adding hand printed sleeve artwork, analog instant photography and many other analogue treasures to the dazzling voice of Gregory.
