"The Long Game will take you in its jaws and spit you back out with a new-found sense of unbridled rebellion! This is a feral machine that soothes, caresses, snaps and growls to bring you into the belly of the world of Slamboree and showcases, much like the stage show, the different characters and stories that share their manifesto with a punch of bass."
Review: Slamboree, The Long Game
From Lancaster Guardian, Wednesday 28th June 2018
It’s been a long time coming.
But good things come together eventually and Slamboree’s debut album The Long Game has been well worth the wait.
Fronted by former Morecambe man Mike Freear and featuring a huge cast of musicians and actors, the band’s 14 track album has been released on its own label Slam Inc and is packed full of beats, breaks, big drums, strings, samples, soaring vocals and some serious swagger.
It takes a journey through electronic music with styles ranging from drum n’ bass, hip hop, house, glitch, electro-swing and techno via the wider genres of soul, reggae, Balkan, punk and good old rock n’ roll.
Guest appearances come from long time collaborator Beans on Toast, and John Fairhurst, Gramski, Too Many Ts and Martha Cecilia, adding extra layers to a collection of songs already teeming with diversity.
Check out the poetry on Reasons Why I Dance and New Quest, hunt for the subtle Prodigy sample – and anyone that combines lyrics from the classic Christmas film The Snowman, with nifty drumming and Gypsy swing weaving around it has got my vote.
Turbo Folk is just mental, and My Game My Rules featuring the Rev Captain Liability Eden is a Baz Luhrmannesque focus on life’s positives.
Funky vocal led drum n’ bass track Inspire has been released as the first single off the album. It’s a hugely accomplished collection of songs, with plenty of musical meat on the electronic bones.
Sometimes “electronica” albums can feel a little flat, but you can tell care has been taken over the production on this one, and anyone who has been to see Slamboree live since they formed in 2011 will feel that energy flowing through The Long Game.
The album is available from www.slamboree.com, on Spotify, and other streaming services.
Slamboree are playing a string of festival dates over the summer, including Weinturm Open Air in Nuremberg on August 3, Boomtown on August 10, Sunrise Festival on August 17, and Solfest in Cumbria on August 24.

"Slamboree spits forth a bolshy track that takes the stand for big girls (or boys) and even bigger personalities in this bouncy hat-tip to old skool rave with more than a sprinkle of Salt'N'Pepa attitude. This tune fills the room with serious and unabashed junk in its trunk and from the opening bars you won't be able to do anything but move your body with pride."
Also to celebrate our recent appearance at our favourite festival, we proudly present Our official anthem of Boomtown Fair, given a slick new revamp for this year!

New Big Love remix collection
Our new Big Love remix collection is available right here, right now!
Yes, our favourite single Big Love has been remixed by Wes Smith, by Hybrid Theory, and we've even thrown in our own extended VIP club mix.
"It’s records like this that keep us going during these colder times. The lords of lunacy, Slamboree (recently branded by the BBC as the “Worlds greatest festival band”) are finally following up their amazing album with some DJ friendly edits for 2019. This fresh spin on Big Love from Wes Smith proves again that he is far more than a fine set of sideburns. Riddled with tight drum breaks, 808 bass and only the biggest carnival vibes; this booty shaking festival anthem will telepathically transport directly to Shangri La" DJMag - 8/10
