SePtember 1200 is a 12-track instrumental album inspired by Preservation’s sharing of the same birth date – September 12th – as the one and only Barry White. The concept of the album is based on material sourced from the maestro’s discography and produced solely on the 10-second sampling time of the classic drum machine, the SP-1200. The result is an outstanding 30-minute presentation of Preservation’s approach to constructing albums with a deeply personal touch that takes the listener on a journey of styles and moods.
