The Link Quartet formed way back in 1993, and over the years have built a worldwide reputation and have become a most distinguished band related to the Hammond organ sound.

Italy based, The Link Quartet have produced a unique mix of Funk, Beat, Rock and Soul, strongly tied to the glorious bands of the past, but fully looking forward towards the future for a modern unmistakable touch. The band have consistently worked hard in the studio, and have released ten studio albums, several singles and EP’s, and appeared on some heavy weight compilations throughout the last two decades, working with labels such as Acid Jazz, Record Kicks, Hammond Beat, Sony, Soundflat and many more.

On the live side, the band have performed almost all over the world, sharing the stage with artists such as Brian Auger, The Music Machine, Manu Chao, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Charles Bradley, Big Boss Man and more, and have also performed at various festivals globally.

In November 2018 the band decided on the idea to release a live album recorded in the studio, during a three-day event. The event took place at Tanzan Music Studio, which resulted in the ‘Secret Sessions’ live studio album, containing all the best tracks of the Italian combo, performed live and recorded as never before. The album was released in 2019 on Spinout Nuggets.

The band followed up with the ‘The Saint-Tropez Heist’ 7” single in 2021.

The Link Quartet are now back in action with a new twin-spin single. With respect to two characters in Piacenza, firstly ‘Green Puma’ gives respect to an old hi-fi technician, who works from his apartment, welcoming you with white overalls that makes him look like a technician from 60s Cape Canaveral. ‘Tropical Dandy’ refers to a cultural organizer, who is always dressed to impress!

Limited to 500 copies on vinyl, this will be available via the label, the artist and all good record outlets, whilst stocks last.
