Always prepared to step sideways, James Lavelle / UNKLE first ventured into the orchestral domain with the Heritage Orchestra for large-scale shows at Somerset House and the Union Chapel. The successful collaboration subsequently led to a release on Surrender All called Variation on a Theme.  The production was filled with UNKLE classics from the past and present, featuring guest singers Joel Cadbury, Gavin Clark, Elle J, with installation artwork by Warren du Preez and Nick Thornton Jones.

James Lavelle’s production outfit have five studio albums under their belt and a list of big-name collaborators including DJ Shadow, Thom Yorke, Josh Homme, and more recently Mark Lanegan, Nick cave and Lupe Fiasco.
