In 2020 I came to recognise even more that the only certainty in life is change and that relationships with family and friends are incredibly important, and must be nurtured. I’ve also come to more deeply appreciate my ability to create as an artist and have been really energised with the recent collaborations I have been a part of, some coming about because creatives have especially wanted to reach out during these testing times. For me 2021 will be a year where I will extend those collaborations and share my artistry as I delve into new ways of connecting with fans, friends and loved ones particularly with the possibility of lockdown continuing for an extended period of time.
This EP is an inspiring coupling of songs that I hope will lift your spirits for the start of a new year.
Like so many others, this came like a bolt out of the blue and, even though it's well before payday, I had to have this astonishing album on vinyl to prove it exists. The feel of the tunes makes me feel like the Impressions do, Curtis Mayfield, the big spaces and instinctive horns and stuff drifting in and out. Great grooves and I can see lots of ghosts nodding along to this with big smiles on their faces. At last! Anthony Cottrell
This has become one of the most important albums of my life. It’s essence is indescribable. Every sound from the start of the record through the end is placed delicately and with care. The album cover is by Julie Mehretu. It’s absolutely an incredible release for which I shall be eternally grateful. Aniket
