Released: 5th Oct 2018


Moments of blissful, structured intensity are juxtaposed with stillness and near silence on this hugely accomplished and handsomely produced jazz-soul debut from the London multi-instrumentalist.

The album is both spacious and thought-provoking, energetic yet restrained, brimming with nuanced electronic instrumentals, dubby synths, and jazz breaks — creating an array of rich textures, complemented occasionally by James’ own soulful vocals. James’ rich musical influences are laced through the release. Central to the album is the idea of space. James recalls the early advice of his uncle, a jazz guitarist, who features on “Uncle Blue”:“I remember him saying to me: "What goes in comes out” James says. “Every detail should be a worthy detail; sometimes nothing is better than something.” Check this out if you like sasha, floating points or garden city movement.
