this debut album is in the best tradition of forward-thinking Bristol music, featuring broken-hearted, downtempo R&B/street-soul and supremely atmospheric, introspective electronics that both haunts and consoles.

the sound design is grounded in hip-hop but floating free - subtly psychedelic and heavily dubwise. Stitched together from deep-dug and beautifully repurposed samples, it draws on influences from US R&B to Japanese art-pop, UK soul to library music. Jabu’s orchestration of womb-like ambiences, cold synth tones and brittle beats provide the perfect setting for imploring, temptationsesque vocals. Oceanic is the word: this is music to drown in, greatfully.
