Jabu Vinyl, CD & tapes by Jabu at Norman Records
The debut record from Brighton based down tempo R&B artist Jabu. Sleep Heavy is a great addition to a genre of music that is seemingly becoming more and more same sounding. How he combines soothing vocals with ambient drones and rhythmic beats is something more artists should look into doing. Available on vinyl LP and CD on Blackest Ever Black.
O$VMV$M is the self-titled and second instalment from O$VMV$M following on from their previous mini-album. A refreshing and innovative release from the duo has opened up a nice new alternative to the traditional EBM and electronic scene, a further step, of interesting and cleverly crafted sounds. Available on Vinyl LP.
Carving some out with Jabu. Kwiadan is the latest 7 track record from the Bristol fellas. Taking stock from UK & US beat makers and spoken word artists, these tracks are as introspective as they are down tempo. MC Alex Rendall is spilling his mind out over Amos Childs' blunted rhythms. Out on 12" vinyl from RAMP.
