Watermelon Man / Illusion

Here we have a 7” featuring two tracks from the forthcoming Blue Note: Reimagined album on which modern artists take on jazz classics. Side one sees the intoxicating vocals of Poppy Ajudah adorn her version of Herbie Hancock’s Watermelon Man whilst on side two we have South African indie kid Skinny Pelembe reinterpreting Illusion, originally by American pianist Andrew Hill.

Skinny Pelembe
Dreaming Is Dead Now

Skinny Pelembe’s debut album, Dreaming Is Dead, mixes dub, hip-hop, sun-drenched folk and blissed-out soul. Giles Peterson has championed the Johannesburg-born, Doncaster-raised artist. James Lavelle and Ghostpoet have also been singing his praises. The album was produced by Malcolm Catto of Heliocentrics. If you like Massive Attack, this is probably for you. LP and CD on Brownswood Recording.
