Kamaal Williams
New Heights / Snitches Brew

New EP from our big broken-beat jazz talent Kamaal Williams. After his success with Yussef Kamaal, producer Henry Wu delivers a follow-up to this year’s the Return. Snitches Brew boasts some genre-defying shredding from virtuoso Mansur Brown, whereas New Heights promises to be more of a spaced-out hiphop affair. Limited supply: buy now or face eternal regret.

Mansur Brown
Shiroi

The Black Focus story grows ever more intertwined with Mansur Brown’s Shiroi. Brown contributed heavily to Yussef Kamaal’s acclaimed 2016 LP Black Focus. Earlier this year Kamaal Williams - one half of YK - set up a label of the same name as a home for his album The Return. Now Brown has become Williams’ first signing to the imprint. The virtuoso guitarist impresses across the eleven tracks of his debut record, marrying cascading licks with sloping neo-soul instrumentals.

Kamaal Williams
The Return

Yussef Kamaal may have disbanded, but Henry Wu continues to fly the flag as Kamaal Williams. For the first LP released under his given name we see Williams behind the keys in a jazz fusion trio that brings together the visionary aesthetic of the YK output with the sounds of new London jazz and the shuffling grooves of the Wu project. Out via the new Black Focus records, a label named after YK’s sole full-length.
