J Appiah Steals The Show With Solo Cut ‘Chains’

It's a bold electronic feast...

J Appiah is a name to remember.

He's already featured on work by some stellar artists, collaborating with the likes of Footsie, Damian Lazarus, and Michael Kiwanuka.

New track 'Chains' though, finds J Appiah moving directly into his own lane.

Production comes from Ruckspin, who weaves an elegant electronic tapestry, and the foundation of the track seems to suggest infinite space with which to move in.

It's a bold offering, with J Appiah's superb voice bringing together his highly distinct tastes and passions into one organic, unique whole.

Released on vital tastemarker imprint 19fifty7, 'Chains' is the sound of someone claiming his freedom.

The start of something quite remarkable, you can check out 'Chains' below.
