Oscar Jerome has shared his scorching new single 'Gravitate' - tune in now.
The songwriter is a key aspect of the conversation between club culture and jazz in London, throwing in his soulful voice for good measure.
New single 'Gravitate' was co-written alongside Ben Hauke, and it's a homage to the sheer creative fluidity of the broken beat scene.
Also feature Ezra Collective's Joe Armon-Jones on keys and members of KOKOROKO, it follows a recent run of dates with Kamasi Washington.
A supreme jazz-leaning slice of dancefloor anarchy, it's held together by Oscar's fantastic vocal. He comments:
“This pays homage to a lot of the pioneers of the British broken beats genre as well as a lot of my soul, jazz and rock influences. The subject matter is both cosmic and personal. I reference a lot of imagery of the early life of a star in space as well as ideas of individuality and self-acceptance.” Tune in now.
Catch Oscar Jerome on tour this Autumn, including a headline show at London's Heaven venue on November 19th.
