Azekel's talent simply can't be denied.
After all, even Prince was a fan of the East London vocalist, and the Purple One knew a thing or two about mind-expanding soul music.
Recently working with Massive Attack and Gorillaz, the vocalist is pursuing a solitary, completely unique path.
Set to release his long-awaited debut album next year, Azekel has opted to unveil the record in a series of chapters, telling his story as the narrative progresses.
Chapter One deals with family, with responsibility, and with parenthood; 'Don't Wake The Babies' is as tender as they come, a piece of gossamer R&B that carries a slight jazz influence.
He explains: "'Don't Wake The Babies' is part of the first chapter of my album - (family), where I let loose on my thoughts and experiences being a young family man."
Intelligent, engrossing soul music with a defiantly modern feeling, 'Don't Wake The Babies' is the work of a truly individual voice, one that could dominate 2018.
