LV originally linked with Tigran for a special collaboration for a Maida Vale Session for Gilles Peterson’s Radio One show. The guys have always thrived by working with new collaborators and environments. In the past there’s been joint efforts with London poet Josh Idehen and journeys to South Africa for kwaito-infused productions with Johannesburg MCs.
Anyone who heard the Maida Vale session that laid the foundations for the album will know how exciting it was to hear delicate jazz musicality at play with UK-tinged dance rhythms. ‘Jump and Reach’ builds on that potential, with circling piano going toe to toe with rolling drums and stabs of bass. Perfect for Worldwide Festival, where Will from LV will be spinning next week!
Brownswood Recordings is the independent label belonging to the DJ and broadcaster Gilles Peterson.
