Newcomer Jemu (pronounced Jem-You) delivers a remarkable 3-track collection of Soulful House cuts, marking an unforgettable introduction to the Fly Boy Records family.

The EP takes us on a journey through bold low-end, grooving, dusty drum tracks and emotive chord patterns. Through the music we are introduced to hints of Jemu’s inspiration taken from a broad range of styles and artists like LTJ BukemDJ Premier and Jazzanova.

On the EP, Jemu says ‘For me, the real fun in writing music is coming up with chord progressions and melodies; the tempo doesn’t matter as long as the musical elements create the feeling that I’m trying to achieve through the music. I have a real love for Hip Hop, R&B and Soul, so with this EP I’ve been experimenting with sound pallets and chord progressions reminiscent of those styles, but in a slightly different context.’

From the gritty drums of ‘Rayban Funk’, the laid back R&B vocal chops of ‘Trip To You’to the leftfield lead lines of ‘Unfold’, this debut EP from Jemu is a flawless blend of lo-fi, soulful soundscapes.
