Ishmael is a multi-instrumentalist & producer from Bristol, UK. His DJ sets & live shows alongside the Ishmael Ensemble, explore jazz & experimental electronic music.
Ishmael started releasing jazzy house cuts on Wolf Music before stepping out of the box with the release of his debut album "Sometime In Space" in 2016. The record is an exploration of dusty soundscapes & off-kilter house which Ishmael then developed into a Live A/V show with visual artist Amie Nowlan, watch their Boiler Room performance here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FC17mV3hqAw ...
