The Young Echo affiliates will release a seven-track EP in July.
Amos Childs and Alex Rendall are part of the small coterie of Bristol-based artists operating under the Young Echo umbrella. As Jabu they make downtempo, hip-hop-inspired beats, with Childs on production duties and Rendall MCing. (In a Playing Favourites feature with RA last year, Rendall cited 2004's Madvillainy as a particular source of inspiration.)
The duo contributed a track called "Slow Jam" to last year's Young Echo album, Nexus, and they've also put out cassettes on Astro:Dynamics and Bristol label No Corner. Kwaidan, however, marks their first full physical release. It'll land on July 21st on vinyl and digital formats. To get a taste of what to expect, stream "Chamber" below:
03. Don’t Fall Down
04. Untitled #2
05. Empty Days
Ramp Recordings will release Kwaidan on July 21st, 2014.
