‘Album of the Day’ BBC 6 Music

Skinny Pelembe’s cool afro psychedelic soul music has been tipped by The Observer and featured on BBC 6 Music’s A list and Channel 4.  Debut album ‘Dreaming is Dead’ was released on Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label in May 2019 and was named 6 Music’s ‘Album of the Day’.  He’s played live with Unkle and Maribou State, and Bonobo featured him on a BBC Radio 1 mix.

The multi-talented wonder first came on the scene in 2017. He’s always on the hunt for his next sample and creates unwaveringly cool psychedelic soul. Weaving his influences together into tracks like No Blacks, No Dogs, No Irish, his sound is super free and experimental.

 

History

Releasing debut album “Dreaming Is Dead Now” in May 2019, he’s been tipped by The Observer, The Quietus and Huck. Singles “I Just Wanna Be Your Prisoner” and “Spit / Swallow” were both picked for BBC 6 Music’s A-List. He’s guested with Lauren Laverne, Mary Ann Hobbs and Tom Ravenscroft on 6 Music, with Jamz Supernova on BBC 1Xtra, and recorded live sessions for The Vinyl Factory and Worldwide FM. He sold out a headline UK tour last year, was booked for 6 Music’s 2018 showcase at The Great Escape, and has supported Nightmares on Wax and Maribou State.

 

Reviews

“An absolute one-off, his music flitting between hip-hop, spoken word, drum ‘n’ bass, and jazz.” – Clash Music
