Icarus’ Fly Boy Records have unveiled the debut project from their new signing, Jemu, who delivers some gorgeous beach-focused sonics across his three-track ‘Rayban Funk’ EP.
Pronounced Jem-You, the collection has all the hallmarks of Ibiza sunset-vibes; full of soul yet undoubtedly house, it’s no wonder the youngster calls inspiration from the likes of LTJ Bukem, DJ Premier and Jazzanova.
“For me, the real fun in writing music is coming up with chord progressions and melodies” says Jemu – “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.”
