"A startingly inventive percussive workout"
This three-track EP is an epic introduction to the one-man band that is Chiminyo. A skilled drummer and percussionist, Chiminyo is a vital part of the London music scene as a member of Maisha, Don Kipper and Cykada.
I Am Chiminyo is a departure from the jazz territory and an introduction to his electronic solo project. Each track is performed on live drums, which then trigger synth sounds - no loops or backing tracks. Evocative of drum and bass legends such as LTJ Bukem and echoing the likes of Squarepusher and DJ Shadow, this is the ultimate definition of Chiminyo's sound and style.
The groove is so strong with these guys, all of them sound spectacular (!the drums!) & everything flows so smoothly throughout the whole record. Keeps me dancing the whole time. Def a masterpiece! Sergio Perezalonso
Wow. Who knew the tuba was such a formidable and vital instrument? Theon, along with the likes of Daniel Herskedal, is reinventing our whole perception of this versatile brass stalwart. Whether booming out the bass lines with Sons of Kemet or channelling the melodies with such lyrical precision on this album, Theon is a wholly formable player - and this is such a great album too; well worthy of the lofty praise afforded it since its release a few weeks back. albo
