Sinkin' 06:18
Fire your arrow heat to my marrow light on my shadow warm me to supple soft as you like soft as you like in your arms I am light gentle as a boy not met the world All sun and joy All sun and joy All sun and joy Sinkin’ in to skin Hold on to that feelin’ Closed eyes shimmerin’ red Breeze flows through our body Softest sight and sound when you say lay me down, I’m a lay Disarm and coddle me calm, a cloud of comfort cradle my head the crook of your arm bare the weight of my dread A chrysalis for the ages, there through all your faces and saw me the same you really know my name Colour vary by the gradient, arch back you’re burnt amber Relaxed you’re all blue I’m here for every hue Glisten my skin, all feather 'gainst my leather I see your shape and sink in

"So expertly put together; just layer, upon layer, upon layer" - Anne Frankenstein, Jazz FM

“Chiminyo is one of the real hidden forces in UK jazz.” - CLASH Magazine

"Another absolute brilliant album" - Gilles Peterson

The long-awaited debut album by percussionist and producer Chiminyo is finally here. 'I Am Panda' weaves together a warm, enveloping tapestry of euphoric melodies, acoustic beats, and brain-burrowing bass lines, all originating from the hit of a drum. Via laboriously self-coded software, every cymbal crash and drum hit triggers a synth or sample, allowing Chiminyo complete control and creating a distinct sonic world like no other. Each track is different in tone and texture, with varying featured artists including K.O.G., Brother Portrait of Steam Down fame, and Eastern-European folk singer Dunja Botic.

The new album follows on from Chiminyo's 2019 debut EP "I Am Chiminyo", which served as a visceral introduction to his unique sound, and earned plaudits from the likes of Gilles Peterson, BBC 1Xtra, CLASH, Red Bull, Jazzwise, Jazz FM and more. As well as his own solo project, Chiminyo also performs and records with some of the leading figures of London’s music scene, including spiritual jazz-leaning outfit Maisha and psychedelic energy bomb Cykada. He has also previously collaborated and recorded with Gary Bartz, Nubya Garcia, Shabaka Hutchings, Theon Cross, and Zara McFarlane.

北ロンドンのドラマー/パーカッショニスト/プロデューサー、ティム・ドイルによるプロジェクト、チミニョはその独創的なサウンドからどの音楽部類にも属さない。彼のハイテクな ドラムキットと生のパーカッション、そして未来的なエレクトロ・プロダクションによる音色が入り混ざった大胆不敵な世界観は話題となり、2019年にリリースしたデビューEP『アイ・アム・ チミニョ』はジャイルス・ピーターソンやBBC 1(TV)、ジャズFMなどから高評価を得た。さらに、ジャズFMデジタル・アワードやワールドワイドFMアワード 2020にもノミネートされ た。

ソロ・プロジェクトとしての活動の他にもチミニョはロンドンの音楽シーンをリードする数々のアーティストとのパフォーマンスやレコーディング経験がある。その中には、女性版カマシ・ワシントンとも評されるサックス奏者ヌビア・ガルシアを中心とした6人組バンド、マイシャや、人気プレーヤーたちが集結したジャズ・コレクティヴ、シカーダなどがあげられる。他にもゲイリー・バーツ、ヌビア・ガルシア、シャバカ・ハッチングス、テオン・クロス、そし てザラ・マクファーレンらとのコラボレーションやレコーディング経験を持つ。

そんな彼の待望のデビュー・アルバムは自身によって制作/アレンジされ、リカルド・デミアン(ジョルジャ・スミス、サンファ、ビンカー・アンド・モーゼス、エズラ・コレクティヴ)によってレコーディングされた。マルチ・インストゥルメンタリストのクウェク・サッキー(aka K.O.G)、アテネのフォーク・シ ンガー、ドゥニャ・ボチック、そして話題のアーティスト集団スチーム・ダウンのブラザー・ポートレイトらがゲスト参加している。
