Perhaps the greatest talent to have emerged in 2018 so far, Jonny Dee is quietly setting fire to people’s minds with his psychedelic soul hip-hop hybrid, as exciting a prospect as when Tribe Called Quest first burst onto the scene and ripped up the rule book. The combination of Jonny’s ultra-laid-back vox, fluid guitar-playing and increasingly trippy atmospherics make for a genuinely thrilling experience, one which is all the more remarkable considering it’s his first full-length release.
His latest release, Feedback, shows a darker side to his music, with an incessant beat matched by Jonny’s effortlessly smooth rap. This is LEAGUES ahead of so much out there, not just in hip-hop but the music world at large. That good. Seriously.
