We spoke to the enigmatic and intriguing artist Alxndr London as he returns with new EP 2023.
Violet Stars Happy Hunting – Janelle Monáe
Heard this song 10 years ago and immediately wanted to be Janelle’s bestie. There’s this gritty steam punky futuristic rebel attitude feel.
Jai Paul – BTSU
I didn’t know kids from London were at liberty to do this. I absolutely felt like the doors allowed to make songs like this. I remember playing this to me in like 2013/2014 and my heart skipped a beat.
Amy Winehouse – My Bed (Bugz In The Attic Remix)
Again I thought jazz and soul in London could only look a certain way till homegirl introduced the idea that hip hop and reggae could be interjected to create a unique entity of its own.
Jazztronik – Samurai
I sweated to this tune on many a dance floor. Something about garage and the broken beat sound merging with jazz and the keys have never left my head.
Aaliyah – Are You That Somebody
The Missy-Timbaland-Aaliyah triangle has always encouraged me to delve deeper, explore, experiment and discover new what’s to express my sound. What these lots achieved is golden to me.
