Stylin' Feature Image

This week's show features an interview with Junior Alli-Balogun, percussionist to Theo Parrish, Floating Points, Pharrell and Chance the Rapper. Junior has recently turned artist/producer as JAB, and he's about much more than just percussion. We talk about and preview his forthcoming EP 'Currents'. JAB is the sound of someone with an intuitive understanding of how jazz moves the body and soul, and how house moves the body and soul, and who then makes music expressing those feelings organically, without it being 'jazz house'.
