The follow up to SAQ’s ‘Kali Yuga/Do You Love Me Too’, which received rave reviews by all discerning nu jazz playaz. ‘The London EP’ fuses sounds past and present into some kind of twisted future groove where styles collide and broken beats rule. This EP has already been getting major plays around the globe and if ‘futuristic broken beat jazz soul’ is your thing, then you’ll love this release.

THE LONDON EP is a love letter to, well… London, baby! Fusing sounds past and present into some kind of twisted future groove where the skylines shine on monorails and satellites as tribes and styles collide and beat broken hearts search for lost love in Soho by night…

Berwick St. Mode – naming tracks after London streets was all the rage on those late 6ixties library music albums by the likes of Alan Hawkshaw and Keith Mansfield… This street’s got all you need for the modern beat and boho lifestyle… bespoke suits, fabrics, jewellery, the famous fruit and veg market, Italian and veggie caffs, sex, drugs, booze and music, music, music!!! It’s also to commemorate s.a.q’s Richard E once queuing behind Julie Christie buying a bottle of wine in Somerfields. It’s a Sixties meets Naughties future funk mash-up with an incredible ba-ba-ba vocal sample from Richard’s crate of “special stuff". Until now only heard in demo form by four djs who all immediately saw its potential. Kleopatra J overheard Richard playing it to dj Oh!Po-Lo at the record shop he works in on… no lie… Berwick St! She requested a copy there and then to play on her radio show “Black Fluid" in Milan… “It’s got the funk!" she say.

The London EP gained support from Gilles Peterson, Rainer Truby, Quantic, Kid Loco, Nik Weston, Pathaan, Nick Luscombe, Dom Servini among others…
