Skinny Pelembe - Sleep More, Make More Friends
Skinny Pelembe has corralled together a cast of talented friends for his new EP. It’s the second release from the Doncaster-raised, multi-talented producer-cum-bandleader since signing to Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood label in February. This one’s a group effort, with each of its tracks featuring a different artist, each of them an act he’s met through music or through linking with Brownswood’s talent development programme Future Bubblers two years ago.
The EP touches on hip-hop, psych-rock and jazz-influenced sounds, continuing in the gloriously magpie-like approach of his earlier releases. Each of its songs started as a rough idea which was then fleshed out and re-imagined with his collaborators. He says that the title of the EP comes from some advice which he left for himself on an old notebook.
