Joe Armon-Jones drops Starting Today in Dub

Author • Jake Hulyer

South London virtuoso keys wizard Joe Armon-Jones returns with two freaked out dub versions, re-rubbing two entries from his debut for Brownswood earlier this year. ‘Starting Today Dub’ is stripped back and stretched out to maximum effect. ‘Mollison Dub Vocal Version (Feat. Asheber)’ spaces out the original and adds in extra vocals from West London dub staple Asheber.

His debut album, Starting Today, came out in May 2018. Part of the vibrant young jazz scene in London, it brought together a bunch of players under that umbrella. It was praised by Pitchfork, Loud and Quiet and CLASH. In the words of The Wire, it’s "bass-rich music hustle straight out of the London soul-jazz-dance lineage.”

The new versions are out now on digital and the first batch of pre-orders have all sold out. Head here to stream / order. For anyone still looking to pick up a copy, a limited number will be onsale at his London show in February. For more details on that and the rest of his tour dates head here.
