About this item

Wildly talented keys player Joe Armon-Jones is back with new single "Icy Roads (Stacked)", a head-spinning blend of luminous jazz-funk synths, off-kilter drums and a languorous, ear-worm bassline. Featuring in-demand kit man KwAkE bAsS (who’s worked with Kate Tempest, Sampha and Joey Bada$$) and bassist Mutale Chashi (part of KOKOROKO), this is a tight trio hitting all the right notes. It features killer artwork nodding to Thrustera Herbie Hancock. Plus the vinyl comes backed with an exclusive B-side, the gloriously loose and languid "Aquarius".


It follows celebrated 2018 debut album “Starting Today”, praised by Pitchfork, Loud & Quiet and The Wire, the latter describing it as 'bass-rich music hustle straight out of the London soul-jazz-dance lineage.' He’s performed on Boiler Room, Worldwide FM and toured across the UK and Europe, including a sold out hometown show at London’s Village Underground. Away from his solo project, he’s a co-founder of Ezra Collective, regularly plays with London peers like Nubya Garcia, and has toured with the likes of Ata Kak and Pharoah Monch.
