Getting Late

    Yakul are a four-piece neo soul band from Brighton, UK, influenced by the likes of J-Dilla, D’Angelo and Hiatus Kaiyote, with a growing reputation within the rapidly growing new soul and jazz movement coming out of the UK at the moment.

    Yakul released their critically-acclaimed debut EP ‘Getting Late’ in August 2019, picking up key radio support from tastemakers Gilles Peterson (6Music), Jamz Supernova (1Xtra) and KCRW (LA), alongside Spotify and Deezer official playlist support including Jazz UK and Soultronic. They released a new single ‘Holidays’ in November 2019. The EP features collaborations with leading players from the burgeoning London jazz and soul scene - Louis VI, Sheila-Maurice Grey and Charlie Stacey.
    'Blossoming' off the EP has been nominated as the Track of the Year at the prestigious Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Awards 2020, winners to be announced in late January 2020.
