The solo project of esteemed drummer Tom Skinner (whose other recent projects include Sons of Kemet and Owiny Sigoma Band), Watermelon Sun features influential trombone player and composer Peter Zummo - a friend and collaborator of the late great Arthur Russell. For Skinner, that open-minded attitude of the New York City no-wave scene in the late '70s/early '80s serves as inspiration for the album. Recorded in improvised single take sessions that merge said aesthetics with 'London's genre-blurring, jazz-influenced vanguard.' Funk bass mixes with neon-lit synths and sexy sax on "Mr. P.Z.", there's deeply chilled beats for sessions of stoned drifting on the emotive "Bluebells" and some live liquid drum & bass on "Rashad". At a time when hybridization of genres are increasingly being embraced in UK venues and clubs, this album embraces that open-minded attitude and reimagines that underground New York legacy for London in 2017.
