2017 has been a great year for British music, we have been blessed with the emerging of new talent such as Oscar Jerome who today shares with us his new single ‘Subdued’ which sees the south London artist blending electronica & hip hop music to generate a Gill Scott and J Dilla inspired track.
The seven-minute-long ‘Subdued’ acts as a plateau for Oscar as he flaunts his talent as a guitarist. The beautifully crafted single is a response to the arrogance of western culture as he sings of people refusing to take the blame. Written and arranged by Oscar himself, Subdued also has production credits from Wu-Lu who produced the fantastic record.
This release is a follow up to Oscar’s 2016 self-titled debut EP which gained praise from music tastemakers such as Radio 1, Boiler Room, 1Xtra and 6Music. And recently featuring in I-D’s latest issue, it is evident that 2018 will be Oscar’s year to flourish as he will be making his debut New York show on January 10th, 2018 as part of Gilles Peterson’s BBC Introducing session.
But you can see him live before the year ends by attending his sold-out London show at Servant Jazz Quarters on November 15 or join him on the UK tour leg of Songhoy Blues throughout November and December.
In the meantime, familiarise yourself with this emerging talent Oscar Jerome by pressing play and allow yourself to be wowed by his new single Subdued.
