London-based keyboard virtuoso, composer and producer Joe Armon-Jones returns with ‘Pray’, a single that launches his new label, Aquarii Records. Aquarii will be a home for all of Joe’s forthcoming solo releases and collaborative work.
Effortlessly fusing soul, hip hop, jazz and funk influences, ‘Pray’ features Morgan Simpson of Black Midi on drums alongside Luke Wynter of Nubiyan Twist on bass. It will also see a physical release on 10” vinyl with an exclusive vinyl only track on the b-side ‘Nothing Move’ and the artwork is by regular collaborator Divya Scialo.
Joe’s vision with Aquarii is “a home for the music that is around me; somewhere it can live and somewhere it can flourish”. In 2021 Joe will be releasing collaborations with extended family Fatima, Mala and Hak Baker.
Between his highly acclaimed solo work and his work with the influential Ezra Collective, Joe Armon-Jones is at the epicentre of the London underground scene and has recently collaborated with the late Tony Allen, Mahalia, Nubya Garcia, Greentea Peng, Poppy Ajudha, Moses Boyd and Ego Ella May.
