From David Dallas’ website:
Throughout your life certain artists will resonate with you more than others. Often you can look back and pinpoint the moment when the influence of a particular artist changed your musical taste or your opinion about something.
Jamiroquai was one of those bands for me. Largely due to the fact I was so obsessed with Hip Hop & R&B music as a kid – I never bothered to give any music outside of my little box a chance.
Like everyone else I was intrigued by the “Virtual Insanity” video when it dropped, but stealing my sisters copy of their Travelling Without Moving album then subsequently picking up their previous 2 albums opened up a whole new world to me, and led me to discover a raft of other artists and songs.
They remain significant to me not just because of their great catalogue, but because I credit them as being the band that made an extremely closed minded kid realize he was capable of enjoying other genres of music.
This E.P is the culmination of an idea we started floating around 3 years ago. A project inspired by one of my favourite bands isn’t something I’ve taken lightly. We’ve put our hearts into this, I hope you enjoy it and I hope that we’ve done some justice to the work of a great act.
All Songs inspired by, sampled or interpolated from the catalogue of Jamiroquai.
