Two Londoners got so much in each other’s pockets that they ended up bringing their names together. Yussef Dayes and Kamaal Williams. A drummer and a keyboard player. They hail from South East London and celebrate it in both their lyrics and their music where jazz flirts with broken beat. Together they form the foundation of a project that wavers between a trio and quintet; with bass and wind. “It’s all about drums and keyboards. Not to put anything down but it all comes from there: the notes, the rhythm of the notes and the percussion,” says Kamaal Williams, better known as Henry Wu (in the English boiler rooms) on the house scene. The essential bass gives consistency to the layers, psychedelic effects and surgical precision-groove.
