More Info:

Limited 180gm vinyl LP pressing. In 2014, Vels Trio entered the UK jazz-fusion echelons with breakout EP Yellow Ochre. Conjuring the spirit of old greats and modern innovators like Pat Metheny and Robert Glasper, the trio captured the underground audience whilst inaugurating themselves into the headier jazz foray. With a feature from the mighty Shabaka Hutchings bolstering the EP to a broader audience, and astonishing live performances, the record led to sold out shows across Europe in 2018. Since then the band have been busy on-hire for other prominent artists within international soulful jazz scenes, backing for the likes of Charlotte dos Santos and Poppy Ajudha. Their individual journeys involve drummer Dougal Taylor working with Emma-Jean Thackray and Neue Grafik Ensemble on critically acclaimed EPs, bassist Cameron Dawson signing to Ubiquity with Mamas Gun, and keyboard virtuoso Jack Stephenson Oliver creating dancefloor magic with SAUL and Nigerian composer Etuk Ubong. Fast forward to 2020, with follow-up single "The Wad" conquering the Spotify jazz playlists, the band have an album in the works for 2021, dropping on your doorstep via Rhythm Section International. The reissue also includes a breakbeat 'n' cuica remix of "Yellow Ochre Pt. 1" from the ever-reliable beatmaker extraordinaire, Footshooter (Dance Regular, YAM Records), ready for living room dancefloors.
