Out 29th July, "The Runaway" EP is the latest release from Brighton-based producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist J-Felix on Tru Thoughts. Hot on the heels of his killer "101 Reasons" album, , this digital EP uncovers three new tracks featuring soulful vocals from label-mates Harleighblu & Abi Flynn.
Bristol-born and Brighton-based, J-Felix aka Joe Newman has cut his teeth in an eclectic range of bands and musical projects, including touring internationally as Alice Russell's guitarist, as well as having his work licensed to various compilations alongside the likes of DJ Vadim, Ta Ku and Opolopo.
J-Felix's latest clutch of disco-gems is heavily inspired by the music he's been grooving to. From the golden era of 90s hip-hop to R&B, afrobeat and new disco edits aplenty, Newman's vast taste is an ever-filling source of inspiration to dive into. "With this EP" Newman explains "I wanted to keep it soulful, jazzy and funky whilst considering a more club friendly approach". J-Felix steers away from samples in his music, layering his own instrumental beds and calling on the fresh and original vocals of the latest divas on the scene to breathe life into them.
