Native Dancer

EPs, Vol. I & II

Submit Records

Released: 26th May 2017 | 10 track neo-soul ep

Birthed from deep within London's burgeoning Jazz resurgence, Native Dancer have been setting levels across the capital's live scene (and beyond) over the past two years. Five individual artists who together set out to create a music that speaks from the heart and denies none of their influences in a genre twisting mashup of styles with elements of pop, soul, electro-funk, jazz, rock and dance music. These sonic explorers have created a sound world that attempts to dissolve boundaries fusing acoustic instruments, synthesizers and samples. The music evokes ideas of parallel realities, a common element that connects everything and ultimately promotes peace and love. Cementing their status as a force to be reckoned with, the group have also been invited to SXSW as part of Jazz Re:Freshed's hotly tipped showcase, featuring other shining lights of London's scene: Yussef Kamaal, Moses Boyd Exodus, Sarathy Korawar and more. The debut offering from Submit Records sees the outfits first two EPs are lovingly pressed to vinyl for the first time, accompanied by a shuffling, soulful rework from beatsmith Eric Lau. The digital package also comes complete with a remix from Slugabed, who pulls on a thread from Native Dancer's 'In Clouds' and watches it unravel into an unnerving odd-time club monster.

"London-based Native Dancer is a refreshing burst of imagination, uniqueness, and purpose in a crowded electro-fusion landscape."
