Video: J-Felix – Patience feat. Abi Flynn
Producer, singer and multi-instrumentalist J-Felix first showcased the heavy ‘80s funk lilt and dubby rhythmic driving force of his then still-in-progress debut album with the “101 Reasons” EP, back in January. Now, with the full LP complete, he is ready to unveil more from the record; the first official single to be lifted from the upcoming album (also entitled ‘101 Reasons’) is the sultry, soulful “Patience feat. Abi Flynn” backed with the out-and-out booty-call funk of “Late Night SOS”, out 15th June as a digital double A-side on Tru Thoughts.
Brighton based Bristolian Joe F Newman grew up on a diet of D&B, hip hop and dubwise music, and was inspired by the approach of those he saw taking the DIY route in the electrically exciting scene of his hometown. After discovering the sources of so many of the samples he heard, he then fell in love with all things funk, jazz and soul, developing a particular taste for the P-funk and boogie sounds which now come through heavily in his music. “The 80’s wasn’t good for much, so I often hear, but when it comes to funk it was a fantastic decade!” he enthuses.
