In the run up to his album release next month, Jamie Isaac has shared his latest visual.
A sultry, dusk-dwelling slice of soul, a sound inspired by his parents love of rare groove that can be heard soundtracking his infamous DJ nights in and around London. The single originated in Los Angeles, during sessions with J.LBS and was then reimagined with an all-live band in London by Jamie Isaac himself. His skills as a producer and songwriter have developed immensely since his 2016 debut, and this latest release showcases his effervescent natural talent, operating in the space between jazz, soul, R&B, hip hop and electronics, he combines the sun of California and the grit of South London into heady atmospherics.
The latest track, Maybe is accompanied by slick, warped and moody visuals that echo the skewed vision of Gaspar Noe. Reflecting the wry lyricism across the album, it's a tongue-in-cheek piece that plays with the juxtaposition of being both an internationally touring sad boy and a bedroom producer. Jamie Isaac has continued to support young filmmakers, and after already working with Dexter Navy, Xavier Damase and Ashley Rommelrath he turned to the ICA's STOP PLAY RECORD (a now defunct program set up to provide support and funding to the best up-and-coming young filmmakers in the UK) and developed Maybe with director Alexander Rowland.
