As one of the most successful jazz collaborations in recent years, the work of DOMi Louna and JD Beck seems to have propelled the genre back in to the musical mainstream.
New single ‘TAKE A CHANCE’ is the third track to be lifted from theirforthcoming debut album, entitled ‘NOT TiGHT’ (preorder here) – and features none other than soul & funk icon Anderson .Paak himself.
With their playful yet finessed take on music-making, this duo’s work has led to a very sizeable and hugely loyal fanbase all across social media.
“My philosophy of life is don’t take shit too seriously.” – DOMi Louna
I haven’t guessed as many as acts as I usually do with this poll this year (2016 seems to be the unpredictable year in more ways than one) – so it’s hard for me to figure exactly who will win this year at the moment.
Purely based on the immense quality of his work over the years I’d like Rag ‘n’ Bone Man to win.
Tom Grennan, Raye and Jorja Smith also deserve some love. Yet on a mainstream level, Maggie Rogers and Anderson Paak tick some boxes. Who knows though… Who knows..!
The shortlist works it’s way towards the end of the year.
