Jessie Ware and Julio Bashmore

The wave of urban music is unstoppable. Young musicians using the language of the metropolis to tell their story in rhythm, poetry and creativity. And they are increasingly joining forces to produce material that reaches extraordinary heights of originality and charm, as with celebrated house producer Julio Bashmore and star of the “new” English soul Jessie Ware. The two have worked together to produce ‘Devotion’, Ware’s stunning debut album – which delves deep in to the musical roots that have inspired Ware then propels itself in to a bright, confident future.

Following the success of the first collaboration, the two are now working on Julio’s new album and its gorgeous debut single ‘Peppermint’ already dazzled us with its hypnotic rhythms halfway between the Balearics and deep house while the album itself numbers among one of the standouts of the year.
