about

Joe Armon-Jones & Maxwell Owin are forces to be reckoned with. Both integral parts of the burgeoning South London jazz scene, these young musicians contribute to numerous outfits including Ata Kak, Jamie Isaac, MC Pinty, Moses Boyd Exodus and Ezra Collective, as well as pushing their own solo projects.

This is their first combined effort.

'Idiom' is the result of multiple collaborations under the direction of Joe and Maxwell. Featuring Nubya Garcia, Oscar Jerome and Jake Long, it is heavily influenced by the hardcore continuum and covers everything from 2-step, broken-beat and house to jazz and dub.

Having been compared to artists like 4hero, Floating Points, Harvey Sutherland and Moodymann all in the same breath, and already garnering support from Radio 6 Music's Gilles Peterson, Musica Macondo's Tim Garcia and Jazz FM's Chris Philips, this is an accomplished body of work by some of the most exciting young talent in London right now.
