This one is about two amazing musicians and singers by the name of Zara Mcfarlane for London and Charlotte Dos Santos for Oslo & now Berlin, her new home.

Zara has been in our playlist for years now. Her unique voice got us directly. We´re so thrilled to have her with her brand to present her new album - Arise - out this September on Gilles Peterson Brownswood Recording. On Arise, Zara McFarlane returns to a buoyant UK jazz scene with a head-turning third album. Exploring the musical possibilities of British-Jamaican identity. It sees her working with much-feted drummer and producer Moses Boyd. Both rose through London’s Tomorrow’s Warriors programme, a finishing school for many young vanguards of the live, ascendant jazz scene springing up across the UK capital. Sharing Caribbean family heritages, it’s a product of their joint exploration of the meeting points between jazz and the rhythms of Jamaica; reggae, Kumina, calypso and nyabinghi, shaded with hints of the psychedelic.

Alongside drummer Moses Boyd on production, the album features a stellar line up of some of the key players on the London scene: Binker Golding on tenor sax, Peter Edwards on piano, Shirley Tetteh on guitar, Nathaniel Cross on trombone and an unusually restrained turn on clarinet from Shabaka Hutchings. Shared between all of them is a tendency to find the common points between different musical ilks: from US hard bop jazz, to dub and London-rooted hybrids and permutations, the band on Arise reflect the musical diversity of their home.

Charlotte Dos Santos is one of our best recent musical surprises. She just released her debut album - Cleo - a beautiful journey into her world and the ones of her musical influences: Madvillain, Strata East, Freddie Hubard, Erykah Badu...could be worst. Charlotte has a softly swaying soul-pop. Raised outside Oslo on a diet of D’Angelo, bossa nova, and classical impressionism, she later trained as a jazz singer, which shines through both in her effortless vocal delivery and her knack for instrumental improvisation.
