It’s not often we mention Jimi Hendrix and Trap music in the same sentence. Or Brixton and George Benson. In this case Mansur Brown embodies all of these. An integral part of the groundbreaking Yussef Kamaal album, he now releases his debut album on Black Focus Records.
As Thundercat claims the Bass Guitar, Robert Glasper the keys, the 21 year old prodigy from south east London claims the Guitar. Welcome to Shiroi.
Virtuoso guitarist Mansur Brown has released his debut album Shiroi via Kamaal Williams aka Henry Wu’s Black Focus Records.
A key part of Williams and Yussef Dayes’ Black Focus album in 2016, and a collaborator on a number of projects since, Brown has been tipped as heir apparent to London’s genre-defying so-called ‘jazz’ scene.
As with many of the records brought under this umbrella, Shiroi draws on percussive electronics, trap and jazz fusion in equal measure – knitted together by Brown’s dexterous playing and Hendrix-esque flair for reverb.
