Joe Armon-Jones & Maxwell Owin
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.
‘Idiom’ (YAM Records) is their first combined effort and one of our favourite releases of the year so far; 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.
Next Tuesday, the pair come over to BR HQ for a live jam.
