Released 8th March 2018
Navy Cut label boss J.Sparrow starts off 2019 with a weighty 2-sided 12" vinyl release which is a taster of the year to come.
Dissonance is a retrospective take on elements of lo-fidelity, breaks, jazz and hip hop sounds resulting in "pure banger business."
The B side is a remix of Jonah Freed's "Guns", originally released through Czech imprint Harmless Youth. A trap-grime-dubstep fusion, featuring the lyrical might of one of the UK's most talented MC's - Rider Shafique. "Step aside watch the ride INI come correct. Place your bets cos every time I make a shot it must connect. You feel like you know me but you no see nuttin yet!"... setting the scene for the style and vibe of the track.
In the first half of 2019, J.Sparrow is set to release his second solo album #00000365 on DEEP MEDi, and further remixes for Distinct Motive, Alter Echo & E3, Danny T & Tradesman, and Fiend.
Splitting his time between the studio and the decks, steadily solidifying his reputation as an authoritative force in electronic music.
