Staff picks is back with a fresh selection from label manager Jane, who's chosen J. Lamotta's 'Sezume' - available here.
For my staff pick I have selected an album that I just can’t stop listening to. Brand new into the Bongo shop is this little gem from Berlin-based artist, J Lamotta.
This is her second release on brilliant hip hop/soul label Jakarata Records. Born in Tel Aviv into Moroccan family, her music is an expressive blend of jazz and neo-soul with a rich, current RnB sound. This storytelling album showcases her multi-instrumentalist talents and top-level production skills. A big one for fans of Lauren Hill and Marvin Gaye.
