J-Walk “Off Beat” is available now at all good record shops and reputable on line stores plus of course all formats also available at the WONDERFULSOUND shop
Vinyl / Ltd CD / DL
Incorporating the squiggles and squelches of vintage analogue synthesizers and breaks and beats J-Walk is back with an albm of lo-fi vibes reminiscent of recent Francis Bebey or William Onyearbor reissues but bought into the 21st century with the classic J-Walk sound.
Harpsichords, vibraphones, early moog synths, are prominent, underlining the influence of TV programmes such as The Sweeney or the Professionals and the inclusion of the cover version of “Vespucci” converts Hitchhikers into Bladerunner. J-Walk Is back soaked in synths, beats and soundscapes.
"The cover version of BBC Radiophonic’s Paddy Kingsland’s "Vespucci" Is excellent."
"Our favourite Franco-Manco hits the library styles in his typical lo-fi manner. BBQ beats for a World Cup Summer”
CARWYN “COLORAMA” ELLIS
"Beats like they should be - dusty yet playful, and with plenty of bounce"
"Fantastic new album from J-Walk….. shall be playing this on my travels all this year"
