Born in Scotland and raised in Manchester on his father’s extensive record collection, multi-instrumentalist Tom Walker has developed a unique style that blends J Dilla inspired hip-hop beats with electronic sounds, layered on top of his soulful and gritty vocal.
’Sun Goes Down’ incorporates a sample from a 1930’s rendition of the work song ‘I’ll Be So Glad When The Sun Goes Down’, as he explores the idea of the oppression that still remains in the modern world.
Nice to see these two collaborate and they both showed mutual respects for their talent.
‘I first saw Kojey Radical performing at Oslo in Hackney, he has such an aura about him when he performs. He truly had the crowd in the palm of his hand’ Tom says
‘Tom has one of those voices that stops you in your tracks, it’s a rarity that is only matched by how genuine he is as a writer and as a vocalist. Once I heard the record I knew I had to be involved somehow. He was a pleasure to work with’ speaks Kojey.
Expect a video for this great track very soon
