Keep

Niccolo Brown Lil Jabba is one of bass music's most exciting innovators. Starting out by ripping apart then reassembling footwork, "Keep" finds him venturing further into the realms of grime and trap he explored on last year's excellent "47" EP. Genre-bending aside though, when it comes to melody Jabba is in a class of his own and the six on offer here are among the most aromatic of his short career. Captivating. Favorite track: Grey.

about

Based in New York, Lil Jabba is a visual artist by day, but has been quietly influential with his recorded music - despite sounding like nobody else around. His debut album Scales used footwork's template (Teklife lynchpin DJ Rashad was an early Jabba supporter) as a foundation for colourful, sometimes gruesome audio tapestries, while subsequent EPs 47 and Gully saw Jabba apply this approach to Southern hip-hop, IDM-style structures and more.

Keep, a precursor to his second album, features Jabba's most advanced and developed music yet, drawing from grime, jungle and more. No matter how weird it gets, though, it never loses touch of the melodies that have always been at the heart of his music. There's nobody around making tracks like Lil Jabba, and Keep showcases him at his most complex and most simple.

Early support from Hudson Mohawke, Ryan Hemsworth, Murlo, S-Type and more.
