Ever since they shot on our radar last year we’ve got excited about London duo LE SON, who deliver a fusion of soul, R&B, trip-hop, and jazz all wrapped up in crisp and detailed electronic production.
The duo comprising Liam Fergus and Emily Ady jumped back into view in August with a swirling piece of electronica called Without A Sound. Having created a credible buzz with their earlier work, forward-thinking experimental label squareglass recently signed the pair to their eclectic roster.
Being big fans we’re delighted to have LE SON curate this mix for us and here’s what they had to say about their musical selection:
“The mix reflects a range of our combined influences. A mixture of artists across different genres who have inspired us and helped us find our own sound. As well as a cheeky little glimpse of some new unheard LE SON material.”
Sit back and relax as Liam and Emily glide from big band swing disco to contemporary jazz via tropical house and more. Happy listening!
