Album: Reginald Omas Mamode IV – Children of Nu

Reginald Omas Mamode IV releasing new album Children of Nu

A little over a year since the release of his 2016 self-titled LP, South London soul artist Reginald Omas Mamode IV blesses us with a brand new full length called “Children Of  Nu”.

This 20 track album encompasses Reginald’s musical and sonic influences – Afro Roots music through to jazz, soul and hip hop. The album finds him exploring everyday critical themes like rising poverty, global events, political and ethnic divisions.

“We are all related. We’re all brothers and sisters with common ancestry, common history and a common origin regardless of race, geographic location or belief systems. Love and compassion are universal feelings/practices we all should embrace and apply to all aspects of our lives, our interactions and our relationships, regardless of the kinship”. – Reginald Omas Mamode IV

Recorded mostly in one take and made with minimal thought of how the songs would end up, the music was led through a free creative process. This creative freedom gives the album a vibrant, exciting and unpredictable feel.

It might be 20 tracks long but with a run time of just 36 minutes, it feels all too brief, still it’s a trip definitely worth taking.
