The LP is the result of four years’ worth of “different collaborations with a variety of vocalists and remixers,” Ink Project’s Jez Lloyd explains. “My production style has always been quite eclectic and so the album moves between sample-based ambient/downtempo, psychedelic, future dub, gothic soul, electro, and global music.” It’s an exhilarating amalgamation of styles and sounds from the UK’s flourishing musical lexicon.
Rhythm Spirit features the vocal talents of Trinidadian-born Bristol-based Coreysan on the LP’s first single, “Feeding The Fire,” Chinese-born, London-based Fifi Rong on “Slow Suicide,” and rising soul singer Yazmyn Hendrix on “Blink.”
Ink Project are a live electronic/soul collective founded by run by Jez Lloyd. He started the group in his hometown of London, enlisting the vocal talents of Melanie Dymond. he released Ink Project’s debut album, Inside The Sun via the Blind Colour imprint in December 2011.
