    Long awaited debut album from South London's finest - Yussef Kamaal! 

    Ever since their 22a Boiler Room show in 2015 there has been big hype around these guys. 'Black Focus' is here, and will only enhance the hype. The album is all about keys and drums, expertly provided by Kamaal Williams (aka Henry Wu) and Yussef Dayes. Together they have created an exquisite blend of modern jazz funk fusion! The 4Hero - esque 'Strings of Light' and Lonnie Liston Smith inspired 'Lowrider' are the one's for us, however it must be said, every tune is a winner!

    Highly Recommended!!!!!
