Theon Cross - Fyah

Record of the Week is Fyah from Theon Cross, and it is absolutely and totally all PURE FIRE...


Theon will be known to you already as part of the award-winning Sons Of Kemet, and he truly plays Tuba like no-one else. It's an album that drips with booming horn, sweaty dancefloor bangers and feels like a love letter to London's vivid cultural heritage. Nubya Garcia and Moses Boyd feature heavily, also Wayne Francis of Steam Down guests. This is an album we'll be blasting all year long.

"A player in Shabaka Hutchings’ Sons of Kemet and a key figure in London’s vital jazz scene, Cross brings new energy to the tuba, an instrument long neglected in jazz and its offshoots." - Pitchfork
