Introducing 18 year old beatsmith wizard Jude Woodhead, coming straight outta Forrest Hill, South London. The young producer has just released his deliciously groovy, tropically infused debut track ‘Beautiful Rain’.
Classically trained on the trumpet and self taught on piano and drums, the promising multi instrumentalist draws his inspiration from an eclectic melting pot of sounds, most notably Congolese and South African records he found in his dads collection, as well as more contemporary acts such as Four Tet or Floating Points… all of which is truly resonate through his music. The thumping backbone of a beat, superimposed on the enchanted sample makes for the grooviest of records.
I sure look forward to hearing what comes next from Jude Woodhead, but until then, this one’s going on repeat.
