« Music…properly new, part of something larger and still unnamed » NY Times
The J.A.W Family keeps pushing the music going “beyond the genres”. After having a blast with the Glasper Experiment last October, here is the “next thing” coming from NY City!
ERIMAJ is the creation of Harlem-based musician Jamire Williams, one of the most exciting drummers on the music scene today alongside Chris “Daddy” Dave, Kendrick Scott, Eric Harland or Justin Brown – a drummer who “sounds like Blakey & Roach but winds up with Dilla & DJ Screw” (Wax Poetics #52). Originally from Houston, Jamire has been snatched up by a bunch of influential cats such as Robert Glasper, Christian Scott, Jason Moran or the Doctor Lonnie Smith.
“Conflict Of A Man” is ERIMAJ debut album on Tiombe Lockhart (Waajeed/ Platinum Pied Pipers) label, following the Cinematic piece “Memo to all” EP (just listen to the brilliant rework of Madvillain classic “Rainbow”). The Long play is a perfect blend of jazz, R&B, nu-soul with hypnotic hip-hop beats, a beautiful piece of work referring now and then to visionaries like James Dewitt Yancey, Radiohead or Tony Williams.
For their very first appearance in Berlin, the band will be composed of some of the most "in demand" musicians out there & core members of ERIMAJ namely Corey KING (Yasiin Bey aka Mos Def/ Lauryn hill/ Jose James), Vicente ARCHER (Robert Glasper/ Roy Haynes/ Terrence Blanchard) & Matthew STEVENS (Christian Scott, Esperanza Spalding, Jason Moran), alongside our man Jamire WILLIAMS. Turn it up!!
