A few days ago I received the promo for the Ninja Tune XX compilation. I feel like it wasn't that long ago that I was picking up the humble 3 disc set for the 10th anniversary of the ubiquitous label. Needless to say the compilation is stellar and has been rotating through my five CD disc changer (remember those?) constantly since I received it.
Eskmo, is one of Ninja Tune's most recent discoveries. He's released music via other stalwarts of electronic music, Warp and Planet Mu previously and on October 19th his self-titled debut full length will be released on Ninja Tune.
As a part of his upcoming North American tour, his album release and the XX Ninja Tune box set release; Eskmo is giving away his single 'Come Back' which is featured in the collection.
A crossover hybrid of sewer soul, rhythm step and dream funk.
Eskmo touches down in my current city, New Orleans, on October 21st, also my birthday. Trust I will be there.
