Listen to the conversation, and also stream Hello Skinny's latest album below. "Emerging from a London jazz scene long intertwined with the changing styles of the city's club and bass cultures, drummer / composer Tom Skinner is already at the centre of a complex web of projects and collaborations. Proving that a decent and imaginative sticksman will never be short of work, his most high-profile associate is probably the near-ubiquitous Matthew Herbert, but Skinner is also a member of the increasingly-acclaimed trio Zed-U, led by fast-rising horn player Shabaka Hutchings, and Hutchings and Skinner also play in Sons of Kemet, where Skinner doubles up with Polar Bear drummer Seb Roachford." - The Quietus Watermelon Sun by Hello Skinny Hello Skinny’s performance at Le Guess Who? 2018 is curated by Shabaka Hutchings. This curated program also features o.a. Sons of Kemet XL, STUFF., The Comet Is Coming, BCUC, Paddy Steer, Kadri Gopalnath, King Ayisoba, Ill Considered, and many more.
