NEW MUSIC: ESKMO

The new NinjaTune XX download is from their new signing Eskmo.

Whilst Ninja Tune is hellbent on making its 20th anniversary celebrations memorable to say the least, we’re also intent on signing the artists that will keep us going another 20 years. Eskmo is one of the latest of these; a young artist deeply rooted in the resurgence of electronic music, with the vision and talent to write songs that defy genre and could only be his own. With prior recordings being released on esteemed labels Warp and Planet Mu, San Francisco based Eskmo is already being touted as one of the key artists in a new wave of creativity in electronica.

Described by Bleep.com as “Masterfully produced… sophisticated, post-Dilla hip-hop funk,” Eskmo’s music has caught the attention of Amon Tobin, who he collaborated with on a project entitled Eskamon. He has also toured as a live act throughout North America and Europe, and opened for both Amon and Flying Lotus. Pendulum’s Elhornet said in a recent interview: “There are good producers, then there are dudes who you never catch..and don’t even try. He’s one of those…”

This week’s Ninja Tune XX giveaway is a brand new Eskmo track entitled ‘Come Back.’ Showcasing his mastery of electronic production and trademark sound, it reveals exactly why we’re so excited about the newest addition to our roster. Eskmo will be playing the Ninja Tune XX parties in London, Paris and Brussels, and his first single, ‘Cloudlight,’ will be featured on the Ninja Tune XX compilation. Expect a brand new album coming this October too.
