Brixton based beatmaker Simon Jefferis has been setting mouths ajar with his expertly-crafted, atmosphere heavy music over the past few years. With his reputation as both a talented instrumentalist, and adaptive producer steadily circulating through the city’s hip hop undercurrents, 2020 sees SJ return to rising label DeepMatter with his new single “Back 2 Ours”.
“Back 2 Ours” sees Jefferis channels golden eras energies, as a warming vibraphone pattern sits atop a jazz-infused rhythm section. This perfectly sets the stage for Austin’s Abhi The Nomad, to take on vocal duties, delivering a verse in his distinctive laid back style. Serving as SJ’s first offering since the success of his 2019 track “High Grade” (which featuring Dylan Jones & Natty Reeves), “Back 2 Ours” also serves as a taster of his forthcoming album “Vibrations” which is due to be released in June.
