Eska Opens Gate

Finally… and we do mean, finallyESKA is about to release her first ever solo music, after spending years as one of London’s most admired and sought after vocalists.
With hints of folk, soul, psychedelica and electronica, her long awaited EP Gatekeeper will arrive on November 20. Gilles Peterson has already made the set’s title song ‘track of the week’ on his BBC 6 Music show.
Having built her reputation as a writer and performer through collaborations with such legends of the game as Grace Jones, Cinematic Orchestra, Zero 7 and Bobby McFerrin together with performances in some of the world’s most famous venues and festivals, now Eska is forging her own sound. With co-production on two tracks coming from electronic star Matthew Herbert, Gatekeeper is almost certainly not what her jazz and 2-step fans were expecting.
There’ll be more in the print mag for sure.
