Emma-Jean Thackray is quickly becoming one of our favourite artists on the local London scene, with the infectious “Baro Bop” cut serving as our introduction. Since then we’ve enjoyed her debut record and impressive performances in which she casually plays both trumpet and various machines whilst band leading and singing, quite often two or three of the above at once. With a new EP on the way, via The Vinyl Factory, Emma-Jean has been busy collaborating on stage with the likes of Tom Skinner, the LSO and Neue Grafik. With DJing also adding to her resume lately we were tempted to ask for a mix that might reveal her tastes and inspirations, the result being a heavy dose of spiritual jazz and African funk.
