PETE JOSEF (LIVE)
Pete Josef has always been a soul boy at heart, but his multi-instrumental skills have led him into some interesting situations. He has for years been recording and playing live with with D&B legend Roni Size and Reprazent, and fronts and co-produces the lo-fi house duo White Lamp with Darren Emerson (Underworld). He spent the summer season of 2014 on tour as bass player and guitarist in Kelis’ live band, gracing the stages of Glastonbury festival, Splendour in the Grass (Australia), Fuji Rock and Jools Holland.
Whilst in this time also working on his debut album, Pete has been busy collaborating on some exciting dance productions. He co-writes and sings on Alex Barcks summer sizzler, "Spinning Around", Sascha Braemers club smash "For You", and more recently on Comixxx’ deep masterpiece, "Broken Connection". The dance features keep coming in, and inform a sprinkling of electronic sounds in his originals.
As a singer and songwriter Pete has been featured on in numerous productions of Berlin-based label Sonar Kollektiv. So it was no surprise that he released his first solo album “Colour” on the same imprint. His debut is a deeply personal combination of jazz, soul, pop and subtle electronica, an emotive musical journey of depth, warmth and beauty, all underpinned by Josef’s brilliant voice and rich live instrumentation.
