With 2015’s Notting Hill Carnival still fresh in our memories, this week’s jam is a placid dub tune that spurs the gentle hip-swaying of couples on the dance floor. It’s ‘More Than Memories’ by Jr Thomas & the Volcanos. This songwriter, who hails from Minneapolis, USA, writes reggae and soul influenced music in a similar wheelhouse to The Skints. His upcoming debut album, Beware, was recorded at the Volcano Lounge in Los Angeles, and is out later this month on Truth & Soul Records.
‘More Than Memories’ appears on Beware, out September 18, 2015, on Truth & Soul Records.
