ABOUT

Have you ever thought what it might sound like if you were to create drums using recordings of a lampshade or an elevator? Well join J.P. Riley as the auditory tidal wave that is his new EP “Warmth,” set to lap over the airwaves in mid 2021. 


 

Drawing from an array of different influences: alt-J, The Night Cafe and Enter Shikari to name a few, the British alternative pop artist has spent the past year moulding his musical style around his unique use of heavily morphed everyday sounds paired with emotive, melancholic lyrics, deep bass lines and heavily syncopated drums. Recording the songs from his old attic bedroom at his parents house, J.P. worked alongside Producer Tony "MC Biggie" Biggz of Zion Recording Studios - retired MC for acts such as Pendulum, Chase and Status and The Prodigy - in order to capture the nostalgic essence that lay within the resonances of the four walls the artist grew up in. 


 

After receiving compliments from BBC 6 Music's Chris Hawkins, who named the artist "one to watch", JP turns his focus to his second single of the EP, “93” which is a feel-good track to spark everyone's excitement for summer. Prior to release, the track was awarded "Record of the Week" by BBC Music Introducing's Simon Berry and after a well received debut release in the form of "23rd April", this song is certainly something to be excited about.
