Singer, producer, dj, engineer, artist, musician, composer, and remixer â€“ some are easy to label and some go into all of the above. Welcome to the world of astro-sound-naught label evasive, Emeson.
Self-taught on some things and world thoughtful on most.
London based, Emeson first appeared sonically as an original member of the group Lifesize, alongside producer/singer-songwriter Uzo Madu (Beya Records) and jazz/soul session musician Chris Jerome (Julian Joseph, Courtney Pine) contributing writing and performing on tracks such as 'Awake' and 'Is This The World We Live In'(Gangster Records)
His early memories of music include hanging out, playing eight-track cartridges in his dad's Volkswagen Hatchback and listening to the sound systems along the streets on summer days, music as varied as Jimmy Cliff, the Upsetters, Pioneers and James Brown right through to Don Williams, Steely Dan, Booker T & the MGâ€™s, The Jackson 5, The Sylvers, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles and Miles Davis. Further influences include John Foxx, Kraftwerk, Kleeer and the legendary Curtis Mayfield.
The Bittersoul EP (2004), Audiocentricities download album (2006) and this yearsâ€™ Connect EP and Equilibrium were all born within his Lab Soulphonica hideout.
In-between all this he would dj at various spots and promote his own themed nights. Over the years as a dj he has been a dj resident and guest in many quarters alongside 'keepers of the sound' Bobby & Steve, Norman Jay, Touch of Class, Mark One and many other dj luminaries.
These musical excursions have led emeson to produce, guest, remix, feature and write for artists such as the one and only Peter Gabriel (Shock the Monkey Emeson Remix), Mark De Clive-Lowe (Day by Day Invitation Rework), jazz great Chico Hamilton (Language Universal), Mariu (Venezuela, Eugenia), Yamasaki - Something Deeper & one of Spainâ€™s finest producers, Karma Sound (Maheâ€™)
Inspiration for his music & lyrics come from some of his own personal experiences, past, present and dreams of the yesternow. These thoughts, dreams, experiences lead us to Emesonâ€™s Equilibrium. Release - 29th Sept 2008
The fourth instalment and second album from the belly of Emeson's Lab Soulphonica studio, Equilibriumâ€™s is made up of true sonic electronica and avant - garde soul both fused with retro thought, present sense and future ensemble.
14 soundscape tracks meet world fate in a quest for calm and balance embroiled in both Emesonâ€™s vocal and instrumental delivery.
Featuring Emeson on all instruments and vocals, this is music not only for our time, but for all time.
