Five years later he was ready to release Ghost Notes, an album brimming with sadness and cinematic beauty, but one also steeped in the UK bass culture with which he grew up.
Hiatus’s latest single, Insurrection, is a commemoration of the 30th anniversary of the Brixton riots, and features vocals from legendary dub poet Linton Kwesi Johnson. The track has blown up on national radio, and beat Gorillaz and The Strokes to Single Of The Week on a recent episode of Steve Lamacq’s Roundtable. Watch the video here.
Hiatus is currently working on a live band show for the summer, juggling remixes and producing an EP with singer-songwriter Shura, who can be seen performing the track River with him on our exclusive video. He will also be travelling to Iran to begin work on a second album later this year.
