Sons Of Kemet are the elder-statesmen of LDN jazz. Comprised of drummers Tom Skinner and Eddie Hick, tuba player Theon Cross and saxophonist/bandleader Shabaka Hutchings, Sons Of Kemet are still in their thirties but have been making some of the most pioneering music in the city—together and solo—for almost a decade. Your Queen Is A Reptile earned them a Mercury Prize nomination and a place on the iconic jazz label Impulse! Records. Made up of a series of bombastic, high-energy tracks, each named after an alternative black queen—i.e. "My Queen Is Harriet Tubman"—it's a takedown of colonialism and the monarchy that still slaps, despite the heavy subject matter. Jungle legend Congo Natty pops up on "My Queen Is Mamie Phipps Clark" to lend some psychedelic dub flavour that will blow your speakers apart.
