Skinny Pelembe w/ Ola Szmidt

2 October 2018

With a sample-hunting, studi medding mindset, Skinny Pelembe’s music roams hazy afro-tipped soul with psychedelic tangents. Born in Johannesburg, growing up in Doncaster, he’s a sparkling multi-instrumentalist who blends his production, guitar, singing and MCing to tap into a unique, influence weaving sound.

Signed by Giles Peterson’s ever remarkable Brownswood label, he’s one to watch out for in 2018.

The breathtaking York-based singer–songwriter Ola Szmidt will be supporting Skinny Pelembe at The Crescent Community Venue in October.

“Tastefully down-tempo production with an abstract sense of soul”
