London-based multi-instrumentalist and producer Josh Arcoleo unleashes his new EP ‘K.O.K.O’, 10 years after releasing his debut album ‘Beginnings’ on Edition Records.
K.O.K.O (Keep On Keeping On – a mantra from Josh’s mentor the late jazz icon: Pee Wee Ellis) condenses big instrumental hooks, heavy beats and glitchy vocal samples into a stunning new record.
Josh Arcoleo is a powerhouse. One of the U.K’s hardest working musicians, Josh is usually found playing saxophone with some of the most innovative creators of our generation.
Over the last few years, whilst co-writing and performing on an eclectic mix of projects (Snowpoet, Dan Kye, Native Dancer) Josh has been honing his skills as multi-instrumentalist and producer for his genre-defying E.P.
The resulting music is a deeply personal statement, epitomising Josh’s creative energy. K.O.K.O (Keep On Keeping On – a mantra from Josh’s mentor the late jazz icon: Pee Wee Ellis) condenses big instrumental hooks, heavy beats and glitchy vocal samples into a stunning new record.
