Channelling influences including UK jazz, New Jersey house and Chicago footwork, it’s the melodies – played on trombone, tenor sax and the keys – which are the bright-shining, consistent thread throughout. Over the past thirty years, dance music has splintered off into a myriad web of different styles and tribes. But in the beginning, things were different: starting with New York’s late ‘70s disco boom, the city’s fertile club scene co-mingled hip-hop, R&B, punk and the avant-garde. For Hello Skinny, that open-minded attitude serves as inspiration for Watermelon Sun. Recorded in free-form, improvised live sessions, it sees that broad-minded club lineage channelled through London’s genre-blurring, jazz-influenced vanguard.
Hello Skinny is joined by Mr Peter Zummo in the Brownswood Basement for a special live performance of Mr ., from the recently released album WATERMELON SU. .

Under Hello Skinny, his brainchild project, Skinner released his self-titled album in 2012, which was one of our Picks of the Year. Five years on, Hello Skinny has announced its follow-up, Watermelon Sun. The fruit of free-form, improvised live sessions, Watermelon Sun is inspired by the open-minded attitude of the New York’s club scene of the late 70’s and UK jazz. To bring the record to life, Skinner enlisted the help of celebrated trombone player and composer Peter Zummo
