His solo shows promise to shock and surprise audiences with original and unpredictable sets that draw from brand new material as well as music released by iconic record labels Honest Jons (London) and Stones Throw Records (USA). His latest music was recorded in Uganda in 2015 and is as much Lo – Fi techno as it is psychedelic guitar drone and filmic soundscapes.
For his last album Jesse Hackett (Stones Throw) created the sounds with a Yamaha PSR-110 that he literally found in a recycling dump. Hackett was inspired to work within the parameters of the keyboard as a template and see how far he could take it. This year jesse is developing his audio visual solo performance with an amazing collection of new songs and videos . He collaborated with Owiny Sigoma Band and toured with Gorillaz as the group’s synth player.
