Emeson has certainly been around the way to get to this moment in time.
An intrepid explorer for our time and in another galaxy more distant, Emeson seems like a time – traveller in a hurry.
Throw in three independent albums (Audiocentricities, Equilibrium, extraSolar*), several EP’s, a clutch of universal collaborations and front man stints in several bands and you start to get a general notion for his work-rate and undiluted passion.
Emeson first appeared sonically as an original member of the group Lifesize, alongside producer/singer-songwriter Uzo Madu (Beya Records) and jazz/soul session musician Chris Jerome (Julian Joseph, Courtney Pine) contributing writing and performing on tracks such as ‘Awake’ and ‘Is This The World We Live In’(Gangster Records)
His early memories of music include hanging out, playing eight-track cartridges in his dad’s Volkswagen Hatchback and listening to the sound systems along the streets on summer days, music as varied as Jimmy Cliff, the Upsetters, Pioneers and James Brown right through to Don Williams, Steely Dan, Booker T & the MG’s, The Jackson 5, The Sylvers, Stevie Wonder, The Beatles and Miles Davis.Further influences include John Foxx, Kraftwerk, Kleeer and the legendary Curtis Mayfield. The Bittersoul EP (2004), Audiocentricities download album (2006) , Connect EP and Equilibrium were all born within his Lab Soulphonica hideout.
In-between all this he would dj at various spots and promote his own themed nights.Over the years as a dj he has been a dj resident and guest in many quarters,alongside ‘keepers of the sound’ Bobby & Steve, Norman Jay, Touch of Class, Mark One and many other dj luminaries.
These musical excursions have led emeson to produce, guest, remix, feature and write for artists such as the one and only legendary Peter Gabriel (Shock the Monkey Emeson Remix), the colossal jazz great Chico Hamilton (Language Universal), photo-muso-journo Mariu (Venezuela, Eugenia), myspace chart topping lounge – lizard Yamasaki – Something Deeper and several international artists including Don Cuco (Sundrop), Karma Sound (Mahe), Drum Drama (Misery) and Cain from the beat creative Arkestra (Now You, SuperGirl) , feature and tour as vocalist for the electronic soul band, The One supporting the likes of Quadron and playing live at Ronnie Scott's, Shunt, Catch, Cargo, Old Blue Last and many more venues.
Emeson returned in 2012 with an intergalactic double album entitled extraSolar* on 24thCenturyRecords.
Acclaimed and well received by the Soultronic fraternity, tracks like ’Supernova, Sun-Ra and ‘I Have Come To Love You’ have been played extensively from London to LA.
2013 saw Emeson collaborate with Skandouz (Soldier) on his his #Fearless Vol 1 album and also with dubstep producer, Joe London (Morning To Night).
He is part of the acclaimed Saturn’s Children ensemble, with the amazing turntablist, producer and beatmaker Karmasound offering lyrics and vocals to Karma's mesmerising beatscapes.
Emeson now returns will the Bespoke EP.
A sartorial musical timepiece embellished with Afrocentricity, jazz fusion contusion, electronic sonnet and soul nuance.
Emeson is currently double parked on Alpha Centauri.
