Player One - Who Am I
Love Our Records presents the début solo single from ‘Player One’.
Player One aka Nigel Taylor has kept his musical heritage close to his chest, when intially working with electro act Endoflevelbaddie.
As time passed, with more and more meetings with label owner Kev La Kat , the truth unfolded.
"Yeah my grandad is an Afro Beat artist in Ghana, called Ebo Taylor!" Said Player One down the phone.
“WHAttt!?” i replied , gob-smacked to how this had never come up in previous conversation.
For those of you that dont know, a quick wiki check will tell you .. “Ebo Taylor is a Ghanaian guitarist, composer, arranger, bandleader, and producer.
His music combines Afro-Beat and funk rhythms to create his own recognizable sound in the ’70s” and still to this day he is gigging all over the world.
Then Nigel sent me a half finished demo of “Who Am I” which he had started with Dj Cable and had never been finished.
The tune initially excited me and felt that it honestly portrayed Nigel’s story whilst incorporating his Granddad’s music in a warm, fun way. So we set to work, re-sampling Ebo’s great grooves and adding sub bass , with 909’s and a break. Whilst Nigel set about writing the second verse.
Seems like a long time in the making but well worth the wait! <3
