Warp Records releases the debut album from London-based composer and producer Nala Sinephro. ‘Space 1.8’ is a gorgeous, inventive fusion of electronic music with elements of folk and jazz, and fulfils the promise that the Caribbean-Belgian artist has displayed since becoming one of the hottest names on the British jazz scene over the last couple of years.

Space 1.8 is a record occupying an ambiguous state of time, place and mind. It could’ve emerged from the golden age of healing music alongside the pioneering work of Laurie Spiegel and Alice Coltrane; a lost classic slept upon by its contemporaneous audience and rediscovered to rapturous praise many decades later — and yet there’s a vitality to its pastel jazz chords and sudden bursts of bilious, free energy that gives it the characteristic of a sound distinct from the music of any age. What’s more with a glowing musical troupe including Nubya Garcia (Jazz re:freshed), Shirley Tetteh (Jazz Jamaica, Groundation, Nérija) Dwayne Kilvington (Wonky Logic, Steam Down) and Eddie Hick (Sons Of Kemet) unfurling its luscious biome of ideas, Space 1.8 is set to be one of contemporary UK jazz’s key releases.

An absolute triumph of a debut, Space 1.8 is the utterance of Nala Sinephro’s fully-formed sensibilities; generous, groundbreaking and completely flooring.
