Time To Rearrange

Aaron Jerome - Time To Rearrange (BBE Music)


Aaron Jerome follows a long line of UK producers who make organic electronic music over a range of tempos that is both jazz tinged and soul-steeped. He also understands what it means to be ‘musical‘ and makes use of orchestral type instrumentation. His debut album has a fundamental British essence to it, due to the shape of Jerome’s works and his use of guest vocalists from the UK and elsewhere. As with most albums, certain tracks are stronger than others, but it’s hard not to be bowled over by efforts such as his beautiful cover of Terry Callier’s “Dancing Girl” and the deeply moving, Kathrin De boer assisted “Reasons To”. Time To Rearrange is a melancholic yet incredibly appealing long player from Aaron Jerome.
