“The Sindecut return better than ever with a tough, soulful, bottom-heavy delight of an album. A great mix of deep and catchy…” Mr. Scruff

Pioneering British Hip-Hop crew The Sindecut, featuring founding member DJ Fingers, and New York-based Geordie singer-songwriter Ijeoma, follow up their debut album ‘Late’ with an EP titled ‘Early’. This release showcases a collection of tracks reflecting the duo’s 20 years of collaboration.

Since joining the Tru Thoughts Family, the duo has been deeply immersed in recording new material. Speaking about the concept of the upcoming EP, Jess, aka Ijeoma, explains, “The EP is a timeline for me. Some of the tracks were written years ago and years apart. It tracks our journey.”

‘Early’ isn’t bound by a singular theme but rather serves as a chronicle of The Sindecut and Ijeoma’s two-decade journey together. The name reflects a sense of nostalgia and anticipation, encapsulating the duo’s past selves and future aspirations. Across tracks such as “Falling”, “Wrecks” and “Cool Your Head”, they explore a complexity of similarities and differences in production styles. Collaborating on this release is a testament to their musical timeline, spanning from early compositions like “My Mam Said” to recent creations like “Brother Lloyd” and “Get Over.”
