The Sindecut & Ijeoma

Released: 1 Aug 2023

Label: Tru Thoughts

Pioneering British Hip-Hop crew The Sindecut (featuring founding member DJ Fingers) and New York-based Geordie, singer-songwriter Ijeoma share jazz-inspired single “Lucky”, the origin track for their upcoming debut album ‘Late’ – released on Friday 1st September.

“Lucky” has a rich jazz and big-band feel at its core, melding double bass and cinematic horns into an epic montage, with a swagger that soundtracks the streets of New York. Talking about the new song, the duo say: “It was the first song we wrote for the album, so it will always be special for us. We were testing out working together remotely. It just worked, so we built on that momentum and created the album.”

“Lucky” features DJ Fingers’ trademark larger-than-life drums and Ijeoma’s magnetic vocals. The single follows “Stand Tall”, an infectious slice of breakbeat street soul and The Sindecut and Ijeoma’s debut release on Tru Thoughts, marking the start of a new chapter for the duo.

Since signing with Tru Thoughts, The Sindecut & Ijeoma have won plaudits from the likes of Don Letts, Craig Charles (BBC 6Music), Mr Scruff, Bill Brewster and many more. ‘Late’ is the cumulative outcome garnered from a 20-year creative collaboration and vision between Karl (The Sindecut/DJ Fingers) and Jess (Ijeoma) and is being released as a super limited edition, hand-numbered, run of 500 vinyl, never to be repressed (in any format, variation or colour) ever again.
