Staunch anti-traditionalists Ebi Soda meet one of the most versatile producers and DJs in the game, JD. Reid – who flips “Soft Peng” into a bass frenzy on a new remix. JD. Reid is a critically acclaimed artist working across varying genres – grime, rap, R&B, jazz, electronic, popular music – and has collaborated with OG’s and new stars in the game such as slowthai, Novelist and Mabel.

“Soft Peng (JD. Reid Remix)” is the latest follow-up release to Ebi Soda’s highly acclaimed sophomore full-length album ‘Honk If You’re Sad’, a record described as “hard-jamming, mercurial beat-jazz for the internet-brained” and was praised by The Vinyl Factory, Clash, Jamz Supernova (BBC 1Xtra), Jamie Cullum (BBC Radio 2) and many more, including entering the Jazz Charts on Spotify. ’’Honk If You’re Sad’ stayed true to Ebi’s DIY foundations while bringing more ambitious experimentation, technical mastery and a stellar lineup of guest players, including Yazz Ahmed, Deji Ijishakin and Dan Gray.
