Press Release

After years working mostly behind the scenes, Dave Okumu is now stepping into the spotlight with a debut solo project. Already one of Britain’s most respected and sought-after songwriters, producers and musicians, Okumu has collaborated with an array of artists, including Arlo Parks, Radiohead’s Ed O’Brien, St Vincent, Joan As Police Woman and Tony Allen, Jessie Ware, Grace Jones, David Lynch and Adele. He is also the founder, singer and guitarist of Mercury nominated band The Invisible. Okumu releases his first full-length offering, ‘Knopperz’, via Transgressive Records. The wholly instrumental album unites hip-hop, jazz and experimental electronic music. Partly a homage to J Dilla’s classic ‘Donuts’, the record is also inspired by, and uses elements of, friend and pianist Duval Timothy’s album, ‘Sen Am’.
