Avid sleeve readers will know the name MATT JOHNSON – a key member of Jamiroquai . He joined the cat in the hat team in 2002 taking over the keyboardist role from Toby Smith .
For now Matt is branching out on his own with an infectious, retro feeling single ‘With The Music’. Helping him deliver are Derrick McKenzie (Drums) and Rob Harris (Guitar) both from Jamiroquai and between them they mix a heady, tasty, vocoded cocktail that is a large dash of Herbie Hancock, a glug of the Players Association and just a garnish of Shakatak . It really is catchy and it’s out June 30th on Splash Blue. We believe it’s the title track to an upcoming Matt Johnson album.
