Jeshi has today dropped brand new track ‘COMING DOWN’ – the second taste of his ‘Bad Taste’ EP, which has also been confirmed for release on April 3rd via Because Music.
‘COMING DOWN’ is another engrossing cut of storytelling from Jeshi, showcasing the hotly-tipped East London rapper’s commanding presence and eclectic, atmospheric production to potent effect. The 7-track ‘Bad Taste’ EP also features Jeshi’s acclaimed latest single ‘SAME SONGS’, plus a collaboration with BRIT-Award-winner Celeste (the pair previously teamed up on Celeste’s ‘Summer’).
An ambitious, multi-dimensional young talent, Jeshi grew up in Walthamstow in the early 2000s, with a childhood soundtracked by the likes of The Neptunes, Eminem, and Erykah Badu (alongside later game-changing influences like Toro Y Moi, and Lana Del Rey’s ‘Video Games’ visual). He began writing lyrics and rapping amidst his mates at the start of secondary school, with a love of the DIY-spirit first manifesting in a home studio that literally consisted of a Nintendo Wii USB microphone from a karaoke game plugged straight into a desktop PC. Still, Jeshi was born with the kind of wry confidence that sees no reason not to make a £50 bet with a girl that he’d be a millionaire rapper by the time he was 16: whilst he may have lost the bet, Jeshi has instead grown up and found his voice.
Across a couple of formative projects thus far – notably 2017’s 7-track EP, ‘The Worlds Spinning Too Fast’ – Jeshi has emerged an enigmatic artist of disarming candour. Having already collaborated with Mura Masa and toured alongside slowthai and Yellow Days – not to mention appearing on COLORs, Boiler Room and NTS – in 2020 Jeshi looks set to step out further into the spotlight; all in his own distinct, uncompromising style.
