The first album from Jehst – Billy Shields to his mates – in six years, Billy Green Is Dead, is due very shortly. Colour us excited.
We feature lead track 44th Floor here, produced by The Maghreban, which fuses dub rhythms with more traditional hip-hop and house beats. The album follows our protagonist Billy Green and 44th Floor finds him at his lowest ebb.
The title comes from a Gil Scott Heron LP and provides inspiration throughout as Green forges a path through a diffident and uncaring world.
