Within the opening bars of his debut EP ‘I Will Be Cold Soon’, it becomes very clear that 18-year-old singer/producer Jaime Isaac inhabits a space like no other emerging talent. While his voice may be flooring, his command of the piano totally arresting, and the delicate textures of his electronic production infectious, no one facet of his sound explains the singularity of what he does.

Instead, rather its the atmospheres conjured and the unchartered territories explored within each little marvel of track that comprise his unique vision. The space he creates is mind-bogglingly vast, and one where the brutalist greyscale of his native metropolis meets the warming slipstreams of his pastoral daydreams to alien effect. In his world near-choral incantations marry with minimalist jazz tones, post-rock layering and swaggering beats and couplets in a way that’s sometimes experimental, but always enveloping.

You can hear the avant-garde minimalism of composers like Philip Glass and Steve Reich, whose sense of space and adventure leave their mark across ‘I Will Be Cold Soon’.

Certainly there’s a street culture that runs throughout his sonics, from the foundations of Premier and Dilla, through to more evolved UK bass sounds like Mount Kimbie.

It’s easy and predictable to label this debut EP prodigious given its depth and his tender years, but what’s harder to pin-point and more exciting to consider, is if this release represents his first chapter then what could the rest of this story resemble.

The EP will be released on deluxe 12-inch vinyl and digital
