Hyp 271: Earl Jeffers

Hyp 271: Earl Jeffers

A talented Cardiff prospect goes back to his roots.

Earl Jeffers, aka Chesus, has been making big waves this year, having cut his teeth playing nights across Europe, as well as as releasing on influential labels such as Gerd’s 4Lux and Addison Grooves’ Lost in Translation, and having his records dropped by icons such as Skream, Mosca and Kerri Chandler. Last month’s EP Gloria, released on Doc Daneeka’s Ten Thousand Yen, is a vibrant tour de force of serene, summery house rhythms.

Jeffers’ Hyp mix perfectly showcases the sounds running through his broad array of influences, and is the perfect accompaniment to the vintage air of Gloria. Culminating in the timeless Louie Vega/Alexander Hope collaboration ‘The Elements Of Life’, the mix acknowledges the funky, disco-laced origins of the New York house scene, alongside the more straightforward (but nonetheless impactful) ‘Old Skool Jamz’ by Bugz in the Attic.

Gloria is out now on Ten Thousand Yen. Order it here.
