One oath sworn by Hello Skinny – founded by Sons of Kemet drummer Tom Skinner – is to create improv music that doesn’t sound improvisational. Inspired by New York’s late ‘70s disco boom, and its mingling with hip hop, R&B, punk and the avant-garde, this ensemble represents an equally open-minded approach. It’s as if UK jazz, Jersey house, R&B, hip-hop, footwork and Arthur Russell-minimalism all go skinny-dipping together.
