Commercial success and recognition has been a long time coming for this modest young man from South London, but at long last it looks like this year is the year for Aaron Jerome. His debut EP for BBE came out in July, and the album, the cunningly titled 'Time To Rearrange', will surely soon follow in 2008.
Aaron has been cutting his teeth for a while with remixes for established artists like Roy Ayers, Bugz, Zap Mama and (his mate) Nitin Sawhney, but it was his remix of Nicole Willis' 'Feeling Free' that really got this young man noticed.
Having wowed the underground with his single on Wah Wah 45s, 'Man Troubles', and having appeared on the acclaimed CDR 'Burnt Progress' compilation, this boy is now ready to fly. His super smooth production skills earned him a deal with BBE and we can now all look forward to a stunning selection of songs that have been on repeat on my CD player for longer than I care to mention.
There are also more remixes to come, with a stunning break beat re-work of Pete Rodriguez for Fania out about now (as part of the Fania DJ series) and remixes for label mate DJ Vadim, Richard E, Scrimshire and Ninja monkey boy Bonobo to follow.
The second single for BBE, 'Late Night Mission'? a humorous tale of trying to reach a gig in time ? featuring Yungun, is out in September, and there are more side projects, including an instrumental hip hop thing called AJ's Dilemma, and an amazing African highlife cut under the moniker The AJ Rhythm Orchestre.
