Discovery: Jackson Mathod

Jackson Mathod is a British artist who creates traditional jazz with a modern twist.

By Graeme Smith

His new track The Park is a meditation on a experience of taking hallucinogens sitting in an Amsterdam park and finding a moment of peace in an often confusing and contradictory world in which we find it difficult to find a place. It was the pure joy in this track that really caught my ear. Bright brass meets uptempo drums, electronic synths and twinkling keys. It’s the type of track that compels you to get out your seat and bounce around.

Jackson Mathod is at the vanguard of recreating jazz for the modern age and I think those who usually say they don’t like jazz will find a lot to like in his music. Check out The Park below.
