We're Just Waiting For You Now
‘We’re Just Waiting For You Now’ was Jon Kennedy’s first and only album for Tru Thoughts.
Already a live drummer and multi-instrumentalist before he even began tinkering with samplers, Jon’s take on downtempo breaks is a unique and highly personal one.
Combining elements of 20th Century jazz with sitar, ambient techno, live breakbeats, funky guitars, cowbells, cheeky sub-bass, abstract vocals, melancholy samples and a special guest appearance by a trombone-playing busker from Stockport, the music on ‘We’re Just Waiting For You Now’ is a document of Jon Kennedy’s tastes and experiences.
Mixmag “It’s top chill-out fare from Brighton’s best label”
DJ Magazine “This record will cause a few ripples among Britain’s beats-loving community”
7 Magazine “A polished purveyor of quirky, strangely likable sunshine funk”
Jockey Slut “A synergistic collection that is sometimes bittersweet, yet improbably chirpy at others. Worth investigating”
Muzik “Jon Kennedy is a master of of laying cool melodies over laid back but funky beats. A very good listen”
