Werkha is the project of Manchester based musician and producer Tom A. Leah. With his debut EP, “Cube & Puzzle” (Cool Kid Music) in late 2012, his refreshing style gained him over 300,000 video hits and widespread tastemaker support. In addition to BBC 6Music play and Worldwide blog coverage, Gilles Peterson also picked an upfront track, “Sidesteppin’ feat. Bryony Jarman-Pinto”, for a Brownswood Bubblers compilation. Festival sets including Latitude and Dimensions, and regular spots at the likes of Fabric, all added to Werkha’s profile; and a remix for Dutch Uncles’ single “Fester” (Memphis Industries) also helped to introduce his production style to the masses.

Only recently discovered this and am asking myself why I had never heard of Yussef Dayes in particular... live this whole album. Such musicianship and a fresh/modern take on classic jazz forms. Massive respect to the musicians Pilot Fish
an odd fusion of beauty and bizarre that reinforces both ideals in a jarring, understated resplendence. If you are dropped blindfolded in the midst of this record, you'll find your way home along a new road.
Its impossible to choose 1 track The whole Album is 🔥.. I love respect & truly appreciate this band. They are both extremely gifted & most definitely belong alongside each other. They made my last 2 years. First time seeing them live in London on the 19th May 2021. I have all their albums now. Bless you both neviah
