London producer Jake Milliner. Raised in a musical household and embroiled in golden era richness from a young age, Jake's spaced out, soul drenched sound has been building him a reputation as "one to watch" amongst core groups of boom bap fans over the past few years (including T-3 from the legendary Slum Village) he's also received support from the likes of Boiler Room, Clash and Afropunk. Jake has produced tracks for artists like Barney Artist, Hawk House, Bubblerap, Lord Apex, Zilo, Musiq Soulchild and T-3 (of Slum Village). With "Bernie Says" Jake himself steps into the spotlight for the first time. On 13 tracks Jake Milliner makes the transition from beatmaker/producer to fully fledged artist. His boom-bap roots are still intact on "Bernie Says" but the sound spectrum relies on jazz and boogie too with lots of heavy keys – courtesy of Jake himself and Alfa Mist who is guesting on the first single "Reminisce" alongside trumpeter Marcus Tenney. Some other key players from the London jazz scene are making cameos too on the album but have to stay un-credited for contractual reasons. On the vocalside Jake is joined by former Hawkhouse singer/rapper Bubblerap and long-time friend 25. The album enjoys radio-support from some key players on BBC 6 including Marry Anne Hobbs, Tom Ravencroft and Don Letts and has gained various plays on Worldwide FM and NTS. The artwork is based on works by London artist Stuart Ruel. The LP will be released in the beginning of December.
