South London producer Jake Milliner drops his debut album “Bernie Says”.
Jake has produced tracks for artists like Barney Artist, Hawk House, Bubblerap, Lord Apex, Zilo, Musiq Soulchild and T-3. 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 also on jazz and boogie 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 uncredited for contractual reasons. On the vocal-side Jake is joined by former Hawkhouse singer/rapper Bubblerap and long-time friend 25. The artwork is based on works by London artist Stuart Ruel.
