Jerome & Geselskap – what is it and how do I get it?
Jerome & Geselskap is the breakout studio album from hip hop soul singer Jerome Rex.
Work on the project started late last year, and was aided in part by contributions from a crowdfunding campaign similar to the Kickstarter model (www.kickstarter.com) that is so popular overseas. People who believed in the music could help make this dream a reality by pre-purchasing their CDs months before the product was ready. Their contributions went towards post-production and manufacturing costs.
The album explores the concept of how people are defined by their friendships and the company they keep. Musically, the sound is a combination of 90s-era boom bap rap, neo-soul and RnB, and boasts a wealth of featured talent. Guest artists vary in style from “rymkletsers” (HemelBesem) to soul crooners (Ms Lenda), and from poets (IO the Poet) to the folk/rock/fusion sounds of Frazer Barry (of Tribal Echo fame). Not to mention the turntablism skills of DJ HearinAid!
