Catching Flies is set to release new single ‘Yu’, a dazzlingly jazz-hip-hop production featuring a transatlantic rap collaboration between the UK's Jehst and US's Blu (of Blu and Exile fame).

"This was a bucket list tune! I listened to Blu’s album ‘Below The Heavens’ and Jehst’s ‘Return Of The Drifter’ constantly throughout my teens and early twenties - they were both really influential albums for me… so I’m honoured that they were both up for jumping on the track. Coincidentally my favourite tunes of theirs both feature references to rain (Jehst’s ‘People Under The Weather’ and Blu’s ‘Dancing In The Rain’) so it seemed fitting to pay homage to this by sampling them both at the end of the track".

Catching Flies’ music draws from a wide-ranging palette of influences including jazz, soul, hip-hop, house and electronica. His debut album ‘Silver Linings’ was released in July 2019 and was hailed as "a soundtrack to summertime" by The 405 and awarded Album of the Month by Future Music who described it as "a brilliantly eclectic record…a moving journey that will last long in the memory". Clash Magazine praised the LP’s "killer beats" and "artfully orchestrated introspection" whilst London In Stereo praised its "exceptional production". Other coverage for the album included The Guardian, Complex, Dazed & Confused, Nowness, and Indie Shuffle with radio support across BBC Radio 1, 6 Music, Worldwide FM and more. Artist support for ‘Silver Linings’ has come from the likes of Bonobo, Jungle (BBC Radio One Residency), George Fitzgerald and Lane 8.

Jehst recently featured on Loyle Carner’s Mercury Prize nominated album ‘Yesterday’s Gone’ and Blu has worked with the likes of Madlib and Danny Brown to The Roots and Slum Village. Jehst headlines London’s Jazz Cafe on 8th November with a full live band with more dates in Bristol, Leeds and Manchester. Blu begins a headline tour of Europe in November including dates in Belgium, the Netherlands, France and Germany.
