Cristian Jermane 'Closer' – out now
Heatwave 7 EP – released 16 September 2013
UK producer, rapper and singer Cristian Jermane is back with new release – Closer - ahead of his forthcoming EP release 'Heatwave 7' due for release 16 September 2013.
Cristian's musical journey began as a youngster in London, after taking an attachment to his father's 'Motown 25' video and record collection, which began at an early age. To this day Cristian cites 70's and 80's Soul acts such as Prince, Stevie Wonder, and Marvin Gaye to be his greatest musical influences, as well as current artists such as Nas, Daft Punk, and Geenius to name a few.
Growing up in a musically influenced family; Cristian's second cousin Caron Wheeler was the lead vocalist of Grammy award-winning British Soul group, Soul II Soul. Another relative was a guitarist in Bob Marley's band 'The Wailer's and his grandfather played in the BBC Orchestra. Cristian's music is heavily influenced by his gospel background and therefore carries undertones of conscious lyricism. His EP combines styles such as Grime, Deep House, Dubstep and R&B, bringing an eclectic take on the UK urban sound.
Cristian had his first radio play from Trevor Nelson who gave '2 Much 2 Lose 4 U' a spin on his show. Cristian also gained the support from Jenny Francis of Choice FM who regularly played a number of his tracks including 'Don't Break' which she would regularly open her weekly show with for well over a year.
His debut EP 'Heatwave 7' is released September 16 2013.
