    Pan Amsterdam in conversation with Agent J

    25/10/2018 Duración: 01h17min

    The elusive Pan Amsterdam landed in Manchester a couple of days back for what was only his second gig – but not his first rodeo. Leron Thomas, the real life aka of the drawling lyricist, has his own rich musical history, some of which we dive into over the course of our interview which we chose to conduct (wisely or not, you decide) over food in Chinatown. Pan Am recruited Tacoma, Washington beatmaker/producer Mr.Shn (pron. ‘martian’) to provide the soundtrack for the tour, big shouts to him plus Matt at Def Pressé for facilitating our meeting, and all the people who bought wax at the gig after succumbing to my sales patter. Join Us as I steal his sweet and sour sauce, chat career, his good friend Malik Ameer Crumpler, thatmanmonkz, Madison Washington, opportunities, Bilal, Erykah and corruption in jazz.

Later this year First Word will release a 5 track EP based around 90 Degrees. --- Listen to and buy Yazmin's music at: Twitter: @Yazmin_Lacey Facebook: /YazminLaceyMusic --- In Yazmin's words: "'90 Degrees' is about that time of the day / night when there's a shift in pace and energy. When you decide to lock off from the 'outside' world and create your own atmosphere, take some time to give thanks for what's breathing love into your life and smoke off the fuckeries. Everyone needs a little routine for self preservation."
