Boomkat Product Review:
Time To Rearrange is the debut album by young London-based producer Aaron Jerome, who showcases his talents on an impressive scale with huge orchestrally-proportioned arrangements featuring a whole host of guest artists, from South African star Simphiwe Dana and Zero 7's Mozez. In fact, the Zero 7 comparisons are fairly inevitable: much of the album is characterised by the same warm, easy listening, 'nu-jazz' sound that made that band so successful in the post-Air coffee table climate. There's a fusionist approach to this record that would sit it comfortably alongside Jazzanova and the Sonar Kollektiv sound, delving into a kind of acoustic hip hop with rappers Yungun and Bajka, but perhaps more impressive are the tracks where Jerome leaves his collaborators outside the studio, making some very fine instrumentals - including the Four Tet-esque hidden bonus track at the end of 'Misunderstanding (feat. Kathrin deBoer)'.
