If ever was the time to listen to music that both elevates and relaxes you, that time is now. With the current situation we have all found ourselves in – a lockdown that is both anxiety inducing and depraving us of dancing with anyone outside our own households – people have been turning to platforms and artists to help fulfil their musical needs. The debut EP from multi-instrumentalist and music producer Jonah Cracknell Daniels aka Unfoldance, Beginism does just that.
Composed from his own vocals and instrumentation, the six-track EP could not have come at a more perfect time. The diversity from one song to the next could fulfil any mood – whether that’s enhancing a sense of productivity, or a soundtrack to simply sit back and enjoy.

Drawing influence from the likes of Aphex Twin, Bonobo and The Cinematic Orchestra, Beginism’s slightly minimal yet perfectly balanced arrangements create atmospheric results that are testament to Jonah’s own virtuoso talents.
Having taken a little over a year to complete, it was time well spent, as Jonah effortlessly blends elements of nu-jazz with his unique production style.
We are thrilled to premier the third track on the six-piece EP – and one of our favourites – The Size Of The Sun. Drawing you in with a delicious boom bap drum pattern, by the time the guitar riff begins, it’ll have you hook, line and sinker.
