'Mork Calling Orson' is Jehst's sixth album reaching a typically supreme standard of syllables and similes bearing a red-eyed hue. Featuring the tracks 'Daily Planet', 'Lonely World', the BBC 6 Music-playlisted 'One Horse Town', 'Wild Herb' and 'Autumn Nights'.
For the first show of 2023, the Pioneers Hip Hop Show shines a light on one of the UK's most iconic Hip Hop labels, YNR Productions.
Tuning out the street noise of classic 90s, Timberland-booted NYC, Jehst embraces his godfatherly role in UK Hip Hop on 'Lonely World'.
Philosophical, reflective, optimistic: Jehst as the mayor of 'One Horse Town' is the drifter returning to a higher plain. Warmth and a sense of community rise from brass band arrangements, mutedly yet poignantly playing to an innocently glacial melody, and a gospel-style choir whose quiet resonance achieves inner peace.
Regarded as “the best British rapper of all time” (NME) and “the UK’s most natural rhymer who simply doesn’t waste words” (Clash), Jehst’s career - long “at the forefront of UK hip-hop” (TheGuardian) - has spanned six albums and countless plaudits from broadsheets to tastemaker magazines.
