Jody Wisternoff announces new studio album ‘Nightwhisper’
A legend of Bristol’s dance music scene, Jody Wisternoff announces his brand new twelve-track LP ‘Nightwhisper’, out May 1st. His first solo album in eight years, ‘Nightwhisper’. It follows Wisternoff’s 2012 debut LP ‘Trails We Blaze’, and comes alongside the release of the hypnotic title track and lead single ‘Nightwhisper’.
A formative figure in the UK rave scene. Wisternoff first made his name in the early ’90s. Before cementing his position as one of the UK’s finest talent-spotters and DJs as part of the Anjunadeep label family. He co-curates the chart-topping annual compilation series.
Written primarily in 2019, ‘Nightwhisper’ is a deeply personal album born out of a time of introspection for the Bristol producer. It follows the death of his father: “It was a time of conflicting emotions for me… I suddenly found myself appreciating the simpler things in life in a way that I had never done before. But, on an equal note also questioning mortality on a level that is only possible after the passing of a family member.”
The intimacy of the album is quickly conveyed in the opening track ‘Morning U’. It features the spoken home recordings of Jody’s father above a touching melody. Exploring the full spectrum of emotion, the lively progressions and lyrics of ‘Lately’ and ‘Reverie’ provide an optimistic contrast to more melancholic numbers ‘For Those We Knew’ and ‘Nightwhisper’.
‘Nightwhisper’ is out on May 1st on Anjunadeep. You can stream the first single ‘Nightwhisper’ HERE
