NEW SIGNING: SLY5THAVE


 

Sly5thAve is the project of multi-instrumentalist, composer, arranger and producer Sylvester Uzoma Onyejiaka II, whose sophisticated compositions are shaped by his faith in hip-hop, and deep understanding of soul and jazz. On 17th November 2017, Sly5thAve released his most impressive LP to date – ‘The Invisible Man: An Orchestral Tribute to Dr. Dre.’ The album was first devised as a benefit concert at the Wilshire Ebell Theatre in L.A. which was attended by Dr. Dre who took to the stage to thank Sly5thAve’s arrangements. Sly5thAve went on to refine twenty-three large-ensemble arrangements from the show on this recording which have been met with glowing praise, procuring support from Radio FIP (Selection FIP), radio play from KCRW, Gilles Peterson(BBC 6Music),NPR, Jazz FM playlisting, alongside online and print reviews from Downbeat Magazine, The Fader, Nosey and The Scottish Express.
