Jodie Abacus was raised in South East London, Britain — the borough of Lewisham, to become exact. Through his radio DJ dad, he was subjected to a broad selection of designs. This evidently up to date his strategy. “I’M GOING TO BE That Friend” and “Great Sense,” two singles he released in 2015 on family members label, zestily blended early-’80s post-disco R&B and vocalist/songwriter pop. They sounded just like the function of the perfectionist who sights Hall & Oates and D Teach using the same amount of reverence. Zane Lowe spun the previous tune while he was still a DJ using the BBC. By the finish of the entire year, Abacus was planned to try out his 1st headlining gig in early 2016.
