PREP

Event Dates

Tuesday, 18 Jun

EartH, London

In 2015 the four members of PREP came together to cut deep grooves that mine contemporary R&B and electronica while taking inspiration from the soft, sheer sound of the late ’70s and early ‘80s. This love of modern production and classic songwriting united vocalist-lyricist Tom Havelock, keyboardist Llywelyn Ap Myrddin, drummer Guillaume Jambel, and producer Dan Radclyffe.

The freshness is a product of each band member coming from a different musical direction. Llywelyn started out writing opera; Guillaume moonlights as a house producer and DJ; Dan produces hip-hop, and Tom works as a pen-for-hire songwriter in the pop music world. With widespread critical support and radio love from BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, KCRW, and Beats1, the band is turning heads and bringing listeners to “a much-needed funk-fueled trip to a sun-filled beach,” according to The Line of Best Fit.

Earlier released tracks of 2020 “Love Breaks Down” (a jaunty track that recalls early Prince) and “Over” (reminiscent of a dark tropical evening with a seductive groove) featuring Norwegian electro-pop singersongwriter Anna of the North aren’t included on PREP’s debut album, but still justify head bops.
