Part love story, part history lesson, Fantastic Negrito’s extraordinary new album, White Jesus Black Problems, is an exhilarating ode to the power of family and the enduring resilience of our shared humanity.

Inspired by the illegal, interracial romance of his seventh generation grandparents—a white indentured servant and an enslaved Black man—in 1750s Virginia, the collection is bold and thought provoking, grappling with racism, capitalism, and the very meaning of freedom itself, all without ever losing sight of the desire and determination at the heart of the tale.

Born Xavier Amin Dphrepaulezz, Negrito grew up in an orthodox Muslim household in Oakland, CA. After a car cash nearly robbed him of his ability to play guitar, he began an unlikely redemption arc in 2015, when he won the first NPR Tiny Desk Contest. In the years to come, Negrito would take home four GRAMMYs, tour with everyone from Sturgill Simpson to Chris Cornell, collaborate with Sting and E-40, and found the Revolution Plantation, an urban farm aimed at youth education and empowerment.

“Over a burst of sunny 1970s jazz-funk and juicy bass, he delivers his stories in a haunting bluesy howl, soulful croon and throaty falsetto.”

Support from

Nat Oaks

Nat Oaks showcases an innovative brand of re-imagined hip-hop, with her music taking inspiration from Loyle Carner’s earnestness and the vibrance of Tyler The Creator.

From rural Gloucestershire, Nat Oaks has began to assert her dominance in the alternative hip-hop scene. 2022 saw the artist perform at events including Boomtown, Wireless Festival and on the main stage at Love Saves The Day, showcasing her infectious live show and adding to her warm UK reception. This was all ahead of her debut headline show at KOKO Camden, going down an absolute treat with an ecstatic London audience.

The attention she has already received from BBC Introducing, Wordplay Magazine, Notion and multiple other publications makes it “clear that [she] has a truly exceptional career ahead of her”, in the words of Fame Magazine.
