Currently spinning its way round the world and causing a commotion. On the back of these two great singles Emo delivers us his debut album „This is my Home" giving it to us with 13 exceptional tracks all with a rich mix and variety of downbeat, jazzy sounds and reggae riddims 'launching pure soul back onto the dancefloor. The man from Copenhagen who regularly impresses audiences with his Low Pressure Soundsystem, which delivers easy going midtempo dub rhythms all coated with moving soul vocals. „My music comes direct from the Heart. Even more importantly when I sing", says Emo about the spiritualistic vibe of his vocal abilities.

Emo created this fresh new album "This is my Home" in co-operation with top-notch Danish musicians, artists and producers, combining guitar, drums, bass, percussion, keyboards, and horns with that great voice. Whether in the groove of minimal soul like Peven Everett's or D`Angelo's or in the dubswing thing like Horace Andy and Lee Perry, „This is my Home" captivates the listener with every track. In doing so Emo, who also played in a jazz group as a teenager and developed and nurtured his musical talents, pays tribute to many of the artists that influenced him along the way, such as Sly & Robbie, King Tubby, Sly & the Family Stone, Johnny Guitar Watson and Al Green However never satisfied with just the retrodub or soulfunk - that's not his way. Emo also incorporates other musical styles like the dark downbeats of Massive Attack or the pure disco soul of Grace Jones. Through careful consideration and refinement, Emo produces a new club sound that is truly amazing, adopting effortlessly his voice to every twist and turn in style. This flexibility was obviously a contributing factor when artists like Boozoo Bajou (Stereo Deluxe), Nuspirit Helsinki (Guidance Recordings), Les Gammas (Compost Records) were eager to collaborate with Emo on the album. Check out the Rhodes lines by Kasio (Nuspirit Helsinki) on the jazz monster High in the Sky, the words and good vibes dropped by Daddy Ous (Nuspirit Helsinki) on the Gotan Project-like "I Want my Love", and the flavour of Djosos Krost and Les Gammas on „This Is My Home" and First Time Experiences.

Live on stage, Emo presents a six-member soul-dub-downbeat extravaganza and delivers to the world a dubspectacular that is currently the best that Northern Europe currently has to offer.
