I'm (Mr. Beale) a singer/songwriter/producer based in London.
Please contact for a demo link.
Mixing field recordings collected on walks with a tonne of knotty rhythms and hooks, the tracks often feature my mums clarinet. From a choral/classical background I jumped into a four-piece bedroom disco band while featuring on deep house and soul producers’ Demuja, Gratts & KaySoul tracks. My independent style really came together on a solo residency in Lapland in the Arctic. The severe isolation and dreamy landscapes shaped new instrumentals as I began to try and combine elements of my sound piece practice with jazz/pop vocals. Of a big assortment, influences include Aphex Twin, Nia Archives and jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald... with a pinch of 00's icon Lily Allen ;).
I've featured on artists tracks : Demuja, Gratts (flip by Alex Kassian), KaySoul and with band Palafico Honey. Dan Steward, (Geo Taguchi) (Guitar), Tom Capaldi (Piano + Production), Tom Nevile (Guitar).
We've released with labels Midnight Riot Records, Editorial & Dansu Discs.
Review of Nothing Sweet EP - "House, Hip-Hop, Jazz, and everything else under the sun. With traditional instrumentation leaning on classic pop & disco blended with modern production techniques, Palafico Honey (fka Cappa & Daniel-San) are a true musical reflection of their generation."
