Lauren Laverne, who featured "Deaf Ears, Blind Years" as her Fantastic Beats track: "Absolutely beautiful", “glorious”.

In catholic lore, Saint Jude is the patron saint of lost causes; however, his musical namesake is far from that. Saint Jude has overcome trepidation to create highly focused work that teems with bright colours, shimmering textures and raw emotion at every turn. His vibrant second EP, Bodies Of Water, is out physically and digitally 16th April 2021, with the teasing of his debut album on the horizon. Alongside this EP marks the beginning of a partnership between his long-term UK label and collective Slow Dance Records and US label tmwrk Records (Grady, Molly Payton, Herizen, Onyx Collective).

For an artist as many-layered and sonically acrobatic as Saint Jude, every new release is somewhat of a surprise: the South London-based producer Jude Woodhead moves rapidly from strength to strength. Sonically, Jude’s music is intricate, chameleonic; his talents as a producer were inspired by sample-based greats like The Avalanches, Madlib and Four Tet, so there’s always a richness and variety to his sounds. Influenced by club music and jazz, there are also nods to contemporary masters like Radiohead, King Krule, Mount Kimbie, Jamie XX and Nicholas Jaar.

There’s a unique energy to the way he works, which could be a symptom of his forced departure from making conventional dance music; during his late teens, Jude developed tinnitus which prevented him from being able to go to clubs, gigs, or play live. Rather than killing his passions, it made him far more focused, taking his sound away from the strobes and vast spaces of club settings, and into the confined spaces of his own bedroom.
