Gecko TurnerGecko Turner is one of a new breed of international acts whose music is almost impossible to pigeon-hole. He grew up in Spain, learning English from the blues artists he loved and after a long musical journey, he started composing in a style that combined jazz, blues, samba, reggae, hip-hop, Arab music, and more into something all his own. Turner’s world is one where Lou Reed and John Coltrane rub shoulders with Fela Kuti and James Brown and one that the Spanish media dubbed Afromeño (rough translation: Afrobeatnik). But the sound owes as much to North and South America, the Caribbean, Europe, and the Arab continuum as it does to Africa. Soulful, funky and all his own, Turner’s music resonates globally, drawing support from the likes of Gilles Peterson and Dom Servini and is as likely to be heard being dropped alongside the latest releases from Tru Thoughts, Brownswood and Freestyle as the latest world music stars.

His fourth album, That Place By The Thing With The Cool Name is the first to be released properly in the UK and its exuberant worldliness looks set to find Turner a new audience for his psychedelic Afro-Soul stylings.
