There are many things that make Sons of Kemet a unique proposition, not least the London jazz combo's unique musical make-up (saxophonist and main man Shabaka Hutchings is joined by a tuba player and two drummers). There's also the small matter of their music, which goes above and beyond the traditional confines of jazz. On 'Your Queen Is A Reptile', Hutchings and company go even further, delivering what one critic described as "party music with a purpose". In reality, that means a selection of scorching tracks rich in dueling drum-work, booming tuba basslines and fizzing sax refrains, many of which touch on a combination of heavy Afro-jazz, spiritual jazz, New Orleans brass bands and even the guttural pulse of British bass music. Impressive stuff, all told.
