22a label founder, flautist, saxophonist, producer and DJ extraordinaire Ed Cawthorne - aka Tenderlonious - has gained a reputation as one of the hardest working, most well respected and influential figures in South London’s burgeoning jazz scene.
Whether dropping sought-after deep house / broken beat 12”s on 22a, releasing via the likes of Ninja Tune, Brownswood, Yoruba, Far Out and Sounds Of The Universe or making inspirational sounds with his other band Ruby Rushton, Tenderlonious is one of the jazz renaissance’s leading lights.
He has helped turn the UK music scene on its head and shifted the focus back from aesthetic and sartorial posturing to live, real musicianship - alongside other key piers like Moses Boyd, Nubya Garcia, Henry Wu/ Kamaal Williams and Shabaka Hutchings.
Tenderlonious’ credentials in both electronic and jazz worlds are impeccable. He already has a Solid Steel Radio mix, monthly show on Gilles Peterson’s WWFM and plenty of NTS shows under his belt, whilst his productions have gained praise and plays from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Huey Morgan, Tom Ravenscroft, Lefto, Bradley Zero, Bonobo, Soul Clap, Osunlade, Alexander Nut, Mr G, Henry Wu, Chris Phillips, Tim Garcia and many more.
His highly anticipated debut album 'The Shakedown' featuring the 22archestra is due for release on the 15th June...
