The Reference Library Recommends: PM Warson

One of the best pieces of music that really caught our attention this year was the 7” single release, “Don’t Hold Me Down” by PM Warson. A rare piece of black vinyl infused with authentic soul, R&B and Latin Boogaloo.

"Don’t Hold Me Down" perfectly captures PM’s reference points and inspirations in this super, short and sharp attack of dynamic music. Ray Charles, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly combined with a 60’s edge and a touch of Northern Soul, the track was featured in a short movie “Soul Boy” produced by Fred Perry earlier this year.

The new year promises an album, further singles, a video and some collaborations. We look forward to hearing what PW Warson has up his perfectly rolled, Jakes LDN oxford cotton button-down shirt next.
