London’s Kamaal Williams is a gifted keyboardist, DJ, and producer known for combining his love of ’70s-style jazz fusion and funk with more contemporary hip-hop and electronic dance influences. Although he had played in various bands since the mid-2000s, including a two-year stint with dubstep singer Katy B, Williams first came to prominence in 2016 as a member of the jazz-funk duo Yussef Kamaal with drummer Yussef Dayes. Influenced by the ’70s albums of artists like Miles Davis and Eddie Henderson as well as works by acid jazz artists like Brand New Heavies, the duo garnered praise for its 2016 album, Black Focus. Since then, Williams embarked on a solo career, releasing his similarly cross-pollinated 2018 debut, The Return.
