Babylondon is the brand new EP from N'fa Jones. Front man of genre bending Australian Hip Hop collaboration 1200 Techniques, N'fa has spent the last six years brining his solo vision to the nation.
Releasing his critically acclaimed album Cause An Effect in 2006, the solo debut featured production from Black Eyed Peas, DBridge, Roots Manuva & Dobie. Along with music video's directed by the late & great Heath Ledger.
Since then N'fa's travels have seen him living in London for a number of years, writing & performing in London's underground haunts. Performing everywhere from Cargo, Notting Hill Arts Club across to 93FT East, Strawberry Fields Festival & a guest spot on the illustrious Glastonbury. Smashing rooms & festivals under the guise of his UK project aptly titled No Fixed Abode they were awarded 'Best Live Impact Band' at the Camden Crawl Emerging Artists Festival.
Returning home late last year in preparation for the release of his new EP Babylondon, N'fa attributes his time in London as a major inspiration for this latest offering, jokingly referring to London as "Babylondon" after the fallen biblical city of Babylon, in modern times.
Following a cameo appearance on Drapht's 'Bali Party' & 360's 'Hope You Don't Mind', N'fa dropped the debut single from his forthcoming EP 'Wayooy' at radio in December 2011. Featuring long time friends Roots Manuva & M-Phazes, 'Wayooy' received a lot of positive attention from radio & press across Australia & gave a new sound of Hip Hop to listener's ears this Summer.

Now get set to wrap your ears around the full force of Babylondon. Offering four solid mixes of hip hop driven beats & cool melodies from 'Wayooy' & follow up single 'March On'. The EP also features '7 Seconds' ft Tyson McVey (Daughter of Neneh Cherry) - with production by First Man (UK) & an unexpected deep soul cut named 'Deeper Love' that will be sure to have you dancing in the sand - with production by Jimmy Napes (UK).
