Jeshi will bring his headline UK tour to a close with a Manchester gig at the Deaf Institute next week.

The East-London artist is on the road following the release of the deluxe edition of his recent album Universal Credit.

The album followed on from his critically acclaimed 2020 EP Bad Taste, which led to collaborations with the likes of Celeste, Jim-e Stack, Obongjayar and Vegyn.  Since then has music was featured in season 4 of Top Boy and he picked up an AIM Award for Best Music Video last year.

Universal Credit similarly racked up a wave of critical support as it saw Jeshi engaging with the reality and honesty of how the most ignored and dehumanised in British society are viewed.  The subsequent deluxe edition features the new track This Thing Of Ours as well as live performances and a remix of Protein featuring Obongjayar and Westside Boogie.
