Ninja Tune will release Jay Daniel’s debut album via their Technicolour imprint on November 25.

At just 25 years of age and with standout releases on Theo Parrish's Sound Signature and Kyle Hall's Wild Oats, as well as the launch of his own record label Watusi High, Daniel has fast risen to be one of the leading artists in the next generation of Detroit producers.

Across Broken Knows' nine tracks, Daniel utilizes his signature keyboard runs and live percussion—recorded through a multitrack mixer in his mother's basement—to give it a more human quality, resulting in a refreshingly raw, standout debut.

Broken Knows is the third full-length on Ninja Tune’s Technicolour imprint, joining suberb albums from Levantis and Hieroglyphic Being, as well as EPs from Florian Kupfer, Legowelt, Nathan Melja, NY*AK, and U.

You can hear a track from the album below.
