Best Known for Composing Us3’s Smash Hit ‘Cantaloop,’ Wilkinson Debuts ALIBI Production Music Album ‘Jazz Hop’

LOS ANGELES / LONDON – October 29, 2020 – Building on its diverse, global roster of professional composers, ALIBI Music joined forces with Us3 producer Geoff Wilkinson for a new production music album. Wilkinson is best known for composing Us3’s hit single “Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia),” which was certified gold and reached No. 9 on the Billboard Hot 100 charts.

Wilkinson’s debut album for ALIBI fuses hip hop and jazz in equal measures. A modern take on that classic ‘90s genre, “Jazz Hop” artfully blends the two different styles in a way that’s organic and familiar, yet fresh and unique at the same time. These tracks will suit a diverse range of uses, from lifestyle TV programs to product commercials.

“My idea for the ‘Jazz Hop’ album was to create something that was clearly influenced by the classic early ‘90s hip hop jazz sound, but always retained a contemporary 21st Century feel,” explained Wilkinson. “I wanted to make something that was equally jazz and hip hop – a true fusion that would appeal to fans of both genres. A credible level of musicality combined with a neck-snapping, head-nodding vibe that was irresistible, was my goal.”

Wilkinson discovered ALIBI online and was struck by the quality of work being released by the label after listening to numerous albums. He also realized that he could fill a void in the catalog for his particular field of expertise – a mix of hip hop and jazz – and took the opportunity to create something specifically for ALIBI’s production music label.

ALIBI’s production music has been used in such projects as a promo for HBO Max’s “Stylish with Jenna Lyons,” a trailer for “Call of Duty®: Black Ops Cold War,” and a national commercial for TYLENOL, among thousands of others.

About Geoff Wilkinson
As the brains behind hip hop jazz act Us3, Geoff was catapulted onto the music world by his groundbreaking deal in the early ‘90s with legendary jazz label Blue Note. Given unprecedented access to sample their back catalogue, Us3’s first single “Cantaloop (Flip Fantasia)” and debut album “Hand On The Torch” sold in the millions worldwide. Us3 went on to release 9 albums over the next 20 years and toured around the world with an 8-piece live band.

Many of Geoff’s Us3 creations have been used for synchronization in a wide range of contexts, and Geoff has written the title credits for major Hollywood movies including “Get Shorty” and “The Flintstones.” He has also produced tracks for the likes of hip hop godfathers The Watts Prophets, and remixed classics such as Manu Dibango’s “Soul Makossa.”
