In 2016 Jamire Williams introduced the world to ///// EFFECTUAL - the masterful avant-drumming album conceived, recorded, and produced across multiple planes of specific studio environments and percussive configurations. Jamire's solo strength is felt upon the first splash of a cymbal and the exploratory Carlos Niño is credited as an essential producer here. ///// EFFECTUAL enlists the talents of Chassol, Miguel Atwood-Ferguson, and GB - all remain close colleagues with perfect appearances for this highly-nuanced solo debut on Leaving Records. "For me personally and for where I am artistically, this is a supreme statement piece. It's more than a record for me," explains Jamire. "This is pure art in raw form. I've said this many times but as a drummer I see myself as a painter. I see colors, shapes, even strokes within sonic palettes. ///// EFFECTUAL evokes all these sentiments to me as it is striped down yet still vibrant. It's meant to push all that it encompasses; composition, conceptual art, and of course the drums."
