Flautist Jef Kearns is a rare talent. Featured in XXL Magazine for his cover of Warren G’s “Regulate.” An Amazon Japan best seller (alongside Janelle Monae) with his album of originals, Soulfisticated. Top 10 on the UK Soul Chart for a month with his recent EP, The Flute, and tweeted by the renowned Jamal Ahmed (WCLK, Atlanta “S.O.U.L. Of Jazz”) as “Probably the dopest flautist in the game right now!”
It only serves right that his first full production cover is of equally rare magnitude: the Beverly Hills Cop Theme “Axel F.” An instrumental that bested the usual “vocally dominated” charts for 19 weeks, reaching number 2 on the UK Singles Chart and number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the US.
With production by Douglas Romanow (producer for Kinnie Star, and engineer for Justin Bieber and Tyga) and mastering by Sterling Sound’s Chris Gehringer (Rihanna, Drake, Wu-Tang, Madonna) Jef Kearns gives Axel F new breath by embracing elements of Reggaeton and Dance Hall.
