All Music Guide:
Nicknamed Mr. Soul Blender because of his smooth, soulful remixes, producer Aaron Jerome was heavily influenced by the first record he ever bought, De La Soul's 3 Feet High and Rising. He was raised in Cambridgeshire, England, and attended Westminster University, where he ended up taking a music production course with classmate Kevin Mark Trail. Trail would go on to write "Eastern Eyes" for Nitin Sawhney's 2003 album, Human, while Jerome got to do the remix, setting off a barrage of remix requests. Work for the likes of Roy Ayers, Bonobo, DJ Vadim, Nicole Willis, and Zap Mama kept Jerome away from creating music under his own name until 2005, when he released the single "Man Troubles" on the Wah Wah 45s label. He would then land on BBE with his 2007 EP, Dancing Girl, and then early in 2008 the label released his full-length debut, Time to Rearrange.
