Let's check what's on JEIA's mind!
PS. I put these tracks in order from the lightest to the loudest, so I highly recommend you to listen in order!
1. June Marieezy - Fly (FKJ Remix)
- This song is my first introduction to FKJ. I love how his sound is very organic. You gotta see his live performances - go search for him on Youtube!
2. J.Cole - Apparently
- In my opinion, J.Cole’s sound reminds me a lot of my all-time favorite producer, Timbaland. Honest, groovy, classy, but still dirty. I love dirt in my sound :D This song deserves its well-earned Grammy.
3. Mura Masa, Bonzai - What If I Go
- The lo-fi drum sounds at the start catches me off guard. Eventually as the track goes, the sound gets brighter and the song gets catchier. Then I find myself putting this song on repeat.
4. Kehlani - Keep On
- Not enough word to say about Kehlani. I fell in love with this song in the first 3 seconds. Sick groove. Listening to Kehlani in general is like listening to the golden era of RnB (the 2000s!)
—club tracks start here!--
5. Full Crate - Big Booty Problem
- I love this track up until the point that I hate Full Crate for coming up with an extremely genius song concept. Very minimal, but they’re all the right sounds. Damn you, Full Crate!
6. NGHTMRE & Ghastly - End of Night
- I’ve been playing NGHTMRE’s tracks in my set, especially his pumping hard trap tracks. His sound and Ghastly’s matched perfectly. If bass house made love with trap, this song would be the lovechild.
7. Flava D - Wheels
- After being introduced with Flava D’s productions by DTX (hello Mas Arya), I fell in love. I pick this song out of all her tracks because the groove got me from the start. By the drop, it’s hard not to just move every fiber in your body. Also, don’t take my word for it because I have a major crush on Flava D. Girl got swag!
8. RL Grime, What So Not, Skrillex - Waiting
- Dammit I missed Skrillex so much since Recess and Jack Ü. This song is a really good cure. I think the collab of these 3 super-producer is equally spread throughout the track: vibe is dark as RL Grime, verse is floaty as What So Not, drop is gritty as Skrillex.
9. Kayzo - Kill It
- One thing that stole my attention is the heavy metal guitar riff at the verse. Seriously, the last time I dropped this on my set, I got people coming at my deck making devil horns. Also, tight mix and very clean wobble sounds.
10. Knife Party, Tom Morello - Battle Sirens
- I put this one at the end because this song is EPIC as eff. S**t man. The beginning makes you feel like you’re in Audioslave’s concert, then the build makes you want to head bang, and right at the drop you’re already dancing. F*****g crazy dynamic that this song has. See, I swear three times in one paragraph, that means this song is THAT good.
