Jai Paul – BTSTU

Happy Friday and with it comes a killer new track from Jai Paul.  This track starts off really quiet, so hang-in there for about 15 seconds.

Delicate vocals, dark throbbing bass, and diplo-esque beats adorn this track. Got this tip from Dan Black, via his tweet, “Dan__Black: RT @ads_b: The unknown UK producer that @dan__black has on high rotation: http://ow.ly/2chah

Also found this Dan Black quote from http://adambaidawi.com/blog, which is probably the best description of this track:

“He’s got something unique–it’s weird. Somewhere in between Burial and Prince: sort of dubstep, haunting vocals…really amazing. I think that kid’s going to end up being huge. I think it’s the first or second thing he’s posted.”

I agree with Dan completely, I have had this stuck on repeat for the entire morning.  Beautiful, sublime, and engaging — what more do you need?

Martyn – Hear Me

martyn

A little dubstep action for you from Martyn.   One thing I really dig on this cut is the use of house elements to propel the track.   Some dupstep is too much dub and not enough “step” for me.   This track can be found on Martyn’s debut full length album, “great lengths“.

Jamie Woon – Wayfaring Stranger (Burial Remix)

Dark, omnipresent, foreboding is the sound of Burial.   He lends his hand on this track from Jamie Woon.

Jamie Woon is a 21 year old singer-songwriter from SW London whose sound lies between the usually distinct genres of alternative rock and soul music.

The song, Wayfaring Stranger, is also know as Poor Wayfaring Stranger which is a folk/spiritual song about a soul’s journey through life.   This song dates back to 1816.

Jamie Woon – Wayfaring Stranger (Burial Remix)

Lryics:

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
A-trav’ling through this world of woe.
But there’s no sickness, toil or danger
In that bright world to which I go.
I’m going home to see my mother
I’m going there no more to roam;
I’m just a-going over Jordan
I’m just a-going over home.

I know dark clouds will gather ’round me
I know my way is rough and steep;
But beauteous fields lie just beyond me
Where souls redeemed their vigil keep.
I’m going there to meet my mother
She said she’d meet me when I come
I’m just a-going over Jordan
I’m just a-going over home.
I want to wear a crown of glory
When I get home to that bright land
I want to shout Salvation’s story
In concert with that bloodwashed band.
I’m going there to meet my Saviour
To sing His praises forevermore
I’m only going over Jordan
I’m only going over home
