Jai Paul - Jasmine
Jai Paul quietly released ONE song via his Myspace page in the earlier part of 2010 – and that one song, “BTSTU”, rapidly spread like an indie wildfire. The underground popularity of “BTSTU” led to a recent signing on XL Recordings, home to artists such as Adele, M.I.A., The xx, Beck, Gil Scott Heron and The White Stripes (to name an illustrious few). Jai has been hinting that he will finally drop new tunes in 2012.
Finally, here’s something we all expected patiently, yet anxiously.
The visionary UK producer/singer/songwriter/human has followed up his seismic intro track “BTSTU” with a warped slice of sensual … let’s say post-modern R&B, with plenty of studio weirdness and pan and envelope filter to possibly justify the interminable wait for his full-length. “Jasmine” should sate some appetites, at least for four minutes and change. What a comeback.
