Jack J – Thirstin’

After making waves last summer with his critically acclaimed EP on Vancouver imprint Mood Hut, the Pender Street Stepper strikes solo again, delivering two more blurred grooves in soft focus.

Stumbling over its own rhythmical pace, ‘Thirstin” plods along an excitable clatter of sticks and claps. What keeps everything together however is the vocal, Jutson’s own, punctuating the track with single words strung along a delicate melody. As the drums collapse behind the echoing vocals, the piece ascends, diffusing into the atmosphere before quickly condensing into a solid groove once more.

While littered with sounds from different eras, the track has elements for everyone, allowing the dance-floor to access it from different angles, unified under his own vocals.

Thirstin’, along with B side ‘Atmosphere’, is released via Future Times this June.
