Get Ready For Launch With Jetset [TMN Interview]

jetset
JETSET
FLIGHT

If you are a gamer, you may recognize the name Mr. James Geary. What you’ll soon recognize instead is Jetset. They are actually one in the same, however the latter is the name for a new venture by the gaming icon. Soon, we’ll be getting a full EP entitled Flight from him, but for now we have his lead single.

Of course, the lead single shares the same name as the EP. With Jetset, you can be sure you’ll get your fair dose of bass, which is just what “Flight” has onboard. So does the rest of the EP, but we can’t share that with you just yet. In its stead, we sat down with Jetset to answer a few questions we had to get the scope of this new project and what made him want to get this started. Enjoy the song – it’s a free download by the way – and read up on what is likely to be a momentous journey forward for Jetset.

TMN: What got you started in music?

J: I’ve been listening to music and playing instruments my whole life. It was as I dug deeper into the rabbit hole that I realized the true value behind the ability to express myself through art. I really love creating through as many outlets as possible and want to work through other outlets in the future too! It’s like, why limit myself to just making music?

TMN: You previously had a gaming channel on Youtube, is your music influenced by anything from the games you’ve played?

J: Inspiration works in weird ways and I’ve found that from games, it comes in a more emotional form for me. For some people, it may be a cool sample, but I’m more inspired by certain moods and scenes. I really tend to take more of a general mood or energy and write to that.

TMN: Why did you decide on “Flight” for the EP name?

I’ve always loved aviation and even wanted to be a pilot for a small portion of my childhood. For the first song, I was trying to find some announcer voice to start the EP but instead came across this cockpit recording. Things just kinda clicked with the name, and the EP had a theme over night!

TMN: If you could collaborate with three producers next year, who would they be?

J: I mean, I could hit you with some obvious ones like Skrillex but I’ll try and get a little more creative here. In the world of bass music I’d love to do something with Getter or Tisoki. Outside of that, I’d love to work with Thundercat one day. That dude is amazing!! Or break out my saxophone and do something with Kamasi Washington. I think that’s 5 total but oh well.

TMN: Speaking of next year, have anything planned already?

J: Not too much I can openly discuss. But I really want to step outside of the box more and just create whatever comes to mind. This EP is mostly dubstep but I really bounce between a lot of things and I want to showcase that. Fun fact, at the end of the final song there’s a melody that was supposed to be a seamless transition to a 5th tune. It was a super relaxing garage song that ended up getting cut. Who knows, maybe I’ll finally find a vocalist and it will see the light of day in a remix EP along with some VIPs and remixes from friends down the road completing it all finally. I do have a lot of music i’m sitting on that will be coming out throughout December and next year so I’m super excited for that!

Thanks for having me, I really appreciate all the support!

[Multi-Genre] LUMBERJVCK – Dendrology EP

lumberjvck

LUMBERJVCK is one of the premiere young bass producers in the game right now. There’s a reason he’s currently touring with 12th Planet to celebrate SMOG’s anniversary, and that same reason is why Bassrush decided to launch their label with his new EP, Dendrology.

Dendrology is a five track project that Bassrush pushed out for free to celebrate their label launch. Collaborations on the project include a song with Minesweepa, as well as a major – and I mean MAJOR – collab with Evol Intent and Twin Moons aka Le Castle Vania. With the first track, we get an Eastern influenced hybrid single that sets an interesting vibe for the rest of the EP outside the outro, which strays a bit from this sound. From here we get two tracks that share LUMBERJVCK’s more traditional, heavy sound; one that he played extensively at his Richmond show that I attended last week.

Then, we come to “Chapel Oak,” the massive single I mentioned earlier. Even if you don’t like drum & bass, you’re going to love this. There’s no escaping the high-octane energy that this one has. Lastly, LUMBERJVCK brings back the trapstyle sound with the closing song “Rosewood.” All in all, this EP does justice to LUMBERJVCK’s catalog, as well as the launch of Bassrush. Don’t sleep on getting this free project.

’LUMBERJVCK – Arjuna’
’LUMBERJVCK – Monkey Puzzle’
’LUMBERJVCK & MineSweepa – Dragon Blood’
’LUMBERJVCK, Evol Intent & Twin Moons – Chapel Oak’
’LUMBERJVCK – Rosewood’

[Future Bass/Trap] STEL LEO – Opal [TMN Premiere]

opal
STEL★LEO
Opal [The Music Ninja Premiere]

There’s nothing we love more than kicking off the day armed with a freshly banging premiere for our Ninja faithful. Stel Leo is a genre-skirting, Bermudian artist who has had releases with Team Supreme, Top Cats, TheMOB and Friends with Robots; and also played live alongside STWO and more tastemaking artists. Today the electronic style bender touches down on TMN with brand new single “Opal”, and our fire is glowingly stoked to share it with our lovely readers.

A crisply layed two-step drum beat patterns “Opal” before giving way into a luscious waterfall of thumping low-end, popping snare placement, and a swath of clicky percussive elements which all culminate in a sticky-sweet melody. Although it wields a highly synthetic sonority, “Opal” simultaneously feels very soulfully tactile and personal, while still brandishing a call-to-arms to get to the dancefloor. While we’re sure most of our U.S. Ninjas will be more concerned with the important item on today’s docket -the Presdiential Election or something like that, we heard- but for a little distraction, stream our premiere of Stel Leo’s “Opal” above.
