Jarell Perry
White EP (continuous mix)

Jarell Perry has quickly made a name for himself over the last few months as one of the most promising young acts in R&B. A fixture in our Sunday Night Soul series, Jarell possesses unparalleled vocal range and flexibility that allow him to constantly explore new sounds and push the boundaries of his music. With the White EP that versatility is on full display. After one listen I can already count influences from Kanye West, MiguelThe Weeknd & SBTRKT–a rather diverse group that tells you all you need to know about the variety of distinct material this project has to offer.

The White EP is an entrancing ride from start to finish, with Jarell’s slickly rich, yet delicate vocals acting as the chauffeur. It’s the production of DJ HSVN that really paves the road for the charismatic crooner to flourish on, with a wide assortment of instrumentals rooted in the likes of alternative R&B, neo-soul, hip-hop, electronic and trap music. Through this EP the LA native demonstrates a maturity and understanding of musical complexities that many of his contemporaries lack. While there’s certainly room for growth, this might be one of the better projects in the genre you’ll hear all year. Do yourself a favor and stream the entire EP above, and then head over to iTunes immediately after to grab a copy for yourself.
