Currently residing in Zurich, Switzerland JAS CRW have celebrated successes all over Switzerland, Germany, Italy and even Mozambique while they have spent two months in London, recording and developing their music. The trio also partly recorded their single, ‘Honey’ (also taken from the upcoming EP) in Jamaica at Naomi Cowan’s studio, which is rising quickly, currently earning them the most streams to date. The three initials “J-A-S” stand for the first letters of the artists’ names James, Aristoteles and Sandjay and the upcoming EP was produced by Ketelby James (CH) in collaboration with Meek (DE), and featuring the voices of rising Nigerian artist Dotman, and Jamaican award-winning artist Naomi Cowan.
Serving as a small hint of what the listener can expect from the rest of the upcoming EP, ‘Report (prod. by Jamie Rodigan)’ strikes the sweet middle ground between mellow and a hard, underlying freshness. Producer on the track, Jamie Rodigan, is the son of famous BBC Radio 1 presenter – David Rodigan.
Exploring the troubles and thoughts that come with loneliness, the song takes some old school aspects of early hip hop using them to highlight the difficult topic.
Speaking of ‘Report’, JAS CRW says:
“Having spent more than half a year on the hard disk before the project actually got finished, report had a little heavy birth. Although the framework for the beats and parts of the lyrics were mostly set with a heavy dancehall beat, there was still something missing to further work on it. After sending the demo to Jaime Rodigan it came back way different then expected. It’s mellow and hard but comes with a fresh and modern breeze. And that was the missing part to polish this track that talks about the troubles and thoughts that come with loneliness.”
“Greetings From” is out 28 August, 2020, via Starter Gang.
