Brijs is back with a clever rework of Jai Paul which has resulted in a huge new video and a magnificent new electronic release! It’s been awhile since we’ve visited with the UK based producer, but prepare to strut it to his slick psychedelic disco banger Jasmine, on which Brijs utilizes the submerged melody of Jai Paul’s enigmatic 2012 demo and re-purposes it for a dance-floor ready torrid swooning affair.  “I can’t speak for Jai,” says Brijs, “but for me this song came to represent insecurity in two relationships with people who were way out of my league. I wanted to frame that bittersweet place between the flattery of the attention from that person we are infatuated with and the anxiety of believing they deserve better. The song,” adds Brijs about the sentiments he expresses in a near-euphoric take, “speaks to an underdog in love.”  Jai Paul meets Jamiroquai on the glorious groover, with a copious amount of Jungle and Her’s modern soul allure, too. Keep up with Brijs on his website, here.

Brighton producer J Tropic tackles some Jai Paul on his latest, dishing out an intoxicating rendition of Jasmine at once snazzy sweet and sensory zapping. J Tropic’s cover is a future funk dash through an ornate jungle of sound, its fine nuances taking on life of their own, springing, lurching, chattering, and skittering lavishly. The effervescent brisk cover reminds me of Ben Khan, who is very likely inspired by Jai Paul, too. J Tropic’s cover comes ahead of an EP of original material dropping soon.

Red hot remix alert! It’s rare to hear a remix of Jai Paul (or anything of Jai Paul, really), but Str8 Outta Mumbai gets a huge makeover by New York production duo BenZel. They take the track down a notch, giving it a slow and groovy droopiness, laced with skittering beats and haunting ambiance. Sensual and heady, the sensational remix will hypnotize and enthrall.

Germany’s WKND is back with a sultry tune titled BTSTU (Don’t Fvck With Me). As before, he takes other artists’ music and redesigns them to stellar results. On BTSTU, he works with the original, written by Jai Paul and covered by Niia. The new jungly, deep bass version is unimaginably hypnotic and SBTRKT like.

While many of us are on the edge of our seats waiting for new material from Jai Paul, his brother and oft collaborator, A.K. Paul, has given us reason to celebrate. So Good, a collaboration with London newcomer Nao, is A.K. Paul’s first official track (with his name on it). So good, indeed! The production is intoxicatingly Paul-ish with the bluesy guitars and riffs. A.K. Paul’s vocals, along with Nao’s, make such sweet harmony. Once again, it’s proven that musical genius is likely hereditary. The brilliant tune is Nao’s second release, her first being recent sexy, bewitching electropop debut Back Porch, which you can stream below.
