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.

It’s been a few months since a production act named Tin Jonic caught my attention. Hailing from Israel, the duo melded earthy folk and progressive house on their song Road Less Taken, quickly reminding me of some of Avicii’s recent hits. On new song The Bird, which features some fabulous vocals by guest artist Jasmine, they go in a completely different direction. The Bird is a sweeping electronic pop, future bass, and electro house ballad that sparkles radiantly. The mellifluous hooks are infinitely contagious and highly addictive.
