A revitalizing & fascinating combination of jazz & grime, vocals perform the sole rhythm through the bulk of the piece, while gentle-but-complex chordal piano movements stroll down a gray street, & twinkling melodies harmonize with a strong-but-far-away alto aria, full of soulful inflection & chromatic legato. Poignant, plaintive, & eloquently poetic, the lyrics carry the song away, upward to radiant heights. An ode to an ex-love, J Littles reveals depths which are often inaccessible, opening up with the natural, metronome-perfect timing of an MC who seems to have spent many years rapping over 140+BPM breakbeats; a truly inspiring style.
‘Sometimes when you f#ck up, there ain’t no turning back‘ – an introspection weighing heavy in the lives of many at the moment. Follow further, & pre-order the new J Littles x Claude Money album, ‘Joyce‘, below:
