A while ago I used to make hip-hop beats under the name CitizenXain but one day I decided to abandon that name and try something new. I’ve been evil ever since, but the other day i made this and it reminded me of how I always wanted to sound as Citizen so im giving it away!
Jaw Jam, the american with a distinctly London sound.
Im very impressed with this guy, his beats are extremely well thought out and are pure vibes all round. He has that 140bpm swing down to a tee and his work is very musical, just check out his chord progressions. The only negative one could point out is that his sound basically is “James Blake” with a hint of “Mount Kimbie”. Thats not necessarily bad thing in most peoples eyes but i’m not sure everyone is ready to accept that Blake has essentially pioneered a new sound……..or two. REGARDLESS JAW JAM is doing it correct!! Check out mans Soundcloud for his sounds with some free downloads and ting.
Heres a few choice selections
So i head this tune from my friends Family TingZ, I liked it enough to ask for the stems so i could attempt a remix . I wanted to make a little riddim that kept the soul element to the tune intact. Peep the result !!!
These guys went back to back for a Redbull music academy session in madrid. Thank fuck Boiler room was there to capture it, because its a monster! Individually they are two separate acts.
