JAW & CASSIUS - ROSE LEAVES 16/10/2016

+

A unique project gathering nineteen tracks from nineteen prolific producers including Claude VonStroke, Brodinski, Cassius and Art Department centred around one inimitable singer; JAW. ‘Midtown’ is the ambitious sound of an artist reflecting on his vision of the world, through collaborations with friends from every corner of the planet. You may know JAW by name, but most will know him by voice. As the frontman of French house wildcards dOP and their indiepop sideproject, Les Fils du Calvaire, JAW has blossomed into one of the most distinctive performers in a scene where few dare to cross the barrier of the DJ booth. From bedroom setups to street recordings to highend studios, spanning melancholic folk, electro pop and apocalyptic R&B, ‘Midtown’ is the culmination of years JAW has spent connecting with likeminded artists, challenging himself to use his unmistakable voice in different ways. Placing the emphasis on having fun, whether the music be dark and obtuse, or upbeat and flamboyant, the result is nineteen different recording spaces with nineteen different textures, ensuring that no two moments on ‘Midtown’ feel the same. Extract from this mixtape, « Rose Leaves » get Cassius & JAW together for a track. A music video has just been made by 2 young directors from Belgium, Clara De Gobert and Ariane Loze. This is the 9th from "Midtown" in 2 years, and a remix from Born Dirty will be released on Way Way Records (for free download, as JAW did for each music video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WWUpapyPCqc&feature=youtu.be
