JAUZ releases comprehensive ‘The Wise and The Wicked’ concept [Stream]Jauzpic

JAUZ has released his highly anticipated 23-track project, The Wise and The Wicked just in time for Labor Day Weekend. The conceptually-driven LP sees the bass producer and DJ flex his muscles creatively, envisioning a dystopian world complete with a full storyline narrative to support his music. Delivered in four “chapters,” the story tells of a world where the wealth gap reaches its limit and two castes of the population emerge, pitting the ultra rich against the ultra poor under the guise of anarchy.

While JAUZ’s signature style at times has a darker edge to it, The Wicked sees him push the ominous side of his explorative stylings further. Featuring impressive collaborations from artists like Example, Kiiara, Krewella, DJ Snake and Ducky, the album follows a story arch with a rise and fall, ending in a climactic resolution. The release of The Wise and The Wicked follows the release of previous singles “Super Fly” and “Acid or Techno.”

For months now, fans have been gradually exposed to the depths of JAUZ‘s experimentation with gumptious genre distortions. Just one day ahead of his BITE THIS-housed The Wise and The Wicked album release, JAUZ has shared another striking bout of ingenuity, “Acid Or Techno.”

With acid bass interwoven in the track’s writhing fabric, coupled with unrelenting tech percussion, the song certainly lives up to its twofold title. The echoing, retro vocal cut is also a nod at the acid house, which has been making such a robust resurgence lately—while the carnal energy level is all techno.

JAUZ recently told Magnetic Mag that he was taken aback by the positive reactions the track has been eliciting from the jump: “I happened to open it up to play it for Fred (Snails), almost as a joke, and he was like ‘Wait, this is actually so sick!’ That seems to happen to me a lot, where I’ll think an idea I’ve written is dumb and it actually normally ends up being the songs of mine people like the most.”

He goes on to describe the track as somewhat antithetical to the rest of his forthcoming album, as well as “what I imagine the wicked would be playing in an abandoned warehouse at 5:30 AM as the building is burning down around itself.”

Recently, JAUZ revealed that the concept for the album will take a narrative format. The Wise and The Wicked‘s tracks are to be split under sub-headings, including The Wise, The Wicked, and The United—each carrying an intuitive aesthetic quality. For instance, “Acid Or Techno” unsurprisingly resides with The Wicked, while his laid-back collaboration with Kiiara, “Diamonds,” lies with The Wise.

Jauz & Snails – Motherfuckers

This post was originally published on this site

Few things announce intentions as well as a strategic use of “Motherfucker.” Keenly aware of this fact, Jauz and Snails named their gripping new collaboration “Motherfuckers.”

An eponymous sample drops all sense decorum in the first few seconds as the track’s tension builds. Unsurprising, given both producers’ status at the forefront of bass-heavy music, the drop itself manages to surpass its title in terms of grinding power and propulsive energy. It’s a welcome new addition to both’s catalogue, and another win for Jauz’s Bite This label.

DJ Snake and Jauz combine for the frenzied ‘Gassed Up’

A collaboration of the magnitude that DJ Snake and Jauz bring on their new track, “Gassed Up,” are incredibly rare. Similarly, some artists would want to keep things simple and let their respective fame carry the day. In this instance, however, both Snake and Jauz move out of their comfort zones for something that is sure to stand out.

The duo make it immediately apparent that they’re not afraid to push the tempo on “Gassed Up,” with an open intro setting the tone. A chunky bass, clever vocal chops, and bright synth stabs take the energy to another level before an ominous build frenetic, bouncing drop.

“Gassed Up” immediately stands out in both artists’ catalogs, and is set to take festival season by storm — to say nothing of influencing this summer’s tracks.

Jauz, YOOKiE, and josh pan team up for experimental ‘Dinner Chat’

Jauz-Yookie-JoshPan-DinnerChat

The trio of Jauz, YOOKiE, and josh pan make for a fascinating group on the surface, and their collaborative effort, “Dinner Chat” lives up to the intrigue. A diverse affair, “Dinner Chat” sees each producer stretch outside of their comfort zone while at the same time maintaining their signature styles.

A simple, whistled melody opens the track before a chopped vocal hook grabs the listener. A breakbeat build up — complete with 90s-inspired synth stabs — culminates in a rolling, experimental, moombahton-tinged drop. A second drop sees the triumvirate throw a curveball, with a half-time section more inclined to grooves than headbanging.

Released on Jauz’s label, Bite This, “Dinner Chat” is a fine example of three talented artists playing off each other to craft a unique track that is sure to stick out in a crowded market.
