J-E-T-S, the collaboration project between Machinedrum and Jimmy Edgar, teamed up with rapper Theophilus London for their newest single, “Come Alive,” the final release of their ZAPS EP due to land in full on December 6.
Theophilus London bounces along thick 808 kicks and a casual woodblock melody. The industrious percussion sounds are cemented with a metallic hit that sounds like a stake being driven through a foundation to round out the garage trap piece. Wait until the end, where London shows off his dreamy crooning.
J-E-T-S’ forthcoming ZAPS EP is a six track project that’s being released through Innovative Leisure with features from Zack Slime Fr, Roses Gabor, City Fidelia, Tearz, and Muzi. The duo began releasing music in 2012 and again in 2015. This year really saw the collaboration project in stride as they released their debut 12 track album, ZOOSPA.
It may only be August, but it certainly isn’t too early to start thinking about Halloween plans.
The perennially freaky holiday always aligns with the underground aesthetic, and SoCal already has its first dark and dastardly lineup locked and loaded, compliments of Minimal Effort: All Hallow’s Eve.
Topping the bill for the event’s fifth anniversary is the endlessly talented polymath, Bonobo, hosting his own Outlier stage. Just below is the UK groove machine Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs alongside Machinedrum‘s collaborative project with Jimmy Edgar, JETS, which will serve as a welcomed departure from the expected house and techno roster.
Over the last five years, Minimal Effort has booked some of the most revered DJs on earth for their annual Halloween spectaculars. Boys Noize, Lee Burridge, Anja Schneider, and MK are just a few of the heavyweights who have made appearances on the All Hallow’s front, and considering the party’s host, Underrated Presents, is still free from any conglomerate backing from potentially domineering parent companies like its similarly curated competitors, the event is primed for harrowing and uninhibited Halloween antics.
