Listen to: JR Jarris featuring Dayla, "Control"
It's been five months since San Diego-based producer JR Jarris has dropped a track, and frankly, that's five months way, way too long. All is forgiven though, as Jarris finally ends the drought with the soulful bounce loosie "Control," released late last week.
Co-produced with Dayla, "Control" contains all the components we've grown to love from JR's music: tattering percussion interwoven between shuffling hi-hats and natural congo rhythms, all moving and breathing in unison above a bouncing house bassline. On vocals, JR provides a perfectly flipped sample of Zhané's "Request Line," sped-up and cut enough to remind us of the kind of soul that made us fall in love with Soundcloud in the first place. It's music made to magnetize your feet to a groove, a groove unmistakably signature to JR Jarris.
Listen to the track below and also catch JR Jarris live at our next Warehouse Takeover with Sosupersam and J. Robb on October 12th.
