Download :: Jay Electronica

So, this past summer I'm sitting in Lovey's car and we're rolling somewhere (I don't remember where) and she's of course listening to some new shit I've never heard before. This is the same girl who's put me on to hot new artists like Lykke Li, The Noisettes, and Kidz in the Hall. Needless to say she has great taste in music. Suddenly a string of songs start blaring out of the radio that gave me about 4 eargasms in a row. I demanded to know who it was and she replied, "Jay Electronica." At the time, there was no complete compilation of his work. Just a few songs floating around on the internet. I'm not the type of person that downloads artists' individual songs. I always want to hear everything at once so decided I would wait.

Fast forward to now: I'm browsing some of my favorite sites and blogs a few days ago and I came across a mixtape put together by WDIR Magazine of all Jay's work to date. I clicked download as fast as I could and I've been listening to it for the past few days to give it fair assessment. I LOVE IT! But you know that cause I wouldn't be writing about it if I didn't. Anyway, he uses a lot of percussionless film soundtracks as a background to his vocals in such a unique way and his abstract lyrical style is insane!!!

Do yourself a favor. CLICK HERE and download Jay Electronica's mixtape called "Who the F*ck is Jay Electronica?" Let me know what you think...
