Having spent the past year building upon his acclaimed production work on debut EP Cold Blue (2014), and mas- terfully crafting remixes for the likes of Hermitude, One Day and Jane Tyrrell, March 6 sees the release of Jayteehazard’s newest opus, Red Shift.
With several high profile hip hop production credits to his name (Hilltop Hoods, Briggs), his solo work is marked by a much more electronic focus. Mixed by Diplo collaborator and Grammy-nominated engineer/producer Franklin Rodríguez aka El Medico, Red Shift sees him employ his trademark heavy-hitting percussion, hook-laden vocal chops and soaring arpeggiated synths, expertly glued together by glorious and booming subsonics. Simultaneously, it sees Jayteehazard step into warmer musical territories—with the soulful vocals of Fred Leone on ‘Seen’, the delectable vocal percussion on ‘We Do’, and the vibey, delicate piano on ’Solis’. Jayteehazard unites organic and electronic sounds with supreme precision—his nuanced sample like instrumentation sets him apart from his peers, injecting complex dynamics rarely heard in electronic music.
The ‘Red Shift‘ EP is out March 6 on Elefant Traks. Available on limited edition red & black vinyl and via iTunes, you can pre-order the vinyl now.
Jayteehazard will be on tour with One Day this April for their ‘Many Hands’ tour.
