Having spent most of 2012 so far further establishing itself as a global bastion of forward thinking electronic dance music, the Rwina label is changing things up a little with an EP from young Dutch producer Jameszoo. Check!!!
On ‘Faaveelaa’, Jameszoo displays the kind of brazen ingenuity that youth affords by drawing inspiration from dancehall before finding its edge to craft an entirely new take on the genre.
‘I You Cherrypearl’ sets the tone, and it’s firmly tongue in cheek. Eerie melodies bubble slowly to the surface until a hint of percussion signals the arrival of the riddim.
On ‘Mrm Aid S’ is the riddim is seemingly broken, its percussion and bass pulses coming at you from various angles while strange animals make noises in the back.
A lullaby done in a dancehall fashion might sound like ‘Doc Pipper, about as close as it gets with a childlike melody contorted over bass heavy kicks and rolling percussion with processed vocal chops. It’s perhaps the track that displays the most obvious dancehall influences yet still manages to sound unlike anything ever done in that style.
Things end on as delirious a note as they started with ‘Psitta Riddim’, coming across like a horde of robots kicking over a kindergarten.
Jameszoo’s debut for Rwina shows he has plenty of ideas and isn’t afraid of experimenting with them. Whether you bump it at home or in the club, ‘Faaveelaa’ is sure to surprise you and make you move in ways you never thought possible.
