The month August has shot by at a record speed. With my life growing ever crazier I seemed to have missed a ton incredible new music. None seems to be as good as Jenaux's latest single ‘My Friend'. I know, I know – I am a bit late to the game on this groovy little record but man, upon hearing it I knew I had to get it featured.
Jenaux Revives A Timeless Sound
Electronic Funk was one the first genres which really pulled me into EDM. Early on I was a jam-band kid, hitting every Lotus and Disco Biscuits show I could. Through this scene, I discovered the music Pretty Lights and soaked in the glory watching Electronic Funk grow with the additions Big Gigantic, Griz and so many more artists popping onto the scene.
That being said, I eventually got a bit burned out the sound. At some point, a singularity funk and bass collapsed upon itself. While there was nothing wrong with how the genre developed, for me, it lost a bit its soul. This is why Jenaux and his recent productions have been really blowing me away. His tracks aren't about having the craziest drops or mind blowing bass, but rather they are about honoring the soulful timeless nature the era he pulls from for inspiration.
Jenaux – ‘My Friend'
In his latest release, ‘My Friend', Jenaux puts together a funky wild ride that tells a hell a story in just over 3 minutes. I cannot get enough how he features his samples prominently throughout the track. Adding in wonky bits to showcase the class the original productions rather than making them background elements to hype up the bass.
‘My Friend' is a remarkable tune that, in my mind, demonstrates better than anything else today that older music can have new life breathed into it with the addition a truly talented producer. Check out the single below and stay tuned for more exciting elements from Jenaux.
