I initially heard about this Jae Genius guy through his multiple collaborations with Onoe Caponoe and I was well impressed with the quality of his productions, having credits on tracks like Milkyway 1311 and Mirror on the Wall which were both highlights of Onoe’s first album. After looking into the guy some more though I found that he does some rapping himself and has some quality tunes.
His soundcloud is packed with unreleased tracks and a good few of ’em are available for free download, and on top of that he’s got an album up for free download on his bandcamp page called Forever which has some right gems on it. Its on Forever that he really starts to build on the footwork sounds that you could hear him of experimenting with earlier on, this time round though he wears his Chicago influences on his sleeve with the track MSB – Blueberry Jukecakes going into some full on 160bpm madness.
The Forever album finishes on a well nice remix of the King Krule track Easy Easy, and if you’re into that kinda thing check out his equally peng version of Out Getting Ribbed on his soundcloud. Jae has already announced that he’s been helping out on the next Onoe Caponoe album and is collaborating with other guys all the time, posting up literally a few tracks a week as of late. Definitely one to watch for the future.
