With a catalog of about 15 tracks released in 2012, Jaw Jam proves to be one of the most prominent artists of the new generation of producers. Will DiMaggio, his real name, was first noticed by LFTF with whom the 19 year old beatmaker released his first ‘Untitled’ EP about 6 months ago. His unique sound consists in the recurrent use of a synthetized slap bass over an airy minimalist ambiance filled with abstract rhythmic structure. He demonstrates a brilliant application of the pitch bend on classic R’n’B vocal chops accompanied by detuned synths and manage to create a soulful atmosphere out of it.
Anyone that was into the early James Blake stuff like CMYK and the few Harmonimix releases, this is definitely for you. The future classic I am presenting you is a forthcoming 2013 release on Tuff Wax entitled ‘The Truth’.
