If you have been following the lo-fi movement in the underground house scene for a minute, Jesse Bru is certainly a name that will be top of mind. Being one of the integral producers ushering in the new era, Jesse first caught our ear with tunes like his infectious and evocative Tonight that came out almost two years ago. After taking one listen to his work, one can tell that Mr. Bru has a knack for being able to select samples that perfectly go along with his own interpretation of hard-hitting, jazz-laden house melodies.
In his latest effort, the man from Vancouver has decided to pair up with the likes of French imprint Pulse Msc, who have been doing their part in cultivating the scene with prominent releases from Harrison BDP, Matthieu Faubourg, and Vitess. Titled That Feeling, this EP features 4 superb deep house tracks that the label says, “is an invitation in a journey which gathers many influences by its variety of samples used.”
We are fortunate enough to get our hands on the title track and share it with you today. After taking a listen, we wholeheartedly cosign with Pulse Msc’s summation of the tune. Throughout its entirety, Jesse manages to blend a unique mixture of hip-hop, jazz, and African vocals to create a vibe that’s original as it is eclectic – which is hard to pull off just given how saturated the market is with producers drawing upon African influences these days. And for that, we tip our cap off to you Mr. Bru! Well done!
To get your hands on the entire record, you can pre-order it right here. That Feeling is set to come out on 10/30.
