It’s getting cold in New York. It’s getting cold in my heart. The fucking pandemic hasn’t ended, it’s getting worse. My girlfriend got sick (not Covid), and I have whatever shit she got. It’s Friday morning. I’m writing this last minute. I’m still in bed.
BUT I AM ALSO LIT AS A MOTHERFUCKER RIGHT NOW BECAUSE THIS BASSLINE JUST TURNED MY SPHINCTER INSIDE OUT THEN WRAPPED IT LIKE A PRETZEL. GODDAMN!
We all know Jitwam (you may know him by a different name… a man of many aliases) and we all know his label TheJazzDiaries. Unless you have no head. If you have a stump you wouldn’t be up on this. But if you know you know the heat is always rising from these Brooklyn streets when a release hits.
ANYWHOOOO, today they’ve released a label sampler featuring an excellent cast of characters who’ve delivered songs traversing various shades of deep house. AND. THE. WHOLE. THING. IS. FIRE. I’m melting right now. I could write about each tune but bitch you know I ain’t got the time for that.
I do have time for one, and that’s gonna be the Close Counters Lazer Tag Flip of Zeitgeist Freedom Energy Exchange’s “Rendezvous.” You may have heard this bop on Bradley Zero’s Essential Mix. You may have not. Either way, you’re fuckin’ hearin’ it now yeah? Hear it good cause you deserve to hear good music.
This shit makes me want to don my finest Guayabera and chain smoke a few Cubans. Makes me wanna rent a tiny fiat and bust through the south of France. How does this shit make YOU FEEL THOUGH!? It’s 2021 fam this ain’t about me no more. Reach inside yourself and understand where this tune takes you. ARE YOU ELEVATING YET?
Forreal tho, what a gem. Steady chords, a spicy bassline, some fuckin’ squelching for good measure. Beam me up, Scott.
Grab the TJD Label Sampler Vol. 1 today via TheJazzDiaries Bandcamp page. You won’t be sorry.
