SOUNDCLOUD WRAP: Just A Gent
Young buck JUST A GENT is really taking the Dance scene by storm. With an impressive back catalogue of original hits and remixes, this producer just keeps going from strength to strength. He shared with us his top ten picks on a site that he is known to dominate in our SoundCloud Wrap feature.
Letting us know that the following is in no particular order but rather “Just ten pieces of art that I absolutely love at the moment and that I really need to share with you guys,” JUST A GENT gives us a glimpse into what makes his music taste tick.
“These 2 friendly American producers have blown me away. The synths and guitar samples in this tune are incredible. They are currently sitting on the most original material I have heard in a long time, watch their space.”
“Who hasn’t heard of ZHU these days? This anonymous prodigy has a hell of a style and I love it. His track Faded topped charts all around the world but this track right here is my favourite by far. I may or may not be remixing this for him… who knows?”
SLUM VILLAGE ‘Fall In Love’ (Moody Good Remix)
“All I could say is the first time I heard this was like “woah”. It is beautiful. I wasn’t familiar with Slum Village nor Moody Good before I heard this dropped in countless sets. Such a huge song. Wow.”
ALISON WONDERLAND ‘I Want U’
“Currently my mums favourite tune. Such a jam, I’ve been a huge AW fan since I saw her live from the mosh at Groovin The Moo last year. She is awesome.”
MR CARMACK ‘This Morning Was Funny’
“Mr Carmack just dropped 4 tracks for free that are all game changers although this one here caught me because personally I think it is the best track title of the week. Huge track, check it.”
ELK ROAD ‘Losing Sleep’
“This track is an absolute jam. Elk Road has been killing it lately remixing for the likes of Charlie XCX. I got the lucky honour of hanging out with this legend and smashing him in a game of FIFA.”
CHROME SPARKS ‘Marijuana’
“This track is over 2 years old now, but I cannot stop playing it at least once a week, it is just too good. If you haven’t heard it , please listen to it. It will change your perspective on life… and weed.”
$ATURN ‘Contrary Affair’ Ft. S.E.D.
“Everyone that follows the Just A Gent project knows that I am close with my good friend $aturn. I have watched this kid grow and he is now one of the best artists in the Chill Trap scene. I feel like a proud brother. “
MIDNIGHT JUGGERNAUTS ‘Cedoption’
“One of the best songs I have heard this year. Such a unique sound and the vocal is incredible. I heard this one a few times on Triple J before I really picked up how great of a track it is. Make sure you have an open mind, it is incredible.”
PORTER ROBINSON ‘Flicker’
“Good lord, Porter dropped his latest teaser track before the release of his debut album ‘Worlds”. I heard this in his BBC mix and it is such a cool, unique, weird, random tune. I love it.”
