With a blissfully crippling sound to bring any electronically minded enthusiast to their knees, Jordan James is wandering around the city dropping hints of future bass, trap and house love. Bringing together a tropical tone shift to the future energy in dance music’s bass lines, this Wagga Wagga born breed of musical genii is unmistakable.
How good is music that pricks the ears and moves a few feet? Across the east coast, now based in Brisbane, Jordan lights up shows for the intimacy of the native electronic music bugs. From support on the Aston Shuffle to the core house beats on the floor for Dusky, the sound being distilled isn’t for the faint hearted with Jordan well and truly keeping the genre game tame. An advocate for bringing a plethora of sounds to the table, Jordan’s inspiration from Flume meeting the down tone of Bob Marley, provides the story to tell, where he marries uniqueness from this broad spectrum with his own sound.
Flagged by Triple J, Jordan James’ original piece in ‘Mahogany’ rippled Unearthed while a dropped remix for Odezsa ‘Say My Name’ has sparked a perfect ear perk in the likes of Just A Gent and Grmm, stirring attention in across indie’s music’s best discerning communities. On the Grmm tip, late 2014 sees the collaboration with Sydney’s electronically propelling artist with a hive of others in the pipeline bracing the industry with Jordan’s second EP.
