Jaw Jam - The Truth 12" EP [TWXTRY001]
TRY Industries is proud to announce the debut vinyl release by New Jersey producer / DJ Jaw Jam. The Truth EP will mark Tuff Wax Records’ eleventh release and first 12” pressing. The three tracks explore Jaw Jam’s signature style; soft sine synth-work, unorthodox structures and elusive vocal samples that strike a balance between a deep reference to the club atmosphere and the producer’s engagement in jazz and improvisatory music. The EP plays in a way that references the arch of an effective DJ set – the title track offering an upbeat and stripped-down ode to house anthems, followed by the deranged instrumental two-step track “Late Nite,” and closed by a sultry bass-heavy jam, “The End (Music Is the Answer). Throughout, Jaw Jam’s unique style of phrasing, chord use and vocal editing makes for an engaging and cohesive listening experience.
To mark the importance of its first 12″ release, TRY Industries has collaborated with Aberdeen based boutique label Tuff Wax to produce a single-sided 180 gram pressing with a stunning laser etched design on the flip, packaged in hand-screened recycled card sleeves. The vinyl release is backed with a digi-EP featuring a freestyle inspired electro-pop remix with all the melody you’d expect from label honcho Lockah, and completed with a screwed opium-house rework from fellow rising Aberdonian ¥oin.
Vinyl comes with downloads for all 5 tracks in high quality MP3 or WAV format.
