Jai Paul - "BTSTU" by Matt Bomarr

jai paul - "btstu" (download) [audio]

Jai Paul is a 21-year old from London.  This demo version of "BTSTU" consists of heavily-layered synths and drums, and as of now is the only song I've heard from him, but apparently there's an EP in the works.  The first comparison that comes to mind is sort of a falsetto Bobby Birdman. Jai is still "unsigned," but rumor has it that he's being scoped out by labels such as XL and Polydor.  A tip of the hat goes to my friend Matt Holt from Broken Figures for putting me up on him.  If this song is any indication, there'll be some good music on the way from this guy. myspace

Bobby Birdman - "Victory At Sea (E*Rock Remix)" by Matt Bomarr

From his 2006 12" single for "Victory At Sea". Fryk Beat/Audio Dregs founder E*Rock takes Bobby Birdman's mellow original version and turns it into an upbeat sing-a-long track. Bobby (Rob Kieswetter) has toured with Will Oldham, Hot Chip, Joanna Newsom, YACHT, Dirty Projectors, among others. He even remixed Young MC's "Fastest Rhyme" on last year's Delicious Vinyl anniversary release. He has a new album called New Moods, which recently came out on Fryk Beat.
