Jaded styled themselves irresistibly into last year with their cult smash ‘4000Hz’ crashing into the Spotify Top10 UK Viral charts and picking up coverage on Consequence of Sound, Earmilk and Dancing Astronaut amongst other tastemakers. The new Black Butter Records recruits now unleash their first release for 2017 with ‘In The Morning’ with a straight down to business rework with GotSome.
The track continues to typify what Londoners Nari, Jordan and Teo are bringing to the scene themselves – an exuberant, DIY party ethos; a bold attitude that’s more about genuine enjoyment than cool bravado: a look at the single’s artwork will tell you that. With live dates confirmed this year that promise the kind of hedonism and abandon found atElrow or the old Ibiza residencies, this is real liberal London atit’s most mad and joyous.
Nari, Jordan and Teo met in the city from Iran, Italy and London respectively – immigrants personifying what makes London’s night scene so exhilarating in spite of the continuing club shutdowns. The guys mix all the progressiveness of a London upbringing with genuinely exciting, spiky dance-pop sounds: ‘In the Morning’ sticks a finger upto usual male-oriented narratives, instead choosing to underline the fact that women are perfectly fine getting theirs, thank you.
Jaded’s growing reputation for bringing the party have seen comparisons to Basement Jaxx and Simian Mobile Disco – after picking up heat from BBC Radio 1 DJs Mistajam, Danny Howard and Target plus selectors Diplo & Friends, Sian Andersonand Monki, this is a seriously unorthodox crew picking up tastemakers across the board. Jaded are that beautifully inescapable wildcard you need to see live. You’ll hear them first.
The ‘In The Morning’ GotSome & Jaded Remix has been a secret weapon for many the last few of weeks (be sure to get on that if you haven’t already), along with the equally big Original. Now we can drop the final remix of the set from Purple Pelican who twist things up on a dirtier tip,
