JAI NITAI LOTUS, the Montreal based MC/producer has his debut solo record titled ‘Something You Feel’, out November 6th. Jai has not just been the MC on this album but also assumed the role of recording engineer and producer [bar one track] all to manifest a fresh experimental style of Hip Hop. Drawing on samples, dark synthesized pieces, and off-kilter drums with meaningful lyrics to create new, soulful soundscapes that have a distinct JAI NITAI LOTUS vibe.
‘Something You Feel’ is a musical journey of truth, inner dualities about love, music, loss and gain. Jai recently released the first video from the project titled “Mingus Clap” with an outstanding vocal chant that is indicative of spiritual Jazz, over an contagious, hypnotic clap groove which has gone down a treat with the NADA BRAHMA readers.
The latest single is a gospel flair filled with organs and drums “Hard Times and Bless” (ft. Georgia Anne Muldrow & Declaime) which is free to download!
I listen to very little hip hop, but when I do, it has to be incredible, meaningful and moving … JAI NITAI LOTUS ticks all those boxes … check it out!
