LA’s Jauz continues to feast on dance music with his bass house stylings, sinking his teeth in further with the simultaneously savage and soulful Deeper Love.
Premiered today by Danny Howard on BBC Radio1, Jauz’ Deeper Love follows his recently revealed collabs with Skrillex and Pegboard Nerds, but it’s his latest solo production that to date best exemplifies his blend of house and bass music.
In the wake of a stellar start to 2015, Deeper Love sees Jauz taking bigger risks. He incorporates three distinct styles blended together without changing tempo, opening with a slow-moving, minimal two-step build topped with Aretha Franklin’s vocal. After switching gears, he drops into his signature bass house section, which comes across with a veteran’s cool composure while remaining as dynamic and full as we’ve heard from him. But hold on; he adds a surprise breakbeat breakdown in the place of drop number two to close it out–a bold move but a no-brainer in retrospect, considering he just smashed one out with Skrilly, and another example of his ability to execute on unusual concepts.
Pick up Deeper Love on Beatport Sept. 18 from Spinnin’ Records.
