Best of 2013: JSTJR

JSTJR was one of the more exciting prospects to gain traction in 2013. At a time when so many were tired of the big room EDM sound, the styles of zouk bass, moombahton, and whatever you want to call this 100BPM craze were popping up the world over, and no matter where you were from, Boston’s JSTJR seemed to be a constant. In the last year, he’s released EPs with Generation Bass, been touted by Enchufada as an artist to watch in 2014, to getting support and praise from a number of the scenes finest, including Mad Decent, Skream & Benga, and many, many others. And for good reason. Dude’s just talented, and knows how to eek out those gems of sound into his productions.

When it came time for us to find someone to flex for the 100BPM / twerk / bounce/ whatthefuckdoyoucall it sound, JSTJR was the immediate choice. As you’ll hear, he has a great ear for the tracks that kept many heads turnt throughout the year, with many of his peers making appearances (including G-Buck, TropkillazCorrupted Data, Notixx, Milo & Otis, and many others). This sound is actually more loose than people realize; you can do a LOT in the 100BPM zone, but today, in this moment, we just want you to bug the fuck out. You’re welcome. And if you’re sleeping on JSTJR, you’re playing yourself.
