You’ve got to tip your hat to Newcastle production dynamo Just A Gent, who is well on his way to international superstardom.
Still in his teens, the DJ continues to notch up both the accolades and the spins on radio stations across the country with his polished, dreamy electronic fare.
On this occasion, he’s teamed up with Melbourne singer Melissa Ramsay, whose cloud-like vocals float seamlessly across Jacob’s masterful, glimmering, futuristic soundtrack. It truly is electrifying.
“I tried to pluck this from the future,” Jacob explains. “I went into this track with future beats on my mind, it took a few minutes and I had that lead synth down and it all worked from there.”
And given it’s notched up almost 50,000 streams on Soundcloud (below) alone since its release on Friday, we smell another big hit. As does the team at Island Records, who’ll be releasing his debut EP in the not-too-distant future. We’re in.
