Breaking the mold before it’s even set. Nothing new for Jai Wolf, the Bangladesh-born, New York-raised, Skrillex-mentored electronic artist.
Since 2015, His “strange weird” single, the South-Asian-tinged “Indian Summer”, has conquered airwaves, DJ sets and hearts worldwide – propelling him to a “strange weird” kind of stardom.
Often mentioned in the same breath as Flume and ODESZA – Jai Wolf’s music has soundtracked everything from GoPro ads, American Idol, and Kobe Bryant’s final basketball game in the NBA.
He’s not gunning for the Top 100 DJ lists, though. His songs are crafted journeys rather than club bangers, and he signed to indie darling label Mom + Pop Music, placing himself alongside the likes of Flume, Jagwar Ma, and Wavves. The Jai Wolf sound: the sweet melodies of 80s synth-pop with the atmosphere and grandiosity of EDM, the intimacy and closeness of chillwave, and the thoughtful introspection of indie-rock. It’s a busy brew, but an easy listen.
“My music is for people who are desperately dreaming beyond where they are at right now—it can be the future, it can be the past. I want you to feel nostalgic. I want you to reflect on your life. I also want you to be inspired about where your life could go.”
