Jai Wolf is incoming. The 23-year-old NYC-based producer has already had a thrilling 2015, and he’s only just getting started. Not only has he enjoyed a serious co-sign from Skrillex – who set the internet aflame after plugging Jai’s remix of his track ‘Ease My Mind’, but he’s also been signed to Odesza’s own label Foreign Family Collective. One of the first signees to the new label, his first release ‘Indian Summer’ is a beautiful, twinkly blend of playful vocals and lush ambience, slowly building up to an ecstatically rich HudMo-esque drop.
The artist is set to head down under for the very first time this month, bringing his sweet beats to the sunny shores. We wanted to get to know him a little better before he sets down, so we asked him to share a few of his favourite albums, fast food joints, Pokemon characters and more – enjoy!
