Before the full installment of JAWs collaborative project for Circus Company Midtown, let us whet your appetites with the Midtown EP featuring a kaleidoscopic handful of teasers. Contributing artists such as Canadian renegades Art Department, Berlin DJ/producer and Bar25 Alumni Britta Arnold, Dirtybird kingpin Claude Vonstroke, Hamburg scene staples Philip Wolgast & Benito Winberg and Berlin based duo The/Das, all lend their unique electronic footprints to the already unique and instantly recognisable voice and charisma of JAW.
Midtownf is all about the ambitious sound of an artist reflecting every shade of the world as he sees it, through collaborations with friends from every corner of the planet and even bringing his family into the fold. From bedroom setups to street recordings to professional studios, spanning melancholic folk, electro pop and apocalyptic R&B, this collection is the culmination of years Jaw has spent connecting with likeminded artists, challenging himself to use his unmistakable voice in different ways and placing the emphasis on having fun, whether the music be dark and obtuse or upbeat and flamboyant. Whatever the case, twenty different recording spaces with twenty different textures have ensured that no two moments on Midtown feel the same. The full compilation is due to drop on Circus Company late September 2014. You may know JAW already, you may not. An artist who has sung into the hearts of dancefloors the world over, JAW is probably best known for his electric performances as the frontman for French house wildcards dOP and their indiepop sideproject Les Fils du Calvaire.
