Description:

Boasting a diverse and varied sound palette made up of synth pads, eclectic sample use, pulsating R&B-infused beats, and resonant vocal work, Mr. Jukes is the solo/collaborative project of Bombay Bicycle Club’s Jack Steadman. With the band announcing they were going on indefinite hiatus in early 2016, it wasn’t long before the Bombay Bicycle Club members began exploring their own avenues of creativity and songwriting, with Steadman announcing the creation of Mr. Jukes in 2017. Exploring his love of jazz, funk, and soul, the first taste of Steadman’s project was the track “Angels/Your Love,” a collaboration with neo-soul artist BJ the Chicago Kid. Describing the horns in the track’s chorus as a representation of the “pure awe and excitement,” that the singer/songwriter experienced when exploring different ideas for the project’s debut release, he instantly knew that Mr. Jukes needed to be an all-around collaborative project as opposed to a purely solo project. Stating that the collaboration was the first for the project’s debut effort, the single went on to become BBC Radio One’s Hottest Record in the World. The following month, Mr. Jukes dropped his single “Tears,” featuring Atlanta-based R&B singer Alexandria. His debut album, God First, arrived in July 2017 via Island Records and featured appearances from fellow British singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas, American funk/soul vocalist Charles Bradley, and American soul/gospel vocalist Lalah Hathaway. ~ Rob Wacey

Sample Rate: 44.1 kHz / 16 Bit

Description:

Under the name A.CHAL, Peruvian-born singer, songwriter, and producer Alejandro Chal offers a moody, atmospheric take on electronic R&B with lyrics half-sung, half-rapped, and often switching between English and Spanish. Chal’s family moved to the U.S. when he was four years old, settling in Queens, New York. He began rapping at a young age and soon began experimenting with beats with a neighborhood friend. Relocating to Los Angeles in 2010 to pursue a music career, Chal self-released his debut EP, 2013’s Ballroom Riots, which caught the interest of Sony ATV, who signed him to a publishing deal. His 2015 single “Round Whippin'” found widespread exposure when Beats1 DJ Zane Lowe gave the song a world premiere on his show. It was an effective boon to Chal’s career, and by the year’s end he’d racked up numerous critical accolades. “Round Whippin'” was included on his 2016 debut full-length, Welcome to GAZI, introducing his hazy, nocturnal sound to an even larger audience. Following a collaboration with French producer STWO, Chal began issuing singles in advance of his next LP, ON GAZ, which arrived in June 2017. ~ Timothy Monger
