In 2014, we first heard of Bengali-born, NYC-based producer Jai Wolf when Skrillex re-issued the young producer's bootleg remix of "Ease My Mind” on his OWSLA label. Ever since, Jai Wolf has been working on his original material; his shimmering debut single "Indian Summer," released on ODESZA's Foreign Family Collective, showed a promising start for Jai Wolf's transition from a DJ to an artist.
Today, Jai Wolf is back with new track "Drive," featuring Kamtin Mohager from The Chain Gang Of 1974. While seemingly atmospheric and brooding in the beginning, Jai Wolf's collection of sparkly synths and expansive percussion transforms "Drive" into a pulsing, cinematic anthem. If "Indian Summer" was the song that you blasted out of car windows during sunny summer days, "Drive" is the song that accompanies you on late night cruises down the highway.
"I wanted to write something that was simultaneously vulnerable and anthemic," Jai Wolf told The FADER over email. "When I got the vocals back from Chain Gang of 1974 I was floored. Kam did such an amazing job on the song and we're excited to finally share it with the world."
Jai is currently on his first North American tour. View dates below.
