In addition to pioneering his unique brand of ‘bacardi house’ and recently gracing New York with his incredible sounds earlier this month at Electronic Africa, DJ Spoko also runs a label called Ghetto Boyz Music.
His newest signee Jay Carson is a Pretoria native with a mission to deliver a fresh, new perspective to South African rap. After linking up with record producer and childhood friend Gustavo, Jay Carson began crafting his sound within a larger collective of local musicians known as PaperKlip.
At some point he was introduced to DJ Spoko and, together with Gustavo, Jay Carson completed his first EP entitled Futuristicart. The EP’s lead single “Me & My Niggaz We High” features a blistering, warbling bass-line with a drum cadence that’s somewhere in between UK grime and trap.
