jａｒｊａｒｊr will be releasing his debut EP via Radio Juicy on August 12 and he’s just given a first taste of the project.
‘Free Parking On Sundays’ is set to be “a departure from the ways of old”, across six tracks it will be an “aural accomplice on your Sunday morning drive”. That second part is a pretty accurate way to describe the Cork producer’s music if you’ve never heard it.
He specialises in laid back instrumentals and more recently has collaborated with Dublin artist Kojaque, with one of the most widely-loved link up being on ‘Bubby’s Cream‘.
Check out what j a r j a r had to say about the upcoming record below.
“The EP is comprised of six tracks, each documenting the critical stages of thought that ensue following a heavy Saturday night. ‘Wake Up Call’ coaxes you from your covers, with an ethereal introduction. What follows is a rush of energy, joy and confusion as you reminisce and reflect upon the happenings of the night before.
“Taking the bull by the horns, you begin your journey with ‘U Turn’, the false naivety in thinking that your actions will bear no consequences and that all is well.
“Guilt takes a hold in ‘You Call it Madness’, deep in thought you narrowly avoid crisis in ‘Close Encounter’. The hustle and bustle of the city snaps you back to reality when you witness a ‘Quandary on Wandesford Quay’. Finally, you find peace. Forgiving yourself and the night gone by. You feel ‘Earthed’ and are ready to start fresh, embarking upon new adventure.
“Navel gazing is healthy, but not too much. So be kind to yourself and learn from your mistakes.”
