Today at Spinnup we celebrate a new release from the sensation that is Jax Beats and his feel good anthem ‘Good Mood’. Accurately described as having a sound “soother than a freshly shaved watermelon”, Jax’s DIY blends inspiration from his favourite producers including Tom Misch, SG Lewis, KAYTRANADA and prxz.
Mr Beats cut his teeth at a very early age, producing in his Suffolk bedroom since the age of 16. “I self-taught myself by watching YouTube tutorials and experimenting with software. Soon after I began, logic and Ableton became my version of a PS4”. Jax’s undying passion for music production has taken him on a 6-year long journey to craft his unique “groove-soaked” uplifting sound. As accomplished as his sound is, Jax knows that the learning never stops and is currently studying a Masters degree in Commercial Music, producing for a variety of other artists as well as creative projects with collaboration at the core.
Having released his “summer sun-infused” debut single ‘Chills’ in May with Spinnup, his second single ‘Older’ blends a low-swung Hip-Hop groove with intricate Jazz-inspired guitar and Soulful vocals into a catchy, undeniably head-bobbing tune. This exciting run of single releases is planned to continue throughout 2020 and 2021, unsurprisingly picking up support from BBC Introducing.
Good Mood is a feel-good, uplifting head-bobbing groove featuring the incredible Akira Kai. Released in the middle of lockdown 2.0, its’ aim is to bring the summer vibes back when people need it most, taking inspiration drawn from the likes of Mac Miller, Tom Misch and SG Lewis. The catchy, groove-soaked feel of Good Mood transports us to a better place of sunshine, blue skies with a drink in hand… hand delivering that Good Mood (lord knows we need it more than ever).
