New Jeremiah Jae – “BlackMyth” and “Lost and Found”
Over the past week-plus, Brainfeeder’s in house mic killer Jeremiah Jae has taken to Soundcloud with a vengeance usually reserved for Flying Lotus collaborations. Jae has released 10 new tracks to be exact in an effort he’s calling Black Jungle Radio. The majority of the tracks feature Jae on MC duties although he stays behind the boards for YBP, Raja Black and F.A.B.L.E. cuts. While fairly hit or miss overall, Black Jungle Radio spans the gamut of Jae’s sounds and influences, ranging from the lo-fi funk of “BlackMyth” to the ridiculously smooth, Exile-esque “Lost and Found”. In fact, Jae takes cues from Blu & Exile (for better or worse) for the majority of the series. I say for better or worse, because Jae exhibits Blu’s hustler everyman persona on some tracks and is utterly lazy on others. Of course, Jae’s Black Jungle Radio isn’t represented as an album or official release like much of Blu’s low quality work. Jae certainly won’t be played on the radio, but maybe that’s a good thing.
