New LiL JaBBA – “Skates”
As a recent inductee into the vaunted Teklife crew, Brooklyn-resident Alexander Shaw aka LiL JaBBA has been receiving quite a bit of shine in recent months, shine that was solidified with the brilliant Scales EP on Tom Lea’s Local Action imprint. As both a producer and visual artist, Shaw maintains an impeccable ear for texture, working highly emotive concepts into his often hyper-speed dance concoctions. Self-described as an “iced over cave Riddim”, JaBBA’s latest effort goes by the name of “Skate” and is a molasses slow slumper that retains the indignantly pretty sound he has become known for. At some point in the coming months, Shaw will release an EP on the True Panther imprint, an EP that will hopefully see the Australian born producer exploring more icy terrains.
