Once I first noticed ISOxo reside on the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles, his first headline present together with Brownies & Lemonade, I used to be instantly indoctrinated into the ISOxo religion. The vitality that crowd had was in contrast to something I remembered lately and it wouldn’t be a lot of an understatement to say it reinvigorated my love of dance music once more, or no less than entice, like renewing one’s vows.
That present was October 16, 2021, and 13 months later, one of many largest tracks of that evening is lastly out — “Say What” with G Jones.
I bear in mind when he bought on the mic on the present and advised the gang one thing alongside the traces of, “That is unreleased with G Jones,” and I turned to ISO’s supervisor within the balcony with a face clearly conveying shock, and he gave me essentially the most delicate grin and simply nodded.
The three-minute monitor is a superb mixture of each artists’ types, G Jones’ iconic synth stabs and ISOxo’s percussion-soaked drops. Every artist left a bit of their soul inside this collab and with each hear, an increasing number of delicate components rise to the service, to not point out the impact it has on the gang when truly performed out reside.
“The track ‘Say What’ began off as a beat problem that I did a couple of years in the past. I wished to make a G Jones sort beat when creating the monitor, little did I do know that years later he would truly wish to work on it too. This was actually a full circle second for me.” – ISOxo
“Julian despatched me a demo of this concept and I instantly cherished it. He despatched over stems, and from there the remainder of monitor got here collectively actually rapidly. It felt like a extremely pure and easy collaboration.” – G Jones
“Say What” comes as a part of G Jones forthcoming EP, ILLUSORY TRACKS, out earlier than the tip of the 12 months. Hear beneath.
