Berlin-based drummer and live electronic maestro JBXDR has returned with another offering – this time enlisting The Josh Craig for vocal duties. ‘Soul Fool’ was recently released via Springstoff, and comes from his upcoming EP No 2 – which will hit the airwaves on 18 October.
The two seem to form a formidable musical pair. JBXDR uses all manners of electronic sounds, mixing it up with his affinity for drums. The new track is a beautifully flowing groove, textured by JBXDR’s electronic tinkering, and The Josh Craigs vocal proclivities.
JBXDR gives some insight: “I had a feeling that ‘Soul Fool’ needed to become the first track to feature a vocalist. I had just met Josh out in Berlin, his energy was strong and inspired and we resonated straight away. So I ended up sending him a bounce only to receive the first vocal sketches days later. At which point we knew that this would be only the first collaborations of many to come. A song where packaging fits content, ‘Soul Fool’ is just that. A gorgeous R&B influenced piece of musical cake – warm and embracing like honey. The vocals add a tinge of longing and an emotional three-dimensionality to the mix. The track itself highlights my understanding and maybe even manifests my vision on keeping a motif and its realm interesting and flowing throughout its different universes.”
