I heard the song ‘Party’ by JSTJR today and felt the need to give him some attention. JSTJR started out with a style called Zouk Bass, and has evolved into more of a trap/midempo style. Learn more about Zouk Bass here, it has kind of an interesting ethnic backstory. Originating in Boston, this DJ is very young and full of amazing potential. He has put out some very dope music lately, such as ‘Valhalla’ and ‘Gritz’, both available to download for free. I really like ‘Gritz’ – its style and simplicity remind me of Mr. Carmack . Listen to ‘Party’ and ‘Gritz’ below and check out JSTJR on social media for more cool music.

Last fall JSTJR did a mix for Diplo and Friends, where he dropped killer tracks from the likes Wuki and Choppa Dunks, as well as a ton of original music and bootlegs. I’m really interested in seeing what JSTJR will bring us in the future – there’s no doubt that with support from Mad Decent he will be more and more popular as time passes.

JSTJR is also associated closely with Choppa Dunks, G-Buck, and Happy Colors. Not only do they often play shows together, they frequently collaborate and play each others music in mixes and at live shows. The crew just came off their Fear and Loathing in tour and EP release, as well as JSTJR and Friends 7. Check out Choppa Dunks, Happy Colors, and G-Buck on Soundcloud.
