KG & UNIIQU3 BLEND AFRO HOUSE & JERSEY CLUB

Jamz Supernova’s label Future Bounce this year turns it’s hand to the club, with a year long series of club releases which will culminate in a compilation. Picking artists who’s productions have been a staple in Jamz’ DJ sets, each month will see an original, exclusive two track drop. Ranging from well known underground producers to those yet to have their moment, focusing on the UK and beyond.

The 8th release of the year is a special collaboration between two prominent producers on both sides of the pond. Uniiqu3 of New Jersey is a complete all rounder, as a producer she has been a pioneer of the Jersey club sound. As A DJ her infectious open format club performances have taken her around the world and as vocalist she brings fun raps about partying and body confidence to any feature. KG of London has been described as a Rhythm Goddess. Fusing the sounds of UK Funky, Afro influences and bass music, she is on many peoples’ list as one to watch. 

Her steady releases on the epic Goonclub Allstars label has led to her touring Europe, smashing sets at Boiler Room and being booked for the tastemaker festival CTM in Berlin. The individual power of these women in music, politics and feminism when combined feels like an epic moment in dance music. Jamz Supernova has an incredible amount of respect, admiration and love for both Uniiqu3 and KG, to have them both on one release is akin to Christmas coming early.

The A side track, “B2B,” is a sultry number, Uniiqu3 is on the vocals with an interesting word play that explores two bodies sensually meeting but also in reference to her and KG collaborating going back to back. The beautiful chords used and light drum pattern draws you in to feel intimate but the unexpected rave breakdown drags you back to the dance floor. The B side track, “Black Roses,” is a smooth roller perfect to begin or end any night. The stunning chords continue, this time with more space but Uniiqu3’s chopped and sampled vocals keep it moving. In both of these offerings KG and Uniiqu3 venture into different soundscapes whilst retaining the qualities that make them special. 

If New Jersey and London had a baby this is what it would sound like: listen here.
