PRAISE FOR Jitwam
‘phoenix’ is out now, buy/stream here
Multi-instrumentalist songwriter, producer, and vocalist Jitwam shares new single ‘phoenix’ today – an uplifting house joint for the Northern Hemisphere summer. Taken from the deluxe edition of his acclaimed album Third, set for release on June 2 via Roya – featuring seven bonus tracks, including recent singles ‘hollatchu (feat. YUNGMORPHEUS & Jaydonclover)’, ‘Hey Papi (Kraak & Smaak Remix)’ and ‘poor man’s boy’. LISTEN TO PHOENIX HERE.
Giving more context on the track, Jitwam shares “The Phoenix will rise. This is my ode to Daft Punk. A jam to bop to wit yo roller skates on. Featuring vox from my gurl Hadiya George and bass from the inimitable NATE08 from Mumbai, I hope this gives u a groove in your step and a funk to your flex.”
Jitwam also made his COLORS debut at the top of the year, performing the stripped back ‘roots’, and now fans get to hear the full studio version on the deluxe edition of Third – graceful honesty, embellished with melodic strings that makes for a very memorable song. Third originally picked up coverage from NME, The Guardian, NPR, Mixmag, DJ Mag, radio playlisting on BBC 6 Music (A List), Double J (in rotation), triple j Mix Up, spins on BBC Radio 1, KCRW, KEXP, as well as sold out shows in London and Melbourne.
Jitwam’s music skips across genres nimbly with influences from house music, r&b, soul, punk, and disco. Hailing from Assam in northeast India, the self-proclaimed “psychedelic soul savant” has steadily carved out his own lane and cemented himself as a global sector and live performer and label front at The Jazz Diaries, as well as being involved with the South Asian underground via Chalo and Dialled In Festival.
