Jai Paul – Jasmine

In 2010 Jai Paul got everyone all excited with ‘BTSTU’, a gorgeous slice of sonic wobbliness with a killer tune and a perfectly fragile vocal. Two years and no music later, he’s back – with another gem in ‘Jasmine’. Plenty of people have made this kind of music in the intervening period – many of them very successfully: but, on this evidence, there is still room for Mr Paul.

It’s music for late nights, in a Weeknd sort of way, and it’s hard to dislike the inventive rhythms and catchy hooks which flow through this one. Little is known about the artist, which may be deliberate (‘Jasmine’ is coming out on XL): either way, we just hope he’s here to stay this time.
