I tried to do some research on Jai Paul, but I realized he’s somewhat of an enigma. He’s a 22 year old, of Indian descent, from London, and self-producing his XL album to be released in 2011. AsianDan said: “He is one part Prince, one part D’Angelo mixed with heavy doses of Diplo and Madlib.”
“BTSTU” is hazy and weighty and shows off unrestrained level of creativity and originality. The song has been out since mid-2010, but it’s my first taste of Jai Paul and I’m really excited to hear more from him in 2011. Very cool stuff, check it out below.
