It’s Sunday, it’s rainy season, you’re chill, I`m chill, and I hope you’re listening to some good music. Ever since DJing became my hobby I have started putting up an antenna on my head in hopes of catching some good musical news wherever I go. So it happens I came across a budding star on youtube named Jhameel half a year ago. I watched this music video and was so impressed with the lyrics and raw energy…as well as the infectious beat. And it was catchy and cool that my first thought was “K-pop star doing a solo project in the US…!? They are really taking over!”
But he’s not a K-pop star, he is simply a one-man solo project….and a genius to boot. Jhameel is of mixed origin and from San Francisco, is 22 years old, graduated from Berkley University in just two years and decided to go into music then. So he *taught* himself a bunch of instruments and just started making his own songs and putting them on youtube. Kind of like you and I might think “Oh, I`m going to make a sandwich”.
And if he wasn’t prodigious enough, he puts out this dance remix that I could use in my DJ sets. THIS SONG!!

SO! I was super excited when it was announced he was going to be coming to Tokyo. I met him last night at the RAY-BAN legends exhibit at Sunday Issue where he gave a little concert. I got to interview him, and he was very professional. He told me he wasn’t drunk, but I`m suspect. lol. Even *I* was getting tipsy off of that champagne….
He is going to be in Osaka on the 14th so if you’re there then be sure to check him out.
