Jauz – Dangerous Waters [EP]
Sam Vogel, known worldwide by his moniker Jauz, has become one of the most in-demand acts within the electronic scene. He’s collaborated with everyone from Skrillex and San Holo to Tiësto and DJ Snake to name just a few out of a long list, and that list just keeps on growing. Releasing on multiple labels such as Spinnin’ Records and Mad Decent, in 2017 he took the next big step in his career and became the founder/CEO of his very own imprint Bite This. This helped to further propel his career in new ways, and now he is at the very top of his game without any plans to slow down on conquering the music industry soon. Firing on all cylinders, he is kicking off 2020 with a brand-new EP.
Titled ‘Dangerous Waters‘, fitting in brilliantly with his whole shark branding, it takes fans on a five-track journey through a world of hard-hitting beats. Not doing it alone, he is bringing his artists friends TYNAN, Jump System, Franky Nuts and Nonsens along for the ride to collaborate on some serious heaters. ‘Bring Em Back’ with TYNAN and ‘Dangerous’ with Jump System were the two lead singles from this EP, and both set the tone for the EP perfectly. Becoming fan favourites already, ‘Bring Em Back’ sets off the fire alarms with the amount of heat exuding from the beats whereas ‘Dangerous’ takes a darker route.
‘There For U’ with Franky Nuts takes a dubstep-inspired route and gives the headbangers new headbanging material. The synths pack a powerful punch and has the lyrical content available to sing along to at the top of your lungs. The Nonsens collaboration ‘The Beat’ is fueled by pure energy and bouncing beats which will no doubt have all the dancefloors shaking all over the world when this track is played at high volume. Last but not least is Jauz’s solo track ‘Get To Me’ and it’s the perfect ending to this masterpiece of an EP. The track is essential Jauz signature sound, and fans will revel in the drop as it showcases everything that makes him stand out as a producer.
