Once I first noticed ISOxo stay on the Teragram Ballroom in Los Angeles, his first headline present together with Brownies & Lemonade, I used to be instantly indoctrinated into the ISOxo religion. The vitality that crowd had was in contrast to something I remembered lately and it wouldn’t be a lot of an understatement to say it reinvigorated my love of dance music once more, or not less than lure, like renewing one’s vows.
That present was October 16, 2021, and 13 months later, one of many greatest tracks of that evening is lastly out — “Say What” with G Jones.
I bear in mind when he obtained on the mic on the present and advised the gang one thing alongside the strains of, “That is unreleased with G Jones,” and I turned to ISO’s supervisor within the balcony with a face clearly conveying shock, and he gave me essentially the most refined grin and simply nodded.
The three-minute observe is an excellent mixture of each artists’ types, G Jones’ iconic synth stabs and ISOxo’s percussion-soaked drops. Every artist left a bit of their soul inside this collab and with each hear, increasingly refined parts rise to the service, to not point out the impact it has on the gang when really performed out stay.
“The track ‘Say What’ began off as a beat problem that I did a number of years in the past. I needed to make a G Jones kind beat when creating the observe, little did I do know that years later he would really wish to work on it too. This was actually a full circle second for me.” – ISOxo
“Julian despatched me a demo of this concept and I instantly beloved it. He despatched over stems, and from there the remainder of observe got here collectively actually shortly. It felt like a very pure and easy collaboration.” – G Jones
“Say What” comes as a part of G Jones forthcoming EP, ILLUSORY TRACKS, out earlier than the tip of the 12 months. Pay attention under.
