Blue-eyed soulsmen Mayer Hawthorne has linked up with Michigan producer 14KT to form the duo, Jaded Incorporated. It only makes sense that the two joined forced, seeing as Hawthorne & 14KT were friends since high school.
Jaded Inc.’s first offering, “Coconut Sofa” has been dubbed as “beat wave,” and it makes perfect sense on first listen. There’s obviously nods to new wave, post-punk and features similar sounds to David Bowie’s early material and a little Detroit ghettotech thrown in for good measure. I co-sign this 100. Look out for Jaded Inc.’s first project, The Big Knock due out June 17th.
