Jarreau Vandal “Anthology”

 

After months of anticipation, and with support coming from all sides of the musical spectrum,

Jarreau Vandal unveiled his debut thirteen-track mixtape, Anthology. Download and stream it now:

‘Anthology’ – Jarreau Vandal

A melting pot of genres, touching on everything from R&B and dub, to grime and latino grooves, Anthology is an eclectic body of work that marks a significant change of gear for Jarreau. With a distinct focus on live instrumentation, the Dutch beatsmith, multi-instrumentalist and, as of the forthcoming project, vocalist, is channeling his inspirations and travels into a new sound. An anthology of musical creativity.

Conceptually, the artist views the release as an opportunity to “look at life from distance” and uses it as a “motivational force to keep working”. Yet it does not stop there. True to the title, the mixtape seeks to pinpoint the most crucial moments in the life of the veteran member of Soulection as well as serves as a platform to showcase the versatility of his talent.

‘What You Saying’, premiered by The Fader earlier this week, does just this and completes the collection of singles released in the build up. Steel drums, a funky slap bass, and the seductive vocals of TĀLĀ make up the bare bones of the track, with Jarreau’s deft production piecing it all together into a definitive hit. It joins the likes of ‘Scintilla’ (with Luna Mae), ‘Break My Back’ featuring Ashnikko, and ‘Westside’, all of which received support from industry tastemakers at BBC Radio 1, Beats 1, and Rinse FM to name but a few.

Out today along with the rest of the mixtape, are laid back numbers including ‘Moonlight’ featuring Hollie Carmen and Jay-Wray, ‘Down’ with R&B newcomer JGrrey, and ‘Take Your Time’ with Ace Hashimoto. On ‘At Least You Know’, Jarreau enlists the help of MOBO-award winning singer Shakka, while electro-soul trailblazer Sam Wills undertakes vocal duties on ‘Breathe’.

Glued together by skits that could be singles in their own right, Anthology truly is a multi-faceted piece of work that serves as a refinement of Jarreau’s existing discography, while offering a glimpse into his creative evolution and vision for the future.

  1. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up.

    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

  2. Having read this I thought it was really informative. I appreciate you finding
    the time and energy to put this informative article together.
    I once again find myself spending a significant amount of
    time both reading and leaving comments. But so what, it was still worth it!

  3. Hello to every one, the contents existing at this web site are in fact amazing for people experience, well, keep up
    the good work fellows.

  4. I do believe all of the ideas you’ve offered for your post.
    They are very convincing and can certainly work. Nonetheless, the
    posts are too brief for starters. May you please extend them a
    little from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

  5. Have you ever considered writing an e-book or guest authoring on other
    websites? I have a blog centered on the same information you discuss and would really like
    to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers would enjoy your work.
    If you’re even remotely interested, feel free to send me an e
    mail.

  6. Admiring the time and energy you put into your website and detailed information you offer.
    It’s awesome to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same outdated rehashed material.
    Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS
    feeds to my Google account.

  7. Hiya! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa?
    My site addresses a lot of the same topics as yours and I
    feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you might be interested feel free to send me an email.
    I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

  8. Howdy! This post couldn’t be written any better!
    Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate!
    He always kept talking about this. I will
    forward this article to him. Pretty sure he will have a
    good read. Many thanks for sharing!

  9. Howdy, i read your blog from time to time and i own a similar one and i was just curious if you
    get a lot of spam responses? If so how do you stop it, any plugin or
    anything you can recommend? I get so much lately it’s driving
    me mad so any support is very much appreciated.

  10. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was
    wondering what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% certain. Any
    suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos

  11. I think what you published was very logical.
    However, consider this, suppose you were to create
    a killer title? I am not suggesting your information is not good., but suppose you added a title to maybe get a person’s attention? I
    mean Jarreau Vandal “Anthology” – A Valid Review is
    a little boring. You should look at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they write
    post headlines to get viewers interested. You might add a
    video or a related pic or two to grab people interested about
    everything’ve got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your website a little livelier.

  12. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else
    encountering problems with your site. It appears as if some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody
    else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?

    This might be a issue with my web browser
    because I’ve had this happen previously. Cheers

  13. May I simply just say what a comfort to discover someone that
    truly understands what they’re talking about on the web. You definitely know how to bring
    a problem to light and make it important. More and
    more people should read this and understand this side of your story.
    I can’t believe you are not more popular because you definitely possess the gift.

  14. This is very interesting, You’re a very skilled blogger.
    I have joined your rss feed and look forward to seeking more of your great
    post. Also, I’ve shared your web site in my social networks!

  15. Hello there! This post couldn’t be written any better! Going through this article reminds me of my
    previous roommate! He continually kept talking about this.
    I’ll send this information to him. Fairly certain he will have
    a very good read. Thank you for sharing!

  16. After I initially commented I seem to have
    clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a
    comment is added I get 4 emails with the exact same
    comment. Is there a way you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

  17. Superb site you have here but I was wondering
    if you knew of any community forums that cover
    the same topics talked about here? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get
    comments from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest.
    If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Appreciate it!
