The homie J-Lah is a producer/DJ/fashion designer out of Toronto, and he laced us with the soundscape that became 'Wrecked'. A haunting sample kicks off the club-oriented, 808-drenched cut, with tongue-in-cheek tales of intoxication courtesy of Cee and Notion. And for those familiar with internet hilarity, the cover art is a variation of the Really Stoned Guy meme - it's definitely not an old pic of either of the boys...
Quebec representative JPolo hit us with the more soulful production of the two joints; 'Still The Kid' is a slow groove sample-based cut that sees Cee and Notion on their usual TMF ish - double time flows over the eerie synths allow the kids to flex a little, all the while letting y'all know where they came from.
A youthful barrage of neu-disco, progressive and electro-sprinkled synths, J-Lah's Time Trap EP contains sounds for every EDM lover. The lead single, Time Trap, provides an alluring steady climb of introductory synthesizers and, after much foreplay, spontaneously combusts into a drop of rich, characterful melody with an enormous amounts of energy. Conversely, You Don't Understand conveys more intimacy - a contemplative homage to influences of past, present and future. The Time Trap EP is JLah's first official record release, and we are extremely proud to welcome him into the Burner family.
