Berlin-based artist JBXDR joins forces with Brooklyn-based The Josh Craig in new collaborative single “Soul Fool” – a delightful slice of indietronica hip-hop filled with the ambient background of R&B and breakneck choruses. “Soul Fool” breaks the barriers of contemporary hip-hop by cross-pollinating it with sizzling thumps that gives you an invigorating laidback rush. There’s a sense of longing that radiates from The Josh Craig’s vocals – check it out:

“I had a feeling that ‘Soul Fool’ needed to become the first track to feature a vocalist. I had just met Josh out in Berlin, his energy was strong and inspired and we resonated straight away. So I ended up sending him a bounce only to receive the first vocal sketches days later. At which point we knew that this would be only the first collaborations of many to come. A song where packaging fits content, ‘Soul Fool’ is just that. A gorgeous R&B influenced piece of musical cake – warm and embracing like honey. The vocals add a tinge of longing and an emotional three-dimensionality to the mix. The track itself highlights my understanding and maybe even manifests my vision on keeping a motif and its realm interesting and flowing throughout its different universes.”

JBXDR has previously worked with renowned producers such as Andy Baldwin (Hidden Orchestra, Belle & Sebastian), Jeremy Loucas (Spacepilot), Diana Krall (Order Of Canada) and Terry Lynn Carrington (Giovanni Tommaso Quintet).
