Also known as simply jamenos when he’s got his funk and disco hat on, B-Jam vs Enos is this talented Edinburgh-based producer’s hip-hop and downtempo beats moniker. Flipping crusty old soul and funk samples, integrating vintage and analog synths, chopping up beats, and putting out bumpin’ moody atmospheric vibes is what he does best. Now B-Jam has resumed the voyage with Dog Concept, his debut long player on the WeGrowWax imprint. Within its eleven tracks B-Jam peers beyond the horizon, absorbing fresh, worldwide sounds which reference the past but always look forward. These brand new jams touch on boom bap, jazz, future beats, and soul, all while stirring hallucinations of ocean views and the pacific highway. The tension of the set’s standout track “Incidental Vision” is impossible to ignore with its sense of the unknown, flickering amongst dark drums, moody synthesizers, and a mysterious, proclaiming vocal. Irresistible head-nodders like “Toast” and “Snout Soul” also are on hand to captivate, balancing tough beats with deep and melodic atmospherics. The jazzy “Finding Reality” – a collaboration with Sarkar – and the dance floor soul of “Quadcorkle” – in cahoots with Bethune – reveal other sonic facets of this impressive collection. Always progressing and soaking up new sounds and ideas, this is another step on BJam’s journey into the future. Destination unknown but its an enjoyable ride.
