Time No Place/Kompakt Records is pleased to release the latest from Deebs & Jarell Perry. The Shift EP’s offkilter R&B comes cloaked in druggy atmosphere, the stasis of heartache, and entrancing rhythmic workouts.
It’s not an uncommon story for two artists who’ve never met to collaborate, trade tracks, and make something great – however, rarely does it come together so quickly (just a few days) as such of a fullyformed sound. Toronto’s Deebs and LA singer Jarell Perry’s new recording project does fusing triphop’s narcotic bounce with woozy modern soul.
Focused on nailing the moody hue, Perry’s delivery interestingly often eschews hooks in favor of arrangements that ride the tension of Deebs’ minimal, meticulous framework. The resulting gems reveal their carefully crafted genius slowly.
