The best word to describe New York-based electronic music producer Jai Wolf is triumphant.
It’s actually kind of odd how large and emotionally thrilling his music is, because it’s simultaneously so lonely sounding. Imagine someone in their apartment staring at their mirror, preparing themselves for the biggest day of their life—the soundtrack to that moment would be Jai Wolf.
Sajeeb Saha, the mastermind behind the laptop, has lived all over the planet. You’ll hear vast international influences in the music, if you’re not too busy dancing.
