Surprise EP ‘Flora’ coming from Jneiro jarel
Flora X Jneiro Jarel
Label Who? founder and creator in residence Jneiro Jarel dropped this one on us - Flora is the first EP in the Viberian Trilogy that leads to JJ's next full length release. Spinning off from the 2010 release ‘Fauna’, Flora sonically evokes images of plant life and the interconnectivity of all things. Musically sampling elements of the earth - animal sounds, bird calls, human sounds - Flora takes you somewhere else. Check out what Vice and Okayplayer have to say, and preorder the EP right here.
Jneiro Jarel X Kimbra
Label Who? founder Jneiro Jarel emerged from the studio last week to drop this on us - almost an hour of Kimbra with that distinct JJ style behind it. Dig.
JJ X Bonafide
Jneiro Jarel is in the studio, deep in the creative process and preparing to drop new music via Label Who?. Check this feature and exclusive mix he did for Bonafide Magazine - deep, otherworldly (of course), and soaked in heavy beats. We've been waiting to hear what's going on in there, and he casually drops a new track, Landed, in the middle of the mix. Genius.
