Here is a preview of Jamie Berry‘s 2nd EP Grandiose due to be released in the first week of July. It features 5 tracks all sampling some of the finest swing records of the 1920’s and 30’s.
5 amazing tracks among these my 2 favs are Grandiose (Original Mix) and NFY (Original Mix).
I really love what Jamie Berry did on this grandiose EP and on the one before (Carnival is a great track). His sound talks to me more than ever.
It will be released on Flak Records. Stay tuned to get it!
Few questions to Jamie Berry: You gave us 2 great EP’s. Your sound is more mature. How would you qualify it? What are your influences and what do you want to achieve in the future ?
My influences and inspirations for the EP came from the actual samples themselves. I spent a long time sifting through old records and archives listening out for catchy vocal hooks and horn sections. It’s an unusual way to make music as your entirely reliant on that perfect sample for the track to start taking shape.
In the future I would love to perform with a full band and have an entire catalogue of original material to play. I’m already working on new tracks, some venturing away from the Electro-swing ideal but still with a sound that should keep fans happy. I’m looking forward to being able to work with some exciting new artists and start collaborating with other producers.
