JMSN-Fallin' (Video)

He’s a multi-talented act, and has really risen to prominence in recent months thanks to some strong remixes and good productions served to other artists. Amidst all of that his solo work went somewhat overlooked, and this is a good opportunity to acquaint yourself with his capabilities.

The production is hugely atmospheric, the moody soundscape built up of glum string plucks, ghostly vocal samples and doses of strong synth work, and it gives JMSN a platform to maximise his vocal work. The whispery, haunting style of his singing is amplified considerably by the surrounding production work, whilst the beat’s intermittent inclusions of percussion and additional samples throw unexpected yet likeable elements into the mix. Admittedly, the 5+ minutes the song stretches for starts to become a touch repetitive towards the 4 minute mark, but smartly he brings in some powerful synth work to revitalise the listening experience.

I’m a little short on room to do the video justice, but the dark, spiritual direction he’s chosen is a near-perfect fit for the audio, and you can read his own rather philosphical explanation of the video here. Download the Priscilla album here.
