Jauz Drops his Eagerly Awaited “Rise Of The Wise’ LP
Jauz Drops his Eagerly Awaited “Rise Of The Wise’ LPJuly 14, 2023
The eight-track LP is the artist’s sophomore album, following his critically acclaimed 2018 concept album The Wise and the Wicked, which his new LP cleverly alludes to in name, sound, and spirit.
When speaking about his new album, Jauz had this to say: “This album to me is really the true essence of the sound I’ve been chasing in my head for the last 3-4 years – somewhere in the middle of techy, melodic, progressive, and still unmistakably Jauz. I’ve been making house music in a lot of forms for as long as the Jauz project has been around, but never had the right outlet for it. When I went into the planning phase of creating the next phase of ‘The Wise and The Wicked’. I realized that I had kind of accidentally created a space for me to express that sound without realizing it.”
“The whole concept behind TWATW was supposed to be an analogy for the dichotomy of my creative process – half the time wanting to go one direction, and then half the time the polar opposite. That’s never been more true today, and I think I’ve finally truly found what the sounds of each of these “Worlds” really means to me. Even when I originally came up with the concept of who “The Wise” were, they always seemed like the kind of people who would be listening to the kind of music that is on this album, but probably because of my own insecurities I pivoted it to be more melodic bass driven music. This time around, in my mind, I’ve truly nailed the vision I’ve always had for this part of my musical world and I hope fans new and old can feel that through the songs.”
