Brooklyn producer JEANIE has been on our radar for the better part of 2017. Whether it’s hard hitting trap or experimental bass sounds, she’s always coming through with something new and exciting. Taking this one step further comes her debut EP Disturbance. The project spans a myriad of sounds, from raw rave to creepy bass, and over to cinematic sci-fi soundscapes. The project’s standout single is the opener ‘NASA’.
The track pairs her rugged bass chops with snapping drums, perfectly placed samples and some rap swagger. “All of the vocals in ‘NASA’ came from this random group SapBoys, which is a side project from this dope producer named Gangus who kindly let me use the acapella. They just put out really weird/wonky shit and I thought it was great haha,” JEANIE tells us. She’s not the only one. The combination of the SapBoys’ bars and out of this world production collide for a rugged sound that’s darker than the blackness of space. As for what inspired the sound, “Well I knew I wanted to go really heavy for the first track of the EP, but the track itself was inspired by Zeke Beats, who whips out some of the craziest productions ever, so I think that’s where the main inspiration came from. I just want to f*ck people up I guess. In a good way though.” Mission accomplished.
