On Our Radar

This dude's been on our radar for quite some time, and now he is making the big moves.

JT Soul's been a quick up-and-comer from the Montreal area, showcasing his talents both in the delivery of his seamlessly mixed rap and auto-tune vibes, very strong visuals and a steady incline on the scene.

After teasing us with a few singles, a short-flim and debut music video, he's dropped his anticipated EP titled 372 ; Velvet Tears.  Produced by thunder locals including the notorious Jei Bandit with co-production by jamvvis, Sterling Grove, crypt, Ethan Cyr and Rawssi

This EP pretty much details my youthful experiences with love, drugs and the streets of Montreal

As Montrealers, we tend to take for granted those late night long bus rides, where most of our creative vibes are flowing. JT Soul actually came up with the concept of the EP when he was on the 372 Jean-Talon night bus. The 6-track EP is #relatable, hinting at ideas revolving around love, pain, and drugs. 

JT Soul delivers sweet dark overtones of R&B influences with a perfect mixture of relatable narrative that keeps is all linear. For a new-comer, JT Soul delivers high quality fire track after track, immersing the listeners in his world filled with a balanced mixture of filtered vocals, rapping and perfectly placed auto-tune moments.

As you delve deeper into the EP, the sounds quickly become cinematic, where you'll find yourself seeing situations and colors that will trip you out.  

Listen to the entirety of 372 ; Velvet Tears below, add it on Spotify or Apple Music after the jump.
