Over just the past year and change, JWLS has seen releases on global super labels, ULTRA Records & Mixmash, has co-collaborated on big tunes with worldwide upside-down-booty-clap-provoking EDM juggernaut, Diplo, and has toured the country alongside various massive names like Laidback Luke and with HARD events. And this week, JWLS is celebrating the release of his first-EVER EP. (…And to think, just only a little less than three years ago we were sneaking this now 21-year-old, Miami-based prodigy into a tiny and sweaty-packed nightclub in San Diego so he could play his set.)
Needless to say, it’s been really exciting to watch JWLS – both, as an incredibly talented, taste-cultivating producer, and as an endlessly cool & humble guy – get the attention he deserves. Yet while the aforementioned achievements reaffirm JWLS‘ well-deserved ascent up the EDM ladder of this current era’s up & up talent, JWLS’ personal significance within the Moombahton genre, can’t be quantified by numerous accolades or Beatport chart stats.
No, it’s really all about a story. Its’ title – ‘BASHIN‘: about ONE special track JWLS made; and the excitement, the desperation, the despair, the excruciating & unrelenting period of ceaseless revelry that this single track provoked across the Moombahton forums worldwide. Doing so entirely with a less than 2 minute long CLIP on his Soundcloud: A tiny track clip that instantaneously became a full-blown anthem for both the greater parts of 2011 and 2012.
JWLS’ “Bashin’” was THE ONE: the biggest tune of all moombah tunes. It was the track that EVERYONE wanted; and it was the track that almost NO ONE ELSE could have.
That is, until now.
The most long and ferociously-anticipated release in the history of Moombahton, JWLS’ “Bashin” EP has finally been released on Diabluma Sound; marking only the second release from the label operated by the very pioneers of the moombahton sound itself, Nadastrom.
JWLS’ first ever EP package also contains one more original construction titled “Lagrimas” – a percussive, yet melodic floor-filler with JWLS’ own unique touch of unexpected progressions, seducing ethereal elements, and eye-fluttering builds – as well as a more hidden edit from the innovators themselves, Nadastrom’s “More Bounce” refix – (which is graciously available for free download via MixMag here.)
So, are you ready to hear the full & mastered version of the track that made moombahtonistas everywhere absolutely LOSE THEIR SHIT?! If not for anyone else, do YOURSELF a favor. Support this fine work on Beatport and listen to the anthem, the way it was meant to be heard – *in glittering, high-quality 320 format.*
