Combine legendary beat-makers like Tokimonsta, Flying Lotus, and Dilla, with the deep gritty grooves of Thundercat, and Toro y Moi’s chillwave synth-pop, and you begin to approach the sound Jaw Gems creates. Since their start in 2009, the band has been exploring sonic and rhythmic ideas that emphasize interlaced melodies and hard-hitting slaps. The result is a harmonic workout for both the subconscious and neck.
Electronic producer, Daedelus, says “Jaw Gems have done the magic trick of delivering thoroughly listenable instrumental [albums] that you can also sing along to.” It’s this unique sound that also caught the attention of acclaimed producer Daddy Kev, founder of Alpha Pup Records — home to many of the aforementioned artists. “I fell in love with Jaw Gems the first time I saw them perform,” says Kev. “I think they’re a perfect fit for the Alpha Pup label.”
With the release their fourth album, ‘Dim Kingdom’, (Alpha Pup) Jaw Gems have unleashed a sonic spark in the shadows . Inspired by the band’s mood regarding the current state of America during recording time, ‘Dim Kingdom’ represents a shifting stance for the group with an expanding sound and calming intensity. Dim Kingdom is out now and available worldwide.
