‘wonky, relaxed, eclectic’ | Interview with Jacuzzi Jefferson

Glitch hop sounds that take listeners on a dreamy sonic journey through infinite possibilities. Read our discussion with Jacuzzi Jefferson.

Describe your sound in 3 words

wonky, relaxed, eclectic

You created The infinite long distance. Tell us a few things about it. Could you describe to us your creative process?

I sent Matthew a couple beats I had and he sent back the bass lines super quick. I gave it a mix and then ran everything through the 404 for effects. For this beat I was really trying to let the timing of the drums be loose.

How did the two of you meet and started making music together?

I met Matthew through Sidechain Society. For anyone who isn’t familiar, Sidechain is a creative community started by STLNDRMS. I got put on to it by Cryptic One. They have weekly Zoom meetings where everyone shares the music they have been working on. It’s a cool way to hear a lot of new music and find people for collaborations. Also all the producers are nasty so it makes you want to step up your production for the following week.

Artists and people that have influenced you?

These days I’ve been listening to a lot of Griselda, Wet Leg, Cumulus Frisbee, Clap! Clap!, Little Simz, Altopalo, Death From Above 1979, Wednesday, Black Thought, Danny Brown, and JPEGMAFIA.

Which loop/sample/song you could listen to till infinity and beyond, which you wish you had composed yourselves?

A couple come to mind. “August 10” by Khruangbin, “Flava In Ya Ear” by Craig Mack, and “T.R.O.Y.” by Pete Rock and C.L. Smooth.

If your music was a film, which film would that be?

I don’t know, I’d like to think it would be something cool but realistically I think it would be a pretty uneventful movie.

What do you love/hate about NYC?

I love how accessible everything is. One metrocard swipe can get you from Coney Island to the Bronx. Plus you can always get late night food in NYC. I don’t have any hate for the city.

What isn’t a crime but should be?

Being rude

Thank you!
