True Story: I met a guy whose name no one knows

I met a guy whose name I can’t tell you, because no one seems to know his real name.

True Story

So... I met a guy and he told me about this genre of music called Vaporwave. I thought it was interesting. I was intrigued. I like all types of electronic music, but I never heard of it. After watching a number of Youtube videos and listening to various creations, I had an idea.

When the music drops, it's like a warm bath of sound. Insanely slow...weirdly wonky, yet appealing. Every time I listen to this, I just feel...relaxed. If you feel the same, or just feel like paying it forward today, support a traveling music explorer and click the buy button. I could really use your help!

This genre is highly sample driven, significantly slow, among other things. The associated artwork and comments often poke fun at a number of things. I like it.

I thought I'd sample my own material, just to see what it would sound like...

Who knew?

Jamila + Brandy's New BET Sitcom!

Jamila just placed a song in Brandy's new BET sitcom, Zoe Ever After. It's in episode 2!

The song plays in the opening scene while Zoe (Brandy) browses art in a museum. I love that tune! Check it out!

You can listen to more of Jamila's music here or via the player below!

Out now! Man in a Loft, Jamila, Antigua Deep!

It's official! We have some catalog releases on #Traxsource and a new release on #Bandcamp! Check them out!

Made to Order Love / Antigua Deep

A slow building, sexy, Disclosure-like house track featuring Los Angeles singer/songwriter, Jamila. This release includes the ever so chill, original demo version of this tune, which charted at #5 on the Traxsource Essential Lounge chart.

Love is Sexy / Jamila
It was fun making this EP...so many great experiences. This EP contains Feeling Friendly, dubbed one of the best new songs of 2014 by Chris Campbell of WDET's Progressive Underground radio show out of Detroit. I really like the break down in that song. It reminds me of Sweetback/Sade. It also contains Crazy, dubbed as a modern future music tune made yesterday (though its years old) by Complexion, from the Future Beats radio show.

Burn Slow / Man in a Loft
This is an interlude I made some time ago. It has a unique combination of acoustic piano an electric piano, two things I wouldn't normally put together. People have asked me to extend this. Maybe...one day. For those of you who don't want to cough up $$$ for this record, it's also available for free on NoiseTrade and Bandcamp!

As always, your support is critical to this artistic movement. Without you, all this music might as well be silence!

One Love,
Man in a Loft
