L.A based producer/dj Jerome LOL is gearing up for the release of his new EP “Deleted/Fool” next week on the Friends Of Friends label, he made this absolutely amazing mix for XLR8R which will undoubtedly be soundtracking our daily grind here at Discobelle HQ.

“A simple glance at the tracklist reveals that this is not the average XLR8R mix, as it’s safe to say that we’ve never had an artist throwing down tracks from 50 Cent, Adele, Miley Cyrus, Justin Timberlake, and Usher before. However, what’s truly impressive is that Jerome LOL has managed to utilize these pop-chart anthems in a way that doesn’t seem cheap or ridiculous. There’s absolutely a method to his madness, as the mix reveals a real talent for identifying and blending sounds, irrespective of whatever cultural baggage their source material may carry. Over the course of more than an hour, there’s a continual emphasis on synthesized melodies, unobtrusive (but effective) rhythms, processed vocals, and the oddly beautiful inhumanity of modern production techniques. Even when he digs deep into his archives, there’s something familiar, even comforting, about the music on offer, not to mention a real sense of continuity from one song to the next. Jerome LOL clearly understands the dynamics of today’s pop music, but he’s also quite diligent about tracing its various elements back through history; in this way, he’s something of a musical archaeologist, and perhaps that’s what makes him such a compelling figure. After all, we’re not usually big fans of international pop smashes, but in the context of Jerome LOL, we’ve found that they go down quite smooth.”

L.A based producer/dj, Body High co-founder and Internet maestro Jerome LOL has been on a steady output of amazing tracks, remixes and mixes, this jazzed up, funky mix for Well Connected is no exception and it’s a well suited mix for easing you into the weekend or as Jerome himself puts it: “get you in the proper mood for the upcoming summer“.

“This mix is a mix of songs that inspire me. None of them are secret, none of them are unreleased, none of them are brand new, even. Each song on the mix means a lot to me, and I hope they end up meaning a lot to you too. This mix should get you in the proper mood for the upcoming summer. Enjoy ^__^” -JeromeLOL
