Jared Evan - Blue

DJBooth_logo2x
  • Artist: Jared Evan
  • Track: Blue
  • Producer: Statik Selektah
  • Album: Boom Bap & Blues

Given the state of the Booth fave's love life, as described in recent femme fatale anthems Bad News and The Devil Wears Prada, it would be tough to blame Jared Evan for being a little down in the dumps. Contrary to what this cut's title may suggest, though, he doesn't seem to be feeling Blue at all. Instead, the latest single off his collaborative debut with Statik Selektah finds him reflecting on the eclectic mixture of influences that make up his artistic DNA—from rock, to hip-hop, to funk, to (of course) the blues. Statik crafts an appropriately out-the-box backdrop for Evan's sung and rapped ruminations, pairing boom-bap percussion with a soulfully addictive piano loop. CK directs the record's stylized visuals. Fans can find Blue and many more genre-defying bangers on the duo's Boom Bap & Blues LP, available now for free streaming and purchase in The DJBooth.
