If The DJBooth is you primary source for new music, it’s possible Yean Never SeenYOUNG Gii’s face before but, rest assured, you’ll be seeing a lot more of him in the months ahead. On this eclectic cut, the Bahamian-born, Chicago-based buzzmaker draws inspiration from his native country’s Junkanoo tradition, which incorporates a street carnival, elaborate costumes and musicians playing a wide variety of percussion instruments. Appropriately, Ozbourne takes a kitchen-sink approach behind the boards, incorporating a dizzying array of drums as well as brash horns. Lina Love assists on the hook. Fans will be able to find this cut and much more on Gii’s Islands to the City EP, due out between March 12, and the 22nd.
