02 Jul Jarreau Vandal Shares New Single ‘My Way’ ft Col3trane
With over 680,000 monthly listeners on Spotify, and a host of energetic DJ sets performed across the world, Amsterdam based producer and DJ Jarreau Vandal has been meticulously honing his sound beyond his home-city of Amsterdam.
Today, Jarreau Vandal follows his previous single, ‘Nothing Nice’ feat. Kojey Radical and Gaidaa, with the afrobeats groove ‘My Way. The track was exclusively premiered by DJ Target on BBC Radio 1xtra, and sees Jarreau team up with emerging R&B singer Col3trane. Co-written by Ari Pensmith (GoldLink, Beyoncé), ‘My Way’ is the third single to be taken from Jarreau’s forthcoming EP ‘Superhero: The Villain Within, released 16th July on Hear This Records.
A firm staple of the Dutch beats and club scene, his affiliation with LA based collective Soulection as their Dutch ambassador has led to explosive global sets in London, Cape Town, Sydney, Bali and more. The EP tittle reflects on this, with Jarreau looking back at opportunities he’s had worldwide, coming from a small neighbourhood in Amsterdam.
The impressive up-tempo 7 track EP is impossible to pinpoint a genre. Raised in a musical family, Jarreau first found his passion for music playing drums in his church band, and via his producer Grandfather. Growing up listening to gospel, soul and jazz, Jarreau’s eclectic sound transcends those genres, percussion, and his later discoveries of R&B, funk, hip hop and pop. Other guests on the EP include, Nigerian musician Tay Iwar and LA-based singer-songwriter Kiah Victoria.
Well known for his official remixes of hit singles by G-Eazy, Diplo, Mahalia and Janet Jackson, he also recently gained production credits on ‘Better Off’ by JGrrey and Jerome Thomas’s ‘Lovesick’, as well as collaborations with DenZel Curry, Masego, Shakka and more. His VANDALIZED edit on Rema’s summer smash ‘Dumebi’ was also released as an official remix. Not limiting himself to music, 2020 has already seen Jarreau make strides in fashion, teaming up with Dutch brand baskets for their Nike Air Max 1 ‘Amsterdam shoe release, taking part in the Adidas x Intersport ‘Faster Than’ series and his lockdown live stream for Levi’s 501:Live.
