This Month’s Groove

Salty Air (feat. Noa Lembersky)

Salty Air reminds me of James MTUME, an R&B artist from the early ’80’s.  This track has a nice beat and funky bass riff.  I caught it a couple of times on Sirius/XM radio and it was worth the purchase on iTunes.  Check it out and others from j.viewz.  Good Stuff.

Jonathan Dagan, known by his stage name j.viewz, is a Brooklyn-based songwriter, producer, remixer, and visual artist. Dagan was born in Israel on February 16, 1982.[1]

Under the alias j.viewz, he has collaborated with numerous guest vocalists and musicians. His production often incorporates nostalgic elements through the use of samples, analog tapes and synthesizers, and is often described as multilayered and detailed. NPR’s All Songs Considered said, “j.viewz writes songs that whirl and clatter like tiny Rube Goldberg devices.”

j.viewz’s visual presentations (including live performances and produced albums and videos) have received international recognition. In 2012, he was nominated for a Grammy Award for the unique package design of his album rivers and homes. The title video off of rivers and homes was nominated for an MTV O Music Award (“Most Innovative Video”) and a UK Music Video Award(“The Innovation Award”).
