Weekly updates

Jai Paul is the mysterious UK producer behind ‘BTSTU’, released to rapturous praise back in 2011. Since then he’s only had one other official release: 2012’s ‘Jasmine’. There was also that 16-track release that was put up on Bandcamp a little over a year ago, but, as much as we wanted it to be the real deal, it sadly wasn’t.

Now, finally, we’ve got news from XL Records’ Rodaidh McDonald that Jai Paul is working on some new material. In an interview with Dazed, he said that he’d recently been working with Jai Paul on an album that he’s been working on for years.

Jai Paul is a bit of an enigma, isn’t he? Have you worked much with that guy?
I did something with him last week, some vocal production on a new song. We finished it, whether he wants to put it out or not I don’t know. It’s just a very long process for him I guess, he’s been working on (his album) for years. One of the things that I sort of identified was that he might benefit from some help using vocals. But his music sounds so good, he doesn’t need any help, I think he’s perfect.

And that, my friends, is news enough for me. While I wait patiently, I’ll continue listening to ‘BTSTU’ on repeat. You can join me by flicking through the gallery above and pressing play.
