The Jam Jar: Week 03 of 2015

Call me crazy but I still love me some MP3s.  Forget if your artist pulls their music off Spotify or your phone can’t connect to SoundClound (again); play what you want, when you want.  It can be tough to keep an eye on all that free music coming out each week but that’s why ThatNewJam is here.  Each week will end with a new Jam Jar playlist wrapping up all the music that we reposted each week.  We’ll also throw in a folder with all the free downloads that are in the playlist so you don’t have to go combing for each of them.

This week we had over 150 tracks surface on the TNJ SoundCloud page (which you should all definitely follow) ranging from a bassline baseline gems like Paige’s NSYNC remixes, an Oliver Heldens x Zeds Dead collab and a freebie from one of my favorites Durante.  Alesia unleashed a ruthless remix of  Jack Ü ‘s single Take Me There, RL Grime gave out his TNGHT edit, and Lookas proves trap is still alive and well with a monster new track Samurai.

We got some new material from Visionary Music Group in a strong mixtape from C Dot Castro titled Don’t Overthink It with a feature from TNJ favorite Jon Bellion. ABSRDST dropped a deep one on us along with AMTRAC, The Floozies kept it funky with us, and we discovered a new favorite in Flow Castle.  It would be insane for me to try and name everything in here so go brows the playlist below and grab the free download below!

Jon Bellion Previews New Album Material With GRVTY

on bellion studio grvty

We told you from DAY ONE that Jon Bellion was gonna be special but you all know that by now. The Long Island product has been grinding out making damn good music for a while now and with his first Visionary Music Group mixtape Translations Through Speakers already in the books, it looks like JB is getting ready to ramp it up again for the next album. This latest video from GRVTY shows Jon and DJ Rhetorik hanging at the home studio listening to a MONSTER tune that could end up being the intro track for the new album. Needless to say, we’re a little excited.

Logic – Welcome To Forever (Full Mixtape)

Logic - Nasty (Prod. by Don Cannon) (Official Video)

I couldn’t exaggerate how much clout every release from Logic caries in the changing music industry. Having just been signed to Def Jam Records, the kid’s been on a tear as of late and this full mixtape (supported by a HUGE tour) features some huge names such as Trinidad James, Kid Ink and TNJ favorite Jon Bellion.

Jon Bellion- Translations Through Speakers

Jon-Bellion-Translations-Through-Speakers-Album-Artwork

I’m gonna start this one by saying I couldn’t be more proud of Jon Bellion. I’ve been following Jon from the time he was grinding away on Long Island way before he knew Visionary Music Group and ThisSongIsSick.com premieres were awaiting him. The talent that this kid possesses is mindblowing; he wrote, recorded and produced the ENTIRE project himself and his ability to artfully dip into 5 genres at the same time makes his sound refreshing and only furthers the point that his music should be heard by everyone within earshot. In addition to Paper Planes, LIFE, Dead Man Walking, The Wonder Years, the album contains 6 new tracks including a collaboration with Blaque Keyz called For The Dreamers which is my current favorite of the newest material. TNJ extends a huge congrats to Jon and the rest of the Visionary Team for putting out an unbelievable product and if you want proof that we were on this way early, check the artist spotlight we did for Jon on DAY ONE of this site’s existence.

Jon Bellion – The Making Of The Wonder Years (Behind The Scenes)

Jon Bellion - The Making Of The Wonder Years (Behind The Scenes)

I always look forward to writing about Jon Bellion. We gave you the debut of his brand new single The Wonder Years (which I’ve honestly had on repeat for the last 7 days) and just today we get the behind the scenes footage of Jon putting the track together courtesy of Visionary Music Group. VMG head honcho Chris Zarou certainly knows good talent when he sees it (his other artists include Logic and formerly Tayyib Ali) and having been a supporter since day one of the site, it’s amazing to see him get the credit he deserves. This three minute video really takes you into the mind of his production process and really lets you get to know what kind of guy he is; his energy is crazy infectious and it only takes one sample to get you hooked. We’re eagerly awaiting the release date for Translations Through Speakers but I wouldn’t be surprised if you started hearing this pop up on radio stations soon!

Jon Bellion – Dead Man Walking (Official Video)

Jon-Bellion-Dead-Man-Walking-Music-Video

I really promise I’m not the guy that spends all of his time saying “I told you sooooo” but seriously WHAT did I say about Jon Bellion. It’s unbelievable that since the time we’ve started this blog Jon’s been picked up by Visionary Music Group, performed on stage at Binghamton when Logic made his stop here this past spring and is getting his stuff premiered at ThisSongIsSick.com. His free album Translations Through Speakers will be coming out shortly through the Visionary Team and we couldn’t be more excited! Get familiar with his LIFE and Paper Planes videos and check out his SoundCloud below if you wanna comb through some of his older stuff!

BroBible’s White Girl Wasted Weekend Power Hour #006

Thank god for the weekend (which is beginning a day early as it should) because it’s been a damn long week people and what better way to welcome in the light at the end of the tunnel than with another installment of the White Girl Wasted Weekend Power Hour. Get the brew and shot glasses so that we can all get a little weird; this hour of music is gonna get the place moving! This week’s must-have nods go to TNJ newcomers KAM Royal & Rob Lo, the monstrosity of a trap release from RL Grime remixing Satisfaction and Jon Bellion’s newest single LIFE.

©. Castro – Higher

After already proving to be masterful at picking up and coming talent in Logic and Jon Bellion, Visionary Music Group’s next product ©. Castro already has a bright future as far as TNJ is concerned! His single Higher has the well crafted sound that #RattPack producers OB and 6ix have come to perfect and it should come as no surprise that the bars are just ridiculous. You know this crew is only on the way up and TNJ can’t wait to follow along as they continue the climb.

Jon Bellion – LIFE

I’m still in a state of shock the amount of success Jon Bellion is having. Don’t get me wrong; I’m not shocked as in surprised, just shocked that the statement is true that good comes to those that deserve it. I’ve followed Jon for well over a year now and the consistent passion he brings to his music day in and day out is unmatched by anyone I’ve ever met. This is the video for the next single off his upcoming project Translations Through Speakers to be released later this fall on Visionary Music Group, the same guys behind the careers of Logic & Tayyib Ali. After you see this video check out his lead single Paper Planes and the making of video we got along it to get a more intimate look at the man behind the mic.

Jon Bellion – The Making of Paper Planes (Behind The Scenes)

Having already given the formal introduction to Jon Bellion’s first single, Paper Planes, from his debut album Translations Through Speakers, allow me to give you an intimate look at the creative process. A camera follows Jon into the studio as he constructs the track, turning a bird call sample into a musical instrument, and displaying his overall undeniable musical talent. He even starts the video with a preview of a song he produced and wrote for upcoming artist Cody Simpson, which we’ll be sure to keep an eye on!
