“My passion for music and DJing has consumed my life ever since the day I touched my first set of turntables to be honest,” he says.
The artist says that his sound has grown immensely since then.
“‘Sandcastle’ and the majority of my album is very musical,” he says. “I am using a lot of live instruments and big vocals to lead the songs. All while having a touch of bass music as undertones leading the energy through the beautiful soundscapes that I have created.”
The man also known as Jake Osher says that electronic music is in a good state right now.
“There are so many genres and styles thriving and I think creativity is very high in dance music,” he says. “With that being said it is a very saturated market so standing out is harder than ever. That’s why my approach on ‘Sandcastle’ and the upcoming album was to make music that came out naturally and fed my soul rather than making songs with the desired outcome of playing it for a certain festival or crowd.”
Jayceeoh’s forthcoming album is Twilight 9.
“Twilight 9 came together naturally as I found my new sound over the course of the last two years,” he says. “As I get older and mature I felt the need to make songs that really spoke to me and would resonate with people on an emotional level outside of the party environment. I spent years making bangers and getting that quick fix of high energy serotonin on stage but outside of performing I found that a lot of the music was not what I wanted to listen to. I worked with some amazing vocalists on this album. The lead single ‘sandcastle’ is a collaboration with Grabbitz who is a good friend and fresh off some massive records with Illenium & Rezz. I have a record ‘Gems’ ft. rapper Sammy Adams with whom I have a long history with and toured with years ago. The album also features two songs with amazing musician and vocalist Phil Beaudreau. Phil and I are actually working on a whole other side project (PB&Jay) that sounds like Rufus Du Sol and Odesza had a baby that likes to party. The album also features collaborations and vocal features from Sam King, Lerome Swiss, Buck Rodgers, Kavale, and Medyk.”
“The Twilight 9 album title stems from wanting to incorporate a nod to my love for the game of golf,” he continues. “Twilight 9 is referenced to and end of the day round of golf when the sun is setting and everything is at peace. This music is very tranquil and vibey and just felt like the perfect title for a nine song album. (might have to toss a bonus song or two on there tho.”
Looking ahead, Jayceeoh has plenty planned for the second half of 2023.
“I am going to be rolling out the album with a new single every two weeks until the album drops mid-August,” he says. “Have a bunch of tour dates throughout North America this summer and plan to hit Asia later this year. Musically, after the album drops I have the PB&Jay project with Phil Beaudreau launching, releasing a gang of collaborations more on the high energy party tip, as well as working on the follow up album for 1000volts, my electronic meets hip-hop supergroup with rap icon Redman. You can also catch me around the country doing events and working with some of the biggest brands in golf. Got some cool stuff cooking with Top Golf and Malbon Golf to name a few.”
