Australian sound explorer Jad Lee has been blessed with a global view of the world. A member of Aussie indie-dance band MITZI and half of the Brisbane/Los Angeles indie-pop duo Twiggy Lashes, he’s released standout club tracks on Exploited Records, Retrofit and Club Sweat.
On his upcoming four-track Namibian Gold EP for Munk‘s Toy Tonics label, Lee juxtaposes house grooves, deep chords and synths with gorgeous African rhythms, beats and vocals for a euphoric effect.
“I’ve always been in love with African music, Afrobeat/polyrhythmic stuff mostly,” Lee tells us of the EP’s inspiration. “I was listening to a lot of old Afro stuff at the time and it inspired the whole EP. A touch of Africa and a touch of me in every track!”
We’re thrilled to world premiere “Namibian Gold” (Gold Version) from Lee’s new four-tracker. Have a listen below, and be sure to check out the brilliant EP when it’s released next week.
Jad & The Ladyboy’s Namibian Gold EP is released March 16 on Toy Tonics. Catch Had supporting Bonobo at The TBC in Brisbane on March 14.
