Jauz has announced a huge 23-track concept album, The Wise and The Wicked, out on 31st August via his label, Bite This.
Composed of four separate chapters the concept album looks to showcase the versatility of the producer and his dynamic diversity. Speaking about the album, Jauz, AKA Sam Vogel said;
“When I’m writing music, half of my brain wants to write fun, crazy bangers for parties. This is represented by ‘The Wicked.’ The other half of the time I want to write emotional, intelligent, experimental music that feeds the “inner artist” in myself, which is represented by ‘The Wise.’ The middle ground, is a blend of the melodic, emotional parts of my music paired with high energy drops and climaxes, is represented by ‘The United’.”
The Wise and The Wicked includes collaborations with Kiiara, Example, DJ Snake and others. Set in a dystopian future, The Wise and The Wicked follows the tale of two sides of society trapped in an apocalyptic world, with the Californian DJ announcing his intention to split his creative personality across both sides during future sets.
“Right now, a Jauz set is ‘The United’, it’s that mix of both sides, music full of emotion,” he adds. “But in future, I definitely want to perform ‘The Wicked’ sets, a kind of underground bunker for rave music, and then also only ‘The Wise’ sets. The real goal is to have these three personalities that I can combine.” – Jauz
Jauz is gearing up for a huge B2B2B set with Slushii and Netsky at Reading & Leeds Festival, SW4 and Creamfields this bank holiday weekend.
