Jam Thieves: In Queens
Jam Thieves have recently dropped the Queens ep on Mac II and it’s cold as ice. ‘Do It’, ‘Dry Bones’, ‘Texas’ and the title tune… and the guys are as minimal in their communication as their beats.
Either way, it’s a killer ep. With more in the works as you’ll read.
So what’s D&B like where you are over there right now? Always a great scene in Brazil.
Actually, we don’t keep up with D&B here in Brazil.
Do you guys play live a lot?
No, here in Sao Paulo has few D&B parties… but we’re confirmed on EDC Brasil in December.
This is a cold, cool, amazing ep, when did you guys start to write it?
We started to do an ep after we finish our realese with Hazard.
What tunes came when?
We did ‘Queens’ first, then ‘Texas’. The ‘Dry Bones’ tune was Randall’s idea along remix to Jaybee.
I feel it has sort of a cool American flex to it, in essence, is that true at all? Like an NYC vibe here?
Absolutely, especially ‘Texas’.
Take us into the ‘Queens’?
We tried to do something look alike with our tune, ‘Blade’ that we really like
And ‘Do it’? Such a killer, I bet it gets floors bouncing.
We use some originals elements of the music, and add an our bass line
OK. You’ve released on some labels apart from Mac II as you been so busy I think! What labels could we find you on?
Today we are exclusive Playaz Recordings artists
What inspired the great ‘Texas’ tune?
The movie of Quentin Trarantino Django.

Marvin Gaye ‘Mercy Mercy Me’
