Montreal emcee/producer dropped a solid body of work (Something You Feel) in 2012 which I highly recommend to every music lover out there. In the mean time, I got this 6 minute clip of the man in question during last year’s edition of the annual Montreal Jazz Festival. He serves a soul fuelled track ‘Man I Oughta Be’ with his awesome band Something You Feel Experience. I have seen this man live many times and it’s always a new experience watching him do his thing on stage, and it’s a plus when he is backed by a super talented band (shoutouts to Jahsun on the drums, Mark on bass and Dre on Sax).
Tune in and check out the vibes.

MC/Producer Jai Nitai Lotus is the latest of Montreal’s explosive talents (Akua, Kaytranada, Shash’U). After releasing his highly-acclaimed album Something You Feel ( http://jainitailotus.bandcamp.com/), URB Magazine raved “Jai Nitai Lotus is about to release one of the most interesting hip-hop albums…Something You Feel. Raw, gritty, and heartfelt.” Stylistically described by Surviving the Golden Age as, “Something of a tripped out blend of Dilla, Flying Lotus, and Odd Future.”
