“Water”. is from his new music project entitled ZODIAX EP
ZODIAX I is his first EP, following his two beat tapes, “The Chillhop Era” and “Levitation”, and sets the direction for the Zodiax quadrilogy dedicated to the star signs and the four elements. “ZODIAX I” is all about the zodiac signs of pisces, cancer, scorpio and their common element water. JAKSPIN delved deep into the abyss, the emotionality, their kindness, the melancholy, fluidity and sensitivity of water signs. Reduced to the core elements,
each song is an intense stirring journey to underwater soundscapes, always entwined around concisely knocking hip hop beats.
