With his energized style of synthesizing grime, deep house, g-house, and trap all into one, Calum John is one of my newly found favorite jackin’ house producers. The 20-year-old South Yorkshire native has made one of my favorite tracks this year, “Get Low.” This hectic track switches between a heavy traphouse beat to some seriously grimy jackin’ house. I usually don’t like MC’s on house songs, but the grimy sound is just straight thuggin’ and is sure to flood the dancefloor.
Another one of his songs, “She’s a Bitch,” starts out like a progressive house track with a fly old school Missy Elliot sample, but then the bass comes in menacingly and is complimented perfectly by Missy’s vicious flow throughout. Calum’s remix to deadmau5‘s “Raise Your Weapon” starts off similar to the original–very progressive, very sexy–but then bursts into a heavy deep jackin’ house track which I personally like much more than the original.
From what I’ve heard so far, this kid has an extremely promising future ahead of him, as his production is just some booty-shaking hyphy party music. Be sure to Like his Facebook and SoundCloud, as this rising star is sure to absolutely blow up these next couple of years!
