Jumping Back Slash 'Paper Supply' ft. JOSIAHWISE IS THE SERPENTWITHFEET

Stream SA producer Jumping Back Slash booming "Paper Supply," featuring JOSIAHWISE IS THE SERPENTWITHFEET.


Producer Jumping Back Slash returns after a long drought with "Paper Supply," a slowly blooming track that enlists the help of Brooklyn-based vocalist (and recent Okayplayer First Look Friday feature) JOSIAHWISE IS THE SERPENTWITHFEET. The song builds patiently from an eerie soundscape into a booming progression of trickling synthesizers, SA house bass and kwaito-influenced beatwork. Both JBS and JWITSWF have been collaborating on Spoek Mathambo & DJ Spoko's upcoming Fantasma releases — check out the JOSIAHWISE-featuring "Sefty Belt" off that EP. Stream "Paper Supply" below, which will feature in Jumping Back Slash's upcoming LP due next year.
