jives' "Strawberry Girl" is definitely a curve ball.

When I first started listening to the track I felt in this elevating, extremely spacious and zen fairy tale which blends Bonobo's downtempo sound and r&b vocal samples. Then that bass kicked my head and things massively slowed down. I had never heard of jives, but in that second I was hooked.

"Strawberry Girl" is the title track off his upcoming EP scheduled for later this month and a damn good reason to be on alert when it comes to the up-and-coming Aussie producer.

Oh yeah, remember that slow-motion bass thingie? Scratch it because 2:29 is the grooviest time of your life. Honestly, this tune is a roller coaster and I seriously love roller coasters.
