Jagwa About His New EP ”Chinese Food”
@Jagwa876 EP release Party
International recording artiste Jagwa recently hosted a release party for his EP ‘’CHINESE FOOD’’ at Katra Lounge in Manhattan. The party was a private event, attended by friends, family and a few well-wishers. Music was provided by New York’s finest DJ’s such as Steelie Bashment, DJ Boof, DJ King Jane and 2FP.
‘’It was a very fun atmosphere. Everyone enjoyed themselves. There was an open bar with food being served so everyone could be comfortable while listening to the project. We had a raffle with the winners receiving copies of the project’’. said Jagwa.
He also says ‘’ The idea for the EP came from a conversation he had with Owen “Ibez” Davidson, the co-producer of the project. We living in the western hemisphere believes that the Chinese food we see in restaurants is actually Chinese food simply, because it’s catered by Chinese people. The truth however is that the food they sell in Chinese restaurants is not sold in China and the staff themselves don’t eat what they sell us. It’s basically food catered to fit our taste and because the caterer is Chinese we deem it’s Chinese food. Likewise, me being from the islands and having an accent makes whatever song I do get viewed by others as dancehall or reggae etc. Even when the music is the furthest thing from that, people will try to classify it as something they’re familiar with just because of the accent etc. That’s where the concept for Chinese Food came from.’’’
He describe his nine track EP as ‘’ different from the norm and one of, if not the best project out right now. It’s energy driven to the last drop and there’s nothing like it out there.’’ He has a few favorite tracks on the project but his preferred one is “Stack It Up”, because of the energy of the song.
Jagwa collaborated with Styles P for the title track “Chinese Food”, Lukie D for the song “NO” and Project Pat for the track “ I Know”.
The release date for the EP is soon to be announced.
