Could there be a more intriguing release coming under the radar?? I think not. Let's take a moment to chat Zodiac bka Jeremy Rose. You may not be familiar with his name or nom de plume, but you have been singing along to his work - if not your girl. You see Zodiac was the man responsible for The Weeknd's early works - and some go as far as saying his best - on House Of Balloons (What You Need, Loft Music, The Party & The After-Party). After going separate ways, he was forced to sit along the side lines and watch as The Weeknd's new R&B waves splash onto international shores with the impact of a tsunami. No more.
Zodiac release his debut EP on Vase Records with many a curious ear awaiting to hear. Recently leaked Come ft Jesse Boykins III certainly set the tone: A sedate, sensual song with a slow plodding measure, as JB3 adds libidinous libretto as only he can. #WINNING.
GirlGirlGirl is another one of those melodious and mysterious morceaux, morose but yet amorous (I love these kind of joints). Zodiac rounds off the EP with a few more tracks with more bounce, but I quickly longer for more vocal arrangements. He may have found that void that I have been looking for more vocalists and producers to fill: dark and nebulous works. This Zodiac EP is certainly the start I've been looking for.
