"Hey yo, Jack Splash...let's take 'em on some next level ish. Feel me? Let's go!" wisps Missy Elliott on the Beast-loved Jack Splash tune, I Could Have Loved You. While that song remains our staple "go-to-funk" jam, that quote deservedly earns a place in this post for all the right reasons.
Today documents the release of Jack Splash's, King Of The Beats: Volume 1, the second of three mixtapes to be released before his much-anticipated full-length album AND film, Technology And Love Might Save Us All... out in May via J-Records.
In the past few months, Jack Splash has bombarded the music world with 90's throwback rap tracks and futuristic synth-pop hooks. King Of The Beats reminds us that Jack is capable of such songs, but also takes you further into his genius by revealing a number of instrumental tracks.
Each track has been carefully crafted and produced by the same hands that created music for such talented artists as T-Pain, Estelle, Shakira, Britney Spears and more. Truly, he is, the king of the beats.
