Opening the Door

Vinyl LP
The Vancouver-based DJ, producer and songwriter returns to the label he co-runs with fellow Pender Street Stepper Liam Butler with his first solo release since 2015. The eight-track album was recorded between 2015 and 2019 at Mood Hut and C'est Life Studios, and combines "inward-peering ambient jazz, On-U-inspired digital-dub and quiet storm soft rock” with the artist’s distinctive vocals and balearic and boogie grooves. All instruments on the album are performed by Jack J himself, apart from the saxophone, which is played by Linda Fox.
